Menu Plan Monday

My husband was able to get to the Farmer's Market yesterday, so we are stocked up on some grass fed meats again. What we have currently should last us through at least 3 weeks or so. Here's the menu for the week:

Monday - Homemade pizza with homemade sauce (I only use the sauce recipe...I have a different dough recipe that I like better than the one at this link)
Tuesday - Chicken quesadillas (a carry-over from last week)
Wednesday - Lentil sloppy joes...I am SUPER excited to try these out
Thursday - Black bean soup
Friday - Leftovers
Saturday - Hamburgers on the grill with homemade buns
Sunday - We get our first CSA delivery this week, so what's in that will determine what we have for dinner!

  1. I love Lentil Sloppy Joes and so does my family. I make mine in the slow cooker and the whole family prefers them to the meat version. It was my inspiration to start swapping lentils for ground beef and so far everyone loves it! I am making Lentil tacos this week!

  2. You are the one who planted that Lentil Sloppy Joe idea in my head! :) I am very excited to try them now that I found a recipe.

  3. I will have to start following you! I am trying to feed our family "cleaner" in a very strict budget. Your menu ideas are wonderful! I'm headed to check out the lentil sloppy joes now... although I have to admit I'm scared of trying lentils... Any suggestions on what I should use them in first?? LOL

  4. Keli - I just used them in a soup first. I have a post dedicated just to the lentil soup I made. I included the original recipe and my interpretations. :) Lentils are really very yummy!
