Menu Plan Monday

We have a busy week ahead as we work on a moving sale and get ready to put my parents old house on the market. 30 years of stuff is a lot of work but their new house is amazing and they were ready for a change. I tried to plan my menu with meals that could be prepared ahead of time or were simple to throw together when I could grab a few minutes, while still basing my meals around items that are already in my cupboards.


Oatmeal and apples
Yogurt, berry, and granola parfaits
Poached eggs and toast
Toast and fruit
Leftover Oatmeal Bars


Vegetarian Meatballs (doubled for later in the week) for Divine Meatball Sandwiches, Cole slaw
Meatloaf, mashed potatoes, green beans
Tuna Sandwiches, veggies and dip
Leftover Night

For more great menu plans go see

Hey Gayle, I've noticed that a lot of the breakfast baking recipes you link to are really high in sugar--those apple enchiladas have a whole cupful in addition to the pie filling. Do you usually cut back on the sweetener?

I made the Triple Threat bars this afternoon--with margarine instead of butter (it's what I had) and sunflower seeds instead of nuts. Thumbs up from my kids--although again I did find them pretty sweet.

That's a good question. I very rarely follow a recipe exactly. I sneak in flax, oil substitues, shredded veggies, less sugar, powdered milk, all kinds of stuff, leftovers...all kinds of stuff. So yes, when a fat or sugar content is high, I usually modify the recipe to make it healthier.
