Meal Plan Monday

Bon Soir!! It's that time of the week again. Last week was a bit of a bust for meal planning. I planned, but we didn't follow through. Last minutes plans happened on Thursday so I didn't get to try the Morrocan stew. I will do this this week.
Here's my menu:

Monday: Pork Steak, roasted potatoes, and broccoli. I will make a side of green salad.

Tuesday: BBQ Hamburgers, Caesar salad.(Scott didn't want to try the tuna burgers)

Wednesday:Tuna Casserole and Salsa Salad.

Thursday: Chicken Fajitas

Friday: Lasagna, Garlic Toast and Mixed Green Salad.

Saturday: Moroccan Stew and buns.

Sunday: Turkey with all of the fixings!

Hopefully this week will be better!!
Take care!
Happy Menu Planning and best of all...happy eating!!

Question of the Day...

I saw this on another blog and thought I'd ask the question and then give my response.
What is your earliest moment of cooking/baking of your own?

My earliest recollection of baking is when I got my first easy bake oven. Oh how I loved this easy bake oven. It came with lots of cake and cookie mixes. I quickly baked through these and then decided I would make my own cakes from scratch. My mom, who is not much of a baker(amazing cook,but not a baker)gave me free reign in the kitchen. I came up with a sure fired cake recipe. I baked it and remember my first bite...I had expected it to be scrumptious. Obviously I was a natural,but to my astonishment it tasted absolutely disgusting! No one would eat anything more than the morsel I offered. I ended up feeding it to my dog Smokey who later on puked it up!!
