I haven’t done it in a few weeks, but I think it’s time to jump back into menu planning. Actually, all of the planning-ahead type stuff I’ve been doing since school started has been really enjoyable. The family loved waking up to hot oatmeal, coming home to dinner and a non-stressed me… it was really nice. So this week I’ll put it all out there.
Monday: Pasta with “meat” sauce, possibly some homemade garlic breadsticks
Tuesday: Spinach and feta quiche, Israeli salad, edamame
Wednesday: Chicken roasted with apples, onions, and garlic cloves; vegetarian kishke (make extra for bentos), roast potatoes
Thursday: Lentils in wine sauce, basmati rice, sliced bell peppers
Friday: Challah, brisket, potatoes, broccoli
Saturday: Roast chicken sandwiches on homemade rosemary focaccia
Sunday: Probably something with my parents, who will have returned from a three-week trip to China and Europe. If not, we’ll have homemade pizza.
Wow. The decisions are made and now all I have to do is follow the plan! Awesome!
