Menu Plan Monday

Good thing I didn't do too much planning last week! It would have all gone to hell in a handbasket anyway due to our medical emergency. This week I am back on track with easy make ahead meals that require little prep work for me, and even less for Doug (who's home with the kids all day AND running a business!). This week is my short week, just three 12-hour shifts!

Monday: Beef Stroganoff. I will throw all of this into the crockpot before going to work to cook low and slow all day. No "cream of crap" soup for us, just organic stock, raw cream, and flour. Will also substitute fresh mushrooms. Just before dinner, Doug can mix in the sour cream and boil some egg noodles. Will serve with green beans from our summer garden.

Tuesday: Roasted Chicken. I will clean and season two whole roasters before going to work so that all Doug has to do is pop them in the oven about an hour before dinner. Will serve with wild rice cooked in organic stock.

Wednesday: Taco night! Will cook grass fed beef, season it, and store in the freezer during the weekend as well as prepare the soft wraps. All Doug has to do is heat up and serve with fixings.

Thursday: Chicken Caesar Wraps. Will use left over chicken from Tuesday and make some homemade spinach wraps. Serve with fresh fruit.

Friday: Veggie Pizza. Homemade dough topped with thinly sliced zucchini, pepperochini, and mozzarella cheese.

Saturday: From the grill. Doug will surely want to get his grill on by the weekend...I'm happy to let him do it! Will probably pre-cook some meats and veggies for next week's plan.

Sunday: Spinach Quiche and fresh fruit.
