Wow, is it Monday already?
I've actually been a little hesitant to post my weekly meal plans lately, because, well, they're a little predictable! I guess for me that's a good thing, because it keeps my life simple (just the way I like it!), but could be a bit boring for you. :)
Normally our weekly menu goes something like this: Saturday - a burger and a vegetable (either salad, steamed veggies, or homemade fries), Sunday is soup day, Monday is stir-fry day, Wednesdays I normally do some kind of baked casserole of sorts, and Fridays are always pizza day (either homemade, or occasionally we pick one up, depending on what kind of a Friday it's been!). So that only leaves Tuesday and Thursday for me to figure out. And I limit myself to one new recipe a week. That way I only have to tax my brain once a week, the rest of the time I can cook on auto-pilot (which is good, when you have a 3-year old and an 18-month old tearing the place apart and talking your ear off while you're trying to make supper!). I make things interesting by making different salad dressings, different stir-fry sauces, or different types of rice. Otherwise, it's all the same. :)
So now you know my secret. Boring is easy. That's how I like it.
On that note, here is my predictable menu for the week:
Saturday: Veggie Chick 'n burgers & salad
Sunday: Alphabet tomato soup & biscuits
Monday: Veggie stir-fry on brown rice with peanut sauce
Tuesday: Red lentil dahl on rice
Wednesday: Shepherd's Pie
Thursday: Broccoli shells on rice
