Menu Plan Monday - April 20

I really did not menu plan at all last week, and it definitely messed up our budget. This week's meals will come from foods already in our pantry, except some dairy and fresh produce. I am hoping to do a bit of stockpiling this week.

I put my menu plan on Google Calendar with daily cooking notes and links to recipes. I have that set up to e-mail me an agenda every day. I also keep it current each day if I change meals. My menu planning calendar is available here if you are interested in seeing it.


Breakfast: oatmeal, apple slices
Lunch: black bean burritos, carrot sticks
Dinner: spaghetti with meat sauce, salad


Breakfast: green yogurt smoothies, muffins
Lunch: navy bean soup (leftover)
Dinner: potato sausage chowder


Breakfast: cooked millet, apple slices
Lunch: grilled cheese sandwiches, homemade tomato soup
Dinner: chicken stir fry with brown rice & lots of veggies


Breakfast: green kefir smoothies, sourdough toast
Lunch: black bean chili (from freezer)
Dinner: beef enchiladas (recipe is for chicken, but I'm using beef), corn


Breakfast: baked oatmeal, apple slices
Lunch: leftovers or sandwiches
Dinner: grilled salmon, green beans, scalloped potatoes & carrots


I'm trying a large brunch and see if I can get away with two meals, as I do a lot of cooking & baking for the week on Saturdays.

Brunch: blender batter pancakes, homemade turkey sausage or eggs, fruit
Dinner: chili, blender batter cornbread, salad


We usually eat a late lunch/early dinner after church and graze if we're hungry later. :-)

Breakfast: toast, hard-boiled eggs, fruit
Lunch/Dinner: leftovers (I hope!)
