What’s Cookin’


After a month of doctor’s appointments, house guests, and family celebrations, this week is a quiet one. Praise the Lord! I’m hoping that since we have nowhere to go this week, we will be able to reestablish some routines. And since my cupboards are full, I don’t think I need to buy anything other than our fresh fruits and veggies.

Using what I have, I’ve been utilizing this meal planner from Betty Crocker. It’s got a nice tear-off grocery list that is really helpful. It’s magnetic so I can keep it on the fridge for easy reference. And it was free – all the beter!

Here’s what’s on my menu this week:

Monday
Oatmeal
Tuna Sandwiches/Salade Nicoise
Beans and Rice w/ toppings

Tuesday
eggs and toast (Greek Eggs* for me!)
Pasta Salad
Shredded Beef Tacos*, Beans, and Rice

Wednesday
cereal
snacky lunch*
Marx Foods’ Blogger Game Sausage Recipe Challenge (I’m one of 11 contestants – stay tuned!)

Thursday
banana bread and smoothies
leftovers
Chili and Cornbread

Friday
waffles
chili dogs
pizza* and salad

Saturday – my college roommate Laura is visiting!
pancakes* with Papa
Chef’s Choice
sliders, fruit salad, veggies and dip

Sunday
cinnamon rolls and fruit
lunch out after church
grilled chicken, rice pilaf, and grilled veggies

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
