Menu Plan Monday March 24-28


This is another week of quick, easy and healthy meals. My husband’s surgery went well, but he is in bed most of the day and I am trying to fix him healthy meals to help him heal quickly. I have started my weekly bread baking routine and it is going great. I plan to bake all our bread for the week on Monday. I am also very excited because we will be going out of town this weekend!

Update: I will try and get some more of the recipes on the blog today…


pancakes, waffles, French toast, oatmeal, cold cereal


sandwiches, muffins, fruit, veggies, cheese & crackers


Monday- potato soup, fresh bread, veggies (to be determined)

Tuesday – salmon turnovers (recipe below), carrots, peas, salad, applesauce

Wednesday– bean tacos, corn, rice

Thursday- mac and cheese with veggies for the kids, dinner out for grown-ups

Friday- whole wheat pizza

Here are some super foods I plan on fixing for my husband this week. Blueberry w/w pancakes, sweet potatoes, whole grain muffins, spinach salad, beans and rice, smoothies.

Salmon Turnovers- (makes 8 turnovers)


2 cans boneless salmon

6 oz cream cheese

1 bunch green onion chopped

1 celery stalk chopped

2 tubes crescent rolls ( I use the low fat kind)

Leave out cream cheese to soften

Cook onions and celery in about a tablespoon of butter on the stove top for 3 to 5 minutes

Mix together cooked onions, celery, cream cheese and salmon (drained)

Take the crescent rolls and put two together to make a square, put a scoop (about 1/3 cup) of the mixture in the center of the square, then fold up the corners towards the center.

Bake for about 10 to 15 minutes in a 375 degree oven.

This a great recipe for a quick meal. It takes about 30 minutes from start to finish, and is easy enough for a kid to make.
