When I do a menu plan, I almost always end up improvising at some point in the week. Things just never go quite as planned! So, I have decided to tweak the way that I menu plan a little. I made a list of five meals (leaving one night for leftovers and one for simple food), and I grocery shopped accordingly. Now I have a list of meals that I can make with what I have on hand this week.
1. Hamburgers/veggie burgers on whole wheat buns, oven fries, zucchini
2. Quiche, bread, and fruit
3. Chicken wreath and salad
4. Crock pot BBQ chicken, macaroni and cheese, frozen or fresh veggie
5. Garden Minestrone and Whole Wheat Beer Bread
Other things to make this week (for breakfast/lunch/snacks):
1. High Protein Whole Wheat Bread (also from the More with Less cookbook--it is amazing!)
2. Granola Bars
3. Tuna salad
If you don't have a copy of the More with Less cookbook, I highly recommend it and its philosophy on cooking and eating.
And now, on a more somber note, I have a request. I don't know what the rules are about praying for pets, but if you could keep my Kitty Friend in your thoughts, I would appreciate it greatly.
