Weekly Menu Retrospective #33

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: Morning Glory Muffins, Rhubarb Muffins

Lunches: leftovers, pizza


Monday: Pork and Apple Stew

Tuesday: Spicy Peanut & Tomato Soup

Wednesday: Smothered Meatballs, mashed potatoes, peas & carrots

Thursday: Lemony Chicken and Spinach Pasta, Lemon Pudding Cake (this was a bit more souffle-like than I was hoping, I'm on the hunt for one that is cakier, if you have a good recipe, please share!)

Friday: Bacon & Cheese Egg Puff

Saturday: Leftover Buffet

Sunday: Roast Chicken, mashed potatoes, carrots, gravy, Mud Hens (from Southern Plate)

  1. I might have a lemon pudding cake recipe that's more cake-like. Give me a day or so to look for it. :)

  2. Thanks, Annie! Let me know if you find it :)
