Monday Menu Plan 7/4/11

Happy 4th of July American friends!

Random fact for you today – I am actually American born and raised - I’ve been living in Canada (thanks to my handsome Canadian husband) for close to 5 years now. Before that, I grew up in California and also lived in Minnesota for several years.

Also, the radio station I’m listening to right now is playing Violent Femmes’ American Music, which is awesome. I went to see the Violent Femmes once and it was one of the most fun shows I’ve ever been to, hands down. :D

Hope it’s a wonderful holiday for those of you in the US!

This week’s menu plan is a bit rushed and haphazard…I’m actually attempting to get the house clean so it’s just a quick break for blogging.

Also, we’ve kind of been awful about going grain free lately and I’m struggling with it – which I think is actually making me eat more grains/sugar than I normally would.

So this week, I’m trying to go totally sugar free (stocking up on the fruit!) and including a few grains in the menu plan, which will hopefully satisfy those cravings without causing me to go overboard.

And here it goes…

Breakfasts - green smoothies, that will probably be mostly red as we’ve collected a massive amount of strawberries over the past few days (went picking and received them in our weekly organic delivery).

Lunchessandwiches, fruits, cottage cheese, artichokes, eggplant…and I’m just gonna make them as I feel like it over the next days, so no particular order.

Dinners -

  • Monday: Spicy Lime marinated beef strips (from Against the Grain cookbook) – we put them in marinade last night and I am very much anticipating eating them!! Served with steamed broccoli and cheese sauce (homemade – it’s SO good and much better than CheeseWhiz!)
  • Tuesday: Garlicky Roasted Shrimp & Swiss Chard (made this a few weeks ago – so good!)
  • Wednesday: Eggplant Mini Pizzas
  • Thursday: Garlic rubbed pork chops (from Against the Grain) & grilled zucchini
  • Friday: Blackened fish (Against the Grain – great recipes in there!) & artichoke
  • Saturday: Roasted chicken & veggies
  • Sunday: BBQ – I’m thinking salmon (we’re having friends over) and lots of veggies on the side

That’s it!

Now it’s back to cleaning for me…

Do you have a weekly/monthly meal plan? Post your link (or plan) in the comments. :)
