Menu Plan Monday

I did a terrible, horrible, rotten job of sticking to the menu plan last week.  The result?  A few holdover recipes on the menu again this week.  And fewer things to pick up at the market this week. So here's to a week of stronger health and self discipline, so that this menu plan comes closer to actually happening! :)

Menu Plan Monday

Ah yes.  February in Ohio.  It's always this time of year that I grow tired of root vegetables and apples, which are abundant all winter long.  There really is very little organic variety in stores right now, so we shall just soldier on.  Spring isn't far, and then those lovely organic veggies shall start to appear again!  Until then, I shall try to resist consoling myself with too much comfort baking.  :)

Here's the plan for this week.  As always, I link to the original recipe when possible, and it may not reflect the modifications needed to make the meal safe for our dietary restrictions.

Monday (beef)
Breakfast: fend for yourself
Lunch: Ian's popcorn turkey dogs
Dinner: Steak, roasted rainbow carrots, kale salad with apples and honey mustard dressing

Tuesday (fish)
Breakfast: pumpkin muffins with carob chips
Lunch: beef dogs
Dinner: thai fish curry over buckwheat ramen, snow peas

Wednesday (pork)
Breakfast: cream of sorghum
Lunch: sunbutter and jelly
Dinner: City Barbecue

Thursday (vegan)
Breakfast: southern green beans smothered with bacon and new potatoes
Lunch: ham
Dinner: vegetable korma over quinoa

Friday (turkey)
Breakfast: sweet potato hash
Lunch: hummus wraps
Dinner: sloppy joe stuffed baked potatoes, broccoli

Saturday (beef)
Breakfast: turkey sausage and cinnamon roasted butternut squash
Lunch: TBD
Dinner: braised short ribs, cauliflower rice, peas, spiced peaches

Sunday (fish)
Breakfast: waffles with berry reduction
Lunch: beef burgers
Dinner: shrimp stew over polenta
