Menu Plan Monday!!!

This week's menu is simple because hubby is still gone until Sunday. The kids have enjoyed all these Breakfasts for Dinner and their favorite meals, me on the other hand, enjoyed it but I'm more than ready to start cooking again.....I miss my stove!!!!

If you want to share your own menu, be sure to drop by Laura at "I'm an Organizing Junkie" and add your name to the list, there's tons of other wonderful ladies sharing their family menus too, I'm sure you could get some great ideas :)

As always, if there is a specific recipe you would like to see, just let me know and I'll post it :)

I'm going to post the recipe for the Strawberry Stuffed French Toast. It's one that my family loves and it's super easy to make.

8 oz cream cheese, room temperature
3/4 cup strawberry jam
1/4 cup chopped pecans
French or Italian bread

4 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1 Tbsp vanilla
(beat together)

Mix cream cheese, jam and nuts. Cut Italian or French bread into diagonal pieces about 1 inch thick. Cut pocket in each slice. Stuff with mixture. Dip into batter, coating both sides. With skillet on medium heat, brown both sides in margarine.

  6. Hi Sandra,
    I am a "lurker" out here in blogland thinking about starting my own blog. I have been reading your family blog because you are stationed here in Idaho and I thought it was fun to read about someone that is here in Idaho. Anyway I was looking over your menu for this week and it sounds delicious. The one meal I was interested in is the sausage and rice dish. Can you post the recipe for that please. It sounds wonderful and I would love to try it. Thanks for all the wonderful recipes you do post. I think I may have to start a little recipe book with all of them. :) Have a great day.

  7. Sandra, I think I've died and gone to heaven. I wanted to jump through my computer and have a taste or the whole plate (he he) of that french toast...oh my word. Laura

  8. Wow, you really got me with that picture of the stuffed french toast! I wish I had some right now :)

    You're still cooking an awful lot with your hubby gone! I'd like to come over and eat some of that homemade bbq chicken pizza, or you could just email me a slice!

    Have a great day, and a terrific week Sandra!!!

  9. I love the look of the strawberry french toast. I would love to make this for my family.

  10. I am so enjoying your blog, what a find! I have kept it open for the past three days scrolling through all of your entries and saving the recipes lol.

    I was wondering, how do you edit that weekly planner chart? I went to the link at the bottom (organizedhome) and downloaded the PDF but what do you need to do to be able to edit it in order to fill it out with your menu? I would much rather keep mine on the computer than print it out and even use it in my blog the same way but I can't figure it out.
