Menu Plan Monday 5/18/09

We received an email late last week from the farmer who raised our beef order, that our order would not be ready until next week. This is going to affect our plan for this week, unfortunately, as we were looking forward to that beef. Its been about 6 months since we've had clean beef (we won't eat CAFO rasied beef). Hopefully, it will indeed be ready on Saturday, as we are planning to add it to our menu this week.
This week, we will be eating from the pantry. I made a list of all meals we could make with what we had on hand (except for Saturday, for obvious reasons). We should only need to stop by the store for milk and maybe fresh produce.
Here's the menu for the week:
Eggs and grits
Sliced Turkey Sandwich
Grilled Cheese Sandwich
Banana Nut Bread
Home baked Bagels
Hummus and flat bread
Monday: Chicken Noodle Soup with bread sticks and salad (by request, we're having this again this week) - The chicken noodle soup is cooking in the crock pot right now.
Prep for tomorrow: soak black beans, make tea, bake banana nut bread
Tuesday: Cuban Black Beans and brown rice with steamed broccoli
prep for tomorrow: peel and season shrimp, bake bagels
Wednesday: Yakisoba shrimp and veggies (we didn't get to make this last week because we were eating leftovers)
prep for tomorrow: bake flatbread (for hummus snack)
Thursday: Mini Muffaletta sandwiches and a green salad
prep for tomorrow: make a pitcher of tea, bake cheesecake
Friday: Pan friend Tilapia, salad and corn on the cob
prep for tomorrow: bake hamburger buns
Saturday: yummy grass-fed beef burgers, dressed with lettuce, tomato, caramelized onions and cheese, with either steamed or roasted broccoli, cheese cake
Sunday: Leftover buffet.
