Menu Plan

An unexpected business trip for my husband and a crazy school schedule turned last week’s menu plan upside down, we didn’t make any of the scheduled meals!  There were a few nights of leftovers, make whatever you want, and even a cereal night! This week things should be back to normal, well as normal as things are around here.

My menu looks almost the same as last week’s menu, with the addition of homemade pasta. I could not believe how easy it was to make my own pasta! I can’t wait to experiment with whole wheat flour and other options! You can enter to win a pasta machine from Bertolli on my giveaway post.

Here is an interesting cooking tip that you might already know. My husband was making waffles this weekend and he used my pancake recipe instead of the waffle recipe. He added 1/3 cup of oil to the recipe and they turned out delicious! I am sure you could modify any pancake recipe with the addition of oil to make great waffles!

  1. I have one recipe that I use for pancakes and for waffles. I don’t really change anything except I make the pancake batter a little thinner than the waffle batter. Interesting.

  2. Looks like a yummy week! A friend shared their Southwestern Chicken and Rice recipe and it looks very similar to your Mexican Chicken Skillet. Yum!

  3. Your pizza crust looks really good. We are planning on having pizza or calzones this week. I might have to give your recipe a try!

  4. I love homemade pasta — delicious. Glad you guys do too.

  5. yum! Your whole menu looks great!

  6. I am going to have to try your pizza crust recipe. Mine is always soggy and I have been looking for a good one, especially own with whole wheat flour.

  7. Making pasta is something I have yet to try, but I wouldn’t mind trying. 😀 Great looking menu!

    Have a great week!

  8. I made your crockpot sloppy joes yesterday! Delicious and easy! And I felt better about serving it than a can of manwich 🙂 Thanks so much for your website. I love it!!!
