Fellow writer, California Girl, and friend Dee, from Life with Dee, has inspired me to do Menu Monday Posts. It’s possible that with the Monday Menus I’ll make some of the recipes I keep collecting. Remember, I said “possible” not a sure thing.
Back in another lifetime, when my husband was alive and the kids were at home I made weekly plans to help with the grocery shopping. Even after the kids left home, we often planned our meals according to the sales.
One hope is that the plans will result in healthier meals for me, and not so many healthy additions to the compost pile because I let a food rot. Another is, by planning I can include leftover meals. Which means less cooking. Yay.
Okay, now you know what and why. With that here is the plan for this week.
Monday – September 5
I’ll be home all day cleaning house and doing yard work so today is a slow cooker meal day.
Pork roast, potatoes, carrots, celery in slow cooker
Fried potatoes and okra (save the slow cooker potatoes for another day.)
Tuesday – September 6
Oh my gosh. Today is an on-the-go day. Writing class in the morning, lunch in town with a friend, then either Toastmasters or a football game in the evening. Supper will be salad in a jar that I can take with me.
Wednesday – September 7
Leftover roast from Monday with the potatoes.
Steamed broccoli and cauliflower
Thursday – September 8
Zucchini noodles with no-tomato marinara sauce, sausage, mozzarella cheese
Friday – September 9
Will be spending the day watching two of my grandchildren show their livestock. That means eating at the show, or in town.
Saturday – September 10
Spending the day celebrating birthdays with grands. Eating with family and sharing birthday cake.
Sunday – September 11
Roast sandwich (and I still have a serving of roast in the freezer for later.)
Carrots, celery, and cauliflower
That’s my menu plan for the week. What’s yours?
Do you make a menu plan or wing-it?
What’s your favorite go-to food when you don’t have time (or inclination) to cook a meal?
