Menu: Sept 29-Oct 1

Half-week menus rock!

French Onion Soup

Bumped from last week due to Life. Mr. Moon works the evening shift, and having meals ready to eat or easy to make when he gets home has really helped curb the urge to eat out. Also having to buy four new tires instead of the two we'd budgeted helped motivate sticking to the meal plan...

Leftovers! French Dip Sandwiches

What do you get when you have leftover "prime rib" roast, leftover french bread, and leftover french onion soup? Well if you scoop the onions out of the soup for the sandwich, you can add some flavoring to the soup broth and voila! Mr. Moon works, so at least it should be a quick "reheat" kind of dinner. After a day of unpacking and working, I'm sure he will appreciate an easy dinner.


Mr. Moon works. Fall gives me a craving for my mom's recipes, which are typically one-pot meals. I've worked out how to make this one from scratch, though this time I am going to have to open a can of cream of mushroom soup, just like mama made it! I'm really hoping we can get our bedroom a bit more put together that day, but if not it will have to be Wednesday. I'd hoped we could be a bit further along by this point, but there are only 5-7 boxes left to "unpack" and the rest is organizing.


  • Coffee protein shakes. It's working, I'm sticking with it. 


  • Bacon, cucumber, avocado, and tomato sandwiches. Maybe even with a rosemary chive cream cheese!
  • Grilled cheese and tomato soup
  • Chippy Dippy/burrito wraps
