Menu Plan Monday

Pie Chart #delicious #eataly

This is going to be a good week. It's definitely going to be a good week as far as food goes. It's a little early in the season for a few things, but I purchased a nice supply of fresh items last week. So, although I'm keeping things on the simple side, it will be filled with lots of fresh fruits and veggies.

They say Beets are a vegetable that can supply the same vitamins that meat can. I'm not a fan of beets. But we had some in New York that were good. And I know Nora needs to learn to like them. So, I'm adding them to our menu. I might even consider them our test food item for February since I've never made them before. Lucky for me, I'm paring them with two items that we love and that will be good for us if I decide I just can't stomach the beets. But let's be positive!

I'm very happy to be adding a salad in occasionally. It's important to me that Nora finds them fun and not boring. And it's important to me that we eat more salads.

To ease up on my schedule this week, I made a loaf of bread and pizza dough yesterday, freezing the dough. And I made a batch of black bean burgers. I had more items on my list, but the dishwasher quit working/cleaning, which made it less interesting to me to cook all at once.

I made a lasagna last week for our Sabbath afternoon lunch. The leftovers are still at my folks. If my mom decides they don't want them, it'll take a load off and save something for next week.


I LOVED it! I only made a

I LOVED it! I only made a small sheet pan of it,anticipating that I would be the only one in our house to eat it. And I was right, but ended up making another pan of it the same night so I could take it for lunch the next day.
I bought a HUGE head, bigger than MY head, for $2.50. Yay! and thank you :)
