I'm seriously in need of getting back into the habit of planning and following a weekly menu plan. We've gotten really bad at eating on the fly and just grabbing whatever, or take-out which is far too costly for our one-income household. So, since I'm back to blogging, I'll get back to participating in the Menu Plan Mondays from Organizing Junkie.
My oldest has decided to throw me a curve ball and announced last week that she was now going to be a vegetarian. Should be no problem, right? After all, I am vegetarian about 90% of the time. Not so easy with her though, she is such a picky eater - I'm pretty sure she'd be ok with eating nothing but vege-burgers and cheese pizza. We've already discussed that we will support her choice entirely however, she will need to broaden her food horizons and make sure that she is getting enough protein through other sources.
The hubbster is at work during dinner-time 5 days out of the week, so our menu plan will be predominately vegetarian. Without further ado:
Monday: Grilled Chicken with baked beans and steamed broccoli.
Tuesday: Steaks with cheesy twice-baked potatoes and green beans. Vege-burgers for Kaitlyn and me.
Wednesday: Cheese quesadillas with fruit smoothies.
Thursday: Easy peasy make your own Pizza night with fresh fruit.
Friday: Vegetable Lasagna with garlic crusty bread.
Saturday: Free Night, no plans.
Sunday: Outside cooking day - BBQ burgers and dogs (vege for Kait and I), grilled roasted potatoes, corn on the cob.
We'll have a Big Ass Salad with available with dinner every night as well.
