Menu Plan Monday

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.

For lots more fun menu plans, visit the Org Junkie.  You won’t be sorry!

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

Saturday: Tortellini with creamy mushroom sauce, salad

Sunday: Leftovers or a roast chicken from the grocery store

WHAT’S ON YOUR MENU THIS WEEK?

Menu Plan Monday: June 16th

Menu Plan Monday

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!

Wednesday: Baked chicken, pasta with tomato sauce, vegetable

Menu Plan Monday Header

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!

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

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
