Menu Plan Monday ~ April 11th

Well, we've been passing around a stubborn sinus cold for a week now. The kids seem to be on the upswing but I keep getting slammed with sinus headaches. Oh, and did I mention that the pollen is laying it on thick this spring? I hate really dislike allergy season.



Review of Last Week's New Recipes:

The Fried Rice never got made, but is on the schedule for this week.

Our version of Potato-Topped Mini Meatloaves were a huge hit (even though I forgot the gravy). I tweaked a couple different recipes and came up with a slightly sweet meatloaf that I baked in a jumbo muffin tray.

Potato-Topped Sweet Mini Meatloaves


1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup ketchup
1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
2 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 small onion, chopped
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
2 garlic cloves, minced
3/4 cup Italian Flavored bread crumbs



Makes 6 jumbo muffins (12 regular muffins).


1. Combine all ingredients.
2. Press into greased muffin trays.
3. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes plus an additional 10 minutes covered with foil. 
4. Invert onto cookie sheet then use spatula to transfer to plates. Topped with prepared hot mashed potatoes. 


Very good. Tim's favorite meatloaf recipe yet! 


We loved the Peanut Butter Pancake recipe. I substituted homemade kefir for the 1 cup of milk and added 6 Tablespoons skim milk. We also used coconut oil and Turbinado sugar. I meant to get pictures of these pancakes, but we ate them so quickly that I completely forgot (until it was too late). These will definitely be making their way to our meal plan again.
