Menu Plan Monday – Busy Week!
It was so nice having a plan last week! I didn’t have to do any trips to the grocery store mid-week (which saves me time and gas) and we ate much healthier. I also like not having to think about it much during the week since I usually start thinking about what to have for supper around 4pm if I don’t already have some sort of plan in place.
Here’s the menu plan for this week!
(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: Just me and the kids this evening, so I’ll make pumpkin pancakes for them. That’s their favorite meal. My husband will be at church for Men’s Night and needs to take a side dish, so I’ll make him a big green salad to take along. I still have a few salad things from last week that need to be used. (Men’s Night is always heavy on the meat and dessert and low on the veggies, so he usually wants me to make him something green to take along. I’m guessing he may be the only one eating it, though!) I also need to make more chicken stock, so I’ll do that this evening.
Tuesday: MOPS! I’ll eat there and take the kids a sack supper. I volunteered to bring two pumpkin pies to the meeting.
Wednesday: Shepherd’s Pie – I have a lot of random veggies in the fridge that need to be used up and this dish is great for that. I”ll use ground venison instead of lamb.) Incidentally, does anyone else think of this quote from “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” when you talk about lamb? I love that movie.
Saturday and Sunday: Either leftovers or homemade pizza (with half white and half whole wheat flour).
