Menu Plan Monday, Week of August 24

If you want to see previous menus you can go here. Still haven't had Wendy's Quick pasta and lentils so I am putting it on the menu for the third week. I think we may get to it this week. As always I will serve a fresh veggie (or one I have frozen) and usually some type of fruit with our meals.

Breakfast meals:

Yogurt and peanut butter toast (I usually mix in a banana or blueberries in our plain yogurt)
Homemade whole wheat waffles (from the Betty Crocker cookbook)
Amish Baked oatmeal
Eggs and toast (I usually put carrots, green pepper and onion in my mini food processor and saute them in butter and then stir in my eggs)
Freezer Smoothies

Lunch meals:

English muffin pizzas, carrots
Peanut butter and jelly and apples
Chicken Nuggets and a simple salad
Sandwiches and carrots
Cheese quesadillas with some veggies mixed in

Dinner meals:

Asian Crock Pot - I don't have any orange juice so I'm using apple juice and serving over rice.
Wendy's Quick pasta and lentils
Springfield Cashew Chicken - going to try this recipe again; I know to stir fry type meals in one week.
Lemon pepper chicken on the grill, mashed potatoes and corn
And as usual - Homemade Pepperoni pizza, or Alfredo pizza or Pepperoni calzones

Snacks that I am going to make for this week are from Laura at Heavenly Homemaker's series on "Getting Real With Food":

Homemade Soft Pretzels
Breakfast Cookies
Applesauce Bread

I may have mentioned this before, but we usually eat leftovers one night and we usually have an easy night of sandwiches or possibly a freezer meal or we may go out to eat.
