Menu plan, Week of February 13-February 19
Hey everyone! Sorry for the late hour that I am posting my menu plan. Since I don’t blog on Sunday, I like to write these posts on Saturdays but we had an Open House here this weekend so my weekend was crazy leaving me no time for blogging.
Mondays are a busy day in our household. It’s my errand day with both of my older kids having music lessons, and grocery shopping at several stores to do among other things. I’m just now getting a few spare minutes to post before we head out the door yet again! Whew!
You will also see that busyness reflected in my menu plan as several meals that I was planning on making last week are making a reappearance again as I didn’t do very well planning out my week last week-between getting our school work done and being sure the house was perfect for the open house, it was about all I could do to remember to dress myself and my children
every most days. Hopefully, this week will be a bit easier to stay on track.
- Breakfast: steel-cut oatmeal
- Lunch: Homemade egg McMuffins (on 100% whole wheat English muffins), fruit, greek yogurt
- Dinner: Black Bean stew , corn bread, salad (a holdover from last week that I never got around to making. Have you noticed that happens a lot around here?)
- Breakfast: Healthy, Hearty, Whole Grain and Nut Pancakes (We usually have these on Wednesdays but we are deviating this week because I always make heart-shaped strawberry pancakes for Valentine’s Day. This will be he first time in 12 years that I won’t be with my Valentine on Valentine’s Day. )
- Snack: almonds, green smoothies
- Dinner: Stuffed Cabbage casserole
- Breakfast: Scrambled eggs, green smoothies
- Lunch: grilled cheese, fruit, sliced carrots
- Dinner: Leftover from Monday’s dinner (My Wednesday evening Bible Study is back in session so I try to plan leftovers or crock pot meals that I can get ready early in the day so we can eat and get out the door in time for our evening activities)
- Breakfast: homemade granola with milk/yogurt (I don’t eat the granola-while it is homemade and made with quality ingredients, it still has plenty of brown sugar and calories in it. I like to try to keep my breakfast calories to 300-400 calories total so I usually make up some eggs over medium or a quick omelet when the kids have this)
- Lunch: Slim bagels spread with goat cheese and homemade jam, green smoothies
- Dinner: Crockpot chicken tacos (this is actually more of a stew, we don’t eat it on tortillas or anything-no idea why I call it tacos except that it would be great as a taco filling), sliced avocado
- Breakfast: Homemade granola with milk or yogurt
- Lunch: Zucchini boats, cottage cheese, fruit
- Dinner: Pizza night! The flax seed crust was a hit last week!
- Breakfast: Quick cook coffee cake (This provides leftovers for Sunday’s getting everyone ready for church madness. This is another one I don’t eat because 1) my kids could finish the whole cake off themselves and 2) the sugar content is too much for me), 3-egg omelet (me)
- Lunch: Quesadillas, green smoothies, kale chips
- Dinner: Maple and Brown Sugar Pork Tenderloin, baked sweet potatoes, salad
- Breakfast: Leftover coffee cake (confession: I normally skip breakfast on Sundays because getting four kids up and ready for church and trying to make myself look halfway decent leaves little time for breakfast-making, unless I want to get up at 5 a.m. Which I don’t.)
- Lunch: Lunch out
- Dinner: Leftovers (I try to make Sunday a true day of rest, so leftovers are an easy option for dinner. We usually have enough from various meals throughout the week to piece together a hodge-podge of goodies that together make a complete meal.)
