Weekly Menu Retrospective #22

 Welcome to my weekly roundup of the past week's eats. I prefer to report what we ate in the last week, rather than what we're planning to eat in the coming week. Why? The reason is pretty simple: although I usually have a general idea of what we're going to eat in the next week or so, life often unfolds a little differently than planned, and I adjust my menu plan on a near-daily basis to accommodate leftovers and other not-possible-to-plan-ahead circumstances. I find this is the easiest way to ensure that I minimize our family's food waste. I'm also willing to admit that I'm a rather spontaneous cook, given to preparing foods that strike me as the most appealing thing to eat right here and now!

Breakfasts: banana chocolate chip muffins, granola, carrot raisin bran muffins, waffles

Lunches: pizza, leftovers, peanut butter toast


Monday: Lentil soup and Garlic and Cheddar Biscuits

Tuesday: African-Style Vegetable Stew, whole wheat bread

Wednesday: Italian Meatball Subs

Thursday: Spinach & Bacon Egg Puff

Friday: Hot dogs and Parmesan & Herb Pasta 

Saturday: leftover buffet

Sunday: Beef & Barley Stew, Chocolate Mousse

Snacks & Sides: apples, bananas, clementines, fresh pineapple, banana bread, yogurt
