Menu Plan Monday - Week of September 21, 2014

Wheat Berry Salad - my lunch one day last week.  Wheat kernels, mixed greens, walnuts, dried cranberries and a vinaigrette dressing.  Tasty and filling!  This is my go-to when we don't have leftovers to take.

It's Monday again and that means it's time to share what we're eating this week!

We have a week where John has evening meetings Monday through Wednesday and I have something Thursday evening and then we have a pot luck on Saturday evening.   John will be home for dinner every night but Wednesday and I'll be home for dinner every night so we need things that are easy or already cooked (hello crockpot!) so we can eat quick and go to our evening things.  Here's what we're eating:

  1. Your wheat berry salad looks delicious! I think I will try that. I have never used wheat berries very much whole but it seems like that would be a good fit for our current cooking situation. Thanks for the idea!
