So, since I started on this menu planning journey, dinners have been pretty easy. Just look at the list and fix it. (Unless, of course, I don’t have the ingredients or the time or the energy. . . then we do the ol’ switcheroo or call it leftover night.)
What has been missing, sadly, is breakfasts and lunches. Since The Bull is off at work, that means that the kids and I are grabbing whatever we can. Picture me standing at the cupboard and/or fridge with hungry children clamoring around my knees, begging for food.
Not a pretty picture.
Yesterday I found this menu plan sheet from a fellow menu planner, and I’m going to try it for a few weeks. We’ll see if it will help with the lunch time rush.
Meanwhile. . . back on the ranch . . .
Monday: Soft tacos (repurposing last week’s leftover black-bean-cakes-made-with-pinto-beans.)
Tuesday: Collard greens (from this recipe. I’ve made it before with beet greens, so we’ll experiment with collards this time.
Wednesday: Something with leeks. HELP!!! What do I do with leeks? Any of you out there have tips or a favorite recipe to share?
Thursday: Hamburgers, potatoes, and random veggies. Perhaps I’ll have The Bull fire up the grill again. (Yes, there is still snow on the ground. Yes, we have started the grill this year already. Remember the moose steaks from two weeks ago? No, we are not crazy. 😀 )
Friday, Kids’ night: Tonight we are going to a special Passover Seder dinner!! Oh so exciting! I can’t wait!
Saturday: Breakfast for dinner: eggs, pancakes, fruit.
Sunday: Turkey dinner (with as many of the trimmings as I can do with out going nuts!!)
