Menu Plan Monday

Well, I'm skipping town for the weekend. Some friends and I are renting a cabin in the middle of nowhere for some quality girl time. I'm trying to tell myself that I WILL be able to live without the Internet for a few days.

In the meantime my family will be left to fend for themselves for a few days. A couple of mornings they are going to eat cold cereal. (They are going to be so excited when I tell them.) And of course every bachelors standby is hot dogs and frozen tater tots. That's gourmet for a bachelor, isn't it?

And the few days leading up to my departure will be full of veggies and lentils and rice. I'm hoping to fill them full of healthy stuff before the mac and cheese madness begins.


Oatmeal with brown sugar and pecans
Pumpkin Bread and fruit
Pumpkin Oatmeal
Poached eggs and toast
Cold Cereal
Cold Cereal


Brown Rice and Lentil Casserole, green beans
Turkey and Rice Soup, buttery bread machine rolls
Ziti Pepperoni Casserole, Steamed Veggies
Briami over brown rice, Crusty Homemade Bread
Crockpot Lentil and Sausage Soup, Peasant Bread
Hot Dogs and Tater Tots

Head on over to Menu Plan Monday at Organizing Junkie's blog and see what's cooking around the country.

WHAT THE????????

Tell your friends that I'm also a dearly beloved friend who wouldn't mind scrubbing said cabin's floors to get a chance at a getaway.

Jealousy doesn't become me...hmph.

How do you find your good recipes? I go to Recipezaar and get lost.

This weeks veggie one looks really good.

A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do. ;) When I go out of town, it's a foregone conclusion that my guys will eat out. Then I come home, cook something simple, and they rave about my cooking! hee hee

Gayle, I just wanted you to know that I've FINALLY gotten off my butt and started doing a weekly menu plan. It's only taken me a good year or so to get the motivation, but God is really convicting me to get some discipline in this area of my life - The Grocery Budget! I'm just going to try it and see how it goes, but I wanted to thank you for the inspiration.
