Menu plan for the week of 10/6

I'm only going to do dinners, because breakfast is usually cereal or oat meal, and lunch is usually leftovers from the night before's dinner.

Monday- Avocado/Cilantro chicken
Tuesday- Split pea soup (from the freezer)
Wednesday- Minestrone soup
(Andy leaves Thurs. through Mon)
Thursday- leftover whatever
Friday- I might have some friends over for dinner, so something yummy that I'll plan later
Saturday- I'm going to Bend to visit Carla, so we'll probably go out for dinner
Sunday- leftovers

New idea for my food blog

I'm going to start menu planning each week. And this is the place where I'm going to do it, even though I have no readers on this particular blog. It's mostly just for me instead of doing it on paper and losing the paper.

So here's for this week:
B - Green smoothies
L - Green lemonade + pb&j on sprouted grain bread
D - Chicken and mashed potatoes (with sautéed green beans or zucchini if I can get them from my mom's garden and baby tomatoes)

B - Omelets with heirloom tomatoes and avocado
L - Tuna sandwhiches
D - Shells and white cheddar with steamed broccoli (before youth group)

B - Cereal with blueberries or blackberries, bananas
L - Corn dogs
D - Spaghetti with steamed veggies (broccoli, green beans, etc.) and small spinach salad
Dessert (with Ryan F.) - Apple (or blackberry if I can find some) pie and vanilla ice cream

B - Green Smoothie
L - PB & J on sprouted grain bread, peaches
D - Soup of some kind

B - Whole grain pancakes with blueberries and maple syrup
L - Bean burritos
D - Chicken Curry

I've been slacking on my food log! I don't think anyone reads them anyway.

Yesterday I had:
1 banana
1 apricot
1 quart green juice - romaine, spinach, cabbage (makes it kind of bitter, or I had too much lemon?), lemon juice, apple
1 Chocolate coconut Lara bar
Tuna melts (very bad, but we were very hungry!)

I started out well, but went downhill from there.

May 21

Yesterday was my niece's first birthday, so I ate a little worse than usual. I had:

A banana
2 scrambled eggs
A BLT sandwhich
A small-ish piece of blueberry muffin-cake with vanilla ice cream
Bowl of cereal (We were in a hurry to get to youth group)
A little bit of vanilla ice cream at youth group
Stove top popped popcorn with himalayan crystal salt

Oh my goodness, I just realized that I had almost no vegetables yesterday, aside from on my BLT. I need more vegetables!!
