Menu Plan Monday (well actually Tuesday!)

One of the things I do each Sunday to make my life easier during the week is make a menu plan for the week. It takes a bit of time, but it is worth it, especially as the week goes on. It takes the guess work out of dinner time.

I will plan on posting my menu for the week each Monday, but for this week, since I am just starting, lets go with Tuesday!

Sunday, November 8, 2009
Eggs and toast
Beans and salad
M-mini meatloaves, maple walnut sweet potato mash, frozen veggies

Monday, November 9, 2009
Cereal, green drink
sandwiches (tuna or pb & j) pepper strips, chips, fruit
V-Black Bean Soup in Crockpot

Tuesday, November 10, 2009
Homemade Frozen waffles, fruit
Lentil soup with Kale in crock, fruit
M- burgers, fries, corn

Wednesday, November 11, 2009
Toast, green drink
Frozen pizza, carrot sticks, fruit
V-Mashed potato pancakes, green beans, corn

Thursday, November 12, 2009
Banana bread, Green Drink
Sandwiches (Tuna or PBJ, fruit)
M-Saucy Mexican Chicken, Rice and veggies

Friday, November 13, 2009
Cereal, fruit
International Fair (homeschool event)
V- Pepperoni/Cheese Pizza, salad

Saturday, November 14, 2009
spinach rice balls and fruit
M – Spaghetti with meatballs, salad

A few notes...

I try to alternate between vegetarian/vegan meals and meat based meals, thus the V and M before each dinner post.

I will try to post a new recipe with each menu.

Please check out Organizing Junkie for more ideas and menu plans.
