So, today starts the weekly menu planning. I will post all of my meals here, and then daily I will post the recipes. I decided to do it this way because I found there wasn't enough time to try to get all my recipes done in one day. And, I think I am going to try 1 new thing a week. I want/need to expand my cooking abilities, so this is me saying it because I am more likely to do it if I actually say it out loud.
So without further adieu, here is my weekly menu:
For breakfasts, we usually do oatmeal, cereal, or eggs&toast. Lunches are sandwiches (pb&j--yeah!), or leftovers.
Tonight - Marinated pork chops, smashed potatoes, and biscuits made from some bisquick I need to use up
Friday - Grilled salmon (with some kind of glaze, not sure what yet) and veggies
Saturday - chicken noodle veggie soup
Sunday - leftovers
Monday-Homemade chicken pot pie (recipe to come)
Tuesday - Spaghetti with somewhat homemade sauce (recipe to come) and more biscuits
Wednesday - tilapia quesadillas
Thursday- fresh snapper, sweet peas and steamed carrots
The new thing I am going to try this week is attempting to bake my own french bread. The Frugal Girl has inspired me to start baking my own rolls and some breads. I want to move us away from eating breads that have bleached flour and lots of preservatives in them. Although I have to admit that I am a little intimidated about this. Baking bread is an art that takes a lot of refining to get it right. Eeeek! I'll let the blog world know how it turns out!
