Menu Plan: 05/21–05/27

I can hardly believe that we’re near the end of another month and almost halfway through the year!  Where has the time gone?  But, one of my favorite things about this time of year is all of the FRESH fruits and veggies that are showing up in all of the stores and at market stands all over.  It’s so refreshing to taste the freshness that they bring to a meal.  So, if you’ve read my post about my shopping trip on Saturday, you’ll know that my menu this week will revolve around a lot of our fresh ingredients. 

 

Breakfast:

  • Fruit smoothies
  • Fresh Fruit with homemade yogurt – sweetened with honey
  • Oatmeal
  • Homemade biscuits with eggs & cheese

Lunch: 

  • Sandwiches on homemade bread
  • Hot homemade chicken broth with noodles
  • Leftovers
  • Bagel pizzas
  • Chicken Nuggets/pizza rolls with fries/tater tots

Dinner:

(in no particular order)

  • Crock Pot ™ Roasted chicken with potatoes, garlic, carrots, & onions with a side of corn, & peas with mushrooms
  • Crock Pot ™ Swissed Steak with a side of potatoes & steamed broccoli
  • Chicken fajitas (using leftover chicken) on homemade whole wheat tortillas using homemade fajita seasoning mix
  • Crock Pot ™ Poor Man’s Soup 
  • Crock Pot ™ Beef Stew with lots of veggies & homemade rolls
  • Leftovers

The only day I’m not too sure about at this point is Thursday.  We’re finishing up our homeschool co-op classes that day & will be having a special night.  I believe everyone will be bringing a covered dish or two to share, but I’ll have to double check that tomorrow.   Regardless of how Thursday goes, I have plenty of food on hand to improvise, if necessary. 

I’m also going to try my hand at making homemade roasted red pepper hummus this week.  I’ve been putting this off for some time, but I’ve finally decided to give it a shot.  I have a red pepper that I need to use up, so I’ll roast that up to go with the chick peas that I already have precooked & in the freezer just waiting to be used.
