My week was beastly busy.  I’m still not recovered and its Sunday night! Let’s just say that I didn’t stick well to plan last week and leave it at that. =0 


Menu Plan Monday



Monday:  Quick Crescent Taco Bake, Black Beans & Corn Salad, Green Salad

Tuesday:  Coq Au Vin-Guine from Brian Boitano for the Food Network Chef Cooking Challenge, steamed Carrots, Garlic Bread (whole wheat), Salad

Wednesday: Italian Roast Chicken, mashed potatoes, green beans

Thursday:  Marinated (indoor) Grilled Steak, roasted cauliflower, pierogis

Friday: Fall Fun Night at School (Mini Subs, Fruit, Milk, pre-ordered)

Saturday: Honey-Jalapeno Chicken and Sesame Soba Noodles, edamame

For breakfasts we always have oatmeal, cold cereal, scrambled eggs, toast, freezer muffins, yogurt, cottage cheese and fruits to choose from.  I also keep us stocked with lunch meats, cheeses, etc for bentos.    My lunches this week will be leftovers and a pot of soup.  Probably this recipe  but with sausages; I have ended up with an extra pack of them. Even when not specifically listed, I usually have a mixed greens salad and fruit available for dinner.
