Menu Plan Monday - Week of January 11, 2015

Homemade Cinnamon Rolls - Before Frosting, that is!


It's another cold week here in Minnesota - I guess it's cold all over the country!   Brrr.  Either way, I'm thinking of hibernating until spring!  Warm food is the key here this week.  We've been drinking a lot of hot chocolate, coffee and tea around here.

John has meetings or events at church Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday this week so I asked the kids what they wanted and they voted on pizza twists and chicken noodle soup.  My go-to on Wednesday nights when John has Confirmation at church is waffles - then I can make an extra batch and freeze them for later!  So that's the game-plan on Wednesday night this week.  The kids have gotten into scrambled eggs lately so that's an inexpensive, easy breakfast that we all enjoy now.  I like that!  Not to mention some protein is good for breakfast...I like that!

Here's what we're eating:

   Lunch: Soup from the Freezer, Tuan and Veggie Sandwiches

   Dinner: Homemade Pizza and Breadsticks

We still have a lot of soup in the freezer from December and we're trying to eat through that.  I also have three turkey carcasses and a ham bone that I want to make soup with some time soon.  I do need to empty and defrost the freezer before summer rolls around again.  Right now that seems so far away but I know it will come quickly!  I made a huge batch of granola this past week so if I get really stuck for snacks, I will serve that with yogurt that I have in the fridge. 

What are you eating this week?

  1. We are eating corn chowder -- our warm soup on these cold nights. Chili was on the menu last week. Pork chops and applesauce, and probably garlic spaghetti on the night we all have meetings.
