MPM menu for 4/23 - 4/29


The weather seems stable enough that we've pretty much switched to lighter fare, heavy stews and the like just don't sit very well when it is warm, unless someone gets a craving.  Do you guys do that as well, try to eat seasonally?  I have noticed it also helps with the grocery bill is you can buy this way.

Here's what our menu is looking like, and although we can easily do a few meatless nights a week, if that doesn't work for your family, grill a hunk of something or other and add to any of our meals.

Loaded baked potatoes w/butter, sour cream, sauteed mushrooms, green onion & bacon bits for whoever wants

Triple berry spinach salad-  organic baby spinach, berries, veggies & pine nuts drizzld w/champagne vinaigrette

Rotisserie chicken (finally using the rotisserie I won ages ago); oven roasted veggies-  yellow squash, zucchini, baby red, green, yellow & orange peppers; NY salt potatoes; salad

Breakfast for dinner: scrambled eggs; sausage patties; mini muffins-  applesauce, blueberry & lemon poppyseed; fresh fruit

BLAST wraps - bacon, lettuce, avocado, spinach & tomato w/avocado mayo (tortillas or romaine leaves for the wraps); oven baked spicy hm curly fries

Veggie stir fry-  broccoli, carrot, snow peas, snap peas, mushrooms, water chestunuts, red, yellow, orange & green peppers over jasmine rice  (may go polynesian style & add pineapple w/pineapple juice & brown sugar added to the soy, ginger, garlic sauce)

Chicken gyros w/lots of veggies, etc & hm tzatziki sauce, oven baked chips

Got a deal on pork loin- no clue what to do with it yet- either marinate & grill a roast or make some of the chops; smashed red potatoes w/skins on; steamed snow peas w/sesame glaze

  1. We definitely eat lighter when the hot temps hit Las Vegas. Salads, fish, chicken, meatless dishes.
    Happy MPM!
    You're menu plan sounds so good.
    Have a wonderful week!
