Menu - July 12 - 17

Okie dokie, then. Last week was all sorts of fubar for all sorts of reasons. With the husband out of town, the kid and I pretty much just foraged all week. Neither one of us felt like eating much anyway.

So! This week...

The husband is back in town and I have high hopes for this week but, eh, we'll see. It's not even noon on Monday and already my day is scrambled.

I recently borrowed the book Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day by Jeff Hertzberg and Zoe Francois (their website is here) and had hoped to try their method of bread mixing/making today but I don't think I'll get to it. Not today. I'll shoot for Wednesday or Thur...oh, not Thursday. Grocery shopping is on Thursday. Maybe Friday, then, since Fridays are cook-a-thon days anyway. We'll see. When I do get to it, I'll take some pictures and share my thoughts.

Oh, and I'm dropping the chores list from the menu because that's not what these menu posts are about. They're about food. So... menu!

As always, much gratitude for Laura at I'm an Organizing Junkie for hosting Menu Plan Monday.


choice of:
     cold cereal
     cheesy eggs (actually egg beaters, but whatever)
     banana and peanut butter
     hard boiled egg and cheese

lunch: IHOP (after the Minions movie)
dinner: frozen pizza/foraging

lunch: tuna sandwiches, fruit
dinner: parmesan pasta bake, salad

lunch: chicken legs, rice, random veggies and/or fruit
dinner: fish, broccoli, corn, salad

lunch: chicken legs, rice, random veggies and/or fruit
dinner: hamburger noodle casserole, salad
baking (maybe): bread

lunch: ---OUT---
dinner: leftovers

lunch: grilled cheese sandwiches, fruit
dinner: tacos
cooking for weekend: chicken spaghetti casserole

lunch: leftovers OR sandwiches, fruit
dinner: chicken spaghetti casserole (trying for the first time), salad

The chicken spaghetti casserole is finding its way onto our menu for the first time but I've heard such great things about it. With luck, it'll stay in the rotation of weekend meals because I just don't have enough meals in that category. (No, really, I don't. I need more recipes that serve 6+ people.)

So, that's the our meal plan for the week. What's in your menu? (Am I the only one that reads that question and immediately thinks of the Capital One credit card commercials "What's in your wallet? Ugh. I need to go bleach my brain...)

Blue skies, world.
