Menu Plan Monday

Menu Plan Monday!!

This week I work evenings Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. So with my menu planning you'll notice my big meals I'm making at lunch, which my husband will eat for supper, and my supper plan is something quick and easy to take to work with me. Wednesday I'm also having company over so we are planning something easy to make for lots of people and pleasers for all the kids (at least 4).

Breakfast -- Eggs
Lunch -- Shepard's Pie
Dinner -- Cold meat sandwich

Breakfast -- Cereal
Lunch -- Mini Meatloaf
Dinner -- Salad with croutons (I'm going to try to make these homemade after using my bread machine to make a loaf of bread)

Breakfast -- Fireman's breakfast
Lunch -- Waffles (I have shared the recipe for our favorite waffles below)
Dinner -- Hamburgers and hot dogs

Breakfast -- Toast
Lunch -- Spaghetti
Dinner -- left overs

Breakfast -- Quiche (we'll see how this goes over)
Lunch -- Leftovers
Dinner -- Salad

Breakfast -- Cereal
Lunch -- French Toast
Dinner -- Egg Salad sandwiches\Cold meat sandwiches

Breakfast -- Donuts\muffins
Lunch -- Eating out with MIL
Dinner -- Fried chicken

I plan my leftovers into my meal plan because it is the only way that things get ate. Otherwise they get forgotten about and then we have to throw food away and this drives me crazy (but I won't get on my soap box right now).

Buttermilk Waffles

3 C. flour
1 T baking powder
1 t baking soda
1 T sugar
1\2 t salt
2 eggs beaten
3 C buttermilk
2\3 C shortening

Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and salt in large bowl.

Mix eggs and buttermilk in small bowl and add to dry ingredients.

Add shortening by chipping in small dots at a time. Shortening will make it lumpy.

That is the whole recipe. It makes about 4 batches of 4 waffles each. They are so delicious you might want to make a double batch!!

Happy eating!

God bless,

    Whee! I see that you have shared a waffle recipe. I love making Beligan waffles for my family.
    Thanks to Pinterest and MPM, I'm able to keep inspired when it comes to cooking and baking!
