Menu Monday

Menu for the week of 14 January 2013

Welcome to my weekly menu!

This week is going to be a low-key week for me.  Because my 6-year-old was sick with the flu all last week, I lost a week of working (I don’t work when my kids are home).  Thankfully, I’d had several blog posts already queued, so the blog went without a hitch.  But, the surprise book I want to release on February 14th is really getting to crunch time.  If you wanted a copy of my Budgeting Spreadsheet, make sure you leave a comment in the post.  I also wanted to thank everyone for the amazing responses to With Fear & Trembling.

The “rules” of our household diet can be found in the tab above labeled Hallee’s Galley and further explained in Our Diet.

I usually serve leftovers for lunch the next day, or we’ll save them during the week to graze lunch on the weekends. We try to have a few meals a week vegetarian (see my post on eating meat) and eat fish at least one meal a week.  One meal a week is usually a “Dinner Out” meal.

Almost all of the breads are homemade using fresh milled flour.  I’ll continue to link to my recipes as I post them.  Our daily bread is Whole Wheat Honey Oatmeal Bread.

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of January 14th. As far as desserts go, it’s rainy and cold outside as I type this, so that puts me in the mood for some sort of steamy hot fruit cobbler.  I also made some Apple Fritters Sunday morning for breakfast.  Oh my, they were good. Kaylee has asked me to add them to the standard weekly meal.
