Menu Plan

Did you know it’s National Whole Grains Month? We’ve been serious about incorporating whole grains into our diet for about eight years now. While we didn’t have any major health issues before we started eating more whole grains, I can definitely tell a difference in how I feel when we travel and I’m eating more white flour.

Tomorrow I’ll be sharing with you some of my favorite whole grain recipes and tips on baking with whole grains.

Don’t forget, friends of The Happy Housewife on Facebook receive daily breakfast ideas and kitchen tips.

  1. i bookmarked the apricot pork. looks wonderful. id love to know how it turns out as ive made a different version with chicken and it became watery from the condensation from the crockpot. the next time i made it with pork it was too sweet. i hope this recipe works so i can add it to a future menu!

  2. I’m going to feature your French Dip Sandwiches for my “Must Try Monday” recipe later today. My boys were very unsure about it, since it was something new, and they EACH had 2 sandwiches. We LOVED them! They were so awesome! In fact, so good, that I didn’t even think to take a picture. I will be making them again, as we just received half of a steer from a local farmer, so my freezer is WELL stocked with beef! Thanks so much for sharing your recipe. May I use your picture since I didn’t take one?

  3. I can’t wait to see your whole grain recipes! I really enjoy your menu posts and that breakfast foods are included. Getting enough whole grains and fiber is important and I’m always looking for new ways to incorporate them into my day.

  4. The French dip sounds wonderful! Your whole menu looks good.
