May Menu Week 1 (vegetarian!)

So for the month of may we are eating vegetarian. First time ever for us as a family. I am interested in seeing if this helps our picky eaters (ahem everyone but me) branch out and learn to like new foods.

Now since we don't have a ton of vegetarian recipes we make on a regular basis, I am making a menu plan. It will be the only way we don't eat Mac&Cheese from a box way too often. Snacks will consist on popcorn, granola bars, fruit, cheese cubes, peanut butter lollypops, etc. I will not list them seperate.

Saturday May 1:
Breakfast: Whole Wheat Pancakes
Dinner: Lentil Tacos (will need to cut back on seasoning), grapes, sliced cucumber

Sunday May 2:
Breakfast: Scrambled eggs on toast
Lunch: Bean Burgers, french fries
Dinner: Veggie Pie

Monday May 3:
Breakfast: cereal, milk, fruit
Lunch: Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches
Dinner: Shepherd's Pie, fruit

Tuesday May 4:
Breakfast: Cereal
Lunch: Leftovers
Dinner: Lemon Pepper Pasta (minus the spicy)

Wednesday May 5:
Breakfast: Cereal
Lunch: Black Bean Nachos
Dinner: Taquitos, guacamole, salsa, chips

Thursday May 6:
Breakfast: peanut butter toast
Lunch: leftovers
Dinner: Pasta with Alfredo, veggie, fruit

Friday May 7:
Breakfast: breakfast burritos
Lunch: Beans and Rice
Dinner: Fried Rice with Japanese 7 spice (if I can find it)

Subject to change, but at least I got the planning out of the way. Off to work on the grocery list so we can go grocery shopping!
