Menu Plan Monday ~ June 10/13


Welcome to another organized week of menu planning!  I hope you are all enjoying some sunshine wherever you are 🙂

The winner of the Fearless Feeding book giveaway last week was #114 ~ Lynn Delahunty.  Congratulations Lynn!!

Recipe Highlight:

Last week’s recipe highlight goes to the BBQ Cowboy Casserole from Free Time Frolics.  Easy and delicious as all my favorites are because I never want to spend more time in the kitchen than I absolutely have to.  I made this recipe even easier by using mashed potatoes from a box.  Oh yes I did because sometimes  a little cheater goes a long way.  Give it a try!

Cookies for a Cause:

Last week my daughter baked up some cookies for our annual  community wide love on our town day.  We went searching the internet for something different besides regular chocolate chip cookies just for a little variety.  We found these fun cookies made with jello called Chocolate Covered Strawberry Jello Cookies from This Silly Girl’s Life.  They were delicious and looked really pretty on the plate 🙂

    We grilled Renee’s Monterrey Chicken a few weeks ago and really enjoyed it. The other menu ideas are also helpful — thanks for sharing them.

    Those cookies look really delicious! It seems like all my family ever wants for a dessert is chocolate chip cookies. I may have to give those a try for some variety. Thanks for hosting!

    Hi there! I LOVE your site and have been trying to menu plan and LOVE organization (even though I’m not that organized)! At any rate, I was reading todays post about menu planning… just taking 3 days to start – great advice! And I was wondering if you would ever consider doing a giveaway with our aprons — it goes with the menu planning! Take a peek at my site – I think our adult aprons would be a super cute giveaway! Let me know your thoughts!
    Off to start 3 days of menu planning… baby steps 😉
