Menu Plan Monday, May 28th

Happy Memorial Day! Take the time to remember those who have given so much to ensure our freedom today.

And enjoy time with your family and get them to help you make your meal plan if it’s not done yet.

It’s hard to come up with dinner ideas, week after week and not get stuck eating the same old thing.

You can combat the dinner rut by making a plan and adding new recipes in as you find them.

I make it a point to make a new recipe once a month. If we love it, it goes into the rotation. If not we don’t have it again.

I also have a list of meals that we eat during the different seasons of the year. I don’t want to plan to roast a chicken in the middle of a 90-degree day. I also don’t want to plan salads in the middle of winter.

Having meal idea for each season can help keep you from getting stuck in the dinner rut.

If you need ideas for this week, here’s what’s cooking at our house…



Making hamburger at home not only saves money but they taste so much better too.

Hamburgers, Macaroni Salad, Fruit and Dessert

Cashew Chicken Stir Fry with Rice

Pan Fried Pork Chops, Baked Potato and Salad

Spaghetti, Salad, and French Bread

Pineapple Chicken, Rice and Stir Fry Vegetables

Chicken Fajitas, Beans, Salas and Chips

Ham Slices (from the freezer), Mashed Potatoes and Salad



Leftovers most days

Grilled Sandwiches and chips

BLT Salad and Fruit

This is an easy and delicious baked donuts recipe. Who wouldn’t love double chocolate donuts that are baked to help keep the fat down? Better yet, these are also dairy free donuts too. You’ll have to see how easy these are to make. If you can measure and stir you can make them too.

Toast made from homemade bread and Eggs

Muffins, Sausage, Eggs, and Fruit

Dairy Free Chocolate Donuts  Sausage, and Eggs

  1. Wow, those double chocolate donuts look good! I don’t have a donut pan but I may have to try them in a muffin pan and soon 🙂

  2. I’m going to make vegetarian chili this week using a different recipe that we have in the past, so we’ll see how that it turns out. 🙂

    The chocolate donuts do look good! I’ve been thinking about getting a pan to bake donuts at home as a special treat for my kids.

    1. My in-laws gave me the donut pan and it works great for baking donuts. I would recommend purchasing two so you don’t have to bake them in so many batches.
      I hope your vegetarian chili turns out good this week. Our weather has been a little chilly the last two days so chili sounds really good. 🙂
