Monday Meal Plan #7

Monday Meal Plan

Happy Monday! I hope you’re enjoying a relaxing, holiday weekend.

We’ve been having a lovely fall weekend. On Saturday, my husband took my daughter to her gymnastics class, then we hung out at home for a while, before I made a quick grocery run. That evening, my husband and I went out for a belated anniversary (11th) celebration dinner. We went to an Italian restaurant, and took a short walk around downtown Saratoga Springs. Yesterday, we met friends for a picnic in a Spa State Park. The moms went for a walk in the park after lunch, while the kids played on the playground, and the dads supervised them. The weather was lovely, and the fall colors in our area are approaching peak. It’s such a gorgeous time of year!!

Our family’s schedule this week is kind of unusual. We’re all off from work and school today, back at work and school tomorrow, and on Wednesday, I’ll be home with my daughter, who has another school holiday. We get back on-track on Thursday, and I’m working a third day again this week, this time on Friday. After work on Friday, my daughter has dance class until 6:00, then a Brownie bonfire with her Girl Scouts troop. We’ll grab a quick dinner out in between dance class and the bonfire, and my husband will fend for himself, which probably means a bowl of cereal. With that in mind, here’s what’s on my dinner meal plan this week:

  • Monday: Burgers on the grill and roasted asparagus.
  • Tuesday: Slow cooker coconut curry lentils (didn’t happen last week, as planned)
  • Wednesday:ย Red burritos with beef and beansย and roasted veggies
  • Thursday: Leftovers
  • Friday: Quick dinner out for the ladies, and my husband is on his own
  • Saturday: Ground turkey chili w/ avocado and cheese (and maybe some chips)
  • Sunday: Leftovers

What’s for dinner at your house this week?

  1. That tofu and broccoli recipe I got from your blog has continued to be a hit around here. I just made it last week, and it was gobbled up way too quickly. I’ll be interested in knowing how those lentils go. I want to have more vegetarian meals around here. I hope it happens this Tuesday for you : )

  2. Coconut curry lentils? I’m curious about this, even though I don’t have a slow cooker…Thank you for sharing at The Really Crafty Link Party this week!
