Hello, okay I have another week of our meals. It’s funny I don’t think any of these meals are “Pinterest” worthy, they are just plain basic meals. Listening to a sermon from our Pastor and he said, everyone will post the steak dinner that they had and we all think that they eat like that all the time. In reality no one posts the peanut butter sandwich or hot dog meal that they had on the other days;) It gave me insight into the reality of …yes this is life. I am sometimes just lucky to have a basic meal on the table for them to eat. It is nutrition for them, nothing fancy, just food for their bellies:)
With all that said, here are the meals that we made last week.
We had a lot of eggs so I made a breakfast meal. We made egg mcmuffin sandwiches. I made them simple by adding some bacon bits in the bottom of my chicken fryer and then cracking eggs on top. I cooked them for a few minutes so that the bottoms were set, then pour a little bit of water around the edges, put the lid on and let them simmer real slow until they were all set. I cut them out, placed on an English muffin, added a slice of cheese, and there is your egg mcmuffin.
Then we made some banana chocolate chip waffles. This was a little different spin on our traditional waffles. I used the same recipe, I just added some frozen bananas–because I have a bunch in my freezer and I want to use up my fragments. The chocolate chips were just to make it more appealing:)
I wrapped all the sandwiches up individually so that they would stay together easier and placed them in a pan in the oven. I covered the waffles and placed them in the oven as well. I kept it on low so that everything would stay warm before dinner time. This was great to have leftovers for breakfast.
Spaghetti is a traditional standby in our home. I had some leftover meatballs so I threw those in the crockpot, added a couple big cans of tomato sauce, spices, and had an easy spaghetti dinner. Here is the recipe.
Even though I am posting this next, we didn’t have this until the end of the week. Homemade lasagna.
I bought three packages of noodles and made two big pans of this. I froze one for another day of this month when life gets busy:) We actually had this two days in a row.
My friend Tammy gave me this next recipe. It was delicious and makes a lot. My husband does not like Mexican sort of meals so I made this after the spaghetti day and he was more than happy to have spaghetti over this:) Everyone else enjoyed it.
I placed out all the ingredients for toppings and we made taco sort of individual plates. We had the following as toppings:
- corn tortillas
- flour tortillas
- enchilada mixture
- sour cream
This is a new meal that we definitely will be having more of. Super easy. Click here for the recipe.
I made up some extras from the leftovers and froze them on cookie sheets. We will have these for a quick lunch. Corn tortillas are good when baked in the oven for an extra crisp.
We had enough of this to have for a couple of days. My husband happily ate leftover spaghetti–he can eat that for days…not my children:)
Then we had a hamburger meal—the ones from Aldis. We added baked beans, watermelon and we had leftover chips and salsa. It worked:)
This was our week. Maybe not too exciting, but it was food for our bellies:) Have a blessed day.
