I'm often asked where I get my ideas.....PINTEREST.
I can't say to much more than that. Lets be serious, of course I can say more!
I spend way to much time on Pinterest.
I have however tried numerous things and been pleased.
However even getting recipes off Pinterest I still change them up to suit my family. We try to stay away from processed foods and to eat as clean as we can. Sticking to organic and Non-GMO foods as much as possible.
When ever I post a picture with my meal plan you can generally click on the picture and it will take you to my Pinterest, then you can click again and it will take you to the source with the recipe.
On to this week. Nothing on my calendar as far as meetings. I will remember to keep my more detailed meals early in the week and my easy go to meals later in the week when I have way less energy to make something. My aim is to have a small grocery list.
Best Ever Beef Stew
Amazing no kneed Bread
-I made this bread last week with organic white flour, it was fantastic.
I'm going to attempt to make it with some organic Kamut flour
Beef and Kale Tacos
-I'm going to try organic Kamut flour
Tomato Basil Soup
Parmesan Garlic Baked Chicken
(I have some organic Italian spices I'll use rather then the packaged Italian Dressing Mix)
Simple Scallop Potatoes
Lasagna from the freezer
HOOTENANNY (Or Oven Pancake)
-made with organic Kamut flour
This week I'm obviously checking out Kamut flour and we'll see how that goes.

My kids love love love cinnamon rolls. When I can, I make them my no rise cinnamon rolls, but with my kids lack of sleeping in, I have been so tired and not been up to making them lately.
Much to my kids joy, I have discovered an even easier way to make cinnamon rolls!
Enter in Trader Joe's pre made pizza Dough! Add some cinnamon, butter and brown sugar.
And my kids are happy!
You really can't get more simple than that.
Turn your oven to 350
Dust your work surface with some flour and roll out the dough into a rough rectangle.
This is a bit harder when you are tired.
This morning my butter was frozen so I sorta chunked it out onto the dough,
normally when it's softer I used my hands to spread it out.
I think I went a bit overboard with the butter, but it was good.
Then you add the brown sugar and cinnamon, no measurements, sorry!
Gently roll the dough up and cut into pieces with a serrated knife.
When you put the pieces into the pan, you can leave a bit of room between them,
but they won't rise much more.
Bake for about a half an hour, but keep on eye on them.
When they are turning a nice golden brown, they are done.

I realized last week that right now I shouldn't be planning any meals that take extra effort for the end of the week. I need to keep those at the start of the week when I seem to have more energy. I didn't make the Eggs Up but rather pulled a meatloaf out of the freezer.
We have a pretty low key week. Other than a visit from my homeschool teacher to see what I've been up to and Karate for the boy tonight we are free and clear.
Remember you can click on the picture of the meal to lead you to my pinterest page, then to the website with the recipe.
