Weekly Menu Retrospective #26

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, Aloha muffins, peanut butter toast, eggs/bacon/hash brown potatoes/toast

Lunches: sandwiches (tuna, turkey salad, peanut butter), pizza, leftovers


Monday: Potato, Bacon & Cheddar Soup, Colourful Cabbage Salad

Tuesday: Moroccan Chickpea Stew, cornbread

Wednesday: Spinach & Beef Enchiladas, leftover cabbage salad

Thursday: Sausage and Onions in Tomato Sauce with Creamy Polenta

Friday: Cheese omelets, leftover cornbread, sliced raw veggies

Saturday: Turkey salad sandwiches, apple slices

Sunday: Pork & Apple Stew, Rhubarb Cinnamon Crunch Cake
