Default Weekly Menu Plan

This year we have incorporated a weekly dinner menu that is standard every week. Lunches are usually left overs or quick sandwiches, but we make sure we have a nutritious dinner every night. This is what our weekly plan looks like:

Monday - Vegetables and legumes night
Tuesday - Seafood night
Wednesday - grilled chicken breast night
Thursday - Soup and salad
Friday - Pasta night
Saturday - Free night
Sunday - Time consuming dinner prep

So far on Mondays we always have blanched dandelion greens with a light vinegraitte, accompanied by yellow split pea puree or some form of dahl.
Every other night is open for anythig, Tuesday could be poached salmon night or it could be calamari, or tuna, or sushi, or whatever is seafoodish. Lots of room for improvisation but always making sure we're getting plenty of veggies, protein, and legumes.

What is your weekly menu like?
