Menu Plan Monday - fifth edition!
This is a hurried menu this week - I'd hope to get the month done all today but it just wasn't happening! We didn't eat everything according to menu this week, the weather wasn't all that cooperative (it rained and rained and then it SNOWED) so I adapted a few things to make the menu less summery and more "seasonal" to go along with the snow!
I'm not as detailed this week as TroubleMaker is on a 'sleeping strike' and I can't get him to go to bed so I'm trying to get this posted at least before I head to bed with him so we can both catch up on some missed sleep!
Here are our dinners at a glance!
Monday: Baked Tortellini w/ homemade meat sauce
Tuesday: Stir Fry veggies and stir fry rice (from May 30)
Wednesday: Chili & buns (from May 28)
Thursday: Farmer's Breakfast (recipe below)
Friday: Two step honey dijon chicken (from May ??)
Saturday: Birthday BBQ at my Dad's to celebrate my brother's 40th!
Sunday: Crockpot ham & scalloped potatoes (from early May)
Crackers & Cheese, Cottage cheese, leftovers, yogurt, cereal bar
Breakfasts: Eggos (Frozen pancakes), Banana muffins & cheese cubes, toast, bagels & cream cheese, cheese toast
I hope to do a few more posts this week - last week was just one of those weeks! Enjoy and look for more great menu planning ideas, check out Org Junkie!
Farmer's Breakfast (this is slight adaptation of an old family favourite)
500g hash browns
6 to 8 eggs
1/2 to 1 pound bacon
1 large onion, diced
1 green pepper, diced
other things (broccoli, mushrooms)!
Chop bacon and saute until mostly cooked, add chopped onions and green peppers (and mushrooms if desired), saute until soft. Add hash browns and season to taste with parsley, season salt, onion & garlic powder, & pepper. Once the hash browns are cooked through and lightly browned, (if adding broc, add now) crack and beat eggs in a bowl with some milk. Add to hash browns and mix through. cook until set.
Serve topped with shredded cheddar cheese.
