Menu Plan Monday

in Menu Plan Monday

In keeping with my May goal of cooking more, I’m trying a new plan where I cook one to two servings of a dish.  This a) allows me to cook more dishes, b) helps prevent food waste, and c) gives me some tasty lunches.  It seemed to work well last night; I had just enough leftover pasta to pack for my lunch today.  So lunches all week are leftovers and breakfasts are lemon raspberry muffins.

Sunday: Springtime Shrimp Pasta (recipe coming tomorrow!)
Monday: Sandwich (I’m babysitting and don’t want to eat out)
Tuesday: Pasta Florentine
Wednesday: Zucchini and ricotta galette
Thursday: Leftovers
Friday: No plans because I’m going to see my best friend!!

What’s on your menu this week?

That galette looks AMAZING! I wonder if I can get the hubs to eat it. If not, more for me!

Actually, on reflection, I think I'm going to do half zucchini and half squash. Thanks for the inspiration!!

You are welcome! I'm excited about it too. We'll have to compare notes; I'm interested to see how the squash turns out!

It was really good! At first I thought I'd do half and half, but when I was making it, I just alternated the slices and it was pretty AND tasty. I should have taken a picture >.<
