Menu Plan Monday

This is my last week where my mother-in-law is doing the majority of the dinner cooking. (She's been living with us for three months & leaves this weekend). As a result, I'll focus on breakfasts & lunches this week, & taking over the reins again for cooking on Sunday night.

I made quite a few items over the weekend, so we have fresh choices to choose from. I made two batches of these English muffins, in an attempt to ditch the more expensive Costco versions. Not in love with the way these came out - tasted more like a biscuit. M called them "pasty white". Will have to keep experimenting.

Made 4 batches of banana wheat germ muffins with some bananas that were about to go bad. These are amazing & extremely easy to make.

Made 2 batches of blackberry muffins with blackberries we picked & froze earlier in the summer. Cut the butter in half & found that they still tasted amazing. Yum, yum, yum.
  • Monday - out with a friend to celebrate her engagement. Getting something healthy, as I'm trying to hit a weight loss goal by Friday!
  • Tuesday - Persian Chicken Kabob (similar to this) with herbed rice (similar to this)
  • Wednesday - Zucchini stew (similar to this) with hummus & crackers on the side, & fruit
  • Thursday - Meat & split pea soup (similar to this) with pita bread & fruit
  • Friday - Toasted cheese sandwich with hummus, cucumbers, & tomatoes
  • Saturday - grilled chicken panini or leftovers
  • Sunday - Leftovers

I'm also going to try my hand at a squash bread, to use up some of the garden bounty. It sounds a little sketchy, but the reviews look promising!
