I’m going to try it again! I’m going to do another Once A Month Mom Menu! I decided I wanted to try one more time before Baby Colette arrives and this way we’ll have some food on hand these last few weeks of pregnancy and the first few weeks of having a newborn (don’t worry, if you were planning on bringing us meals we still want them I wasn’t overwhelmingly impressed with the Traditional Menu that I tried last time so this time we’re going with the Whole Foods Menu. I’m doing June’s 2012 menu because I was able to do my planning a bit in advance.
I did my grocery shopping on Tuesday. I spent about $50 more than I did on the Traditional Menu. Here’s what’s on the docket – I’ve already ‘made’ the taco seasoning. I also made the freezer jam, but haven’t tried it yet (Picture the left!). The yogurt is in the crock pot as I type this (and I’m pretty excited about that!), and I think tonight I am going to make the crunchy coconut chicken so we can have it for dinner and then I’ll freeze the rest of it!
Here’s the menu for this month!
- Chicken Salad with Apricots
- Crunchy Coconut Chicken withApricot Sauce (or with Garlic Chili Sauce)
- White Pizza with Kale
- Roasted Garlic Mac and Cheese
- BBQ Short Ribs
- Lemon Ravioli and Summer Squash
- Bacon Crusted Pork Tenderloin
- Southwestern Skillet with Cornbread
- Coconut Curry Kebabs
