  • Menu Plan Monday: Week of June 2, 2014

    It’s the last week of school and {as you can see below} we’ve got a lot going on starting in the middle of the week, so we won’t be eating at home much. But here’s what I’m thinking for dinners:

    Monday – Shredded Pork Hash {using leftover kalua pork from last week}, Sauteed greens

    Tuesday – Pasta Bolognese, Salad, Garlic Bread

    Wednesday – Dinner out

    Thursday – Dinner out

    Friday – Dinner out

    Saturday – Dinner out

    Sunday – 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

    Menu Plan Monday: Week of May 19, 2014

    Somehow, the end of the school year manages to be extremely busy, as well as unpredictable. So dinner this week is difficult to plan. I’m going with super easy meals that come together in minutes and/or can be made ahead …

    Monday – Sashimi, rice, some kind of veggie

    Tuesday – Alton Brown’s Sardine-Avocado Sandwiches

    Wednesday – Kalua Pork, rice, some kind of veggie

    Thursday – Chicken Pasta Salad with Broccoli {didn’t get to this last week}

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

    Saturday – Dinner out {Memorial Day weekend seems so early this year!}

    Sunday – Dinner out

    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!}
