Weekly Menu Retrospective #47

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: Upside-Down Apple Oven Pancake, rhubarb streusel muffins, peanut butter bagels, blueberry pancakes, chocolate zucchini muffins

Lunches: leftovers, pizza, tomato soup and toasted bagels


Monday: Black Bean Chili

Tuesday: Fish au Gratin, rice, broccoli and carrots

Wednesday: Swiss chard, bacon and mozzarella quiche

Thursday: Lasagna, peas, brownies (birthday dinner as requested by my younger son!)

Friday: Pork fried rice

Saturday: Lentil soup, cornbread

Sunday: Pork roast, carrots in orange sauce, twice baked potatoes, apple crisp
