Menu Plan Monday - Week of March 17, 2013

Irish Oatmeal with Maple Cream and my cup of coffee!  Super Yummy!
We've gotten in a routine with our meals lately and I was hoping to break out a bit this week.  Not so much!  We're still eating super simple since our schedule is still pretty crazy right now (especially with Easter right around the corner!).  I did make homemade Energy Bites this week (a recipe I hadn't tried before) and they turned out good so we'll have those in the menu this week!  I'll probably take some in my lunch whenever we're listed as having leftovers since they're easy and quick to eat.

A co-worker of mine has been treating us with really snazzy baked goods lately and when I asked for a recipe for some absolutely delicious cookies she recommended a check out a certain cookbook instead.

So I checked it out from the library this week.

And I've been drooling.

So glad that John just smiles indulgently and lets my imagination run!

We're trying the Maple Cornbread this week from that book and I may have to bake some cookies this week too - just to try out another of the recipes this week.  We'll see how it goes.  I do have lots of ideas for the upcoming weeks, depending on what I can get on sale and what we have in our cupboards.  So you might see some new recipes in the next few weeks as my itchy fingers try out some new-to-us things!  You've been warned! :)
