Menu Plan Monday: Changes in the Menu
We are on a streak of eating all of our leftovers for lunch. That’s a really good thing for the food budget, but my planned left-over night has gone a little awry. So, this week we’ll have a meal planned for almost every day. If I need to, it is easy to take something off the menu, but it can be very hard to be put on the spot. After all, a meal plan is just a guide.
Ground Turkey was on sale for $1.00 per pound this week, so I bought a lot of it. I will be trying to convert some of my recipes that call for beef and pork to turkey in the coming weeks. I hope that it works out well! At that price, we’ll learn to like it, though.

They don’t appear on the menu, but our meals do include fruits and vegetables. I like to wing that. It seems that if I have a plan for the main dish, the rest falls into place. Free day is not necessarily a day off from cooking for me. I leave it blank so that I can cook the dish that I didn’t cook earlier in the week, or so we can have a little spontaneity in our lives!
What are you eating this week?
