Menu plans for Mondays may finally get me back to blogging.
I've been a little lacking in posts lately. It's not that nothing's been happening in my neck of the woods; on the contrary, I've been very busy. It's just that my busy-ness has led to a great deal of apathy in the blogging department.
But I hope that will be remedied this week. I've got so much to say, I just need the motivation to say it!
At least I do have my menu plan for the week. The list is just for our main meal of the day (which we're trying to shift to mid-day instead of the evening meal), so the breakfasts and the other meal of each day are still up for grabs. It'll probably be a lot of sandwiches and cereal this week. We're trying to use what we have in our pantry to avoid any more trips to the store
- Monday: Cider Vinegar Chicken, Peas, Devine Breadsticks (these breadsticks are truly divine!)
- Tuesday: Wet Burritos, Spanish Rice, Corn
- Wednesday: Baked Ziti, Salad, French Bread
- Thursday: Homemade Pizza
- Friday: Spaghetti Carbonara (this was on a previous menu plan, but I didn't make it)
- Saturday: Teriyaki Chicken, Fried Rice
We are trying to move toward a more Mediterranean/Asian diet (heavier on the Mediterranean part), but I still have some butter and margarine in the house, so I will be using it up in some recipes before we do a complete switchover to the new diet (hence the Devine Breadsticks.) But once the butter and margarine is gone, I don't plan to buy any more. I think that is one change that will go a long way in helping us eat more heart-healthy; olive oil and canola oil are what we're going to be using after that. We've got plenty of cookbooks to help us menu plan accordingly, but it's going to be an interesting journey for all of us—especially the kids. I'll be blogging more about our diet changes in the upcoming weeks.
Our menu plans are hopefully moving us to a better diet but we will see.
