Guest Menu Plan by Bethany
Bethany Weathersby lives in Woodburn, Oregon, with the other 5 Ws. She’s involved in her church and local homeschool group, enjoys reading and running, avoids crafts, and has a tendency to get crabby when things don’t go as planned. The recipes linked in this post are from her blog, For the Love of Grub, which is basically an online file for great recipes she gets from other people.
I got a screamin’ deal on sweet potatoes, so I worked them into a couple dinners this week. Most of these dinners are simple to prepare, which makes them perfect for a busy week. Not that any of you would ever have a busy week. Right?
Here’s what’s for dinner at my house this week:
Tuesday — We have Taco Tuesday on the menu each week. Occasionally it gets bumped to another day, but it’s one mindless dinner to add to my weekly menu and everyone loves it. We use meat with Homemade Taco Seasoning and the Best Refried Beans in the world, plus other standard toppings. The meat gets pulled from the freezer because I make enough for a month at a time and the beans, which are made in the Crockpot, are either fresh or pulled from the freezer.
Wednesday — Chicken and Roasted Vegetable Soup, Buttermilk Biscuits with Chives and Black Pepper (These may be my favorite biscuits in the whole wide world, though I only tend to make them when I have chives growing in my yard.)
Thursday — Creamed Eggs over toasted English muffins (This simple comfort food can be made as is or dressed up with other seasonings, but it’s good either way.), Fruit & Spinach Smoothies
Saturday — Creamy Shells with Broccoli and Ham (I use waaaay more broccoli than is called for when I make this.), tomato and cucumber slices
Sunday — Leftovers (I make a deliberate effort to take Sundays off to just rest, so cooking is never on the menu.)
