Weekly Meal Plan 3/30-4/5

Shakin’ the tree… Shakin’ the food rut. Shakin’ it up. Doesn’t take me long at all to slip into a pattern with this meal planning business. I get bored. They get bored. Everybody gets crabby. Okay, so there may be more to the crabbiness than the dinner menu rut. The twins have discovered Harry Potter and Percy Jackson and have lost all their regard for lights out dictates… So we’ve begun double checking, ensuring books are down (a nice problem to have, I have to admit). Compliance has increased, crabbiness is waning. If we could get a nice day or two, we just might be getting somewhere. In the meantime, Momma needs some new dinner magic. This week I’m adding a couple of recipes from the Meatless Monday website. This is a great resource for anyone trying to up the plant content of their plate, which doctors seem to be agreeing is the thing to do. What do you do when you get in a recipe rut? Me, I’m gonna shake it up a little and see where that gets me. We could all use a little tree shaking now and again.

Monday: Lentil, Mushroom, and Sweet Potato Soup, Homemade Bread, green salad

Tuesday: Peppers Stuffed with Healthy Yum, roasted cauliflower, cut veggies

Wednesday: Mushroom Po’Boys (inspired by these Morel Mushroom beauties from Meatless Monday’s site – personally I don’t have a line on morel mushrooms, if you do, go for it and don’t tell anyone), sautéed green beans, green salad

Thursday: Potato pancakes, grilled vegetables, wedge salads with miso dressing

Friday: Homemade Pizza, cut veggies

Saturday: Company Good Pea Soup, Homemade Bread, green salad

Sunday: Easter Dinner at Grammy’s

Lunchbox Treats: Awesome Oatie Bars

Adult Lunches: Avocado Radish Salad from Meatless Monday’s site

  

That’s what we’re up to. What’s new with you? What trees are you shaking? Anything fall yet? Eat well, be well friends!

  2. This meal plan looks great! So great, I think my whole family would enjoy all of those meals too. And the avocado & radish salad for lunch – yum! And no, staying up late reading is definitely not much of a negative habit…better than iPads or online gaming!
