Menu Plan Monday: First Week Back

Posted in Food by Laura on January 26, 2009


School starts back for the Professor this week. Tuesdays will be pretty tiring for him this semester (four hours of teaching Calculus for Students Who Don’t Need Calculus), so from now on, those are our Easy Meal Days.

I am grateful his schedule is as condensed as it is this semester — he only goes in on Tuesdays and Thursdays. This is going to be nice for our gas budget, as well as for my work arrangement. (I work part-time outside of the home, but I only go in when the Professor can be home with baby Savannah. So far it’s working well, but we’re kind of at the mercy of the University to give us a workable schedule.)

Here’s what we have planned for this week:

Monday: Macaroni and Cheese with frozen peas on the side
Tuesday: Rotini and Broccoli (since whole wheat bowtie pasta isn’t available in our stores). We like to serve this with chicken breasts, salted, peppered, and sauteed in a little olive oil.
Thursday: Mongolian Beef. First time trying this. We’re using top round for the beef; I’ve read it’s good for stir fry dishes if you slice it thin and against the grain. I’ll let you know how that goes. I think I’ll also drizzle with a little sesame oil.
Saturday: Spaghetti and meat sauce.
