May 2-week Menu

I didn't use all of my April meals for one reason or another, so some of them are re-appearing here.... I write this up and then make up a master grocery list off of it, buy the non-perishable stuff at the beginning and get the produce/dairy as I go along. Most of the meat I buy the month before when it's on sale. If/when we entertain, I skip one of these meals and do a new one or just double/triple what's on the menu. We had our neighbors over for an impromptu tofu stir-fry on Friday, and it worked great! They brought veggies to add, too, and everyone enjoyed it.

Week 1
  • Monday: Herb-Roasted Chicken, potatoes, green veggie
  • Tuesday: Risotto with leftover chicken in it, salad or green veggie
  • Wednesday: Red Beans and Rice (with sausage), veggie or fruit
  • Thursday: Chicken Kabobs, fruit, bread or rice
  • Friday: Pork Stir-Fry
  • Saturday: Hamburgers, crudite, baked beans
  • Sunday: Sandwiches (maybe hamburgers); dinner is Sausage Pie--we'll eat the leftovers for breakfast!

Week 2:
  • Monday: Pork Roast, Sweet Potatoes, Corn Muffins, Green veg.
  • Tuesday: Something with leftover pork... not sure what yet....
  • Wednesday: Beans and Rice
  • Thursday: Empanadas, Fruit, Crudite
  • Friday: Chicken Stir-Fry
  • Saturday: Fish Packets, Baked Potatoes, Fruit
  • Sunday: Sandwiches; nachos for dinner ... maybe....
