Menu Plan Monday (Vegetarian)


Menu Plan for the Week of January 25 – January 31

Sunday Dinner – Just me!  Pumpkin fries (trying to use up this guy) with organic ketchup, yogurt and oranges and peanut butter.

Monday Dinner – Fried rice (Bobby’s request) and a veggie stir-fry for me (with Teriyaki sauce).

Tuesday Dinner – Mabu Dofu (spicy tofu – it’s Chinese; I chop up some tofu and add a prepackaged sauce to it) with rice (Bobby) and couscous (me).

Wednesday Dinner – Couscous with chickpeas, scallions, sun-dried tomatoes, and cilantro.  Salad on the side.

Thursday Dinner – Egg scrambles with leftover veggies.

Friday/Saturday Dinner – one night out (Pho – noodle soup – Vietnamese); one night Curry (pineapple, tofu, water chestnuts, red pepper, onions, etc…) served over rice/couscous.  If it’s good I’ll post the recipe.

Desserts: strawberries (2 pounds for $3.99), yogurts & granola, oranges, peaches, vanilla soy ice cream, and going to Red Mango in Palo Alto.

Lunches: pumpkin fries, omelettes, nut butter sammies, hummus sammies, lunch meat sammies for Bobby, veggies, fruit, and leftovers. (almost the same list as last week, but I may get more creative since I’ll be home for lunchtime.)

More great menus can be found at Organizing Junkie!

Last week’s menu plan went very well.  I tried some new recipes, posted them (!), and didn’t waste any food.  I also discovered a new kind of peanut butter and got myself to eat rice and pasta.  I hope this week turns out just as well!  Have you menu-planned your week yet?

    Pumpkin fries sound delightful. I’m inspired… were they deep fried or baked?

    Pumpkin fries? Are they as good as sweet potato fries? I’m going to have to try them! Considering I suck down sweet potato fries by the pound, it’ll be nice to diversify a little. :)

    Hope your curry is delicious!
