Menu Plan Monday: February 4, 2013*


Do you know how much a Mom of a three year old and 8 month old can get done in a couple hours when the children go to bed at 6:30 on Sunday night?  A LOT.  Suffice it to say I feel like I can start my work week on a good note.  It always feels good to me when I can BREATHE.

One of the ways I help myself continue to breathe during the week is having a menu plan to work from.  All ingredients on hand and ready to go.  Makes getting dinner on the table after a long day so much easier.

This week we are planning on having:

Breakfasts
  • Eggs on homemade bread, Fresh Juice
  • Oatmeal (Hubby's Favorite), Orange Juice
  • Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins, Fresh Fruit, Milk
  • Plain Yogurt with Granola, Fresh Fruit, Green Juice

Lunches
  • Leftovers
  • Green Salads

Snacks
  • Oatmeal
  • Green Smoothies
  • Cheese, Almonds, Carrot Sticks
  • Fresh Juice
  • Wine (okay this one is just for me)

Dinners
  • Harvest Soup, Homemade Breadsticks (new concoction, Hubby said it tasted earthy, I took it as a compliment as it was full of lentils, wild rice, brown rice, great northern beans and spicy sausage)
  • Chicken Pesto Pasta with Vegetables and Pine Nuts, Beets (Pesto from freezer - made in the summer when abundance of arugula was in our CSA box)
  • Nachos and Fixings
  • Waffles (Freezer) and Bacon, Fresh Fruit
  • Grilled Cheese Sandwiches with Tomatoes, Tomato/Garlic/Bacon Soup, Pickles
  • Spinach & Chevre Pizza, Fresh Juice
