  • Menu Plan Monday: Week of June 23, 2014

    I’m slowly getting the hang of our summer routine, and feeling like things are going pretty well. I can’t believe we’re already into the last half of June, though. The weeks really do fly by!

    The weather has been getting warmer, so I’ve been trying not to use my oven much. I will have to plan for baking days, when I use all the big baking dishes. I’ve gotten really good with my toaster oven, but the largest dish I can get in there is an 11×7 IKEA dish. So if I’m making something in a 13×9 dish, I have to use the big oven. I haven’t figured out when or if I’ll do my baking day this week, but here’s what I’m planning for dinner this week:

    Monday – Beef Tacos with fixings

    Tuesday – Pasta with Cauliflower, Raisins and Anchovies

    Wednesday – Slow Cooker Eggplant Parmesan with Fresh Mozzarella, Garlic Bread, Salad

    Thursday – Bacon-Wrapped Tofu, Rice, some kind of veggie

    Friday – Breakfast {blueberry pancakes, sausage or bacon, fruit}

    Saturday – Dinner out

    Sunday – Dinner out

    Menu Plan Monday: Week of June 16, 2014

    We’ve got more busy days ahead, but at least the kids are in camp part-time this week, and I’m starting to remember how our summer flowed last year. So I’m trying to stick with lighter and/or make-ahead meals, as follows:

    Monday – Three-Step Taco Salad

    Tuesday – Cavatappi Niçoise

    Wednesday – Summer Farfalle Salad with Smoked Salmon

    Thursday – Shredded Pork Hash, some kind of veggie

    Friday – Leftovers

    Saturday – Dinner out

    Sunday – Dinner out

    Menu Plan Monday: Week of June 9, 2014

    I think it’s going to take some time to adjust to our new schedule, aka summer vacation. I’m going to try to stick to simple, easy and quick meals while I get used to the flow of our days. So here’s what I’m thinking for dinners this week:

    Monday – Dinner out

    Tuesday – Summer Farfalle Salad with Smoked Salmon

    Wednesday – Pasta with Cauliflower, Raisins and Anchovies

    Thursday – Three-Step Taco Salad

    Friday – Breakfast {blueberry pancakes, sausage, fruit}

    Saturday – Dinner out

    Sunday – Dinner out {Happy Father’s Day to all the dads!}

    Tuesday – Pasta Bolognese, Salad, Garlic Bread

    Wednesday – Dinner out

    Thursday – Dinner out

    Friday – Dinner out

    Menu Plan Monday: Week of May 26, 2014

    We’ve got a surprisingly easy week coming up, but I’m still taking it easy with favorite {read: easy} meals, and trying to create margin for other things that I want/need to get done. I don’t know if a pantry challenge will be feasible during the summer, with the boys’ practice schedules, but I’m hoping to do one and clear out a good portion of my cabinets. I think it will be doable, with some careful planning …

    In the meantime, here’s what I’ve got on tap for dinner this week:

    Monday – Kalua Pork, rice, some kind of veggie {didn’t get to this last week}

    Tuesday – Alton Brown’s Sardine-Avocado Sandwiches

    Wednesday – Bacon-Wrapped Tofu, Rice, some kind of veggie

    Thursday – Pasta Bolognese, Salad, Garlic Bread

    Friday – Dinner out

    Saturday – Overnight Caramel French Toast, Bacon, Fruit

    Sunday – Cheesy Mashed White Beans With Kale, Parmesan, and a Fried Egg
