Meal Plan: February 8-12
This week I am not falling back on anything. This week everything coming out of my kitchen is a meal that I have never prepared before. The reason for this~ I really truly want to learn more about cooking and baking. I want to be a good cook. And, I want to teach my kiddos about simple good food.
Hopefully, at the end of this week I will not have too many flops. Fingers crossed, aprons tied!
Here is the experimental meal plan. This introduces two new types of whole grains to our family. We took a trip to the Whole Foods Market and came back with bags of bulk grains. Our pantry looks beautiful. It actually looks healthy as red, brown, and cream colored grains sit waiting to boost our families nutrition through the roof. I love it. I keep going and staring into my pantry. Grains. Grains. Grains. Oreos. Grains. Oosps...how did that get in there?
Monday: Vegetable Barley Soup
Tuesday: Drip Beef Sandwiches
Wednesday: Quisidellas, Quinoa and Blackbeans
Thursday: Red Beans and Rice
Friday: Chicken and Dumplings
Bonus just because I had to: Sweet Potato and Apple Cake!
