Menu Plan Monday 1/18/2016

Lawton Park greenhouse succulents


So, I know it’s a little odd to start off Menu Plan Monday with a photo from a greenhouse. But, Saturday was the January meeting of the bonsai club that daughter #3 and I belong to. That meeting is always at the huge local greenhouse that houses plants for the botanical gardens, zoo, etc. It is so nice to be in the warm buildings and see all the green before heading back out into the gray that is midwestern winter. So, I hope you enjoy the photo (taken in the area with succulents) as much as I enjoyed being there!

It is very cold here, and I made these delicious cinnamon rolls for breakfast over the weekend. There is pudding in the mix, which keeps them moist. It makes a lot, but we are not having any trouble disposing of them. Recommended.

Here’s the plan for this week:

Monday: make your own pizza — I make the dough, then each family members puts toppings of choice onto individual pizzas

Tuesday: One Pot Spaghetti Marinara — new recipe to me; torn from a magazine I get.

Wednesday: Cheesy Tater Tot Casserole — a favorite, and perfect for the night I don’t finish teaching until 6.

Duggar tater tot casserole

Thursday: lasagna — this is similar to my recipe, although I’ll have to cut down on the onion and eliminate the mushrooms, due to … ahem … family members. I bought a bag of spinach last week and this will be a good use for some of it.

Friday: fish night — some type of fish, probably with green beans and mashed potatoes.

What’s new in your kitchen or in your life this week? Stay warm and join in with a comment 🙂

  1. These meals all sound very good to me! Yes, when you have enough food extra, I will love to get a single serving of anything. Thanks for the offer since Joe has already been in the hospital for 10 days now with another 3 days to go, if all goes well. Loved the greenhouse picture with those blooming flowers on some of the plants! Joe and I both like to visit greenhouses, although we usually end up buying plants at Lowe’s or Menard’s most years in the spring to save time and for the lower prices.

  2. I am busy making curtains for a teacher friend’s nine classroom windows. Life goes on in other areas, too. Last night I cut up cabbage in my food processor. I’ll make dressing for it later this morning and begin eating it tonight. It’s Lees’ recipe and I simply LOVE it!
