Menu Plan Monday -- Last Full Week of August!


I'm so happy that we're at the end of August! Time seems to be flying by. My kids have already been in school 3 weeks. It's almost September, which brings with it weather that's a tiny bit cooler. Then, there's October, which brings with it my wedding anniversary and Halloween, and cooler weather still. And before we can blink, it'll be November, with Thanksgiving and the newest Harry Potter movie (so excited about this!), and Christmas will sneak up on us, and we'll be back to New Year's Day!

So what will that mean for cookathome2010.blogspot.com? We'll have some changes, but it will all be for the better. Anyway, I'll talk about that when the time draws nearer.

Three exciting things coming this week: two reviews and a giveaway! Stay tuned for details on those.

We really enjoyed these foods last week:










Here's what I'm planning to cook this week (and Monday of next week):

  • Something with two gigantic Porterhouse steaks. I'd like to do something new with them, rather than the same delicious grilled steaks we usually do. This is the only meat meal we'll have all week.
  • Lentil Sloppy Joes on homemade rolls
  • Black Bean Burgers, also on homemade rolls
  • Quiche
  • Rice & Vegetables with Gravy
  • Pintos & Rice. Possibly with cornbread.
  • 2 nights of leftovers, to use up whatever's needing to be eaten.
The above will be served with any number of the following:
  • carrots
  • parsnips
  • broccoli
  • green beans
  • corn on the cob
  • cauliflower
  • cucumbers
And here's what I'll likely be baking this week:
  • several varieties of bread
  • sugar-free coconut macaroons
  • honey popovers
  • muffins of some sort
Lunches: Army Man, Picky Eater, and Bayberry take lunch each day. I'll be eating whatever's leftover or whatever looks good.

Breakfasts: pancakes, waffles, oatmeal, fruit, eggs, and juice

Your a Harry potter fan to?! Me and my two youngest children are BIG fans! We've read all the books, and seen all the movies so far. Can't wait for the new one coming out.

Those oatmeal cookie pancakes look so good, I'll have to try them soon.

Those maple dinner rolls look amazing. I have a recipe for lentil sloppy joes that I'm anxious to try--your menu reminded me of this. :)
