Meal Plan week of January 11, 2010

Mindful MenusThanks for the great response about meal planning.  I'll continue writing and linking to Mindful Menus.  If you have a blog and meal plan, please join us! Someone asked me how well I follow through with the plan.  Last week, I made Monday and Tuesdays meals as planned, cooked up faux Reuben sandwich and tomato soup instead of dinner with Dad on Wednesday, and made homemade macaroni and cheese on Thursday instead of lentil barley soup.  None of the changes required a trip to the grocery!

On to this week:

Monday - Corn chowder and salad with sprouts

Tuesday - Tandoori chicken, palak paneer (homemade paneer), and rice

Wednesday - leftovers or dinner with Dad

Thursday - barley lentil soup, homemade sausage

Friday - spinach lasagna

I'm making an additional lasagna to deliver to a friends in a tragic situation.  The father is terminally ill and mother is five weeks from delivering their third child.  Their oldest son is in my daughter's preschool class.  If you live locally and want to offer support or can donate money to their need, please visit the Support Amber and John facebook page.
