Menu, Week of 12/11

Yesterday was my dad’s birthday, so I went over to his house and cooked dinner. He bought the lamb chops, and I brought all of the sides, including nearly the last of the tomatoes from my garden. I am trying to make as much food from the freezer and pantry this week as possible, again–Christmas time plus brake repair on the van equals not much more money for groceries!

Sunday: Lamb chops baked over brown rice and quinoa with fresh tomato slices, steamed broccoli and yellow squash

Monday: Quick sausage and tomato casserole, brown rice, broccoli

Tuesday: leftovers

Wednesday: Black bean chili, cornbread

Thursday: Chicken tikka masala, brown rice/quinoa, tomato cucumber salad

Friday: My daughter is performing in her school’s musical, so we will need something really fast. I am thinking leftovers.

I will need to get a few groceries, but not too much. One thing I want to make sure to do this week is have more fruit smoothies for breakfast–we are skimping on the fruit and veggies, and this is a great way to get those extra nutrients in at the start of the day. We make our smoothies with orange juice, bananas, frozen fruit, vanilla and a bit of kale from the garden. For kids’ lunches, I will need to pick up some lunch meat and bread, and possibly some applesauce cups, but we should have plenty of other snacks for them to take.

Grocery list:
plain soy yogurt
frozen spinach
orange juice
vanilla soy milk
applesauce cups
