Menu Planning Monday – June 15

Last week Zachary & Serenity made breakfast all week long.  They set their alarm and got up at 6a.m. and had it ready by 7!  Usually we eat at 8-8:30 so this was quite an adjustment for me.  Serenity was pretty tired by the end of the week, missing that extra hour of rest in the morning time.  Zachary is an early bird so it was not unusual for him.  This week I’m back on breakfast duty. 

This week things needed to be simple since my friend and her kids will be spending most of the week with us.  We’re going to be busy sewing (besides LOTS of jabbering) so I don’t want to make things too time consuming in the food department.  Hmmm, what to have?

How about…


Breakfast – Waffles

Supper – Elk steaks, baked potatoes, veggie


Breakfast – Eggs Baked in Fresh Tomato Salsa w/ Melted Cheese

Supper – Spaghetti


Breakfast – Blueberry Pancakes

Supper – Tomato Basil Soup w/ Cheese Tortelloni


Breakfast – Egg Burritos

Supper – Lasagna, Salad, Breadsticks- I’m having a group of homeschoolers over to work on props and crafts for our Back to the Middle Ages Speech Day.  They’ll be here for supper.   I’ll be contributing the lasagna.


Breakfast – Rice Cereal

Supper – Tacos using elk hamburger

Menu Plan Monday – June 8

Last week we tried a few new recipes.  The Olive Garden Salad and Dressing was excellent and is something I will make again.  The Quick Beef Wraps and Thai Cucumber Salad (both from Healthy in a Hurry by Company’s Coming) were good but did not wow me enough to want to make again – especially the Quick Beef Wraps.  I didn’t get to make the Honey Gingered Salmon on Friday since I was missing a few ingredients.  So we had broiled salmon instead. 

This weeks menu notes…

MondayBeef Stroganoff (a new recipe)

Tuesday – Green Chile Enchiladas (using leftover sauce), Salad

Wednesday Cheesy Chicken Vermicelli (a new recipe that Laura at I’m an Organizing Junkie tried and gives a thumbs up to), Salad, Bread?

Thursday – Pinto Beans (we love our beans) & Cornbread 

Friday – We’re going to the Science Museum and won’t be home for supper!
