Menu Plan Monday #6: 12/12-12/18

I am finally getting around to creating a recipe binder.  I have 20+ Cookbooks, hundreds of pages from magazines, and too many internet bookmarks.  My goal is to try at least three new recipes each week and put the best into the binder with a picture of the completed dish (Prince Charming hates cookbooks without pictures).  Throughout the week I will post any recipes that made the cut and link them up here.  If you haven't seen my Recipe Journal Printable- I print it on the backs of all of my recipes to track changes and guinea pigs!

Sambar (Indian Vegetable Soup)

Breakfasts and Lunches are always pretty much the same.  For breakfast we rely on Pancakes, Eggs, Muffins, Cold Cereal, and Cinnamon Rolls.  Lunches are Salads, Sandwiches, and Leftovers.  We also own a bakery/deli, so we eat lunch there several days a week.

Monday:  Indian Cabbage and Peas
Tuesday: Sausage Jambalaya with Creamed Red Beans
Wednesday: Shrimp Curry
Thursday: Spinach Dal
Friday: Spaghetti
Saturday:  Freebie- We usually eat out on Saturdays
Sunday: Sambar (Indian Vegetable Soup)

AND.... Best of all- we are making a variety of cookies for a Big Sister's Christmas Party using my Double Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe!  I just double the recipe, then divide the dough between 4 bowls and put 1 cup of chips into each bowl- Mini M & M's, Chocolate Chips, White Chocolate Chips, and Butterscotch Chips!  YUM!
