Menu week of June 15

Oops! Last weekend I was out of town so this past week was major cobble-it together food. Brown rice pasta with tuna and tomato sauce, tofu simmered in ready to go thai curry sauce, etc. But a new week is here and we did up our menu yesterday and here it is: let the eating begin!!

Monday L: Fried Rice (brown rice with leftover ham from Sunday diner bfast, frozen peas, egg)
D: mini muffin tin meatloaves (from Weight Watcher Magazine. It's not exactly this recipe but it's close. It's a great way to make meatloaf.). I'll steam some asian greens to go with them, and probably some millet or bulgur. I am trying to break out of the brown rice rut. Last week I made millet in the rice cooker and it was a success and a nice change of pace.
Task: panfry some tofu for tuesday dinner

Tuesday: L: mini meatloaf with greens and a grain
D: pan fried tofu with greens and grain
Task: soak some beans for soup

Wed: L: meatloaf
D: pasta with tomato sauce and tuna
get bean soup ready in crockpot for the next morning. The link is for the basic idea of what i'll make. I'll probably stir some cooked grain/pasta as well as shredded kale into it before serving. If i had ham i'd put that in too, but we used it in the fried rice.

AM task: plop crockpot insert in and turn it on!
L: pasta or meatloaf, depending what's left!
D: bean soup baby!

Fri: L: bean soup
D: either date night or cheesy oven fries (TJs frozen wedge cut potatoes in the toaster oven with grated cheese melted on them. yum.

That's it! have a great week!
