Menu plan Monday

Standard

This week I took a leaf out of my friend Elizabeth’s book. Most of our dinner plans are leftovers. For the past few weeks I’ve been noticing Elizabeth’s menu plans include more and more leftovers. At first I thought this was a little boring (sorry Elizabeth!) but I think I will try it out this week!

Here’s our menu plan for the week:
Breakfasts will be either cereal or oatmeal. Lunches will be mostly leftovers, sandwiches or Smart Ones (don’t judge, they were on sale last week!)
Snacks will be yogurt, hard boiled eggs, jello, celery and peanut butter or hummus and fruit.

Tuesday:
Hamburgers, fruit and/or vegetables

Wednesday: Sandwiches (I’m going to be too late to eat at youth group, so I will eat a sandwich between the gym and a doctor’s appointment!)

Thursday:
Chicken and rice, veggies and fruit.

Friday:
Sandwiches

Saturday: Grilled pork chops and either grilled or roasted veggies.

Sunday: Breakfast for dinner.

Boring? Perhaps…but I think it will help our leftovers and food waste this week. I will let you know how this goes! Man, cooking and eating for two is hard!
