Menu Plan Monday

I've been slacking on the menu planning for the past little while. But, I need to get back into it I think, because all too often I have just been grabbing a granola bar when I'm hungry and not making real food.

Breakfast: Bagel/cream cheese; Blueberry pancakes; granola

Lunch/Dinner: Italian chicken sausage barley soup; Potatoes au Gratin; Baked breaded chicken; Braised veggies; Sweet potato fries; Baked beans with hot dogs; Orange chicken and rice.

Not a whole lot of ideas, but hopefully will be something to flesh out my go to snacks of granola bars and fruit cups, supplemented heavily by ginger-lemon tea for my sore throat and cough, because, I am sick again. Stupid flu.

Dogs and cat are having elk scraps, turkey, and goat liver this week.

  1. I'm with you on this one. When I fail to plan we tend to eat out way too often. As we head into the holidays I plan to make it a priority to plan my weekly menus.

  2. ooooh, I like the menu - are you taking reservations?! Tee Hee

    Yum yum,

    Your pal Snoopy :)

  3. I haven't menu planned in ages either, I need to get back to it!

  4. I'm trying to get better at menu planning, but mostly that means buying frozen lunches in bulk. Go team.

    As a side note, Skye has been eating raw for almost 2 weeks now, and going great! I'll be writing up a blog post soon, but I barely have time to sit down at the moment. Thanks for all your help!

  5. Now I am hungry!
    looks like you have a great selection!
    Hope you feel better soon!

  6. Feel better soon.
    It's soup weather for sure.

    We have started getting into the freezer for berries and tomatoes. A little bit of summer on a winter day, good stuff!

  7. Mmm sweet potato fries!

    Thanks for your comment...I think that the orange chicken should probably be precooked a bit just because otherwise the breading won't stick. If you just want a plain chicken chunk with orange sauce you could totally skip the flour, oil and cooking!

  8. Hope you are feeling better soon.

    We've been using E-mealz for the past three months and love it. We get a menu each week along with the recipes and shopping list. I'm really getting spoiled because I no longer have to plan out my meals.
