Hello people out there who read this. (Translation: hello Mama and my sister.)
It is Monday... again. Although today, despite my exhaustion, I feel quite motivated. I think I work the opposite of everyone else on the planet. When I am super tired I seem super productive. I think it's because I know if I stop moving I will keel over... like a shark.
So once again I am joining in with the masses at OrgJunkie for a little Meal Plan Monday. I hated this at first, but it turns out to be super helpful. It is the one thing organized at my house (that and the cloth diapers).
Let's get started, shall we. I am trying all new recipes this week and will post them here at some point. When I get around to it. I make no promises. I would like to tell myself I invented some of these. But Google tells me I didn't.
Monday- Beef Biscuits by request from Beardface.
There will be a side of brocoli slaw salad.
Tuesday- Sweet and Sour meat ball sliders with a side of snow peas.
Wednesday- Red beans and quinoa - like red beans and rice but with quinoa (like that needed explanation).
Thursday- Turkey Meat Ball Gyro Lettuce wraps with Tzatziki Sauce. I am going to be using this recipe for the sauce made by Betsy over at Romance on a Dime. (Note: If you haven't checked her out on Take it On Tuesday please do. It's so much fun and she always has really great ideas.)
Friday- Respun Tilapia Tacos. I am putting a new spin on this recipe.
Canning and freezing? Stay with me here.
Do you love ravioli? I do. It's like a treat of a pasta. It's like a teeny, tiny piece of lasagna that I didn't have to make myself.
I made this recipe last year and my husband cheered. (Note: I made it with tortileni.) It combines tiny ravioli, Italian Dressing, sausage and roasted tomatoes. Click here for the recipe.
Saturday Beardface and I went on a date. On our way home we stopped in a local cupcake shop and picked up a cupcake. I got a blueberry. It was delicous, but I kept thinking as I ate it, "I could make this." And I did.
Don't get me wrong, I like the bakery, it's good to support a local business. But I can make a dozen cupcakes for under $5 and paying $2.25 for one cupcake is just silly. I just did the math and it cost me $8.12 to make 18 cupcakes. So that's around $.45 per cupcake. (That's 5 cupcakes for the price of one at the bakery.)
Here is the recipe. If you make something you found on this website feel free to share. I would love to link back to your blog.
