Welcome to another planned week and thank goodness for a plan because I’ve got a crazy hectic week ahead of me. School is winding up for us here (our last day of school is on June 29th) and with that comes many activities including my daughter’s grade 7 commencement. I know many of you finished up school quite some time ago but here in Canada our school calendar year is a little bit different.
Two recipe highlights this week. Homemade Macaroni and Cheese is so easy to make and so much healthier as well. I use whole wheat pasta and light cheddar cheese. I made mine slightly different from the recipe above in that I melted all the cheese into the white sauce and then added some cornflakes crumbs to the top. I also halved the recipe and it fit perfectly in my Foldtuk dish. Delicious!
The other recipe I really enjoyed (even though I had a little panic attack while making them) was the Pepperoni Pizza Wheels. I’m the type of gal that needs very detailed instructions so when it came time to roll the pizza dough up I didn’t know if I was suppose to roll up the long end or the short end. So I finally decided on the long end and then proceeded to make a huge mess trying to roll it. I had flashbacks to my Pizza Braid disaster. Sauce and pepperonis were falling out all over the place. The good news is though that this recipe is very forgiving and by the time they were cooked you couldn’t even tell my goof ups. These made for a terrific potluck dish because I made them up ahead of time and served them cold and they were still good! They went so fast I didn’t even get a picture :)
Okay so before I jump into my menu plan, I just want to take a moment to welcome you if you are new to menu planning and offer you a great resource for getting started. It’s a post written by Annie of Annie’s Eat called Menu Planning – Tips & Tricks and it has a lot of helpful information in it.
