Here at home, I'm trying to get back into the swing of menu planning. After 3+ months of morning sickness, I haven't quite planned enough to tackle a freezer cooking session or a monthly meal plan, but the weekly plans are back. Sarah from Loved Like The Church inspired me with her crafty dry erase board, and last week I made one myself for our weekly menu!
So easy to make...our new menu board is sitting on the table momentarily, until I put up a hook for mounting it on the wall. For now, it makes our kitchen table look like a little corner in a cafe. :) Have I mentioned that in the last few weeks I have been nesting like crazy? All I want to do is purge, make lovely crafty things, and organize. My hubby is considering nailing his belongings down (not really, but I do love to purge!).
But back to meals...I missed our local grocery store while we were gone and now I'm back to shopping there for most of our produce and meat. Today I found these organic tomatoes on markdown, so I think we have fresh salsa in our future. Ooooh-la-la.
Here's what the week should look like meal-wise:
Breakfasts: Cold Cereal, Cream of Wheat, Oatmeal, Eggs, Toast.
Lunches: Leftovers, sandwiches
Monday--Taco Salad with fresh salsa (taco meat recipe here).
Tuesday--Chuck Roast with Carrots (anyone have a fabulous crockpot recipe?)
Wednesday--Crustless Quiche with Spinach
Friday--Pizza Night with Salad
Saturday--Chicken Broccoli Stir-Fry (some variation of this stir-fry recipe)
Sunday--Steaks on the grill, sweet potatoes
Maybe I'll have a mini freezer cooking session and make some batches of pizza dough and taco meat early this week. :)
In other news, I think the July/August Florida heat has finally done our garden in. I'm starting to think about seedlings for a Fall garden, but I think I'm going to keep it small and maybe try growing more flowers. What are your favorite veggies or flowers to plant in a Fall garden?
