  • Menu Plan Monday: Week of 7/16/2012

    It’s not unusual for me to not want to do my weekly menu plan, especially when it’s hot, as the heat tends to make me not want to cook. But, that’s exactly why I need my menu plan – because it puts me on autopilot, and I just make dinner instead of thinking about not wanting to make it. Does that make sense?

    In any event, here’s what we’ll (probably) be having this week:

    Monday – Grilled Pizza using Artisan Bread dough, Salad

    Tuesday – Clams in White Wine Sauce, Artisan Bread, Fruit

    Wednesday – Roasted Cauliflower and Sardine Pasta

    Thursday – Sloppy Joes on Brioche Buns, some kind of veggie

    Friday – Vegetable Tempura

    Saturday – Dinner out

    Sunday – Dinner out

    1. Love the Saturday and Sunday menus! I agree, the heat makes me sluggish.
