This Week's Menu Plan

Last week we had some great meals here in our home. I hope yours were tasty too! A new thing for us was planning out breakfasts instead of eating boxed cereals. This was a great success for us. All but one day we had homemade breakfasts...eggs, pancakes, granola and muffins. We did run out of steam this morning, so we ate some of the cereal we still have leftover, but that just shows me we need to plan something easier on Sundays before church.
Some of the menu highlights from last week were the apple granola , a new taco seasoning recipe , delicious strawberry rhubarb muffins and yummy broccoli on the grill. Stop back later this week for the muffin and broccoli recipes.
This week's plan was easy! I planned for two weeks last week, so we're all set for our meals this week. We're trying several new recipes, so I will plan on sharing them once I know that they are as tasty as they seem. For this week:
D- yummy leftovers from last week...tacos!
B- Scrambled Eggs with veggies
D- dinner at my grandma's house
B- Strawberry Rhubarb Muffins
D- Cheesy Mushroom and Broccoli Hotdish (new recipe)
D- Macaroni and Cheese (we didn't get to make this last week due to a change in plans)
D- Steaks on the grill
B- Potato Pancakes (new recipe)
D- Homemade Chicken Nuggets and Fries (new recipes)
B- Apple Squares (new recipe)
D- Cheeseburgers, Grilled Potatoes and Asparagus, Whole Wheat Hamburger Buns
I got a lot of good ideas from you last week for breakfast options...thanks!
This week, I'm wondering if you have any easy and healthy side dish ideas that pair well with steak. We recently purchased beef from a farmer. My husband's family all went in on a whole cow and now we have WAY more steaks than we're used to. My husband is just giddy about all this steak and I want to make sure we have other great foods to go with all this beef. Any ideas you have would be much appreciated!
As always, head over to I'm an Organizing Junkie for hundreds of menu plans and recipes.


  1. Thanks for the link! Apple granola sounds delicious.

  2. Baked sweet potatoes are our favorite accompaniment for grilled steak....throw them on the grill just as you would a baked potato (scrubbed, pierced with a fork a few times, and we wrap in foil). But we'll also throw any raw veggies in a foil packet with a tiny bit of olive oil and tiny pinch of salt...asparagus, zucchini, green beans, etc. It's all so good!

  3. potato pancakes sound really yummy! yea for new breakfast ideas.

  4. I hadn't thought of grilling sweet potatoes...what a great idea!

  5. I was going to suggest roasting veggies too! I do them on the grill or in the oven.

    My son won't eat potatoes (crazy kid!), but I've been tried a couple of corn potato mash recipes for the rest of us- and cut out (or down) the butter or oil.


Thanks for leaving a comment! I would love to hear your thoughts.
