Menu Plan Monday – Jan 9, 2012

Trying something new….

Menu Plan Monday at I’m an Organizing Junkie

I’ve seen a few blogs posts weekly menu plans and thought I’d give it a whirl.  Here goes:

Monday

lunch: Fall Quinoa with Roasted Squash and Onions (recipe coming soon)

dinner: I’ve got a monthly meeting at church and it’s tradition for the husband to make the kids spaghetti.  They usually get dessert too – he’s a sucker.  :)

Tuesday

lunch: Lettuce Wraps with Chickpea and Greek Yogurt Salad

dinner: Lentil & Rice bake, bread machine bread

Wednesday

lunch: More lettuce wraps with chickpea and greek yogurt salad.

dinner: Split Pea Soup (from the freezer), Grilled Cheese Sandwiches with the leftover bread from Tuesday

Thursday

lunch: Black Bean Soup with Caramelized Onions (recipe coming soon) – from the freezer

dinner: Out to eat.  My latest favorite restaurant, Green, has a buy-one-get-one-free coupon this week and I’m all over it.

Friday

lunch: leftovers

dinner: Vegetable Pot Pie (one of our Friday standards for movie night)

Anything exciting on your  menu for the week?

  1. Your Monday motivation is making me feel like a total slacker. I did absolutely nothing this weekend to prepare for the week. I had a good excuse, but still. That is not going to put dinner on the table. Your meals look fantastic–can I come over for lunch (and stay for dinner)?

  2. Our plan to get a homemade dinner on the table in less than 30 minutes is menu planning for the entire MONTH! I started this in November, planning for 3 weeks, taking a weekend to do most of the cooking/freezing, then enjoying the freedom of having it all done! I continued to “practice” in December (some recipes work better for this than others) and I’m happy to report that I did 4 weeks of menu planning and cooking right before I headed back to work and it’s working awesome! My husband helps and he’s really getting into it and it’s one less thing I have to worry about with juggling daycare drop-off and a new job.
