Menu Plan Monday – Week of 1/25/2010

I am going to post last week’s menu too, because we made so many modifications due to a schedule change (the advantage of planning your meals 2-3 weeks ahead with things you already have in the pantry is it’s really easy to switch things around).

Meanwhile, the eating from the pantry thing is still going strong. I was hoping to have the big freezer cleaned out by the end of the month, but it looks like it will carry us well into February, or at least a little way in. I need to do a real inventory, but we have some frozen soup, broth, and side dishes, as well as a whole turkey, shrimp, mussels, and some whiting that I bought on sale (for less than $2/lb. wild-caught).

Monday 1/18 – Mussels Gratin
Tuesday 1/19 – Calzones
Wednesday 1/20 – Chicken & Spaghetti Casserole (from The Big Book of Casseroles)
Thursday 1/21 – Crockpot Honey Lentils (this was the family’s favorite lentil meal; it was really good!)
Friday 1/22 – Hot dogs, baked beans, lacto-fermented sauerkraut
Saturday 1/22 – Spinach & Feta Crustless Quiche
Sunday 1/23 – Lamb sausage, rice, sauteed spinach

Monday – Ham, Pepper, Snap Pea, and Pineapple Hawaiian Casserole (from The Big Book of Casseroles), rice

Tuesday – Tuna Pasta

Wednesday – Tempeh Stirfry (bok choy, broccoli, spinach, turnip, cabbage, sprouted mung beans)

Thursday – (older son’s birthday, on request) Hamburgers, Sweet potato fries

Friday – Moroccan Chicken Stew

Saturday – (family party for son’s birthday) Grass-fed beef tenderloin, french fries

Sunday – Pork roast

I also don’t usually post breakfast ideas; we usually have some on-sale cereal that the rest of the family eats, and I usually make a batch of some breakfast related item and have that throughout the week. This past week we had:

  • baked rice pudding
  • Trader Joe’s gluten-free english muffin with egg and soy cheese
  • almond flour cinnamon banana bread & kefir
  • french toast & bacon
  • leftover quiche

Here are the breakfast ideas I am thinking of for this week. I won’t make them all, but we have all of the ingredients for any of the following:

  • SCD Pancakes (I think I will try the one labelled “Pancakes III”)
  • Butterscotch Rice
  • Buckwheat Banana Bread
  • Vegan Buckwheat Banana Pancakes
  • Pumpkin Pudding (some kind of cross between this squash pudding recipe and this pumpkin pudding recipe
  • I have a little Buckwheat Banana Bread Granola left, so I can have that with kefir if I don’t have time to make another breakfast one morning
  • The baby really liked the French toast I made for him (spelt bread with goat’s milk and egg yolks). I want to make some spelt or gluten-free French toast sticks for him and freeze them; I’ll post the recipe soon if anyone wants it.
