This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every moring: great is thy faithfulness. The Lord is my portion saith my soul: therefore will I hope in him. The Lord is good unto them that wait for Him, to the soul that seeketh him. It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD. Lamentations 3: 21-26

Menu Plan Monday

This week I thought it might be nice to join Laura over at I'm an Organizing Junkie. If ever there was someone who needs organized it's me and Laura has all sorts of organized entertainment at her blog. Very pretty space too! I thought I could maybe slide into this organizing in the menu department without stress so here we go...

Monday’s Menu Plan
Monday—Meatloaf, Au Gratin Potatoes, green beans
Tuesday—make your own pizza
Wednesday— chicken strips, rice, salad, carrots
Thursday—goulash and doo doo bread
Friday—grilled chicken, bread, salad, mixed veg

Since we're working off a pretty tight budget (another lesson to learn) everything is already in the pantry. I am making myself do a pantry challenge on top of some organizing. For those who are wondering, "What the heck is "doo-doo" bread?" Well, let me tell you. It is frozen bread dough, thawed and cut into about a doughnut sized piece that is fried. Oh, yes--we are the height of health around here sometimes. My dad used to call it "Poor Man's Bread." My mother called it "Dough Dobbers." But my DarlingCaveGeek (DCG) had to go and call it "Doo-Doo Bread." So who do you think my sweet, innocent, little sons copied...Yup their Daddy.

There are several other ladies who visit Menu Plan Monday to share menu ideas. Some of them even share some great recipes!

Doodoo bread sounds good. I have some frozen roll dough and may just try that this week... do you use canola oil? Do they have to rise first?
Have a great week!

The doo-doo bread is just thawed, cut and cooked without rising. I just have veg. oil in the cabinet. Canola would be fine, I am sure.

Make sure the bread is golden and cooked through so it is soft but not chewy.

To make it even more healthy the boys and I slap on butter and sugar, but DCG uses butter and parmesean w/garlic. Can you hear the hardening arteries?

My kids would love to make their own pizza's. We hardly ever do it because it is so much easier to call the pizza place! We have the same colors on our blogs--and we both use the word, "Joyful"! Have a great week!
