Menu Plan Monday ~ Aug 23rd
Hey ladies, how are you? We meet again! I’m finally settling into my home here and feeling somewhat organized. I say somewhat because the kids start school in a week and I still haven’t created a backpack station…talk about living on the edge..lol.
So ever since I won my Kitchenaid Mixer from Pioneer Woman last year I’ve been wanting to make bread with it. But I haven’t because I’m completely intimidated by the thought of it all. I’ve never ever made homemade bread any other way than with the help of a bread machine (please tell me I’m not the only one) and as those of you who have been around here for awhile know, I don’t exactly have the best track record in the kitchen. If you are new to my site, let me introduce you to one of my cooking nightmares, so painful. Anyway all that to say I need counseling help. If you happen to have a tutorial on your site about making bread can you leave a link for me in the comments. Or, you know, if you’d like to come on over and just walk me through the steps in person that would be even better :) Okay that one might be logistically challenging so how about a video guide? I’m a visual girl that needs more help than you could ever imagine a teeny tiny bit of hand holding. Anyone? Anyone?
All the recipes I tried last week were absolutely delicious. Oh my goodness, yum! We really enjoyed the Pizza Roll Up Burritos, such a fun change to traditional pizza. The Minestrone Soup was also yummy and pretty easy to throw together and my daughter was nice enough to whip up some yummy baking powder biscuits to go with it.
I’ve heard from many people how organizing coupons can be quite the challenge. Well this week I’m going to send you over to visit From the Same Nest to read their most excellent tutorial on creating a coupon binder. Love it!
So here’s what we’ll be eating this week:
Monday: Quick Homemade Spaghetti Sauce
Wednesday: Sherri’s Aussie Chicken (missed from last week)
Thursday: Leftover buffet
Friday: Hawaiian Meatloaf
Saturday: Breakfast for dinner ~ Applesauce Pancakes
Sunday: Pizza Quesadillas
WHAT’S ON YOUR MENU THIS WEEK?
Everyone is welcome to participate! Menu planning has been such a lifesaver for me and I hope it is/will be for you as well. Give it a try!
