This Weeks Menu Plan


I decided at the beginning of this month to try and make a one month menu. So far I love it. I usually hate to sit down on Saturday or Sunday and make out my menu. This way I only have to do it once a month. Here is what I have planned. I am not sure how closely I will stick to it. I realized today that I have a ton of fresh and frozen veggies to get used. We have new things starting to ripen in the garden as well. I am a little disappointed that critters seem to have eaten all of my strawberries before I had a chance to pick them.

I bought some organic lamb and goat at the farmers market today. I wonder if I can change some things around to try it.

Breakfast-Waffles and fruit
Lunch-Dinner at my parent's
Dinner- Crock pot chicken and rice

Breakfast-Green smoothies with homemade yogurt, eggs, and toast
Lunch-Hot dogs (not nitrate free unfortunately. Leftovers from a party last week-Yuck, but they need to be used)
Dinner-Stir Fry with brown rice and chicken

Breakfast-Oatmeal, apples, raisins
Lunch-Bean burritos with homemade refried beans and homemade tortillas
Dinner-BBQ beef sandwiches, green veggie

Breakfast-Green smoothies, almonds for protein (My kids love almonds)
Lunch-Homemade chicken nuggets, watermelon slushies (If I remember to by a watermelon)
Dinner-Penne with chicken and asparagus

Breakfast-Oatmeal and fruit
Lunch-Quesadillas with homemade tortillas, carrots and apples
Dinner-Baked potatoes with broccoli and cheese

Breakfast-Green smoothies, eggs, and toast (Does it seem like breakfasts this week are a bit monotonous?)
Lunch-Grilled cheese and homemade garden chowder
Dinner-Rice and beans with cornbread and salad

Breakfast-Pumpkin pancakes with fruit and maple syrup

New things to try and bake:
Amish white bread tweaked a bit to make it healthier
Bird seed bars
Hummus, not new, I make this all the time. Yummy!

Most of our lunches are geared toward the children. I try to make enough food for dinner so that my husband is able to take leftovers. He usually loves this idea. I sure am lucky to have a husband who likes leftovers.

I will try to get some of the recipes for the things I am planning to make posted soon.

  1. I'm enjoying your blog. I wanted to say, we grew some strawberries a few years ago and the rabbits were eating them all. I got some "garlic" from a local nursery that you can sprinkle around it. It worked. The rabbits and other critters don't like it.
