Monday’s Menu Plan: September 7

Happy Labor Day!
I know many of you will be celebrating with family at BBQ’s and cookouts – enjoying this holiday that signifies the end of summer. My hubby is working, so while we won’t be eating the traditional hamburgers and hotdogs today, make sure you make enough of whatever you’re creating so that there are leftovers to share or turn into a second meal later in the week.

I’ve linked to a couple recipes for our dinners, but that doesn’t mean that I follow those recipes exactly. For example, I like doing the penne on Sunday with just green beans and I even throw some Feta cheese into my pesto to add another layer of flavor and creaminess. With the chicken rollatini, I like to put sundried tomatoes, feta and spinach inside (can you tell I like Greek food?!). As always, use this plan as an inspiration, not as a boundary.

I’m also realizing that as we’re still getting used to an everyday school schedule, cereal, yogurt, and/or oatmeal are becoming are weekly breakfast staples. However, don’t let that limit your morning creativity! (Plus we’re still stocked on free yogurt from last week!)

Monday’s Menu Plan: August 17, 2009

I can’t believe that summer is technically over (based on the fact that school has started here in Nashville), but we’re experiencing some of the hottest days we’ve had all year! However, that means there’s still great nights for grilling ahead (even if that means just using the George Foreman inside). Yesterday we made our first family trip to the Nashville Farmer’s Market and I got a great sampling of fresh vegetables I’ve never tried before, like different kinds of zucchini, squash and eggplants, so you’ll see those mixed into the recipes this week! Enjoy!

Monday’s Menu Plan: July 5

I hope you all had a great 4th of July weekend! If you don’t have a lot of leftovers, here are some ideas for what to eat this week. Don’t get stuck in a rut – let my family’s plan be a source of inspiration as opposed to something you need to follow word for word. A few reminders for those of you just starting to menu plan:
– Plan your meals according to what’s on sale at the grocery store this week & what you already have on hand at home

-Try alternating fruits, vegetables and proteins for good health and so your family doesn’t get bored: No one wants to eat chicken and carrots five days in a row! By rotating your foods (eating something different every other day), you aid your digestion and keep meal time interesting for your family.

Add one vegetarian meal into your meal plan. By keeping one night meat free in your meal plan, you help both your wallet and your health!
