Tiffanie: this week's menu

Still trying to stay ahead of all that lettuce! I didn't make it through all of last week's meal plan, so some of it is in this week's.

Plans for this week:

  • Creole Hoppin' Jean with corn chips and hot sauce, roasted cauliflower and red onions, green salad with home grown tomatoes and cucumbers. Ok, this was last night, and it was delicious. :-)
  • pizza with mushrooms and olives and pesto
  • pasta with edamame and broccoli and walnuts
  • sweet potato hash with chard
  • chili with zucchini, cornbread
  • french lentil salad
  • energy balls
We're going camping next weekend, but due to lack of space in the car I probably won't pack much food beyond snacks. We'll be exploring the coastline and towns, so it'll be a relaxing no-cook weekend for mama. I'm thinking I'll pack lots of fruit leather, applesauce, granola bars, trail mix, pirate booty... anything that is compact and shelf-stable.

Bernadette: This week's meal plan

I've been cooking a lot but it has been awhile since I planned meals for the week.

For this week:

  • Black Pepper Flank Steak - this was actually pre-marinaded by the butcher. We ate it tonight since I came back from the grocery store late. It was delicious. 
  • Chicken Tinola - a Filipino recipe, a sort of chicken and papaya soup with garlic, ginger, onion, and spinach (although I'm using napa cabbage because that's what I have)
  • Asian Chicken Salad
  • Tuna Nicoise Salad
  • Creamy Lemon Pepper Orzo and Grilled Chicken
I realized after I finished shopping that there's a lot of chicken this week so next week I'll work on more variety and try to get a vegetarian dish in the meal plan, too.

Tiffanie: this week's menu

Not so hot this week, but also not so cool. Just summer!

My meal plans include:

  • homemade pizza, with tofu ricotta, pesto, zucchini, mushrooms, olives... whatever the kids want. And salad, since I have so much lettuce...
  • baking powder biscuits, tempeh bacon or other fake bacon, roasted potatoes and onions with herbs, smoothies
  • baked tofu, peanut noodles, cabbage salad
  • pasta with broccoli, edamame, and walnuts.
  • bibimbap (rice bowl with mushrooms, zucchini, carrots, tofu, hot sauce, etc.)
