Menu Monday 7/6

Heather says:
Well, our routine is already being thrown for another loop. As part of my ongoing effort to get back on track, I’m posting our menu plan. I do this as an exercise in transparency and accountability.  To that end, I should note that I completely fell off the menu plan wagon in June (OK probably much earlier), but I’m working to get back on track.

  • Monday – Beef fajita skewers, black beans and rice, grilled corn on the cob
    Yes, there are two starches, but that corn needs to be used fast.
  • Tuesday – Veggie calzones
    For those playing along at home, I suppose you could call them our homemade Hot Pockets.
  • Wednesday – C.O.R.N.*
  • Thursday – Zucchini lasagna, Caesar Salad
    I’m replacing the middle layer of noodles with zucchini & mushrooms
  • Friday – Lowcountry Boil, green beans
  • Saturday – Family Sub Night, raw vegetables, chips
  • Sunday  – BBQ chicken (dry rub, spatchcock style cooking), broccoli salad, cucumbers in sour cream with dill

*Clean Out Refrigerator Night

Tell me, Home Eccers, what’s on your menu?

For several hundred other menus be sure to check out Organizing Jukie’s Menu Plan Monday.

*Edited to note* It’s a good idea to take a quick peek at the weather before planning the menu. Monday and Tuesday are being swapped, as thunder rumbles in the distance.

    Lowcountry Boil sounds like a great summertime dinner!

    I’m not venturing out on the limb of full-out menu planning yet, but my weekly planning sheet has a spot for putting in a dinner idea for each day, if I feel like I want to think ahead and write it down.

    What I *am* doing is working on a plan for meal preps – I’m working up a multi-purpose meat sauce to freeze in batches, to be used as a starter for various meals. A work in progress, but I’m making up about 10 pounds of hampburger’s worth of sauce this afternoon!
