Weekly Menu Retrospective #19

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: banana chocolate chip muffins, cornbread with jam, Christmas granola, French toast, banana bread

Lunches: pasta salad with sweet peppers, leftovers, pizza, peanut butter toast


Monday: Spicy Peanut Soup, cornbread

Tuesday: Smothered meatballs, rice, broccoli, carrots

Wednesday: Ham and cheese egg puff

Thursday: Baked pasta, peas

Friday: Leftover buffet

Saturday: Black bean chili

Sunday: Barbecued pork chops with spicy rub, roasted root vegetables

I'll be posting the recipes for most of these dishes in the next few weeks, so stay tuned!
