Weekly Menu Retrospective #34

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: rhubarb streusel muffins, bagels, homemade granola, apple pancakes

Lunches: sandwiches (peanut butter, grilled cheese), pizza, Toad-in-the-Hole


Monday: Pasta e Fagioli

Tuesday: Chicken & Salsa Casserole

Wednesday: Leftover Buffet

Thursday: Italian Meatball Subs, creamy cucumber salad

Friday: Sausage & Potato Hash

Saturday: Apple & Bacon Baked Beans

Sunday: Sausage, Onion, & Peppers with Red Sauce and Creamy Polenta, green beans, Blueberry Clafouti
