Menu Plan, Week of June 7


My children prefer their veggies raw.  Raw broccoli.  Raw cauliflower, Crunchy, raw carrots.  With dip, of course.  They’ll eat ’em cooked too, but… why bother?  The more you mess with veggies, the more nutrients they lose, right?  Simpler, healthier, keeps-my-kitchen-cooler.  Look for lots of fresh, raw veggies (and fruit!) in our summer menus.

Sunday, June 7

  • steak and egg scramble, banana raisin muffins, chocolate chip biscuits
  • roast beef, mashed potatoes, gravy, carrots (leftovers)
  • pan fried tilapia, peas, strawberries and bananas

Monday, June 8

  • banana raisin oatmeal
  • hot beef sandwiches, veggies and dip, apple slices
  • homemade chicken nuggets, broccoli and cauliflower with ranch dip, strawberries and bananas

Tuesday, June 9

  • steak and egg leftovers, muffins
  • pizza bar (make your own pizza on French bread slices), fresh fruit
  • fried chicken salad, then on to a carnival at our local nursing home — they promised lots of junk food and sugary drinks before bedtime.  Can’t wait.  😉
