Menu Plan Monday – Back to Planning!
I’ve been slacking on meal planning lately and need to get back to it. So I decided to do the Plan It-Don’t Panic challenge that Stephanie over at Keeper of the Home started. This is the third week of the challenge, but I figure better late than never. :) Meal planning makes my week so much easier and we eat a lot healthier if I get our main meal planned out for the week on Monday morning.
Meal Plan for the week of October 10-16
(We decide that morning what we are going to have based on how many times my husband hit the snooze button.) :)
Eggs and cheese grits
Oatmeal (Lately we’ve been having blueberry oatmeal and using some of the fresh blueberries I got this summer and then froze.)
Natural peanut butter and local raw honey on whole wheat bread
Cream cheese on whole wheat tortilla
fruit and/or veggies
Salad with homemade dressing
Monday: Big huge salad (with green lettuce–not iceberg lettuce. And no olives.)
Tuesday: Asian Beef with Snow Peas (and other veggies) — I’ll make this with venison back strap instead of with beef and serve over brown rice.
Wednesday: Sweet Potato and Coconut Soup — This is a recipe I got from the UK. A sweet couple from church had us over and served this and I liked it so much, I got the recipe. Our neighbor brought us a bunch of sweet potatoes from his garden, so we’ll be using those. (If you are interested in the recipe, let me know, and I can post it later this week.)
Thursday: Japanese Chicken Salad
Friday: Veggie Calzones (I’ll use this pizza dough recipe.)
Saturday and Sunday: Leftovers (also known as C.O.R.N. — Clean Out Refrigerator Night)
