  • Menu Plan Monday: Week of July 7, 2014

    The weather has gotten much hotter, so I really have to think about whether turning on the oven is worth it. Though I have some ripe bananas that are just begging to be made into banana bread (but I may make a half-recipe and bake it in my toaster oven in an 11×17 pan).

    It’s also going to be something of a crazy week, so I’m sticking with tried-and-true recipes that come together quickly or can easily be made well ahead of time.

    Monday – Chicken and Broccoli Pasta Salad

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

    Wednesday – Pasta Bolognese, Salad, Garlic Bread

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

    Friday – Overnight Caramel French Toast, Bacon, Fruit {or possibly dinner out}

    Saturday – Dinner out

    Sunday – Dinner out

    Menu Plan Monday: Week of June 30, 2014

    We’re not going anywhere for the holiday weekend, so I’m hoping to get some stuff done around the house, including some good baking. Anyone have a bread recipe they want to share? I was talking about baking bread with someone today, and now I can’t stop thinking about it :)

    Monday – Pasta with Cauliflower, Raisins and Anchovies

    Tuesday – Bean & Cheese Enchiladas, Mexican Rice, Salad

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

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

    Friday – Dinner out

    Saturday – Dinner out

    Sunday – Overnight Caramel French Toast, Bacon, Fruit

    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 Ni├žoise

    Wednesday – Summer Farfalle Salad with Smoked Salmon

    Thursday – Shredded Pork Hash, some kind of veggie

    Friday – Leftovers

    Saturday – Dinner out

    Sunday – Dinner out

    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!}
