Weekly Menu ~ January 7 – 13


menu planning

Since I don’t do my grocery shopping until Monday or Tuesday, I start my weekly menu plans on Tuesday.  I usually have a general idea about what I want to cook for the week when I go to the store (see this post for details), but I want to be able to have some wiggle room if I find a good deal on something — especially in the meat department.  I always have an eye out for a bargain!

Tuesday, January 7
Breakfast:  fruit smoothie
Lunch: turkey pepperoni and cheese quesadillas, refried beans, apple slices
Supper: out to eat with friends (yay!)

Wednesday, January 8
Breakfast: scrambled egg sandwiches, cantaloupe
Lunch: peanut butter sandwiches, bananas
Supper: baked cod, steamed broccoli, garlic mashed cauliflower (works great in place of potatoes — or even half and half), butterhorns

Thursday, January 9
Breakfast:  bran flakes, oranges
Lunch: alfredo pasta, peas and carrots, grapes
Supper: vegetable and beef stew with fresh bread
