Menu Plan Monday

It's always fun to take some time and flip through the assorted recipes I've clipped from magazines through the years. (I keep mine in a large flip-style photo album, with three slots per page, like for 4x6 pictures. Then you can buy index tabs and create categories). So some of the recipes this week come from ideas I came across while flipping through my collection (it seems like you can find lots of lost recipes on Others come from the latest issue of Simple and Delicious magazine. And others are simply old favorites.

  • Oatmeal with coconut flakes and Craisins
  • Apple Butter muffins (Better Homes and Gardens, 1990--an oldie! Found pretty much the same recipe at, and that is what I'm linking to)
  • Spinach and feta cheese omelets (lightly saute spinach in butter or olive oil, with a little onion if desired. Prepare omelets filled with the spinach and some feta cheese).
  • Greek yogurt with flaxseed, berries, granola
  • Cream of wheat, oranges
  • Whole wheat pancakes, orange juice
*A great list of new, heart healthy breakfast ideas can be found here.) (The recipes are on the right side of the page)


  • Leftover manicotti
  • Pork Roast, Autumn salad, butternut squash, possibly brussel sprouts in butter sauce and possibly apple-walnut crisp
  • Waikiki meatballs over rice, grapes, steamed broccoli
  • Spaghetti, caesar salad, garlic parmesan bread
  • Taco night
  • Homemade pizza night (using my Toastmaster  Bread and Butter Maker with the recipe from Toastmaster Corner Bakery Cook Book
  • Parmesan tilapia, sweet potato fries (have you tried these yet? I sampled the Ore Ida brand at Sam's and they were yummy!), salad
