Menu Plan Monday


Many people dread Mondays. I've never shared that dread. I love Monday mornings. They're a new start. A fresh week. And they're menu planning days! I hope you'll come back for my recipes each day this week, and I encourage you to visit I'm an Organizing Junkie for roughly 300 more menu plans.
Here's this week's plan:
Breakfasts:
  • bagels from scratch
  • huevos rancheros
  • butter pecan waffles
  • other days will be oat bran hot cereal, oatmeal, cream of wheat, or scrambled eggs

Lunches:

  • All lunches this week will be leftovers from other meals for adults.
  • For children, packed school lunches will include sandwiches, fruit, carrots & ranch, cookies, and juice.

Dinners (I plan this menu a month in advance, so this is tentative. It depends on last minute schedule changes, appointments, and whims. I will get to every dinner item in the month of February, but here's what I have planned for the week ahead):

  • Honey-Nut Chicken over vanilla rice, with gingerbread men for dessert
  • (something I meant to get to twice this month already) chicken nuggets (homemade) with Alton Brown's mac & cheese
  • Chicken Noodle Soup and Garlic Bread Sticks
  • Beef-Barley Stew and corn muffins
  • Mini Meatloaves and Twice-Baked Potatoes
  • Red Beans & Rice, Cornbread, and Turnip Greens
  • Lentil-Rice Tacos

Planned Snacks and Desserts:

  • New York Style Cheesecake
  • Cinnamon-Sugar Soft Pretzels

You should both show up sometime between morning and night and chances are in your favor that something will be cooking at my house. :) Welcome, Trixie! I hope you'll keep visiting! :)

wow! You are my hero...bagels from scratch? I was proud of myself for getting to pizza dough from scratch. LOL Baby steps, right?

Michelle said...

You can do it, too! Come back later in the week and I will give you step-by-step directions with pictures. It was a success the first time I tried it. It doesn't take as long as it sounds and it's so worth the effort. They're YUMMY!! =D
