Menu Plan Monday June 16th


I'm feeling much less organized this week, so, though its Tuesday, I'm still working on the menu for this week. Here's what we have so far.

Monday: DH wanted gyros from the Greek restaurant in our neighborhood for father's day, but they are closed on Sunday, so we had them for supper on Monday with homemade hummus and homemade tabouli.

Tuesday: Sloppy Joes, sweet potato fries

Wednesday: Lasagna, homemade bread, squash

Thursday: leftover buffet

Friday: BBQ chicken pizza, caramelized onion pizza and plain cheese pizza with a veggie tray

Saturday: grilled veggie panini, black beans and brown rice

Sunday: pesto over pasta spirals with roasted chicken, squash and broccoli


Breakfast:
Blueberry pancakes
baked oatmeal
eggs and bacon
waffles
yogurt with fruit

Snacks:
cut up fruit (strawberries, peaches)
blueberries or blackberries
veggie tray
yogurt
cheese stick
pretzels and peanut butter
biscuits and honey butter
banana nut bread
shortbread cookie

Lunch:
chicken salad sandwich
pb and honey sandwich
broccoli cheese soup
we'll probably have leftovers at least a few times for lunches

This week, I think our local "meal" will be spread out over several meals. I'm just not feeling organized enough right now to pull together a whole meal, but later on in the week, I may manage to make it happen. We will be doing a lot of local eating regardless. I have put everything we bought local or grew ourselves in bold. Not bad :o)

I found you through Organizing Junkie. I really want to get back to growing my own garden, but just haven't had the time or energy to plant container gardens. Good job on eating locally!

Thanks for stopping by and commenting. We've really enjoyed gardening and I hope you can get your container garden going.

Warmly,
Lori

Thanks for posting your plan! I mean to comment every week (and apologize if I've already done so but forgot!) It helps me and one of these days I'm going to get back to planning more than 3 hours in advance! LOL!
