Meal Plans

Oh no, where are the fun meal suggestions for the week? I love that part of the website, and now it's gone! Any chance this feature will be returning to the new website?

Meal Plans à la Frenchy

I am looking forward to at least trying some of your recipes! I am on post-holiday Budwig détox at the moment, interrupted by a yoghurt shortage, dinner out, a spider bite, my piece of orange roughy being misappropriated... I will really be able to enjoy the flavors when I get through this. Lorraine

Merci Beaucoup

Deborah, those lunch menus look amazing! Can't wait to try! Should people comment on this thread to avoid dissecting the menu thread? Thanks again! Lorraine


POSTED: Thu, 07/09/2009 - 6:25pm

Yes please!

I was hoping we could do that so as not to disrupt the flow of the menu plan. I will do a separate thread for the dinner. I am so glad someone has seen them! This is really quite thrilling for me.

Those are just great.Perfect to take to work for lunch or supper.Fine job! Jean


POSTED: Fri, 07/10/2009 - 5:30am

Thank you

Merci Jean. I would also like you to know that you can vary the bread. If you like wraps by all means use wraps. They also work well in Romaine leaves rolled or folded. More to come later today and a few dinner ideas.


POSTED: Fri, 07/10/2009 - 10:48am

You are welcome

Waiting for the next installment.The idea of Romaine leaves has caught my imagination.Will do that.Jean

You can also stuff the tomato with the tuna mixture. I will have the next group in about 2-3 hours. Dinner thread will also be coming at that time. The tofu and bok choy is a fave!

These menus make my mouth water. Am just thinking of going to bed as it is 22.38 here in UK but will print off tomorrow and try some over the weekend. Sleep well ladies when the time comes. Marilyn

Sweet Dreams to you...

dream of those menus!! Jean

Bon soir everyone

Good evening everyone. First let me apologize for missing an ingresient in the spaghetti sauce and that is the basil. You may use fresh at the end of the cooking process prior to serving or dried at the beginning of the cooking process. I don't know what I was thinking in forgetting this crucial ingredient. And the chicken parmesean that I had for dinner tonight was vegetarian...another Quorn product. I hope you can get these where you are.


POSTED: Fri, 07/10/2009 - 7:40pm

Bon Soir

No problem...all the best Chefs do that.Got to get cooking my dins.Getting hungry and also crave a cup of well,my dear.Jean


POSTED: Fri, 07/10/2009 - 11:15am


Thank you for thinking of ethnic and vegetable dishes! Lorraine


POSTED: Fri, 07/10/2009 - 11:07am

Super ideas

Also love stuffed peppers in the Winter.Can't wait for the next bit.You really are a doll to do all this work for us.J.

On the old website, there was a recommended weekly meal plan for each day- breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It was great because you could either eat exactly what was planned for the day, or tweek it to your liking. Very convenient feature!


POSTED: Sat, 05/29/2010 - 11:54pm

Miss the Menus, too!

I too, miss the weekly meal plans...they were very helpful...and sometimes just what I needed to "inspire" me to eat well. Please bring them back!!!


POSTED: Sun, 05/30/2010 - 8:06am

I am so sorry

for not being able to keep up with regular menus. While working as a teacher, during the school year it is hard for me to get them mapped out. Summer is fast approaching (3 and 1/2 days left) I promise I will have more menus for everyone. Please forgive the delay. I would like to have it set up where breakfast lunch and dinner are all there for each day. These will be "working people" friendly. I just look at some menu plans and shudder. They seem to be made for people who have no job and a personal chef. Sunday will be the exception as I love Sunday dinner ala family. I will post a new thread under the Recipes section titled Menu.


POSTED: Sun, 05/30/2010 - 3:53pm


So glad you will be back on the menu track this summer. I don't know how you manage to fit everything in with your busy life. How will you fit in studying next year? Enjoy your summer break and RELAX!!


POSTED: Tue, 06/02/2009 - 4:46pm

I wonder...

I wonder if we could come up with something similar under the recipe section.


POSTED: Wed, 06/03/2009 - 6:12am

Sounds like a great Idea.....

people could post their meal plans!


POSTED: Wed, 06/03/2009 - 5:15pm

Great idea!

Sign me up! This is a great idea.


POSTED: Wed, 06/03/2009 - 7:10pm


That would encourage me to make one...or I could steal yoursLOL Jean


POSTED: Sun, 07/05/2009 - 9:21am

Hi Jean

Let me sit down and work one out and I will put it up for you and the girls. What are preferences? Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner? Or just two of the three or a weeks worth of Breakfast...etc.? I have a ton of meal plans. I also have meal plans for the vegetarian as I used to be veg. Will explain that one later.


POSTED: Sun, 07/05/2009 - 9:32am

Hi Frenchy

That is really kind of you.Lunch and dinner for me would be helpful.Breakfast I find easy.And Veg.meal plans would help.I try to limit meat and do more veg.Do you have or can you suggest any tofu reciepes ?Would like to learn to cook it properly....I have had Ginger Tofu at a restaurant but can't seem to find a reciepie.Have a fine day.Jean


POSTED: Sun, 07/05/2009 - 9:56am

You're here!

I had no idea anyone else was on now. Wonderful to hear from you. Give me a day or two and I will begin a new thread called Le Menu. It will have meal plans and I'll have to dig for the recipe you are looking for. The thread will be placed in the "Recipes" column. Have a wonderful Sunday. What are your plans for today? I have to take some clothes back to a shop and get different sizes. I profane of dressing rooms. Much prefer to try on at home with appropriate shoes, shirts...I have a ton of tofu recipes.


POSTED: Sun, 07/05/2009 - 10:15am

The Crack of Dawn Gang

That would be us.LOLMy MacKie had me out early.Thanks for this.I will look forward to it.What a smart idea to try clothes on at home....I,too,!@#$%^&^** dressing rooms.Today,it is laundry,and then work(sob) at 3:15 -11:15.It is a very unpleasant place to be at the moment.People are extremely ill and that means a lot of screaming,threats and some physical aggression.But we will work as a team and folks will get better and become the lovely people they really are.Jean


POSTED: Sun, 07/05/2009 - 1:26pm

It's the crack of dawn here,

in the Sandwich Isles, but Marilyn assures me it is dusk where she is, lol. The Hawaiian poodle and I have become early-rising pals ;^). As soon as I'm over the jet-lag, it'll be time to go home. Lorraine


POSTED: Wed, 07/08/2009 - 8:38pm

I'm ready!

Ok everyone I am now ready with your meal plans. Where would you like the new thread for easy access? Your foodie wishes are my command!:) P.S. These are lunch and dinner unless there is a special request for breakfast /brunch ideas for entertaining. And Jean your soy recipes are here too!!


POSTED: Thu, 07/09/2009 - 5:11pm

Bonjour, Deborah!

...And could you cook it for me, too, please? ;^) Lorraine


POSTED: Thu, 07/09/2009 - 5:20pm
