I haven't posted my menu plans for a while because well I haven't really really been on the ball with my menus lately. I have been cooking because everyone still needs to eat. I just haven't been puttin' love in to it, if you know what I mean.
On of my besties and I came up with a little plan that I think has inspired me a bit. We both have the Fix it and Forget it Big Book but haven't really done much with it. So, we have made a pack to cook at least 1 meal from it a week, really we are shooting for 2 per week but we just wanted to give ourselves a little grace, just in case life happens. We are going to rate each recipe from 1-10 and share any modifications that we made to the recipe. My sister and possibly a few other friends are supposed to be joining us (note to sister and friends - you all need to get on the ball, love you! )
I also recently got the $5 Dinner Mom cookbook and I am working on a few more recipes from the Make it Fast Cook it Slow cookbook. And I got a new stove, not brand new, just new to me so that also has me in the cooking kinda mood. Here is what I have cookin this week...
Lunch - PB & J's w/ cantaloupe
Dinner - For Meatless Monday we has Breakfast Night, nothing real fancy. The Hubs likes fried eggs on toast with cheese so that is what we had, along with some fruit.
Lunch - Grilled Cheese w/ Peaches and Blueberries
Dinner - Cog Au Vin, can't pronounce it but we are still gonna eat it. It sounds super yummy! This is from the Make it Fast Cook it Slow CKBK
Lunch - Dogs and Mac & Cheese with Carrots and Apples
Dinner - Pizza Rice w/ Green Beans. Everything my buddy and I go thru our cookbooks together via the telephone I am always drawn to this recipe for some reason. It sounds kid friendly and who doesn't love PIZZA! This is my 1 of 2 from the Fix it and Forget it Big CKBK.
Lunch - Turkey & Cheese Rolls w/ Bananas and Strawberries
Dinner - Salsa Chicken from Make it Fast Cook it Slow, over Rice w/ corn
Lunch - PB&J's w/ melon
Dinner - Two Cheeses Macaroni w/ Piggie's in a Blanket w/ Broccoli. This is my 2 of 2 from the Big Book. The two cheeses are cheddar and cottage cheese, shhhh don't tell my kids, some of them do NOT like cottage cheese. Should be very interesting. I am so thankful that Trader Joe's now sells crescent rolls! Welcome back pigs in a blanket and veggie pizzas!
Lunch - Chicken Nuggets, Applesauce and Peaches
Dinner - Pizza Wrap with Fruit and Carrots. These are from the $5 Mom CKBK
Lunch - Ham & Cheese Melts w/ Fruit
Dinner - Spaghetti w/ Fresh Bread (Lord willing) and Salad. A friend gave me an awesome recipe for homemade sauce, it is a W O W!! It is so easy to make. It is very hard to buy store bought anymore. I will post the recipe last this week.
Do you menu plan??
