this week’s menu


Posted on Mar 4, 2013 in Food

I used to have a little menu widget in my sidebar that I updated each week with what we were planning on eating for dinner (including links to the recipes). I know a lot of folks loved it, but it turned out to be pretty annoying to update from a technical standpoint, so long ago, I scrapped the idea. Fans of the menu widget have been asking for a while now that I bring back a weekly menu element to BTHR, and I finally got around to it!

I’m not promising I’ll post our menu every single week, but I’m going to try to post it for you guys more often than not. One of the benefits of this longer post-format is that I get to talk about what we’re eating more detail, including info on our breakfasts, lunches and snacks! Alrighty, let’s go!

kale and chicken alfredo


We don’t usually “schedule” breakfasts each day, but we do like to have quite a few options available depending on our mood, so this week, here’s what breakfasts we have stashed in the fridge and pantry:

blender fruit smoothie


Lunches are the same deal for us, we like to have quite a few options each week just to fit in with whatever mood we’re in that day. I usually make large batches of these items on the weekend and then stash them in the fridge so we can eat on them all week-long.

living salad


Healthy snacks are one of the most important things to make sure I don’t go crazy on a bag of chocolate chips while working at home. Here’s what we’re snacking on this week:

date bites


My goal this week was to make a menu that didn’t really require us going to the grocery store at all. We have such a good stash of food in our two fridges, three freezers and two pantries, that I figure we must be able to eat without shopping! Here’s what I came up with:

chicken drumsticks

What are you eating this week?
