I use to participate in an internet meme: Menu Plan Monday. Unfortunately, it was rather inconvenient because we make our menu plan on Thursday when we do our grocery shopping. I do enjoy reading other people's menu plans though so I thought I'd go back to sharing mine, on Thursdays, when it is convenient for me.
For a long time, about 3 years total, I didn't make dinner for the family as a whole on a regular basis, and we forewent our meal plans. Recently, our grocery budget plummeted, and I decided that a return to menus was the way to go.
With no further ado, here is the plan for this week:
Thursday: leftover soup, coleslaw, honey-apple bread
Friday: tuna mac & cheese, steamed baby-cut carrots, cornbread
Saturday: pancakes, bacon, pears
Sunday: chicken salad subs, steamed broccoli, chocolate-chip brownies
Monday: Polish sausage stir-fry, sauerkraut, Swedish limpa
Tuesday: roast chicken, roast sweet potatoes, pumpernickel
Wednesday: salmon bake, tomato-avocado salad, whole wheat buns
The highlight of this week is that I have a 5 pound bag of rye flour I am going to start experimenting with. I am going to try for a Swedish limpa and a loaf of pumpernickel. I have perfected bread with wheat flour. I can make all different kinds without a recipe. Now, I want to move on to something new!
