Menu Plan Monday

Let me start off by saying I have NO idea where last week went. I promised to put up the lentil sloppy joe recipe and the week got away from me. Sorry about that! I will get it up this week at some point. Hopefully tomorrow. I was fortunate enough to do some batch cooking and get some things in the freezer so I will have to do minimal cooking this week. We did have another CSA pick-up, so I have to stir fry a bunch of greens and get them in the freezer as well. Those will make good additions to a few things I have in there already. Anyway, I is this week's menu plan:

Monday - Leftover veggie curry over rice
Tuesday - Chicken quesadillas (I really should post this recipe too. It's a great freezer meal and cheap!)
Wednesday - Sweet Pepper Pasta Toss with Kale (I had this on my menu last week. I made it, but it was tossed in the freezer for a later date.)
Thursday - Black bean and chard burritos (an adaptation from this recipe)
Friday - Homemade pizza with homemade sauce
Saturday - Chicken and greens stir fry
Sunday - Beef roast in the crockpot with baked potato wedges

Breakfasts will be granola bars, pancakes, waffles, muffins, bagels, eggs, and cereal. Lunches will consist of leftovers, sandwiches, and smoothies.

I plan to make another batch of granola this week, along with some granola bars, bagels, tortillas, and coconut milk yogurt. To get more menu ideas, visit or Mindful Menus. Have a great week!


  1. What do you add to your granola?

  2. Let me know how the coconut milk yoghurt turns out.

  3. M - I adapted this recipe to my daughter's food intolerances: Basically, I cut out the coconut, used sunflower seed kernels for the nuts, and cut out the orange peel (but that was because I didn't have a fresh orange on hand). It came out really yummy! I am going to make another batch tomorrow and I will be adding in some millet puffs, as well as slivering some almonds to add in with the sunflower seeds.

    THM - I did it two other times, but it didn't seem to set right. I'm going to start from the beginning again for this batch and see if I get better results without using a yogurt maker. I used the cooler method for the last batch and it definitely came out better. I'll let you know for sure when it's done. I'll have the results by Thursday. :)
