Weekly Menu Retrospective #18

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! 

Once again,  I don't have a lot of links to share this week - we managed to have a few tried-and-true favourites that I haven't posted here yet, along with a couple of new recipes I'm still tweaking. I will have a lot of recipes to share in the new year! 

Breakfasts: cornbread with jam, Christmas Granola (recipe coming this week!), blueberry pancakes, banana chocolate chip muffins

Lunches: pizza, leftovers, peanut butter toast


Monday: Lentil soup and cornbread

Tuesday: Creamy Tuna Pasta with Peas and Carrots

Wednesday: Ham and Cheese Egg Puff

Thursday: Cheesy Mac & Beef Skillet

Friday: Lentil burgers and oven fries 

Saturday: Black bean & sausage chili

Sunday: Indian spiced honey garlic chicken, spicy potatoes and peas, whole wheat vegetable roti, coconut cream pie

  1. Your menu looks yummy! We like lentils, too. And I love how frugal and filling they are. Have a great week!
