Menu Plan Monday

My oldest started drivers ed last week. Such an amazing time of change but boy am I feeling the numbered days of my child becoming an adult. These years are flying by and I truly only have 2-3 years before it's possible he might fly the coop. With Drivers Ed three nights a a nearby town...I'm getting lots of study time in while I wait, but it leaves me with the need to have quick dinners to prepare when I get home. I also found some leftover garden rhubarb in the freezer so I'm making breakfast muffins this week. So here's what's cooking this week.

Breakfasts: (choice of...)

Chocolate Chip Freezer Pancakes, Rhubarb Muffins, eggs, or yogurt and fruit smoothies


Whole Wheat Penne with Sun dried Tomatoes
Vegetable Barley Soup and Bread Machine Rolls
Broccoli Quiche in Potato Crust
Chicken Quesadillas
Chicken with Pineapple Sauce over brown rice
Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup
Leftover Buffet (AKA clean out the fridge)

Check back tomorrow for the big Grocery Shop.

Hey Gayle, I'd like to give menu planning a more serious try. Seems like a while back you addressed the subject of "how-to-plan-your-menu-before-shopping-without-knowing-what-you'll-find-on-sale" - could you PRETTY PLEASE point me in the direction of that post? Thanks for everything you share with us!!

Oh, I just used up the last of the rhubarb in my freezer (that I bring from MN to TN since it doesn't grow well here). Those Rhubarb muffins sound great! I'll have to try them sometime (I guess next summer after we go to MN again!)

The potato crust on the quiche sounds interesting. It has a lot less calories than a pie crust. I think I am going to try it with a pot pie and see if it works!
