Meal plans and the week ahead

This is going to be a nice, low key week by the looks of it. I was supposed to be in Quebec again this week, but I'm able to stay home instead - yay!!  It will be very nice to have a low-key week to get lots accomplished in advance of our crazy week next week. I'm actually looking forward to doing some heavy duty cleaning in the house this week. For the last few weeks, we've just been doing light cleaning in most of the house (exceptions being the kitchen and bathroom are always cleaned well).

So anyway, here's the plan this week...

Sunday -

B: scrambled eggs with veggies
L: italian wedding soup with kale in the crockpot
D: italian style spaghetti squash; creamed spinach and swiss chard

Monday -
(roast butternut squash)
B: yogurt with grain-free apple cinnamon granola
D: baked chicken tenders; sweet potato fries; green beans from freezer

Tuesday - in Detroit
(clean bedrooms and bathroom)
B: pumpkin or cornbread muffins; fresh fruit
D: butternut squash soup; pumpkin muffins

Wednesday -
(clean living room and family room)
B: pumpkin or cornbread muffins; fresh fruit
D: loaded baked potatoes with local sour cream, raw cheddar, chives from garden; lettuce salads with veggies and homemade creamy dressing

Thursday -
(clean kitchen and dining room)
B: apples with cashew butter
D: leftovers

Friday - flex day; Kindermusik, milk and CSA pickup
(start beef stock in the crockpot; make yogurt; make soft cheese)
B: scrambled eggs with veggies
D: baked local whitefish; roasted brussels sprouts, carrots, cauliflower; lettuce salads

Saturday -
