Bake to Basics

As many of my readers know the entire month of July was taken up by practices and performing with the community theater. So not much cooking went one, we had to be at the theater each night at 6:00. Not to go down this rabbit trail but I read in the local paper today that the community theater is holding a meeting this Saturday for interested parents/teens/children to see if there is now a need for a children's acting group. Needless to say we are going, just to see what they have in mind. Anywho, back to the original thought for this post. Last week I made two loaves of bread and a batch of brownies and cooked dinner nearly every night. This week I decided to do a menu plan (something I never do). Here is what is on tap for the week for dinner:
Monday - Eggs, biscuits, bacon and cantaloupe
Tuesday - Spaghetti, Salad and bread
Wednesday - Grilled Cheese Sandwich and Soup, Fruit
Thursday - Grilled Chicken, Mac and Cheese, Potatoes, Salad and Bread
Friday - Homemade pizza, salad and fruit
Saturday - Tacos
Sunday - Hot dogs and mac and cheese

I know some of you will read this and think, do these guys eat any veggies. To be frank, not much. We never really have, but working on it. I also have alot of fruit in the house right now and trying to find ways to eat it all before going bad. Cantaloupe for snacks and the chickens love it. Me and Grace made strawberry/banana smoothies yesterday for a snack and tonight I made a parfait with redi whip, strawberries, blueberries and bananas. So we are trying to eat healthier it is just one step at a time.
