Hello lovely ladies! How are you? Welcome to the first Menu Plan Monday of 2011! If you are looking to get yourself organized this year, planning a menu is an excellent place to start. I’m not kidding. The amount of head space and time it saves you is incredible. The many benefits of menu planning have been a lifesaver for me and my family. It’s definitely made for a much smoother running household that is for sure. If you are new here, welcome. Please feel free to browse the many different menu plans you see listed below, you’ll find a great variety of ideas and recipes.
Sunday was one of those grand days that just left me so in awe of God’s beautiful design everywhere I looked. It was Canadiana at it’s best. Pond skating and hockey! Here are just a few pictures of our fun:
The sunset was stunning. Sunsets like these are new for us as we were surrounded by mountains at all sides where we used to live and spent a lot of time socked in by clouds. Every day here I am blown away by the array of colors, it just doesn’t get old to me!
Okay so I need your help again. For Christmas I got a new waffle maker and used this recipe to make up a batch of Buttermilk Waffles. They were good but were soft and not very crispy. I’d prefer a little more crispy. If you’ve got a family favorite waffle recipe would you mind sharing the link in the comments for me. Thanks!
If you are looking for some menu inspiration and maybe a new recipe or two to try check out this resource put together by Finding Joy in My Kitchen. It’s a linky of all her (your) best recipes of 2010. She has a different post for each category. Check it out and feel free to add your own link. I’ve even snagged a recipe from over there for this week :)
Here’s what we’ll be eating:
Monday: Spinach Chicken Pasta
Tuesday: Brown Sugar Meatloaf served with rice and broccoli
Thursday: Leftover buffet
Friday: Pizza Sandwiches
Saturday: Spaghetti and Meat Sauce
