  • Menu Plan Monday: Week of January 7, 2013


    My pantry and freezer are quite full, so I’m making a conscious effort to use up what we have, while still trying new recipes, eating healthy, and satisfying everyone in the family. Here’s what I’ve got planned for this week:

    Monday – Sashimi, rice, boiled lotus root

    Tuesday – Ham & Gruyere Gratin (using leftover frozen ham), some kind of green vegetable

    Wednesday – La Bamba Casserole (x2 so I can freeze one), salad, tortilla chips

    Thursday – Linguine with White Clam and Broccoli Sauce, bread or biscuits, fruit

    Friday – Alton Brown’s Sardine Avocado Sandwiches, Sweet Potato Fries {and grilled cheese sandwiches for the kids, probably!}

    Saturday – Leftovers

    Sunday – Dinner out

        Thanks! I haven’t made it in a LONG time, so I’ll have to let you know how it turns out 🙂
