Menu Plan Monday May 16-21

Menu Plan Monday

If you saw my post from a couple of days ago, you know C was sick. By Friday night he seemed back to normal, and we had a blissful few hours Saturday morning where the boys both felt great and had a lot of fun playing together.

In case it isn’t obvious, you’re looking at two bona fide superheroes in the photo above. J has on Toy Story Socks, Lightning McQueen jammies, a cape, a bucket, and some freebie sunglasses I brought home from a conference. C decided he wanted to be a superhero too, so he’s got on a smushed cowboy hat, Lightning McQueen shades, his favorite blankie/cape, and an M&M fan/”light saber.” Love my little superheroes!

So, after a few hours of playing… J got sick. He’s still running a fever now and is just as pitiful as C was. I hate seeing my kids sick! They are really missing playing together, too. Hopefully he’ll feel better tomorrow! We were really thankful for Netflix today – he was stuck in our bed but at least he enjoyed a steady stream of entertainment!

Our menu plan has changed now that J’s still sick – Brian and I were supposed to have a date night tomorrow night, but that’ll be postponed to another night.

Monday: Breakfast in a biscuit – one of our favorite modes of breakfast! Cook scrambled eggs and sausage or bacon in separate pans, leaving the eggs slightly runny since they’ll cook more in the oven.Take biscuit dough and press one biscuit into each section of a greased muffin tin, spreading it thin and up around the sides. Pile crumbled sausage or bacon about 1/3 of the way in the biscuit, then top with scrambled eggs. Bake following directions from the biscuit packaging, and about 5 minutes before the timer goes off, top with shredded cheese.  If you want to dress them up a little, sprinkle some chopped parsley on top before serving.

Tuesday: I’m trying a new recipe for chicken tenders from Betty Crocker & Bisquick, and potato wedges from, along with my favorite cooked carrot recipe.

Wednesday: I’m trying two of the Pioneer Woman’s recipes – White Enchiladas and Mexican Rice. We’ve loved every recipe of hers we’ve tried, and these sound SO good… hoping they are!

Thursday: Leftovers!

Friday: I think pizza is always the perfect choice for a Friday, don’t you? :)

Speaking of food, my Burger King gift card giveaway ends tonight – and there are FOUR winners!

Have a happy & healthy week, everyone!
