  • Menu Plan Monday: Week of Jan 6, 2014

    This bout of bronchitis I’ve developed has me feeling like I spend half of my energy coughing each day, so I’m hoping it goes away soon! In the meantime, I haven’t felt much like cooking, so I’m keeping it simple this week.

    Monday – Sashimi, Rice, some kind of vegetable

    Tuesday – Pasta with Butternut Squash and Mushrooms

    Wednesday – Steak Sandwiches, Roasted carrots and fingerling potatoes

    Thursday – Dinner out

    Friday – Overnight Caramel French Toast, Sausage, Fruit

    Saturday – Dinner out

    Sunday – Dinner out

    Menu Plan Monday: Week of Dec 30, 2013

    I am still trying to regroup after getting knocked out of commission for pretty much the last week by the worst flu I’ve had in years. So I’m sending the kids off to sports camp this week, where they’ll have a lot of fun and be entertained by someone other than me, while I try to recapture the feeling that I’ve got things under control. I am hoping to do some cooking and baking this week, and I know everyone’s tired of eating out, but honestly, I won’t think it’s the end of the world if I don’t get much done in the kitchen. I just want to feel like my old self by the time I’m typing up next week’s menu!

    But here’s what I’ve got {tentatively} planned:

    Monday – Pizza Snowballs, Crudite, Fruit

    Tuesday – Sashimi, Soba, some kind of vegetable

    Wednesday – Dinner out

    Thursday – Steak Sandwiches, Creamed Spinach

    Friday – Portugese Bean Soup

    Saturday – Dinner out

    Sunday – Dinner out

    Menu Plan Monday: Week of Dec 23, 2013

    I know this week is going to be kind of crazy and I don’t even know what our schedule is going to be most of the week, but if I don’t plan something, everything will be even crazier than I know it will be. {Does that even make sense? Maybe I’m already overtired, and it’s not even Christmas yet!} So . . . here is my tentative, very flexible, probably-will-completely-fall-by-the-wayside, pseudo-Menu Plan for this week:

    Monday – Dinner out

    Tuesday – Lasagna, salad, garlic bread

    Wednesday – Overnight Caramel French Toast and fruit for breakfast; Christmas lunch, featuring a Honeybaked Ham {because you can’t get that crunchy glazed topping anywhere else}, macaroni salad, tossed salad, popovers, Streuseled Sweet Potato Casserole, and some kind of dessert

    Thursday – Leftovers

    Friday – Date night!

    Saturday – Dinner out

    Sunday – Dinner out

    Menu Plan Monday: Week of Dec 16, 2013

    The boys’ sports schedule and our social obligations are easing up, so we’ll actually be home all week! I’m still busy, but since I’ll be in the kitchen making dinner, I’m hoping to get some quick baking done as well. Here’s what I’ve got planned:

    Monday – Bacon Wrapped Tofu, Rice, Roasted Butternut Squash or Asparagus

    Tuesday – Smoked Cheddar and Lentil Burgers, Sweet Potato Fries

    Wednesday – Easy Baked Fish Fillets, Sauteed Rainbow Carrots, Garlic Bread

    Thursday – Baked Pasta with Spinach, Ricotta, and Prosciutto, Salad, Rolls
