Menu Plan Monday

Menu Plan Monday linkup

You may notice that I only provide lunch menus for two days. This is because there is often so many leftovers from the day before that is what we eat. Same reason that there is only one dessert recipe. Because that is all we can manage to eat within a week lol.

Wednesday: Cilantro Lentils

Thursday: Cote de Boeuf with Bearnaise and Fries
       Green Beans sauteed with onions and topped with creme fraiche
