Hello Menu Plan Monday readers! As I mentioned in Saturday’s post, I am trying to keep this week’s menu workable so that we can eat at home and I don’t wear myself out. Thursday is looking like a rough day, and we’ll be eating out and maybe using some birthday BOGO coupons. How about those glass pumpkins in the photo? How to choose one when they are all so pretty?
Monday – Shrimp and twice baked potatoes, broccoli. Made the potatoes on Sunday.
Tuesday – Hot dogs, veggies, potato salad
Wednesday – Eggs, turkey sausage, and millet muffins from a favorite cookbook “Super Natural Every Day”. Heidi’s recipe for the great muffins is linked above.
Thursday – Out for an inexpensive quick meal
Friday – Taco night!
I thought I would occasionally share any ideas I have for packing a school (or work!) lunch. My revelation this week was that I can make my own Jello/ pudding cups. My daughter is enjoying this treat, though she did complain that lunch is so short she “didn’t have time to savor her pudding!”

Just a few more days until we downshift into ‘school’s-out-for-summer’ mode!
Monday – The Amazing Broccoli Cheddar soup (less fat) from the cookbook Super Natural Every Day: Well-Loved Recipes from My Natural Foods Kitchen. This is my favorite soup recipe. Don’t skip the whole grain mustard in the soup – essential!
Tuesday – Daughter’s teacher is hosting a party for the end of the year. We will have a light dinner when we get home as there will be snacks and fruit at the party. We have a frozen pizza and similar offerings in the freezer.
Wednesday – Meal out to celebrate end of the school year!
Thursday – Turkey burgers topped with salsa and avocado
Friday – Frittata with roast potatoes and kale. Yogurt fruit parfaits. I loosely follow the recipe from Cook Yourself Thin but use whatever you like in terms of veg and meat

Spring finally feels like it has arrived in the Midwest! I am looking forward to warmer days and a week without appointments after school. This week’s menu has a lot of vegetables…must be the spring weather!
Monday – Make your own big salad night with leftover Tandoori Grilled Chicken from Sunday as a topping choice. I am trying a new home-made salad dressing – Honey Chipotle Vinaigrette
Tuesday – Egg Fried Rice – giving the extra vegetables from the salad on Monday a home
Wednesday – The Amazing Broccoli Cheddar soup (less fat) from the cookbook Super Natural Every Day: Well-Loved Recipes from My Natural Foods Kitchen. This is my favorite soup recipe. Don’t skip the whole grain mustard in the soup – essential! I love this cookbook!
Thursday – Frittata with roast potatoes and kale. Yogurt fruit parfaits. I loosely follow the recipe from Cook Yourself Thin but use whatever you like in terms of veg and meat.
Friday – planning to go out. Husband has a birthday this month and we may take advantage of some of the birthday BOGOs that arrive.
