Menu Plan Monday: November 2012, Part 1

As I post this, I am studying for my exam tomorrow, cozy and prepared for Sandy’s decent on us tomorrow and hoping that we don’t see too much damage from the storm! I made my last minute trip to the store yesterday for what constitutes as necessities in our house: milk, peanut butter, Craisins, Crystal Light Fruit Punch and Triscuits. But the man behind me had his emergency stash of beer on the belt, so I felt like I looked much more practical. Oh, well.

In any case, November is a very busy month for me. My syllabus alone is rough: half of the semester’s exams take place this month- blech. Add into that Thanksgiving, Moo’s birthday and holiday shopping, and it just starts to descend into madness.

Thus, it’s mostly repeats this month, with one or two newbies. I am still trying to bring in more meatless, yet protein-rich, options. And seafood. Seafood is one area I am still having trouble with- it’s very hard to meal plan when you don’t necessarily know what’s on sale for fish, and you can’t re-freeze “previously frozen at sea” stuff. Plus, I don’t eat shellfish. So we are basically down to haddock, salmon, tilapia and swordfish. Sigh. If I can get my hands on some fish this week, this meal plan may adjust a bit to accomodate.
