Weekly Menu #1

I can do many things. I can do many things well. But, I am a terrible menu planner. This fall I am trying to simplify my life by coming up with a weekly menu plan which I may or may not stick to. Gluten free menu swaps are popular and perhaps I will try to figure out how to be included in one. Here is my plan for this week:

Monday: Lentils w/ Rice (Hard Boiled Eggs)
Tuesday: Chicken Paillard with Artichokes (Black Beans)--
Wednesday Homemade McDonald's Hamburgers and Fries--
Thursday: Shrimp Fried Rice (Plain Cold Shrimp)
Friday: Roast Chicken
Saturday: Take out from Gourmet Land
Sunday: Tacos with Corn Tortillas

I am planning on going to the Farmer's Market on Sunday for whatever I can find. Again, it's a plan--I will let you know. What I found with kids is that theory is one thing, reality is another. Anyone out there with recipes they would like to share, please email them to me and I will post--or email me a url to a recipe and I will post.

Here is my shopping list. Note to self--too much beef and chicken--but that is what everyone likes!

2# organic ground beef
3 onions
bag of frozen shrimp
1# organic chicken breasts - pounded flat
2 - 3.5# organic chickens
1# lentils
dozen eggs
1#black beans
gluten free bread crumbs
3 artichokes
3 cucumbers for homemade pickles
2 boxes organic strawberries
2 boxes raspberries
2 oranges
4 organic apples
corn tortillas
