Menu Plan Monday ~ Aug 25th + giveaways!
Hi all! It’s an exciting day today because not only is it Menu Plan Monday (which is oh so exciting in itself…he he) but we’re also going to have a giveaway as well!! Recently I purchased two separate e-books that I absolutely loved and wanted to tell you about. I was drawn to both of these recipe e-books because they involve cooking with children and as you know I’ve been trying to involve my daughter more in the process of preparing the meals (which isn’t always easy when your daughter really doesn’t want to be involved in preparing the meals).
So let me tell you a little bit more about these great e-books:
This e-book is well laid out and easy to read and it’s all about encouraging kids in the kitchen despite the mess. Jessica’s book offers simple solutions and helpful tips for cooking with little ones along with plenty of easy recipes to get the kids excited about getting involved. Jessica has had a lot of practice with this as she is set to give birth to her sixth child any day now! More information on this e-book can be found here.
The e-book offers recipes with a purpose, filling your kids’ bodies and souls with nourishment. Laura’s book comes complete with seven godly lesson plans all centered around a healthy recipe. In other words you get to make some fun recipes in the kitchen with the kids while giving them some spiritual insights at the same time to enhance the experience. I loved that Laura provides lesson plans for two different age groups as well, ages 4-10 and 11-18. You can find more details and a sample lesson plan here and here.
And because these lovely ladies are both so nice they are EACH going to giveaway a free copy of their e-book to a MPM participant today. So I’ll be picking two winners from the Mr. Linky below, all you have to do is link up to your menu plan as usual (by noon on Tuesday) and you are automatically entered. Easy peasy!
Some more exciting news around here (well for me anyway but hopefully you’ll like it too) is that I’ve finally started a recipe index of some of my family’s favorite tried and true recipes that I’ve posted about over the past year here on MPM. To make it easier for me (and you) to find these recipes I figured it was about time I had them all listed together in one area. Click on the link below to check it out. In the future you’ll be able to find the link listed under the MPM tab at the top of the page.
So here is what we’ll be eating this week (5 new recipes, that may be a record even for me!):
Monday: Roasted Pepper Ravioli Bake
Thursday: Leftover buffet
Sunday: If you can find it you can eat it day!
WHAT’S ON YOUR MENU THIS WEEK?
