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 digress...here 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 Orgjunkie.com or Mindful Menus. Have a great week!

  3. M - I adapted this recipe to my daughter's food intolerances: http://www.answerfitness.com/49/low-fat-homemade-vanilla-orange-granola-healthy-recipes-from-answer-fitness%C2%AE/. 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. :)
