Menu Plan for the Week of August 28th

This coming week I will be trying out some new heart-healthy recipes as well as incorporating more fresh vegetables into our meals. As a side job, I'm writing articles on colon cancer, and I have learned a lot about how important fiber-rich veggies are to preventing cancer. Therefore, I am trying to cut back on the red meat and up our intake of beans, fruits, and vegetables.

Here is our menu plan for the week:

Sunday: Spaghetti (from the freezer), peas, and Healthy Italian Breadsticks


The Pioneer Woman's Comfort Meatballs on mashed potatoes with cooked tomatoes & okra and glazed carrots

Tuesday: Stuffed poblano peppers with black beans and Spanish rice

Wednesday: Black-eyed peas (from the freezer), zucchini fritters and Tzatziki sauce, and corn bread muffins

Thursday: Barbecue chicken, steamed broccoli, macaroni and cheese, and fresh fruit

Pizza Night!!

Saturday: Annual Labor Day Fish Fry at my parents' cabin!

What's on your menu this week?

  2. The zucchini fritters look awesome. Love getting food ideas from your meal plans. So this may be a stupid question, but how do you glaze your carrots?

  3. Yeah, I am excited to see how the fritters turn out.

    I like to get menu ideas from other sources, too. I get so tired of the same old same old, you know?

    The glazed carrot recipe I use actually is from Eating Well. I think I actually substituted brown sugar for the honey because my youngest is only 11 months and isn't supposed to have honey yet. But either way they are delicious! Both of my girls eat them up! Here's the link:

    Thanks for stopping by!
