Menu Plan Monday

December 6, 2010

Here’s what’s cooking this week chez moi. I should make this a regular feature, because when I write out what I plan to make for the week all at once, I save time during the rest of the week hunting down recipes, coming up with ideas, and substituting ingredients that I would have had for a recipe had I not already eaten it for a snack, etc. It just makes my life easier to write a menu plan each week.


To Do: Start chicken stock, soak oats


B: Oatmeal with blueberries and coconut oil

L: Romaine, tomato, tuna salad with split pea soup (leftover from Sunday)

D: Rice, ham and broccoli casserole

To Do: Brine pork roast, bake cookies


B: Eggs and citrus salad

L: Leftover casserole

D: Pork loin roast with sweet potatoes, kale and beets

To Do: Bake spelt biscuits


B: Plain yogurt with banana, nuts and cinnamon

L: Leftovers from dinner

D: Meatballs (grass-fed beef) with tomato sauce over squash, spelt biscuits with butter


B: Yogurt banana blueberry coconut oil smoothie

L: Meatballs on salad with avocado

D: (Fish Friday) – Fish Thermadore (wild sole rolled in cheese sauce) with greens and rice

To Do: Christmas baking


Spelt biscuits, apples dipped in peanut butter, pears, oatmeal spelt raisin cookies

There’s more pork than usual on the menu this week. That’s because last weekend, we picked up a nitrate free smoked ham and a loin roast from our favourite farmer at the organic farmer’s market. She raises certified organic, pasture raised heritage breed pork. Deeeeeeelicious! Also, you might see that I am baking with spelt this week. There are a few recipe posts in the works, so stay tuned!

    Love love love the way you add a “to-do” section on your meal plan. I need to start doing that!

      It works really well for me, because otherwise I might forget to look ahead at what I’m making the following days, and then it’s too late for certain things to be done properly! Now, if only I could be organized enough to make a menu plan EVERY week!! :)
