Menu Plan Monday

I'm out of town for a few days this week so I have a couple meals off. When I took stock of my fridge and freezer before making my menu plan, I found some hamburger, tilapia from last week that I never used (had scrambled eggs instead) canned tuna, a small chunk of ham, and lots of homemade stock in my freezer, so my menu plan is based around those things. Here's what's cooking.


Leftover pancakes from the freezer
Yogurt, granola and blueberry parfaits
fruit and hard boiled eggs (quick breakfast before I hit the road)
Husband cooking while I'm gone
fruit and hard boiled eggs (another quick breakfast before co-op)
French toast
Easy baked ham and eggs


Grilled Tuna and Cheese, green salad
Homemade chicken noodle soup and cheese toast
Crockpot Roast Chicken, green beans and canned peaches
Husband is cooking while I'm gone
Garlic Tilapia, steamed broccoli
Taco Salad
Leftover Buffet Night

I've been inspired by all your cleaning recipes to try at home. I was just wondering if you have ever tried to make your own dishwasher detergent. I saw a recipe using the same stuff you use to make your laundry detergent. equal parts borax and washing soap. 1 tablespoon of each. plus they used white vinger in the rinse aid compartment.

I've tried at least 5 homemade dish washing detergent recipes and they ALL leave a film on my dishes. I do use the white vinegar in my rinse compartment on a regular basis but I'm still using the store bought detergent.

Your Crock Pot Chicken is my all time favorite recipe for roasted chicken...I did try wrapping some potatoes in tin foil and perching the bird on top and it turned out really really good too. And the potatoes were fantastic! I had enough to make baked potatoes for supper and then I turned the leftovers into Twice Baked Potatoes. Yum! Thanks for sharing all your tips!
