Menu Plan Monday... on Tuesday!


I am back from all of my running around. Sierra Vista, San Diego, and family staying in my home. Whew! I need a vacation from my vacation... I've slept for 11 hours each the past few nights. I am definitely worn out! I can't wait to get back into the housekeeping routine.

And that started with this week's menu. I completed the menu on Sunday morning but for some reason didn't get it typed up until this afternoon. Because I've been cooking out of a cookbook, I've been buying a lot of ingredients and my cupboards are getting rather full. This week, I planned meals around what I already had on hand instead of buying a bunch of groceries. By next week, our cupboards will be pretty bare and we'll have to do massive grocery shopping again.

Breakfast – Smoothie and banana bread
Lunch – Chow Mein
Dinner – Japanese: gyoza, udon, sushi

Breakfast – Banana French toast
Lunch – Pitas, chips, and salsa
Dinner – Homemade macaroni bake with spinach and zucchini

Breakfast – Smoothies and toast
Lunch – Stir fry with garlic sauce, pg. 182
Dinner – Breakfast burritos

Breakfast – Smoothies, cranberry orange muffins
Lunch – Subs
Dinner – Tacos

Breakfast – Waffles
Lunch – Toasted avocado sandwiches, pg. 150
Dinner – Riblets, mashed potatoes with brown gravy

Breakfast – not sure yet
Lunch – Hiking! Picnic lunch
Dinner – Pizza with onions, mushrooms, and fresh basil
