What’s on the menu this week::

As part of my return to a more organized way of life, I am keeping to a strict menu and shopping list.  It also helps me keep a lid on the grocery budget.  Many of the dishes can be made ahead and stored for meals during the week – if I were feeling inclined to marathon cooking.  But at 29 weeks pregnant, I am not.  The menu includes luncheons and dinners as well as a good selection of meatless meals so that we have plenty of Friday options.  It also leaves a little wiggle room to add to another meal if we should have extra friends at table.

Let me know in the comments below if you want recipes for anything you see, and I will post it here.

  • Green onion, feta turkey patties, salad
  • Beef Roast in red wine, buttered noodles, veg
  • Butternut squash risotto, salad
  • Kielbasa and cabbage
  • Pierogi and ham
  • Roasted chicken, red potates, veg
  • Meatloaf, mash and veg
  • Shepherds pie, veg
  • Hake, rice and salad
  • Eggplant parmesan, salad, bread
  • Elbows and sauce
  • Gandules con arroz
  • Fajitas
  • Tomato soup, grilled cheese
  • Black beans and rice
  • Baked macaroni and cheese, salad

Desserts and sweet treats will include chocolate cream pie, wacky cake, and some type of cookie.  We also have a Safari themed birthday coming up in the next week with its own special menu!

Now, if I can just get myself to bake a couple of loaves of bread this week…
