Menu Plan | August 10

Ok, so I haven’t been posting menu’s lately.  It’s not just the posting part I’ve been ignoring, it’s the whole planning part.  I’d like to say that it’s because I didn’t know what was coming in my weekly farmers basket, but that’s not the case.  It’s sheer disorganization – from menu planning, to grocery shopping, to scrambling every night to figure out what to put on the table.

It’s so much easier with a plan (at least for me).  Accordingly, I’m back at it this week. 

Monday – Zucchini Hummus, Tabouleh & Veggies with Pita
Tuesday – Roast chicken, steamed veggies, turnip and tomatoes
Wednesday – Greek Salad with Chickpeas
Thursday – Easy Trout Panini’s with cut up veggies
Friday – Stir-fry with left over vegetables & tofu and brown basmati rice
Saturday – Leftovers

All my recipes this week are from this new magazine I found: Clean Eating.  We’ll find out if the magazine is worth getting again after a week or two of recipes from it.

Weekend Menu UpdateThere are only so many days in a row that I can eat cereal, so on the wekeend, I’ve been trying to come up with some new alternatives.  I think I now have our family pancake recipe to the point where I don’t consider them junk food.  I use 1/2 whole wheat flour, 1/2 chickpea flour and I sprinkle them with blueberries, walnuts and flax seed while they are cooking.  In the same way I can’t have cereal everyday, I’m not up for making pancakes every weekend.  Have any suggestions?

  1. Call me old-fashioned. I still like the occasional omelet (with veggies, sour cream and salsa) or, for the sweeter tooth, French toast with fruit and whipped cream or frozen yogurt.
    Oatmeal? Does anybody make that any more? Oatmeal with dried fruit, granola, nuts, or (for the sweeter tooth) whipped cream or frozen yogurt. Yum.
