menu plan monday: 7|11 to 13|11

Monday, November 7, 2011
Have you heard of Menu Plan Monday? If you've read this blog more than once, especially lately, you have. MPM is hosted weekly by Laura over at

It seems that all I manage to post these days is my weekly meal plan. (How many times have I said that over the last couple of months?) The time I have to sit at the computer for longer than a few minutes seems to be getting more and more infrequent. I usually start working on MPM mid-week and finish it up when the grocery flyers come out. Posting it here somehow makes it a lot easier than if I were to just write it down with pen and paper. Maybe because I don't print out the recipes?

Printing out the recipes wouldn't be a bad idea though. If I were to do a binder with the meal plan for the week and a printout of each recipe, as I make each meal I could tear out the recipes we didn't care for and keep the ones we liked. It would be a good way to get a compilation of tried and true family favourites. Hmmm... Maybe I need to find my laser printer in the garage? I prefer it to the ink jet that is in the house right now.

On to this week's suppers though.

Tuesday: slow-cooked Eye of Round roast, Roasted Red Pepper Rice (minus the feta), Roasted Beets with Balsamic Vinegar, Special Cauliflower, carrot sticks
Wednesday: Sweet and Sour Turkey Meatballs, rice, corn, garden salad
Thursday: Pizza Braid, Caesar salad, baby carrots
Friday: Lentil Sloppy Joes over Carrot Wheat Kaiser Buns, carrot sticks
Saturday: Lemon Pepper Pork Chops, baked potatoes, peas and corn, toast
Sunday: Oven-Fried Chicken, mashed potatoes, green peas, Cheese-Garlic biscuits

I have the sweet potato in the microwave right now for the gnocchi in tonight's soup and am on the hunt for a quick and easy crusty bread. Dishes to wash, laundry to put on, a grocery list to put together for tomorrow, and a million other little things to do. Happy Monday!
