menu plan monday ~ august 17, 2009

School starts this week, so the menu has to take that, and several meetings and lessons, into account. DD and I are going to make Honey Peanut Butter Cookies this afternoon. I think the protein laden cookies will be nice for a quick it’s-the-first-day-of-school-and-we-need-to-hurry breakfast snack, along with some fresh strawberries and bananas. Later in the week, I plan to make some breakfast muffins (we’ll call them cupcakes to please the youngest member of the family). I haven’t decided which recipe to try. I’ll share that later in the week. Hopefully, I’ll remember to take some pictures…

fridge food

refried beans / sour cream / salsa
Mexican Salad

grilled pork steaks
grilled corn on the cob
grilled potatoes
coleslaw with peanuts and craisins

I plan to make the above potato recipe in foil packets instead of in a foil pan. I can individualize the packets for each of us. That means I can add onion to mine! 🙂

garlic bread
Italian chopped salad

turkey in the crock pot
fruit salad
sauteed zucchini and yellow squash

fridge food

grilled chicken
spinach salad with strawberries
green beans
homemade rolls

homemade vanilla ice cream
Fudgy Coffee Brownies

Today, I need to make a few lists of things that need to be done before the holiday season…a little painting, a little repair, a little this and that. Time is rushing by and these little jobs need to be done. DH and I discussed some of them last evening. Seems there is always a list of some kind, doesn’t it?? And it’s time to think about trying a few new cookie recipes for our annual Christmas open house. Soon, we’ll be doing this ~


If you are wondering what some of the cookies are, click on the picture and it will take you to my flickr site. Scroll over the picture there and you’ll see the labels for some of the cookies.
