Well first let me say that I am extremely excited to enter my blog today and see that my very tiny following is growing! YIPPEE! I still stand by my promise that as soon as I reach 25 followers I will host a giveaway so keep watch!
As most of you know, I LOVE to cook. Somehow though with the children, preparing things for homeschool, spending time with hubby, and being tired and pregnant, we still manage to somehow order take-out far more than I am confortable with. Okay, it's really less than once a week but that is WAY too often for me. I though that, to combat this craziness, I would start menu planning again. I have planned out our meals for the next four weeks (assuming baby #3 doesn't make her arrival before that) but will post them one week at a time. So...here it goes, my first "Menu Plan Monday"!
Monday: Mushroom & White Bean Alfredo
Tuesday: Tunori Sandwiches and Mushroom Barley Soup
Wednesday: Goat Cheese & Spinach Stuffed Chicken with Herb Roasted Potatoes and Carrots
Thursday: Chickpea & Spinach Curry
A few things to note about my menu this week:
- I haven't gone as far as to plan out breakfast and lunch as well. I may decide to add that in next week if I'm able to stick to my plan this week.
- You will notice that there are a lot of meatless recipes. We are not vegan, but we do eat vegan or vegetarian meals several times a week.
- There are very few links to recipes. Unfortunately, I mostly make it up out of my head! I will, however, try to write down some of the better recipes as I go so I can share.
As a side note, our schooling efforts are going really well! We started on the Workbox System this week and it's going very well! More on that later!
