Menu Plan Monday – Sept 2


I designed this meal plan around ingredients that we already have at home.  Hoping for a week with less grocery shopping and expense.

Monday:  Labor Day in US.  Leftovers from my mom’s house.

TuesdayJamie Oliver’s Curry.  A solution for the abundant kale in the garden.  We make the curry vegetarian with chickpeas, cauliflower and kale.

Wednesday: Grilled burgers with my precious Hatch Green Chiles from New Mexico

Thursday: Grilled cheese and pea soup

Friday:  Make your own taco salad night… made fresher with choices of black beans, oven roasted corn kernels, avocado, crisp Romaine in addition to the usual suspects of cheese and chips.

If you are in need of meal planning inspiration, head on over to!

    Never thought to have pea soup with grilled cheese…will have to try that. Found you thru Menu Plan Monday. Love the blog and am still surfing around it. Thanks!

      Thanks for visiting and commenting. I shall return the favor this evening.
      Pea soup… I guess the issue is I don’t like tomato soup! I like to offer pea soup because it is nourishing and my daughter enjoys it as well. Often we buy Campbells or something similar – the ingredients are pretty much peas, water and seasoning. This is the kind of meal that prevents us from going out to eat when I am sick of cooking full meals.

      The great thing about curry is you can use up what you have! Spinach works, tomato, potato, it’s all good! I use Patak’s Dopiaza curry in a jar – 1/2 a jar for three people.

    Yummy! My mouth is watering at the thought of all this! I’m eating ‘cheaply’ this week. Lots of vegetarian meals and I always cook in bulk so we can freeze some. Tonight’s meal was Wholewheat Spaghetti with roasted veggies in a tomato and cheese sauce.
