Welcome to Menu Plan Monday, post-Alaska. Last week I began posting about our trip, and I’ll continue that in the weeks to come. Are you planning a vacation this summer? If so, let me know where you’ve visited in the comments. I know frequent commenter Peg was up here in Indiana and Ohio recently!
This looks like a fairly quiet week, which is great because 1)I’m still getting back to normal from the trip, and 2)4-H and the fair will be here soon, and we need some time to work on that. Daughter #3 makes yeast rolls with a whole grain mixture this year, and we’ve tried 4 recipes. She’ll re-try one that may be a fair contender this week. The first time, we used flax seeds, and they had a pretty … healthy texture. Then I noted that the recipe actually called for flaxseed meal. Bought that last week, and we’ll try them again …
Here’s the week’s menu plan:
Monday: Stewed lentils, barley, and vegetables — this is from an older “homemade” cookbook I made of favorites, and I can’t find the recipe online, but this one looks similar. I would like to make more salads and cool things for summer meals, but I’m not sure anyone in my family other than me would eat them, so — hot stuff it is! At least I can add in plenty of garden fare!
Tuesday: Southwestern Turkey Meatloaf — a favorite here.
Wednesday: Calico Beans is Dad’s request for his birthday … maybe daughter #3’s rolls too … strawberry pie for dessert
Thursday: Chicken and Chickpea Stew — torn from a recent magazine; new recipe
Friday: Skillet Taco Pie — another one from the old cookbook
