Week 198 Menu

Today’s photo is a teaser. I’m not telling you what’s under those sesame buns. At least for now. I will. Don’t worry. But today I just want to share this pretty picture.

What the? I totally followed my menu plan last week! Which means I can’t steal even one idea from myself. Which means this week I have to come up with a completely original menu. Which means I might have to give up on this ‘being responsible’ nonsense. It’s way too much work. 😉

– Sweet Italian sausages with sauteed peppers, onions and tomatoes, on hoagie rolls
– Fresh fruit or smoothies

– Nate’s Omelettes
– Spinach salad with pears

Chicken Tortilla Soup

– Leftovers

– Baked potatoes and salad

– Eat out

– Pumpkin Pancakes

As usual, having all of your menus to browse was a HUGE inspiration. So, please keep ’em coming! Share your menu for the week!
