Maybe it’s all the excitement from being published for the first time. *smile*
Whatever caused it, I just stared at the menu blankly for awhile, walked away from it, and then pulled out some old menus for inspiration. And of course visiting past Menu Plan Mondays always provides lots of meal ideas. This helped a little, and I’m happy to say I’ve got a menu that isn’t five days of pasta.
What do you do when you’re not “in the mood” to figure out a week’s (or more) worth of meals? And bagging the menu doesn’t count, ’cause we all know the benefits of making a menu!
Monday- Potato & Corn Chowder, easy artisan bread, salad
Tuesday- French Beef Stew- with just vegetables (no potatoes) so we can have it over mashed potatoes, salad
Wednesday- Tuna, Bean, & Kale saute (making this up…), Quick Breadsticks, steamed broccoli
Thursday- Slow-cooker Chicken Dinner, risotto w/peas, salad
Friday- Cheesy pasta bake (I’ll probably make a white sauce and add cheese, etc.), black-eyed pea chopped salad
Saturday- Burgers on homemade buns, oven fries, carrots
Sunday- leftovers or pasta
