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.


Breakfasts~

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 :)

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. :)
