Menu Plan Monday



This is my first time participating in Org Junkie's Menu Plan Monday, but I've been meaning to for awhile! I'm hoping this will help cut down on the number of groceries I buy that end up going to waste because I haven't adequately predicted the amount of food the boyfriend and I consume in a week. It also doesn't help that I'm a vegetarian and he's decidedly NOT. :) Anyway, here goes my first attempt!

Monday: Grilled cheese and cans of soup (Amy's Minestrone for me, Beef Stew of some sort for him)

Tuesday: My italian mac-and-cheese, which I'll post a recipe for at some point.

Wednesday: Pulled Chicken (instead of pork) sandwich for Matt; falafel sandwich for me!

Thursday: Spaghetti with Tofu sauce (saute tofu in butter, garlic, and italian seasoning until browned, then add it to a jar of spaghetti sauce), with bread and steamed veggies

Friday: Dinner out with the boyfriend's parents!

Saturday: We're going to a college football game! Hooray! (who knwos what I'll end up eating!)

Sunday: Left overs, or broccoli/carrot/celery/whatever-extra-veggies-I-have-left stirfry over brown rice.

I am in the same situation as you. I have been a vegetarian for about 15 years or so, my husband will not touch vegetables. So I tend to make seperate meals, but I try to make something similar so it doenst seem so bad.

Looks good, and practical! Hopefully your boyfriend can enjoy more veggie meals so you dont have to cook two separate ones! My mom always said 'you'll eat it if you're hungry!'.
