June Meal Plans - Week 1

Here is the meal plan for this week.  As always, it is subject to change!  This week I have some milk I want to use up before it spoils.  There might or might not be some baking to use up the milk!  I haven't grocery shopped this week, so everything used will be from the fridge, freezer, and pantry.

Brunch - Milk rice, fish curry, tangerine
Dinner - Broiled chicken drumstick, salad

Brunch - Scrambled egg, fried potato, bacon, followed by a fresh peach
Dinner - Spaghetti with meat sauce (ground beef, can of pasta sauce, diced onion, grated carrot, sliced celery, and broccoli), carrot sticks, yogurt

I browned 1 lb. ground beef, took some for the meat sauce and froze the rest.  There is quite a bit of the sauce left and I am debating if I want to freeze it for later or use it to make a pan of "lasagna" (I don't have ricotta and Parmesan cheese for a proper lasagna, only mozzarella)  which will then be portioned out and frozen. 

Brunch - French toast
Dinner - Rice, fish curry, green beans

Brunch - Pancakes or paratha
Dinner - Spaghetti with meat sauce; salad

Brunch - Leftover pancakes or paratha
Dinner - Pot roast slices (from the freezer), green beans, carrots, etc., and baked potato

Brunch - Uppuma (Indian style semolina)
Dinner - Rice with smoked sausage stir-fry, maybe

Brunch - Scrambled egg and fried potato? 
Dinner - Leftover rice with stir-fry

Is anyone else making any meal plans in June?


  1. I haven't done a detailed plan for next week. Instead I have made a list of the things I want to use up and will tick them off as I use them.

    1. I think I should probably do the same! Too often, I don't feel like eating what I write down! Or, maybe I should just list the meal possibilities and take if from there.

  2. No meal plan but I did leave out some butter to soften today, so I could make Welsh Cakes, which I did this afternoon. I hadn't had any for years and had never made them before. It is great that they cook on a griddle or frying pan and the oven isn't needed in hot weather. I really like this kind of quick bread, they're not too sweet and don't even need butter on them.

    1. I hadn't heard of Welsh cakes, before, so had to look them up. They sound delicious and might be something to try, one day. I need to buy currents or raisins, first. :)

  3. Cooking successfully for one is just a major pain in the elbow ... always either too much or not quite enough for really adequate leftovers- it does look like you manage to work around those issues though-
    Oh, those gorgeous peaches! since I am destined to support our local farmers this year, I am really getting anxious to get to some of the farm-stands that usually pop up around in this area- you can know I will be buying as much as we can possibly use here-meanwhile I keep finding more blackberries, but they are coming to an end, so I need to get out daily for the next few days and bring those in- the fig trees are looking like there will be a lot to pick too- they aren't at the top of my list, but they can surely be versatile-
    We are going to have more rain ... this is getting ridiculous- I must see if I am developing webbed feet-
    As always, fondest thoughts to you and yours-

    1. I have the choice of cooking just enough for one meal and cooking every day or making extra and having that for several meals and having a break from cooking. I also try to keep a few items on hand that can make a quick meal on the days when I don't feel like cooking. :)

      Ooh, you have fig trees, too? Wow! Lucky you!

      Hope all is well with you, too, Barb. Take care.

  4. I got a delivery of groceries today, so my meals will revolve around what was available. This week I received all the berries and veggies I asked for, so that was great. I asked for a family tray of chicken parts and got boneless, skinless chicken breasts at full price *ouch*. I also asked for a leg of ham or a pork roast. Apparently there was none to be had. So my entrees will consist of chicken or ground beef. I had taken out my last packet of farmer's sausage for dinner last night, but was gifted with freshly caught pickerel by my next door neighbour yesterday. So I had that instead. See Bless!! I have great neighbours too.

    1. I am glad you got a delivery of groceries, today. Ouch, indeed, on having to pay full price on the chicken breasts! I am so glad that you, too, have great neighbors, Susan; I'm glad that they are taking care of you. :)
