Menu Plan Monday

So, we're back from a week of vacation and I am feeling rejuvenated! However, after a week of eating what someone else has prepared (the place we stayed had meals included), I am ready to get back to cooking. I sat down yesterday and put together my menu plan for the month. I am hoping to get some things made in big batches to put in the freezer since the weather is getting SO hot!!!! This weather is not conducive to turning on the oven. ;) This is what this week looks like:

Monday - Squash and chicken casserole (new recipe which will use much of the three enormous yellow squash from our CSA this week)
Tuesday - Leftovers
Wednesday - Black bean and chard burritos (again, an adaptation from this recipe)
Thursday - Cajun lentils and rice
Friday - Homemade calzones (I will make a double batch for freezing)
Saturday - Bison briyani (another new recipe...leftovers get thrown in the freezer)
Sunday - Chicken stir fry

Breakfasts will be waffles, dehydrated buckwheat groats, smoothies, and cereal.
Lunches will be leftovers, PB & J, yogurt and granola.

  1. There's no place like home, right? I feel the same way about our meals when we come home from traveling for any length of time.

  2. Ahorne - Definitely! I loved being on vacation, but I like my cooking better than someone else's. :)

    M - Up to the Adirondacks in upstate NY. It was wonderful. I just wish their kitchen cooked my kind of food. ;)
