Menu Plan Monday – 1/24/11 to 1/30/11

Make a Menu

Every week I sit down and peruse several different websites, my cookbooks, and my handwritten tried and true recipes to make healthy meals for my family of five. I tend to use what I find as a base and add my own twist to each recipe, hoping to come up with my own tasty concoction to use over and over again.

Here is this weeks menu:

Monday – Spaghetti N Meatballs

Tuesday – Polish Sausage and Cabbage Soup

Wednesday – Heavenly Chicken Lasagna

ThursdayMexican Shepherd’s Pie Leftovers

Friday – French Bread Pizza

Saturday – Leftovers

Sunday – Leftovers

You can find all the recipes, and photos for my meals here on my blog, and you can see my full menu plan here on this calendar.

Zucchini bread is not only delicious, but very easy to make. Below is the base recipe for two loaves, but I always at least double this and freeze my loaves to eat later or share with friends. I have step by step photos to add to this post… I just have to find them FOUND – LOL!
