Menu Plan Monday – March 5

This past week was a blur – I was a day ahead in my mind all week for some reason. Our menu plan went somewhat according to plan at the beginning of the week, though we had some great meals. The  Lentil Sloppy Joe’s  were wonderful though I cut back the amount of maple syrup by 1 tablespoon because the last time we made it they were just a tad too sweet. This time they were perfect! The  Spanish Chickpea Soup might be one of my favorite soups. It is so flavorful and I love another use for my pressure cooker. I also had a big breadmaking week – I made 2 loaves (Rosemary Bread  and Cinnamon Raisin Sunflower Bread) and the Whole Wheat Hamburger Buns for the sloppy joes. I definitely am on a bread kick as of late, though I make sure I balance it out with a good protein source as well as lots of fruits and veggies.

The next two weeks are very busy with family birthdays – we have four to celebrate! Not sure of exact plans just yet but I’m sure we’ll figure it out soon enough. Here is my plan for this week:

Monday: Slow Cooker Pork Chops with Quinoa and Roasted Cauliflower and Carrots (repeat from a few weeks ago – it was that good!)

Tuesday: Veggie Spaghetti

Wednesday: Birthday Dinner for my Dad

Thursday: Spicy Chicken Stew with a Strawberry Spinach Salad

Friday: Flaky Fish Sticks from The Mom’s Guide to Meal Makeovers, Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Green Beans (bumped from last week)

Saturday: Jambalaya with Roasted Okra

Sunday: Walnut and Rosemary Oven-Fried Chicken with Mashed Potatoes and Roasted Squash (bumped from last week)
