When I plan our weekly menus in advance, not only do I feel more organized, we save money on eating out, waste less food, and eat more healthfully. Menu Plan Monday (MPM) is a blogging event hosted every week by Organizing Junkie. Although I do try to plan our meals every week, I have been a bit lax over the past month. This is my first time to participate in MPM, and I hope that it will hold me more accountable in the future.
Here is the list of this week’s dinner plans:
Monday: Lemon-Scented Quinoa with Asparagus, roasted cauliflower, and spinach salad with our everyday healthy vinaigrette
Tuesday: Homemade Turkey Breakfast Sausage, broccoli and kale sauteed with garlic, and raw cut veggies
Wednesday: Curried Quinoa Vegetable Hash, more spinach salad with vinaigrette, and raw cut veggies
Thursday: Grilled Turkey Burgers with Dijon-Dill Sauce and miscellaneous steamed or sauteed veggies (i.e., clean out the fridge)
Friday: Root Vegetable Cobbler with Millet Dumplings, salad, and veggies (I’ll begin the strict part of my cleanse on Friday, so this is just for my husband)
Saturday: Leftovers (for J only)
Sunday: Crockpot Chicken and Quinoa, salad, and veggies (just for J)
I’ll be sure to post any of the new recipes on my blog if they turn out well.
