Menu Plan Monday

I'm really digging the idea of "cooking once and eating twice." It makes busy weeknights so much easier and is a great help to the budget!
Here's my feeble attempt at it again this week!

Monday: Tacos on homemade whole wheat tortillas. Will make a double batch of ground taco meat. Also, a double recipe of tortillas will go towards lunches this week.
Here's a tip: Use 1 TBS. chili powder, 2 tsp. ground cumin, 1 tsp. dried oregano per pound of meat for a great taco seasoning...much better for you than the packaged stuff-NO MSG!

Tuesday: Turkey breast in the crockpot with roasted veggies.

Wednesday: Mexican stuffed peppers and garden salad. Extra taco meat from Monday will be mixed with fresh corn, black beans, salsa, cilantro, and topped with queso fresco. It will all go into the crock to cook slowly and it will be ready when we are.

Thursday: Turkey panninis and fresh fruit. Left over turkey breast from Tuesday, swiss cheese, tomato and homemade sprouted wheat bread for our sammies!

Friday: Easy spinach quiche using fresh yard eggs. Served with fruit left over from Thurs.

Saturday: Homemade pizza using my artisan bread in five minutes a day sponge. Literally I can take out some dough, flatten it out, top it and have it on the table in less than 30 minutes!

Sunday: Breakfast for dinner using more yard eggs.
