  • Menu Plan Monday: Week of July 20, 2015

    Did you notice that I skipped a menu plan last week? The menu plan for the previous week just didn’t work for me because our life is so unpredictable right now. I just kind of have to go with the flow.

    But my father-in-law’s birthday is coming up, and he’s really hard to buy for so I always cook for him, which I think he likes better anyway. So, I need a menu plan this week because I want to cook and freeze a bunch of meals for him, and we’ll have just some of it for dinner that night.

    Here’s my plan for this week:

    Monday – Slow Cooker Shredded Beef Sandwiches, some kind of veggie

    Tuesday – Chicken Enchiladas, salad

    Wednesday – Turkey Meatloaf Burgers, sweet potato fries

    Thursday – Dinner out

    Friday – Breakfast (French toast, sausage, fruit)

    Saturday & Sunday – Dinner out

    Menu Plan Monday: Week of July 6, 2015

    I *think* my ten-year-old and I are pretty recovered from our bout of jet lag after returning from Japan last week. So it’s time to get back on track with cooking and meal planning, because even though our summer schedule – with all of its sports and flexibility – isn’t super conducive to a menu plan, we always eat better and healthier when I have a plan. So here’s what I’m thinking for this week:

    Monday: Dinner out

    Tuesday: Breakfast (French toast, sausage, eggs, fruit)

    Wednesday: Roasted Cauliflower and Sardines with Pasta

    Thursday: Bacon-Wrapped Tofu, rice, sauteed baby broccoli

    Friday: Slow Cooker Spinach and Artichoke Dip with pita chips and crudite

    Saturday: Chicken Pasta Salad with Broccoli

    Sunday: Leftovers or dinner out

    Menu Plan Monday: Week of June 15, 2015

    We are in the full swing of summer vacation now, with lots going on. I’ve got some big news to share later this week, but for now, my menu plan might give you a clue as to what it is:

    Monday – Shrimp Risotto, some kind of veggie

    Tuesday – Bean & Cheese Enchiladas, Salad

    Wednesday – Sweet Potato Latkes, Meatballs

    Thursday – Sunday: Out

    Menu Plan Monday: Week of June 8, 2015

    The kids are out of school! Which means our schedule is more relaxed but on the other hand I now have two children underfoot, which in itself wouldn’t be so bad except that they bicker a lot. If you’ve got any magic tricks for how you deal with your bickering children, I’m all ears.

    Our relaxed schedule also means it’s a little unpredictable, which makes planning ahead tricky. But a tentative plan is better than no plan, so here goes:

    Monday – Pasta Bolognese, garlic bread, salad

    Tuesday – Turkey Chili, cornbread, salad

    Wednesday – Roasted Chicken with Dates, Citrus, and Olives, Artisan Bread, some kind of roasted veggie

    Thursday – Tororo Soba {if I can find nagaimo, which hopefully I can – I have a craving!}, Tempura

    Friday – Spaghetti Pangrattato with Crispy Eggs {didn’t get to this last week}

    Saturday – Dinner out

    Sunday – Dinner out

    Menu Plan Monday: Week of June 1, 2015

    I can’t believe it’s the last week of school! Time is just flying by, and sure enough, I’ve had too much going on to think about the healthy dish of the week. My dishwasher has been out of commission, so between not wanting to do too much in the kitchen and having a packed schedule, baking has been at the very bottom of my to-do list. But I will get to those spelt brownies eventually.

    Meanwhile, here’s my plan for this week:

    Monday:
    Breakfast – Cereal
    Dinner – Roasted Cauliflower and Sardines with Pasta

    Tuesday:
    Breakfast – Toast
    Dinner – Slow Cooker Shredded Beef Sandwiches, some kind of veggie

    Wednesday:
    Breakfast – Cinnamon Rolls
    Dinner – Bacon-Wrapped Tofu, rice, some kind of veggie

    Thursday:
    Breakfast – Blueberry Muffins
    Dinner – Meatloaf, Garlic Bread, some kind of veggie

    Friday:
    Dinner – Spaghetti Pangrattato with Crispy Eggs

    Saturday Dinner: Out

    Sunday Dinner: Out
