Menu Plan Monday: 27 Cheshvan, 5773 – fill-in-the-blanks edition


Why the weird dates? Click here to find out! 

Welcome!  We’re an Israel-bound (next summer) homeschooling Jewish family of 6 (2 parents, 2 teens, 2 littles) and all our meals are kosher.  Read my MPM intro here or just visit my big ol’ list of Everything We Eat.  We eat mostly vegetarian, kinda frugal, not always super-healthy, but in better, more organized periods of our lives, try to include one vegan meal every single week – on Vegan Vursday, of course!


Sunday (Today):  Tuna-Noodle Casserole @ Mommy’s House – anything I don’t have to cook is Yummmmmmy!

Monday:  Perogies, Mashpo & Peas – almost entirely from the freezer – yay!

Tuesday:  Bread and Hearty _____ Soup – I’m giving myself a break and plopping this in here as a TBD… I’ll plan WHICH bread and WHICH soup later on.

Wednesday:  Moroccan Meatballs and Fruity Couscous

Thursday:  Pasta with ______ – creamy, something of some sort?

Okay, it may not look like much, but I am hoping planning menus again will help me out of this massive overwhelming slump… anyone want to offer ideas for what kind of bread?  Soup?  Pasta??? 

Help me fill in the blanks – and maybe inspire yourself along the way!


  1. Ooof. We're kind of slumpy over here, too. That's a word, right?

    Almost anything warm and crusty is good with soup, bread-wise. I'm making lentil soup this week, though--it's parshat Toldot, and it fits right in! ;)

  2. I recommend Lentil soup since it goes with this week's Parsha. Or do a pumpkin soup since you have so much. Also will you share your recipe for the Moroccan meatballs?

  3. The meatballs are kind of a melange, a hybrid of 2 recipes and my own foodie intuitions. Here's a picture and links to the 2 original recipes...

  4. p.s. to everybody - I have NEVER met a lentil I loved. The shape, the taste... just, nope. Beans, yes, split peas, yes, chick peas, nope, lentils, nope. :-(
