It’s been a very busy summer!  We just returned from week up north, and after all that greasy fattening resort food, we need to get back into the meal planning routine!  We’re stepping up our vegetarian intake this week, and keeping our carniverous night to Friday only.

This week our menu looks like this:

Monday: Big bowl of noodle soup & salad, veggie burgers for the kids

Tuesday:Broccoli polenta served with “meat” (seitan) with broccoli & spinach, salad (recipes from Veganomicon)

Wednesday: Out for dinner with the family, back to school shopping for the kids!

Thursday: Homemade pizza

Friday: Mayonnaise-chutney/curry chicken, rice, sauteed veggies

Summer is a time of fun, and it’s so busy!  I think that here in Canada we try to cram so much into the summer months, since it’s so short!  Anyway, here’s our simple (hopefully) meal plan for the week.

This week our menu looks like this:

Monday: Veg burgers & noodles

Tuesday: Asian Tilapia served over spaghetti noodles, green vegetable & salad

Wednesday: Spinach Souffle Roll (Or some variation of it), a variation of Quinoa & Wheatberry Pilaf, green salad

It’s been such a hectic couple of months here in our household. The school year is winding down (although it’s not done yet) and I’ve been doing a lot of tutoring and other preparations. Makes meal planning (and cooking, actually) very difficult! Only 2 more weeks, then I’m done! Yay!

Good morning!

This is my last full teaching week, and I’m busy busy busy! I’ve got lots of students (I tutor) to help get ready for exams, and I’m just very busy! To top it off, we’re off to visit family for the latter half of the week, so there will be very little cooking going on around here!

Visit the Org Junkie for more exciting meal plans. There are lots of them. Go and see!

Monday – Leftovers from the weekend. There’s takeaway chinese food, yummy curry chicken from Friday, and some other random items.

Tuesday – Tortellini pasta with creamy mushroom sauce, green salad – we never did have it last week

Wednesday – Friday – off with family

Have a good one. Keep watching this space for a wonderful food announcement sometime this summer!

Good morning! It’s a holiday weekend up here in Canada. Fireworks, sleeping in (ha!) and all that. I took an unplanned break the last 2 weeks, both from menu planning, and blogging. As a teacher, I’m just really busy this time of year!

As you may notice, we’ve been trying to eat more salads. We buy a big tub of mixed lettuces, keep cut up cucumbers and peppers in the fridge, and just toss with a favourite dressing for an instant salad!

Monday – Planned for wraps, but some of the ingredients were not available at my grocery store. So I’ll probably make some sort of modified bean burritos

Tuesday – BBQ burgers, corn & some sort of vegetable, green salad

Wednesday – Chili couscous pie. (3 bean veggie chili)

Thursday – Tortellini pasta with creamy mushroom sauce, green salad

Friday – Curry-mayonnaise chicken, basmati rice, green vegetable, salad

Menu Plan Monday: April 28th

Meal Plan Monday

Good morning! The festival of Passover is over (thank goodness), so it’s back to the status quo around here. Last week was overwhelming in its meat content, so we will be returning to our flexitarian lifestyle with a vengeance this week!

Visit the Org Junkie for more exciting meal plans. There are lots of them. Go and see!

Monday – Cauliflower lentil soup, sauteed snow peas, crusty bread

Tuesday – BBQ burgers, corn & some sort of vegetable, green salad

Wednesday – Homemade pizza with vegetables, no homemade crust, though; green salad

Thursday – Leftovers, or raiding the freezer

Friday – Mayo-curry chicken on basmati rice

Saturday – Corn chowder and a nice homemade bread (need recipes for both!)

Menu Plan Monday: April 21st, Passover Edition

Meal Plan Monday

Good morning!  This week, Jewish people around the world will be celebrating the festival of Passover.  In a nutshell, this means that we avoid any bread or other items made with wheat.  The exception, of course, being Matzah, a flat, unleavened cracker.

The holiday started on Saturday night with the first of two big dinners (called Seders).  Our menu this week will follow Passover tradition.  Unfortunately for me, this holiday is a big meat eating holiday (after removing all grains, pasta & legumes, there’s not much left), so my menu will reflect that.  By the way, my husband, a (semi) reformed meat & potatoes guy loves Passover.  Me? Not so much.

Visit the Org Junkie for more exciting meal plans. There are lots of them. Go and see!

Monday – Leftovers from our dinner last night.  Brisket, Matzah farfel (a kind of stuffing), vegetable puffs, cauliflower-leek kugel, french beans with mango & pine nuts

Tuesday – Dinner @ my husband’s grandmother.  Likely to consist of 4 kinds of meat, boiled potatoes and an iceberg lettuce salad.  Seriously.  I’ll probably eat only chicken soup.

Wednesday – Matzah lasagna. (finally, meat free!).  This is just like a regular lasagna, but instead of noodles, pieces of matzah are used.  Green salad.

Thursday – Baked chicken breast with honey mustard topping; roast potatoes; some sort of green vegetable (snow peas, perhaps)

Friday – EIther a roasted turkey breast, or a baked salmon fillet.  Quinoa (the only grain actually allowed on passover) and a vegetable.

Saturday – another night of leftovers.  Probably a matzaroni & cheese casserole for lunch.

Sunday – It’s all over!  Probably take away chinese food! Yum!

If you celebrate, Happy Passover!!
