Monday Menu Plan

I'll be honest.  I have not been menu planning.  At all.  I have even been avoiding grocery shopping.  At this point I have sufficiently depleted my stock of ready made meals in the freezer, and avoided taking the kids to the grocery store longer than is really advisable. We've had some reeeeaaallly creative meals the last few days.

Time for this mama to admit that summer is here to stay, and that means the kids need to come with me to the store.  Not that I mind so much, they're generally well behaved.  Alas, I have a child that hates to shop, and the act of getting her into the car to go to the store does not brighten anyone's day. *sigh*

Here's the plan for the week.  Super simple, as is getting to be the norm around here.

Breakfast: cream of buckwheat cereal made with sunflower milk
Lunch: leftover spaghetti with meat sauce (bison), mixed veg, plums
Dinner: Salmon, broccoli, cantaloupe

Breakfast: zucchini muffins, green smoothie
Lunch: salmon salad
Dinner: Cajun red beans and quinoa with andouille sausage, peas, raspberries and blueberries

Breakfast: bacon and pancakes
Lunch: ham wraps
Dinner: grilled steak, sweet potato skillet, green beans

Breakfast: Alexia saute sweets, green smoothie
Lunch: beef dogs
Dinner: turkey pot pie

Breakfast: Baked apples with quinoa granola topping (think apple crisp!)
Lunch: leftovers
Dinner: pasta with squash sauce, peas, strawberries

Breakfast: sauteed veggies, green protein smoothie
Lunch: sunbutter and jelly
Dinner: crispy baked lemon cod, coleslaw, grapes

Breakfast: pumpkin date donuts
Lunch: fish sticks
Dinner: crock pot pulled pork, maple glazed carrots, salad, watermelon

Enjoy your week!
