Menu Plan Monday


We all really liked last week's cookbook (Sainbury's Wholefood Cookbook) but it was nothing really new for us.  Almost all of the recipes that I tried were very similar to recipes I had made in the past.  It is a great cookbook though.  Not too many ingredients or steps and you get tasty results.  With that being said, I will be passing along this cookbook to a friend (who was a guinea pig for some of the recipes.) 
This week, I will working out of Blessings which is a local church cookbook - we all know those are the best, right?  :)
Monday - Marinated Venison with Steamed Veggies and Scalloped Potatoes
Tuesday - Muffalettas and Creole Green Beans
Wednesday - No Peek Stew with Wholegrain Egg Noodles
Thursday - Breakfast for Supper
Friday - Leftovers
This is a part of the wonderfulness that is Menu Plan Monday over at Organizing Junkie.

  1. What a great idea to plan from a different cookbook each week. This is something I might have to try, it seems to me this would prevent boredom with your menu. Your menu plan sounds delicious.

  2. Thanks! It all really came about as a way of culling cookbooks since I have more cookbooks than shelves. I like this method of randomly picking out a few recipes as a taster of each book because you're right, it prevents boredom. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I've never eaten venison but one day I will be brave enough to try it. Great menu plan.

  4. I have to agree - I love the idea! I have more cookbooks than space myself - and that's AFTER I swapped in a bigger bookshelf. . . and I just couldn't resist the half-price Cook's Country cookbook. (rolling my eyes)

  5. Thank you for dropping in. Venison is SO yummy and good for you - no hormones, totally organic, and extremely lean. Because it is so lean though, you need to cook it low and slow. Give it a try!

  6. I'm with ya sister on the not being able to resist the half pricers...Don't get me started on vintage cookbooks at estate sales...it's like a gravitational pull.

  7. I love old cookbooks. Which isn't helpful since I don't cook over fire and can't even recognize some ingredients! But I love them anyways :)

    I'll check out the whole foods cookbook on google books though - maybe htey have a peak :)

  8. Isn't it neat to see what food was in vogue 50, 75, or more years ago? I know what you mean about ingredients. Especially when you live in a small town, it's hard to find slightly odd or obscure items.
    Good luck with your search for images of the Whole Foods book. It really was quite good.
