Menu Plan Monday - 6/22

This week I am starting to plan our menus again, so I decided to join in Menu Plan Monday over at orgjunkie.com to help me be consistent. Make sure to go over and check out all the great meal ideas!

I am going to plan out all meals this week. I am doing Breakfasts and Lunches for the sake of my 18 month old Jimmy so I am not scrambling trying to figure something out at last minute and so we don't get stuck in a rut. I will try to link to the recipes I will be using, but I usually don't make them exactly as they appear. I try to make everything from scratch when possible and use the most natural ingredients I can.

Monday
Breakfast: Oatmeal with Blueberries
Lunch: Organic or All Natural Peanut Butter & Jelly (fruit only spread) & Carrots
Dinner: Zucchini Parmesan

Tuesday
Breakfast: Blueberry Muffins - These are delicious!!! We absolutely LOVE them! I change the recipe a little - substitute half or all of the flour with whole wheat flour, add some wheat germ in, use applesauce instead of oil. I also use brown sugar instead of white for the topping.
Lunch: Leftover Zucchini Parmesan
Dinner: Italian Breaded Tilapia

Wednesday
Breakfast: Oatmeal with Strawberries
Lunch: Grilled Cheese & Greenbeans
Dinner: Chicken Taco Soup in the Slow Cooker

Thursday
Breakfast: Blueberry Muffins
Lunch: Leftover Chicken Taco Soup
Dinner: Potato Soup

Friday
Breakfast: Oatmeal with fruit
Lunch: Spinach & Cheddar Eggs
Dinner: Homemade Pizza

Saturday
Breakfast: Blueberry Muffins
Lunch: Organic or All Natural Peanut Butter & Jelly (fruit only spread) & Carrots
Dinner: Grill out night

Sunday
Breakfast: Eggs with Spinach & Cheddar
Lunch: Usually eat at the in-laws
Dinner: Leftovers

Ahhh, that feels good! Now lets hope I actually stick to it! Once it is "written down" it is so much easier. Why did I stop doing this again?? ;-)

That zucchini parmesan sounds delicious, I'll definitely be trying that one out soon! You should check out springpad's weekly meal planner, it's a great way to organize all of your menus and recipes (like this one, yum! http://bit.ly/3D6top) and I think you'd really like it.

That looks really good! I love it and feel so much more in control when I've planned our weekly menu. So, I'm wondering why I haven't done it lately.
