Menu Plan Monday Oct 25

It's been many months since I have planned a dinner menu... Truth be told, I just stirfry most nights or make salad and sandwiches. Although it's been nice to be "creative" I think it's about time to get back to having a plan. This evening I spent some time looking and drooling over new recipes, especially found in Kulinarya (a list of Filipino foodies). In particular, Katrina's French Tartine posts were inspiring. Simple ingredients make yummy sandwiches. The beauty of Paris takes me away from this humid Gulf Coast weather.
When I really thought about food & cooking in relation to the season of my life, it comes down to this: easy and simple is good enough!

Basic menu:
Breakfast- cereal, waffles or oatmeal
Lunch- soup and sandwiches
Dinner- salad and pasta or rice

How's that for simple! I've already made 4 cups of brown rice. Half will go in the freezer for later in the week. Zatarran's was BOGO last week so I made Red Beans and Rice tonight. I added onions, garlic, and chicken stock instead of water for more flavor. We are out of BBQ sauce, which would have been nice for chicken wings. But instead I made hot wings and use half a bottle of Pete's. This was great with the beans and rice. I just need something for the children to eat!

Stumped like I am for dinner menus or have easy ones to share? Post them with other hundreds of bloggers on OrgJunkie's Monday Menu Plan.

  1. I love the "easy and simple is good enough"! I babysit my 4 yr old grandson, and big dinners are not always an option anymore. So I agree - the simpler, the better!
