Menu Plan, Week of 6/18


I got up at 5:29 this morning to take the girl to cheerleading practice. This is much earlier than I am used to, but I am finding that I like the extra time. I can get so many things done before the time I am usually even out of bed! However, The Muny season opens tonight, so I don’t think I will be getting up so early tomorrow. We’ll see how long I can keep up the early morning hours–hopefully these two weeks of early morning practices will be enough to shift my schedule at least a little bit earlier.

Planning considerations for this week:

  • Muny on Monday, nothing too heavy before we sit outside in the heat.
  • Racquetball at 6:30 on Tuesday, with a required stop at GameStop to pick up the Lego Batman game that the boy reserved last week. We will need something that the girl can cook before I get home and we can eat fast or take with us.
  • I am trying to avoid the store before payday on Thursday. I could buy a few things, but I would rather use what we have first.

Monday: Corn pasta with butternut squash pasta sauceand chicken tenderloins

Tuesday: Italian sausages, baby carrots

Wednesday: Lentils and rice with caramelized onion tahini sauce, honey hot sauce chicken tenders
