Weekly Menu Retrospective #23

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: homemade granola with yogurt or milk, orange pineapple muffins, blueberry pancakes

Lunches: pizza, leftovers, omelets


Monday: Falafel Burgers, Colourful Cabbage Salad, Oven Fries

Tuesday: Baked Pasta, peas

Wednesday: Leftover Buffet

Thursday: Cheesy Corn Chowder, leftover cabbage salad, butterscotch pudding

Friday: Sausage & Onion Calzone, sliced raw veggies 

Saturday: Pizza

Sunday: Fish Au Gratin, honey & orange roasted root vegetables, sour cream chocolate chip cake

Snacks & Sides: apples, clementines, bananas, fresh pineapple (on sale for $1 each this week!!), homemade yogurt, popcorn
