Menu Plan September 13-19

This is week two of the school lunch rush. It’s getting better, but we may still be a bit of beginners luck. My trick for this week is to make lasagna and chili ahead of time, so we can have them for lunch. So far it’s working another goal for this week is to try and incorporate more legumes into our diet. Recipes for lasagna, chili and hummus to follow.

Here’s the menu for this week:

Monday
Lunch: Lasagna
Dinner: Lasagna (the kids had to have it again!)

Tuesday:
Lunch: Sweet Potato Chili
Dinner: pizza

Wednesday:
Lunch: Hummus with cut veggies
Dinner: Ratatouille and brown rice

Thursday:
Lunch: grilled cheese sandwiches
Dinner: Quinoa and Salmon

Friday
Lunch: Sweet Potato Chili
Dinner: Turkey Meatloaf and Steamed Veggies

Saturday
Lunch: Pasta with leftover Ratatouille
Dinner: Braised Lamb Shanks, roasted carrots and potato gnochi (Bonnie Stern’s 100 mile diet menu)

Sunday
Lunch: Leftovers
Dinner: Roast Chicken and veggies
