Sorry for disappearing. Let’s just say too much money was spent and there was an eating out frenzy that’s made my budget look like the dog chewed it.
So here I go with the basics – menu planning. Over and over again it proves itself to be invaluable!
Fall is the perfect time to pull out the slow cooker if you haven’t used it in awhile. Take a look at a few of my favorites, and see if there are any you want to add to your menu plan this week.
I also recommend spinach salads for the week. Buying a large container of pre-washed baby spinach is a great investment. Not only does it keep longer than baby lettuce, when it’s at the end you can saute it, add to pasta sauces and even sneak some on sandwiches to add extra fiber and vitamins.
Monday: Minestrone and spinach salad (recipe near the bottom of linked post)
Tuesday: Refried Bean Tacos in blue corn shells with chorizo Spanish couscous over a romaine salad
Wednesday: Cauliflower curry potato curry with dahl over basmati brown rice and naan
Thursday: Grilled Pizza and salad
Friday: Pepper steak with steamed brown rice and wonton soup
Sunday: Clean out the fridge veggie soup made in the slow cooker and fresh bread recipe from sparkpeople
