Menu Plan Monday

Now that my town is finally getting some snow, I am looking forward to warm comfort foods with the addition of nutrient dense dark leafy greens and other vitamin- and mineral-rich vegetables. Also on the menu for this week: a few nutritious desserts made with raw honey.

I found a few new cookbooks at the library (one of which is my new favorite), and have adapted a few recipes for this week’s menu. I can’t wait to make and share!

Menu for January 16-22

Menu Plan Monday

Every month, before the 1st, I plan my menu for the entire month. Breakfast, Snacks, Lunch and Dinner. I get all the cookbooks out along with my list of new recipes to try. We then do a once-a-month family shopping trip (to save gas money and time). Then, weekly I plan my meals based on what I have planned for the month, when the avocados soften up, if there are any sales at the local stores, and what the husband’s request is for the week (Actually, I rarely ask that anymore… it’s always Burgers… you will notice we have these a LOT!)

Here is week 1 for March:
