  • Menu Plan Monday: Week of May 12, 2014

    This week is a tricky one, because I’m expecting events to pop up at the last minute. I’m thinking dinner should be a make-ahead meal almost every night, since I won’t know when I’ll be home to get it ready … So here’s the plan:

    Monday – Pasta with Roasted Cauliflower, Raisins and Anchovies

    Tuesday – Salmon Furikake, Rice, some kind of veggie

    Wednesday – Slow Cooker Eggplant Parmesan

    Thursday – Chicken Pasta Salad with Chopped Broccoli

    Friday – Breakfast {cinnamon rolls, sausage, eggs, fruit}

    Saturday – Dinner out

    Sunday – Alton Brown’s Sardine-Avocado Sandwiches

    Menu Plan Monday: Week of May 5, 2014

    Last week went better with my focus on prepping meals for the week on Monday. But on Friday night, my kitchen sink got clogged and we haven’t been able to fix it. The plumbing company we use said they would charge $120 per hour over the weekend, or $80 per hour on a weekday. We’ve decided to endure the inconvenience and wait until Monday. We’re hoping we can get an early appointment and have it fixed right away, but there’s always the possibility that they won’t make it out until Tuesday. But I’ve got my fingers crossed.

    In the meantime, however, it makes my meal planning a little difficult. After all, I can’t cook if I can’t wash dishes. So, here is my tentative meal plan, contingent on me having a working kitchen by Monday night!

    Monday – Cold cut sandwiches, crudite, fruit, chips

    Tuesday – Chicken Pasta Salad

    Wednesday – Dinner out

    Thursday – Spanish Tortilla, Salad, Bread

    Friday – Overnight Caramel French Toast, Sausage, Fruit

    Saturday – Dinner out

    Sunday – Dinner out {Happy Mother’s Day!}

    Menu Plan Monday: Week of April 21, 2014

    I didn’t realize what a jam-packed week we have coming up until I started to plan this week’s meals! I’m not quite sure how we’re going to manage, since – if I’m being totally honest – this prepping on Monday thing I’ve been trying to do has not worked out that great. But maybe I just have to get the hang of it, and this week will go better …

    Monday – Pasta Bolognese, Salad, Garlic Bread

    Tuesday – Dinner out

    Wednesday – Ground Turkey Nachos, Salad

    Thursday – Dinner out

    Friday – Sandwiches, Chips, Fruit

    Saturday – Dinner out

    Sunday – Breakfast {cinnamon rolls, bacon or sausage, eggs, fruit}

    Menu Plan Monday: Week of April 14, 2014

    My meal prep plan for last week didn’t go off quite as I’d envisioned, but I still think it’s a great idea in theory so I’m giving it another shot this week. Here’s what I’m thinking for dinners:

    Monday – Chicken Enchiladas, Refried Beans, Salad {plus I’m going to make the leftover chicken into freezer burritos; dice the potatoes for the hash; and prep veggies, depending on what I find that looks good at the market}

    Tuesday – Roast Pork Hash {using leftover kalua pork from a couple of weeks ago}, fried egg, some kind of vegetable

    Wednesday – Ham, Cheese & Broccoli Strata

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

    Friday – Dinner out

    Saturday – Dinner out

    Sunday – {still working out plans}
