Pinterest + Me =Our Menu Plan

Do you make a weekly menu plan? I've found that with trying to keep track of what I eat I have to plan. The easiest way is to spend some time at the beginning of the week and make a meal plan. I go through my flyers for sale items I can incorporate into our meals, pinterest for some new meal ideas and make my meal plan. I'm finding it so much easier when I plan for success. After my menu plan is set, my grocery list is made it's easy to make those healthy choices.

Here are a few of my favorite new recipes.

Baked Pumpkin Oatmeal - I am not one to eat a bowl of oatmeal. I just can't get past the texture but when I found this I knew I had to try it. This is a perfect oatmeal recipe for me. It taste like an oatmeal pumpkin cake for breakfast. I feel like I'm cheating!

Mushroom Stroganoff - A family hit and it really made a lot per serving. We had so much left over we had it for a side dish the next night.

Turkey Burgers with Zucchini - I was a little nervous about this recipe because my hubby is a big fan of his red meat and even he liked them. We also roasted some red onion and red peppers on the BBQ well the burgers were cooking for some low point toppings on our burgers.

Chickpea Cookie Pie - We had this for a treat one night and it was just like a warm gooey cookie. We also made banana ice cream to go with it. Which was just frozen bananas put in the blender with a little cocoa powder. Our children couldn't get enough of it!

This is our new recipe for this week Chicken Pot Pie Bundles. I'm hoping they taste as good as they look.

I'd love to hear your fav recipes. You can find all of these recipes links on my pinterest.

Until next time
