  • Menu Plan Monday: Week of 10/1/2012

    It’s weird walking into the grocery stores now because they have winter squash, especially pumpkins, and yet it’s 100 degrees outside still. I’d really like it if fall weather would arrive and stay, so that I can bake and feel more like cooking. At least I’m starting to feel settled into our crazy sports schedule, and trying to use the slow cooker more. So here’s what on tap this week:

    Monday – Miso chicken, rice, Japanese-style pumpkin

    Tuesday – Soba salad

    Wednesday – Dinner out

    Thursday – Eggplant Lasagna

    Friday – Grilled fish or shrimp skewers

    Saturday – Mac & Cheese, salad

    Sunday – Dinner out

    1. Eggplant lasagna sounds delicious and we’re using up a ton of eggplants from our CSA. Do you have a recipe you can post? Thanks!

        I was going to wing it, LOL! But I’ll see what I can do :)

        • Thanks for whatever you can share when you get around to it. I love eggplant and love lasagna, so I’m happy to build off of whatever you come up with!
