Default Bulking diet advice please =]

Hey, so I've read a few articles on here, and have been working out and eating fairly well for the past 3 months or so. Gone from 140lbs doing mostly just dumbbell curls *laughs* to 180lbs (plateau kind of, now) with squats, bench, and deadlifts. I'm a "hard gainer" I guess, but the beginner gains were very good to me so far.

K, so my current diet on my good days are looking like this:

meal 1- (6-7am)
1 cup oatmeal
1 Med. Banana
1 Cup 2% Milk
1 scoop whey

meal 2- (9 or 10am)
2 eggs
2 slices of bread
1 slice cheese

meal 3- (noon)
4oz chicken breast / or about 13 small sized shrimp
1 whole broccoli (should i eat the stems too?)
1 cup brown rice / OR 1 cup yogurt mixed with some oatmeal
1 apple, and sometimes an orange too.

meal 4- (2 or 3pm)
1 can of tuna
2 slices of bread
1 fat lettuce leaf
some mayo/relish (tbsp each about)

meal 5- (5 or 6pm)
right now, it's random, but next week I plan to be doing 1 or 2 turkey burgers here.

meal 6- (9pm)
1 cup oatmeal, milk, and a scoop of casein.


I know you guys know your stuff, so any comments would be very welcomed and appreciated. I've considered incorporating big macs into the diet but I'm convinced there's a better way

You are eating healthy foods already, just eat more of them don't make it complicated and don't eat the Big Mac. If your progress stalls, then figure out a way to increase your calories by 250-500 or so and monitor it for a week or two to see if you start gaining again.

always in the afternoon, usually about 4-6pm depending on when i get home for that day. if i'm feeling well fed i'll just down a shake then go at it, and my 5th meal would be the post work out meal (shortly after the post-wo shake).

on the days where i come home hungry i'll slam a shake and eat some carbs, then get into a workout, another shake and another meal afterwards, followed by the oatmeal at 9pm.

Haha, alright man. Thanks. I just got some fat free popcorn so I'll be fitting that in there somewhere.

I would add a tablespoon of pb to a few meals... that should get things moving in the right direction.
