Menu Plan Monday

I know.  It's Tuesday.  The holiday threw me off a little!

Because we had an impromptu road trip this weekend, my meal plan shifted a day.  So instead of Sunday roast, we had it Monday.  So for those of you keeping track, no, I did not make roast for dinner two nights in a row.

No, here's the plan (because I've got shopping to do!):

Monday (beef)
Breakfast: sweet potato muffins
Lunch: on your own
Dinner: pot roast, peas, quinoa

Tuesday (fish)
Breakfast: pineapple muffins
Lunch: beef hot dogs
Dinner: salmon, roasted beets and broccoli, peaches

Wednesday (pork)
Breakfast: sweet potato and black bean hash
Lunch: sunbutter and jelly
Dinner: cider pulled pork, cauliflower rice, roasted carrots, raspberry applesauce

Thursday (vegan)
Breakfast: pork sausage on biscuit
Lunch: ham wraps
Dinner: potato leek soup, spinach salad with balsamic berries

Friday (turkey)
Breakfast: cinnamon roasted butternut squash over cranberry millet
Lunch: soup
Dinner: turkey enchiladas, green beans with shallots

Saturday (beef)
Breakfast: turkey sausage and waffles with berry reduction
Lunch: sloppy joe
Dinner: grilled steak, fried cabbage, mixed veg, stovetop apples

Sunday (fish)
Breakfast: french toast
Lunch: beef burgers
Dinner: fish tacos

As always, I will fill in any holes with whatever is on sale at the market.  We rotate proteins, so the ( ) after the day indicates what the dinner protein will be, which is then held over for breakfast and lunch the next day.  Any questions or want recipes, just ask!

Have a great week.
