What is everyone having this month (or week!)? I can't believe it is almost June already.

I just did this week's meal plan and shopping. About to start making quiches, zucchini bread, and samosas for the freezer! I put empanadas in there last night. I'm glad they're done, and I won't be making more for a long long time. Every time I do empanadas or calzones, I end up fighting with the dough for a long time and getting :
This week's menu is:
Sun 5/31: Curried butternut squash soup and potato samosas; salad with goat cheese (the rest of the goat cheese is going in the quiches)
Mon 6/1: Gnocchi with diced sweet potatoes and parmesan; poppy seed rolls
Tues 6/2: Falafel and quinoa-broccoli-feta salad
Wed 6/3: Spaghetti with tomatoes and white beans and parmesan; zucchini bread
Thurs 6/4: Goat cheese-veggie quiche; poppy seed rolls
Fri 6/5: Black bean cakes and quesadillas
Sat 6/6: Chickpea curry over rice; zucchini bread
Sun 6/7: Raspberry mock chicken and multigrain pilaf (looks like fun from Trader Joes, with couscous, chickpeas, rice, a whole bunch of stuff)
I finally just finished my June plan. Better late than never. I have been trying to do a month in advance. Sometimes things get moved around a little depending on work schedules but mostly it sticks. This way I only plan for things I have or know I am getting at the store/co-op.
We also build in 1 day a week that is for left overs. The rest goes to lunches.
This month there are about 4 new recipes to test out. I am learning to cook more vegetarian so I am trying to challenge myself a little to move beyond rice and beans
And Eviesmom- I totally stole your Gnocchi idea. We haven't had that forever and DH loves it.
