Menu plan for the week

Wow! Already Monday night... time to get the menu plan for the rest of the week figured out. :) I loved following one the last couple of weeks.

For dinner tonight we had one of Rosalind's favorites. Black-eyed peas over rice. While she "helped" me prepare dinner she must have consumed at least a full serving of peas before I finally made her save a "bit" of appetite for later.

It's such an easy dinner to throw together after a busy day.

Combine and simmer for 15-20 minutes.

1/2 pound black-eyed peas, soaked and cooked
A can of diced tomatoes
1/4 pound of sausage
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp cumin

Serve over rice with cornbread and a glass of milk.


Cereal with dried fruit
Eggs, hash browns and toast
Banana bread with smoothies
Homemade yogurt and granola
Sausage egg casserole
Blueberry pancakes

Dinners for the rest of the week~

Tuesday- Chicken broccoli casserole (in the freezer) with salad

Wednesday- Tacos with home made tortillas-yum!

Thursday- Spaghetti with french bread and salad

Friday- Hamburger gravy over mashed potatoes with steamed veggies

Saturday- Going to my first college football game -- so something easy like nachos before we head out.

Sunday- Chicken pot pie

I think I'll be trying you're black-eyed peas next week!

The black-eyed peas look delish! I need to add more dried bean recipes to my repertoire. I think it is a rite of passage as a law school wife!

Hi Anna :) I found your blog by way of Gayle's grocerycartchallenge. I enjoyed reading some, and was excited to see that you make homemade tortillas, too! I just made some a few weeks ago, and they are great :)

Anna said...

Hope you enjoy them Mandy- we sure do.

"Our rite of passage"- lol! True though. :)

Thanks Miriam! We were over at a friend's house for tacos a couple months ago and right before dinner our hostess put a plate of fresh hot tortillas on the table. I always thought it took hours, and was thrilled to discover just how wrong I had been. :)
