Menu Plan Monday - April 23, 2012

It's been a big weekend around here - My Little Man turned 5!  We've had a house full of company and special birthday foods, and with the freezer still quite full as summer approaches, it's time to make room for fresh summer produce.  For the next few weeks, we'll be eating our way through our own pantry and freezer challenge in preparation for fresh produce.  I can't wait!


- Perfectly Pumpkin Pancakes

- Fruit Parfaits with Cinnamon Almond Granola
- Spinach Quiche

Lunches will be our usual assortment of leftovers or sandwiches with cheese or yogurt and sliced veggies or fruit.

- Tomato soup and grilled cheese/turkey sandwiches

- Spaghetti with Easy Bolognese and steamed broccoli
- Turkey enchiladas with black beans, spinach, and pineapple
- Family dinner out
- Black bean burgers, roasted carrots, fresh fruit
- Fish filets, baked potatoes, green beans
- Grab it and Growl

We still have ice cream and peanut butter birthday cake left over for dessert, so I won't be doing any baking in the next few days.  Besides, between Easter and the birthday, I think we need a sugar break!

What are you cooking up this week?

  1. That cake looks so awesome! Our pastor's son has a big thing with volcanoes since we played with baking soda and vinegar. I think I may have to attempt a cake like this for him.

    1. Thanks! It was fun to make. I'm planning a how-to post later this week. :-)
