What’s Cookin’

Posted By Jessica Fisher On June 1, 2009 @ 2:52 am In Meal Planning | 2 Comments

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 [5]. 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:

Tuna Sandwiches/Salade Nicoise [6]
Beans [7] and Rice w/ toppings

eggs and toast (Greek Eggs* for me!)
Pasta Salad [8]
Shredded Beef Tacos*, Beans, and Rice

snacky lunch*
Marx Foods’ Blogger Game Sausage Recipe Challenge [9] (I’m one of 11 contestants – stay tuned!)

banana bread [10] and smoothies [11]
Chili and Cornbread

waffles [12]
chili dogs
pizza* and salad

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

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