Weekly Meal Plan

Weekly Meal PlanOur family hasn’t been out to dinner for a meal in so long.  I’m pretty sure the last time we went to a restaurant for dinner it was last summer while on vacation.  I mention this because I felt a little bad this week when I was scheduled to go out to dinner with a group of local bloggers and my family was having leftover lentils served on a bed of spinach!  Before you feel too much pity for my people, please know that they also devoured a bag of sea salt and vinegar potato chips in my absence.  A few crumbs at the bottom of the bag were all they left me.  Yes, I used a spoon on those crumbs but I swear I did not lick the bag although I’m not above that.

Weekly Meal Plan

This meal plan is from Monday, April 30, 2012 to Sunday, May 6, 2012.

Monday:  Mexican lasagna

Tuesday:  fish, brown rice, green salad

Wednesday:  spicy lentils over spinach

Thursday:  (leftovers) spicy lentils over spinach

Friday:  homemade mac and cheese with tomato slices and green salad

Saturday:  street tacos with fresh tortillas, tri-tip steak, guacamole, fresh salsa, homemade tortilla chips (this was our Cinco de Mayo celebration)

Sunday:  (leftovers) street tacos with fresh tortillas, tri-tip steak, pinto beans (from freezer) and fresh salsa

My daughter ended up making lunch on Saturday and my son didn’t make dinner this week.  He claims he’s doing double-duty next week.  I hope I remember that he said that!  He was very busy this week.  We splurged and had beef on Saturday night with leftovers on Sunday.  There’s also a package of the leftover beef t in the freezer which I’ll trot out shortly and my carnivores will be so happy. treated a group of Portland area bloggers to dinner at Mother’s Bistro and it was very fun.  It’s always fun to meet-up in person and the restaurant was lovely.  It was a real treat!  My drink is pictured below.

    1. Heidi, it’s just one of my many whip-it-up meals! It’s really good and leftovers freeze well – and it’s meat free – plenty of pinto beans and veggies. It’s another recipe I will write down and share 🙂 I promise!
