Menu Plan Monday: Week of September 29, 2014

I thought we were finally getting fall-like weather, but I just checked the seven-day forecast and it's supposed to be 105 degrees next weekend! So any baking I want to do will have to be done on Monday (the only day forecasted to be in the 80's), or in my toaster oven. I'm thinking brownies, cupcakes, chocolate-mint bars, and vanilla meringues. It's a lot, I know, but will definitely get eaten over the course of a week. I'm hoping the meringues will ship well in a priority mail box as a gift too.

Note re. last week's menu: I really liked the Baked Polenta with Mushrooms, which made a really hearty side dish and could certainly hold its own as a meatless entree.

And here's what I'm thinking for dinners this week:

Monday - Bean & Cheese Enchiladas, Salad

Tuesday - Cheeseburger Rice

Wednesday - Linguine with White Clam and Broccoli Sauce, Garlic Bread

Thursday - Crock Pot Eggplant Lasagna, Garlic Bread, Salad

Friday - Smoked Salmon and Cucumber Chirashizushi, Spinach Ohitashi

Saturday - Breakfast (pancakes, sausage, fruit)

Sunday - Leftovers

Oh wow! You're weekly menu looks amazing! I'd love to hear what you thought of the Smoked Salmon and Cucumber Chirashizushi. It looks amazing, but I'm not sure if it would be worth the fight to try to get my kids to eat it. Maybe best to save for a date night dinner!

Hi Krista, I've made the chirashi before and it's totally delicious - perfect for summer (or crazy hot fall days, like we're getting here in SoCal). I have to admit my kids don't really eat it, but I'd go batty if I planned menus only around what they'd eat :P
