This week's menu

So we REALLY fell off the wagon last week - lots of crappy meals (though garden burgers aren't terrible) and kid ate way too much mac & cheese. I had a client visit, hubby had a deadline at work, and baby had pinkeye. Here's to getting back on the healthy menu bandwagon again:

Sunday: Panko chicken fingers and sauteed yellow squash
Monday: (hubby is home to watch it) Slow-cooked pork roast with onions, served with (purchased) chili verde, tomatoes, black beans, and avocado
Tuesday: Pork fried rice with peas and egg (saute the pork from the night before with a little hoisin and soy sauce before adding, make the rice the night before and refrigerate)
Wednesday: Orzo with grilled chicken, tomatoes, feta, and olives
Thursday: grilled chicken sandwiches with cheddar, bacon and roasted peppers; steamed broccoli
Friday: pasta in (purchased) vodka sauce with italian sausage; steamed carrots

If you're following my frozen meat and pantry, this required little groceries for the week (not counting stuff for kid's lunch):

broccoli
bacon
feta, parmesan, american cheese, cheddar (I'm low on everything)
eggs
avocado
pork roast
good olives
tomatoes

Happy cooking everyone! Hopefully soon I'll be posting not only menus but nutritional information.

I'm so glad I saw your blog. I am like you, trying to plan for the week ahead so no food goes to waste and very importantly for me, few trips to the store (since I home school I have the kids and they HATE the store!). Your ideas will completely help! Fresh ideas! Keep it up, it's awesome.
