Menu Plan Monday

Menu Plan Monday

Just so y'all know--there's a giveaway carnival going on this week over at Heavenly Homemakers! Woohoo! You can see my giveaway post for a $25 Amazon gift card here.

Here's the plan (I plan my weeks from Saturday through Friday):

Saturday
Breakfast: Banana muffins and canteloupe
Lunch: Sandwiches, veggies and strawberries
Dinner: We had a very simple dinner--toast and fruit! Keith was out of town and I was tired.

Sunday
Breakfast: Banana muffins and canteloupe again. Love the canteloupe this time of year!
Lunch: Sandwiches, veggies and fruit
Dinner: Taco birthday dinner for my sweet sister-in-law (no cooking for me, yay!)

Monday
Breakfast: Green smoothies and oatmeal
Lunch: Leftover tacos
Dinner: Spaghetti with whole wheat noodles and a big green salad--I'm making this tripled so that I can freeze a couple of batches for when baby comes. I'm also going to do this in the Crock-pot this time--oh, Crock-pot, how I love thee.

Tuesday
Breakfast: Pancakes and grapes
Lunch: Leftover spaghetti and veggies
Dinner: Crock-pot Chow Mein made with pork loin

Wednesday
Breakfast: Oatmeal and fruit
Lunch: Leftover Chow Mein
Dinner: Family night supper at church (gotta love these nights when I don't have to cook!)

Thursday
Breakfast: Green smoothies and toast
Lunch: Sandwiches, veggies and fruit
Dinner: Falafel--oh, so yummy! I'll be making extras of this for the babymoon, too, since it freezes so well. If you've never had this, it's definitely worth a try! One of my favorite foods EVAH! I'll be making this with homemade pitas and tahini sauce.

Friday
Breakfast: Eggs and fruit
Lunch: Leftover falafel
Dinner: Hamburgers on homemade whole wheat buns--for the buns, I use this recipe and just do the dough cycle on my bread machine. Then I roll it out to about 3/4" thick and cut it into circles with a cookie cutter or glass. Let them rise a bit and then bake at 350 for about 15 minutes.

Snacks: Applesauce, fruit, raisins, veggies, popcorn

Coming up this week on Heart(h) Management:
Monday--I'll be participating in the Springtime Giveaway Carnival hosted by Heavenly Homemakers. I'm giving away a $25 Amazon giftcard! Woohoo!
Tuesday--The gift of a beautiful mother
Wednesday--A Handy-Dandy Tool for the Home Manager
Thursday--A Peek Into My Heart
Friday--The Wonder of Water
Saturday--as always, some Sit and Sip Saturday Links!

I love falafel - your recipe looks like one I'll definitely have to try (and I'd suggest having your falafel with some hummus - love tahini sauce, but hummus is my favorite!). You should check out springpad's
weekly meal planner - it's a great way to organize all of your menus and recipes, I think you'd really like it!

Your menu looks great. Still waiting for the canteloupe to start looking good here. The other day it was pricey and didn't look so great. My kids love it though!
