Meal Plan Monday

I've wanted to start posting my menu each week so that I'd be more intentional about planning, shopping, healthy eating, etc. This is the week! So thanks everyone for stopping by and visiting. I hope you'll like what you find and come back again.

This is going to be a busy week, so my meal plan is easy. I don't usually do two soups in one week--especially during the summer. But this is the way it worked with the food I had on hand and what I could make ahead of time.

Monday--*cabbage soup for my hunny and I/spagetti for the kids
Tuesday--salmon patties and veggies (salmon patties purchased from Trader Joe's)
Wednesday--fellowship meal at church
Friday--chili with cornbread
Saturday--tossed salad with chicken and homemade wheat bread (recipe below)
Sunday--OPEN HOUSE for hunny (being held at a good friend's house)

*Cabbage soup is one of the recipes on our 30-day meal plan, so I can't give you the exact recipe. However has several that are similar.

Homemade bread recipe:
1 1/8 c. hot water
2 T. olive oil
2 T. honey
2 3/4 c. whole wheat flour
1 1/2 T. gluten
1/2 T. lecithin granules
1/2 t. salt
2 t. (heaping) yeast

Put ingredients in bread machine in order recommended by manufacturer. Set on dough cycle. When complete shape, put dough in loaf pan and put in cold oven. Turn on to 350 degrees. Bake 23-27 minutes.
