Menu Plan Monday, September 20th

It’s Monday and time to make a plan for this week’s meals. If you aren’t sure what to make this week, take a peek at what’s cooking at our house this week. I’ve got the full plan and recipe links too below.

Menu plan with recipe links

A couple of weeks ago I got a great deal on petite sirlion steaks. We’ll be eating those as brown sugar steaks this week. They are simple to make and so good either grilled or broiled. To make sure each slice is tender cut it against the grain of the meat and every bite will be tender.

We’ll also be enjoying pizza one night and burritos another. These are both easy dinners to make and everyone in our family loves them.

If you’ve not made pizza at home from scratch give this easy no rise pizza dough recipe a try as well as homemade pizza sauce too.

We have quite a bit of basil in our garden so I’ll make basil wraps this week. And to use up the vegetables in the crisper drawer we’ll be having stir fry.

This is what’s cooking at our house this week…

This whole wheat pancake recipe is easy to make and healthy too. It doesn’t contain eggs or oil. You can make it dairy free by using almond milk or another non dairy milk. It’s a great weekend breakfast but fast enough to be made on a weekday too. Even though these pancakes are made with whole wheat, they are light and fluffy. Come see what the secret is to making them fluffy instead of heavy and dense.
