I’m not terribly thrilled with our menu plan for this week.  I think I was just tired when I worked on it Saturday evening and finished it up Sunday evening.  Maybe it’s the subtle change in the weather, but I have some very ambitious plans for menus in the coming weeks.  In fact, I’ve already made some notes for next week’s menu, and I’ve already pencilled in a couple of new recipes.

Ah, but that’s NEXT week!  This week, Dani is bringing back a fall favorite for our Sunday morning breakfast, Whole Wheat Apple Cinnamon Rolls.  Yummmmmy!  The rest of the week is just some of our standard fare….like I said, I’m looking forward next week to changing things up a bit!  As always, any recipes with a * will be shared later this week, usually late in the day it is prepared.  There are several links to recipes I’ve posted before, and a couple of recipe ideas right here on the menu plan as well.  There may also be a couple of extra recipes and/or recipe ideas posted later this week, too.  Like I said, I’m feeling ambitious!

Head on over to Laura’s blog to perk up your menu planning and see all of the great posts in this week’s Menu Plan Monday.
