The Maher Weekly Menu

Wow...we are finally moved and most of the boxes are unpacked so now I have a few extra moments to get myself organized. I thought it best to go back to meal planning because it just helps me keep things on track for the week.
This week and probably next I am going to attempt to use as much of the food we have on hand and not go to the grocery store. I will have to make one short trip to pick up fresh produce to make green salads and baby food.
Tonight I am going to soak beans to make a Bob's Red Mill 13 bean soup. This is my favorite. However, Shane thinks soups are appetizers so I rarely make them as a main course for dinner. During the fall and winter I try to make one pot of soup a week. This is what Hadassah and I have for lunch during the week with homemade bread.

Monday: Leftover beef roast over brown rice with gravy and green beans.
Tuesday: Ground beef, black bean taco dish with tortillas and cheese.
Wednesday: Family dinner!! Chicken Pesto Pasta w/ pine nuts and green salad.
Thursday: Homemade pizza...
Friday: Leftovers from the week (Shane has drill so he will be away).
Saturday: Snack food for the road. Heading to Astoria to attend my dad's wedding. Quick trip down and back but the girls and I will need a little munch food along the way.
Sunday: Steak, mashed potatoes, corn and green salad.

Also this week I am going to try to use up as much of the extra zucchini I have by making bread and possibly zucchini cookies.

I had a huge zuc...too. I made two loafs of zuc and pinnapple loaf. Yummy - even Jared who isn't sure of 'green food' thinks its good.
Happy unpacking and i'll be thinking of you this upcoming weekend.
