This is my first time to participate in Menu Plan Monday hosted here! I've really been working on menu planning and have found it to be so helpful. It seems to work best for me if I just plan one week at a time. I'm still figuring out the details of what will work for us but it has been a great success so far! I love cooking so I'm trying to also include new recipes each week.
Here's our menu for this week:
Monday: Carrot Lentil Casserole (crockpot & meatless), Salad, Apple Cinnamon Muffins
Tuesday: Chicken Burritos (w/black beans, cilantro rice, cheese, sourcream, & fresh salsa), Melon (from the farmer's market)
Wednesday: Casserole from the freezer (we will be in Chicago for Calvin's post-op appt. during the day), Salad
Thursday: All-American Patty Melts, Baked Sweet Potato & White Potato Fries, Apple Salad
Friday: Homemade Pizza (whole wheat crust and using whatever we have on hand for toppings - probably meatless), Veggies & Dip
Saturday: Spaghetti, Peas, Garlic Bread
Sunday: *Dessert - probably an apple pie or two! (Andrew's firm has a pitch-in picnic so this will be my contribution)
*Update - no dessert on Sunday. I just found out that his firm is providing dessert so I will bring a side dish - not sure what, probably a jello or hot veggie dish.
