My friends over at Keeper of the Home are launching a 6-week Meal Plan challenge. I’ve been working really hard to get myself organized and meal plan, so I’m all about jumping on board and keeping myself accountable. I’m SOO about doing this, that I actually started this week. The challenge doesn’t start until the 26th, but… well… I’m nothing if not enthusiastic about starting things I’ll struggle to finish.
Without further ado, gang, here is the first of my Meal Plan Mondays.
(As a side note, I meal plan Saturday-Friday rather than Monday-Sunday. It just seems to work better for me)
- Breakfast: Sourdough Buttermilk French Toast with Seven Sons Farm Breakfast Sausage, Real milk
- Lunch: Tuna Salad on whole-grain Wasa Crackers with cheese and fresh veggies
- Dinner: Meatloaf with baked sweet potatoes and buttered peas
- Breakfast: Pasture-raised scrambled eggs & homemade sourdough toast
- Lunch: Church Potluck – I took a crustless sausage quiche and Snickerdoodle Cake from the Is Your Flour Wet? e-book
- Dinner: Leftovers (I ended up with some plain, organic yogurt, topped with fresh raspberries and sliced almonds)
- Breakfast: Nitrite/Nitrate free uncured bacon, fried eggs and sourdough toast, Real milk
- Lunch: Butternut Squash soup, yogurt and an apple
- Dinner: Ground beef and quinoa hash
- Breakfast: Scrambled eggs, fruit & yogurt
- Lunch: Leftover hash
- Dinner: Baked Chicken, crispy potatoes and steamed green beans
- Breakfast: Soaked Irish Oatmeal & Yogurt
- Lunch: Butternut Squash Soup & veggies
- Dinner: Pan-seared steak, acorn squash and steamed broccoli
- Breakfast: Scrambled eggs & berry smoothies (made with, you guessed it, Real milk)
- Lunch: Tuna salad on whole grain wasa & veggies
- Dinner: Seven Sons Farm Bratwurst, salad and steamed green beans
- Breakfast: Eggs, bacon & toast, Real milk
- Lunch: Leftovers (probably soup & brats)
- Dinner: Baked chicken, soaked brown rice, zucchini sauteed in garlic
I’m still slowly working through Oliver Twist and Broke. Both the book on Egypt and the book on Kepler will probably have to wait for another time. I made it about half of the way through The Mind of Egypt and decided that until I know more about historical events in Egypt, I’ll be completely lost trying to understand how Egyptians thought.
Look for my review on Oliver Twist next week after book club!
