Menu Plan Monday: Post-Relevant, Post-BFing

Posted Oct 30 2011 9:48pm

It’s once again time for Menu Plan Monday! This week I am excited to participate in the “Plan it, Don’t Panic” menu planning challenge spear-headed by Stephanie at Keeper of the Home.

Wow, Relevant was amazing! Such a great time of fellowship, fun, friendship, and even relaxation! Yes, although we were kept very busy, there was plenty of time to sit back and chat with new and old friends who share many of the same passions. Tomorrow I’ll tell you a little bit more about my Relevant experience, but for now, let’s just say it was amazing.

What is not so amazing is that most likely by Wednesday, my Baby Boy will be completely weaned. This saddens me a little, and I will admit it was not part of my plan . My plan would be to continue breast-feeding for at least a couple more months, but that is not to be. It’s not all sadness, though, because weaning him means that I can be back to my regular diet… which means… bring on the cheese! I missed cheese so much and will really have to restrain myself not to overdo it!

Breakfasts

  • Muffins
  • Muesli
  • Steel Cut Oatmeal
  • Pancakes
  • Granola

Lunches

  • Leftovers
  • Freezer Stash of Non-Allergenic Foods (for Certain Little Someone)
  • Egg Salad Sandwiches, Ham Sandwiches
  • Bean Soup

Dinners

Snacks

  • Nuts, Raisins, Cranberries
  • Popcorn
  • Allergen-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is not just a menu plan, as wonderfulas that in itself is. Oh, no. Some more features for the curious among you…

This Week’s New Recipe

I try to incorporate one new recipe a week into my menu. This isn’t really difficult for me since I rarely make the same thing twice.

  • I have to use the rest of the whiting in my freezer, so I’m trying out this Whiting with Garlic and Lemon recipe. But I don’t think I really like whiting. I’ll keep you posted!

In My Kitchen Today

On Mondays, I spend some extra time in the kitchen, cooking ahead and making baked goods to last for the week and beyond. A large portion of the day is often dedicated to allergen-free foods for my Certain Little Someone.

  • Granola
  • Broth
  • Pumpkin Pie Filling
  • Hamburger Buns w/ Artisan Dough
  • Snack of some kind
