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):

feta, parmesan, american cheese, cheddar (I'm low on everything)
pork roast
good olives

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.
