    Menu Plan Monday | Chief Family Officer

    I’m loving smoothies as the easiest way to get some extra fruit and veggies into me and the rest of the family, so stay turned for my favorite recipe later this week. Meanwhile, life continues to be quite busy so I’m keeping my kitchen ambitions in check this week, although I have a hankering for blueberry muffins so I might have to find time to make some soon. In the meantime, here’s my plan for this week:

    Monday – take out from Pizza Rev, per my son’s request

    Tuesday – Chicken and Broccoli Casserole

    Wednesday – Roasted Cauliflower and Sardine Pasta {didn’t get to this last week}

    Thursday – Poke Bowl {recipe coming soon} + Broiled Salmon for the kids

    Friday – Potato and Broccoli Frittata

    Saturday – Leftovers

    Sunday – Breakfast {French toast, sausage, fruit}

    My Shopping List:
    Cauliflower (1 head)
    Potato (a bag; I’ll process and freeze the extra for future frittatas and hash)
    Sashimi grade salmon
    Masago
    Seaweed Salad
    Extra-firm Tofu
    Imitation crab
    Breakfast sausage
    In-season produce

    I didn’t have nearly as much time last week as I had thought I would, but I managed to get everything organized for our taxes, so that’s no small thing to cross off my list. But this week, I would really like to do some baking!

    Here’s my plan for this week:

    Monday – Kalua Pork, rice, sauteed cabbage

    Tuesday – Garlic Cheddar Chicken Strips, garlic bread, some kind of veggie

    Wednesday – Sandwiches, chips, fruit

    Thursday – Roasted Cauliflower and Sardine Pasta

    Friday – Broccoli Melts, Corn Chowder

    Saturday – Breakfast {waffles or pancakes, bacon, fruit}

    This weekend is a crazy one, and next weekend is even crazier, but the week in between actually looks to be fairly calm – which I’m so excited about! And the unusually hot weather is supposed to cool down too, so I am going to indulge in some baking. I’m thinking banana bread, Brownie Cookies, and banana pudding.

    Meanwhile, I really didn’t stick to my menu plan last week, so this week’s menu will include a lot of repeats of last week’s. Here’s my plan for this week:

    Monday – Roast Beef Hash with Egg, some kind of veggie

    Tuesday – Egg Salad Onigirazu

    Wednesday – Cheesy Chicken Tater Tots Casserole, some kind of veggie

    Thursday – Bean & Cheese Enchiladas, salad

    Friday – Pasta Salad, Garlic Bread

    Saturday – Dinner out

    Sunday – Dinner out

    Whew! That was the best Super Bowl I can ever remember! I was rooting for Peyton Manning to go out on a high note, so I was happy with the outcome. And it makes me feel like this coming week is going to be a good one – even though it’s going to be as busy as ever! 😀

    Here’s my plan for this week:

    Monday – Take out from Pizza Rev, since we ended up not getting it last week

    Tuesday – Roast Beef Hash with Egg, some kind of veggie

    Wednesday – Egg Salad Onigirazu {totally winging this but it sounds good to me!}

    Thursday – Cheesy Chicken Tater Tots Casserole, some kind of veggie

    Friday – Pasta Salad, Garlic Bread

    Saturday – Dinner out

    Sunday – Dinner out

    This week should be a little calmer than last week, at least after mid-week. Whew! I’m still keeping the menu on the simple side, though I really want to find time to make Smitten Kitchen’s Banana Pudding.

    Here’s my plan for this week:

    Monday – Take out from Pizza Rev, which does a Monday Meal Deal that includes 4 pizzas, 4 salads, 4 drinks, and 1 dessert pizza for $40 + tax

    Tuesday – Crock Pot Cheesy Pasta and Beef Casserole, some kind of veggie

    Wednesday – Salmon Poke Bowl

    Thursday – Slow Cooker Tuna Noodle Casserole with Peas

    Friday – Quesadillas, salad

    Saturday – Breakfast {French toast, bacon, eggs, fruit}

    Sunday – Leftovers

    I’m not quite sure what happened, but all of a sudden life has gotten crazy busy so I’m trying to do easy meals, including some that can be made ahead (Wednesday and Thursday) or left alone (Monday). It definitely doesn’t look like I’ll be doing much baking this week, other than the cornbread on Monday (I’m buying the bread for Tuesday and Wednesday).

    Here’s my plan for this week:

    Monday – Slow Cooker BBQ Ribs, cornbread, some kind of veggie

    Tuesday – Broccoli & Feta Pesto Pasta, garlic bread, some kind of veggie

    Wednesday – Italian Pressed Sandwich, crudite

    Thursday – Bacon-Wrapped Tofu, rice, some kind of veggie {didn’t get to it last week because I forgot to buy tofu!}

    Friday – TK’s Hot Buttered Chicken, some kind of veggie

    Saturday – Breakfast {French toast, sausage, eggs, fruit}

    Sunday – Leftovers
