    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

    Menu Plan Monday: Week of May 25, 2015

    I had a tough time this past week, feeling overwhelmed and not a little depressed, with the end of the school year approaching and everything else that’s going on. So once again, I didn’t get to the spelt brownies that were last week’s healthy dish of the week. I’m keeping them on my to-do list, but I have to be realistic and admit that I don’t know if I’ll be able to get to them before school gets out next week. (Yes, you read correctly – next Thursday is the last day of school! It’s crazy how quickly the time goes by.)

    In the meantime, however, I do want to keep making easy, healthy dinners for my family when we’re home (although we’re out a lot this week). So, here’s my plan:

    Monday:
    Dinner – Out for Memorial Day

    Tuesday:
    Breakfast – Oatmeal
    Dinner – Slow Cooker Spinach and Artichoke Dip with pita chips and crudite

    Wednesday:
    Breakfast – Cinnamon Rolls, fruit
    Dinner – Out

    Thursday:
    Breakfast – Yogurt, granola and fruit
    Dinner – Meatloaf, some kind of veggie, garlic bread

    Friday:
    Breakfast – Blueberry Muffins
    Dinner – Out

    Saturday Dinner: Out

    Sunday Dinner: Breakfast {french toast, sausage, eggs, fruit}

    Menu Plan Monday: Week of May 18, 2015

    I ended up not getting to the spelt brownies this past week because it turned out to be a crazy week, and I did absolutely no baking. (By the end of the week, I’d even run out of eggs! Fortunately, I had some banana chocolate chip muffins in the freezer, along with Krispy Kreme donuts and bread. So breakfast was manageable with those items, plus some cereal.) The brownies are back on as this week’s healthy dish of the week. I’m anxious to see what spelt is like, although I’m a bit wary too.

    The good news is that the school year and the boys’ sports seasons are winding down, so life will be a little less chaotic … I think. Here’s my plan for this week:

    Monday:
    Breakfast – Pancakes
    Dinner – Eggplant Gratin, salad, garlic bread

    Tuesday:
    Breakfast – Cereal
    Dinner – Linguine with White Clam and Broccoli Sauce

    Wednesday:
    Breakfast – Apple Yogurt Cake
    Dinner – Salmon Furikake, rice, some kind of veggie

    Thursday:
    Breakfast – Chocolate Muffins
    Dinner – Cheeseburger Rice, steamed broccoli

    Friday:
    Breakfast – Breakfast Sandwiches
    Dinner – Cheesy Mashed White Beans With Kale, Parmesan, and a Fried Egg

    Saturday Dinner: Dinner out

    Sunday Dinner: Dinner out
