Weekly Menu

Here's what we're aiming for, at least.

Waffles- a pregnant lady's favorite way to start the day- topped with peanut butter, blueberries, and maple syrup. Swoon.

Whole-Wheat Buttermilk Pancakes-a big batch for the freezer for fast breakfasts

Almost-Nutri-Grain Bars

Macaroni and Beef (for freezer)

Old-Fashioned Cheeseburgers with Oven Shoestring Fries

Red Beans and Rice with smoked sausage and cornbread

Tex-Mex Pork- this one is definitely a keeper. Quick, easy and delicious.

Cheese Pizzas


  1. You are an ambitious and busy lady :-). I hope it all gets done and you have enough energy left to enjoy the rest of the day. Have a great weekend. Blessings...Mary

  2. Do you have a mandolin (sp?) that you cut fries and chips with, or do you just use a knife or food processor? I've been told that to get a good mandolin, you have to go really expensive or its not worth it. Kate said she uses her food processor with the slicing blade. Your thoughts?

  3. Hey Beth-
    I don't have a food processor, and I recently borrowed a "slicer" from my folks. I guess it's a mandoline of sorts, and I know it's not expensive or high quality. That being said, I've only used it once, to make the sweet potato chips I posted about, and it worked better than I was expecting. For fries, I always just use my knife, though I haven't tried it out when making these shoestring fries. And to be honest, I nixed burger and fries night and had PW's Comfort Meatballs with Mashed Potatoes instead, so I can't say how easy/difficult it would be to make these fries with a knife.
    Not sure if that helps...
