Menu Plan Monday: Aug 30th

It was so hard to get this week's dinner plans together for some reason. I think I'm just a little bored with what I've been cooking. However, Vince is out of town for most of this week and I need to cook just what the kids will like and eat. I'm pleased with what I've finally decided on~with input from the *peanut gallery*:)

I admit I sometimes don't eat very well when Vince is out of town. I'll just fix something child-friendly for the kiddos and then just snack around for myself. But then I get all cranky because I haven't had anything good to eat...haha So I'm determined to make good meals for all of us this week!

I did try a new-to-the-kiddos recipe this past week that was well-received, so I'm sharing that with you today. I always love it when The Princess says "Mom, you can add this one to the list!".

Quick Quiche
3 eggs
1/2 cup biscuit mix (like Bisquick)
1/2 cup butter, melted
1-1/2 cups milk1/4 tsp. salt
Pepper to taste
3/4-1 cup shredded cheese
Whatever add-ins you want, such as:
bacon, chicken, ham, turkey, mushrooms,
any combo of veggies...(all pre-cooked)
Mix the eggs, biscuit mix, butter, milk salt and pepper in a blender and blend well. Stir in the cheese and whatever meats and veggies you would like. Pour mixture into a buttered 10" pie dish. Bake at 350F for 35-45 minutes or until center is set. Let cool for 10 minutes.

Here's what's cooking this week:

Monday: Chicken Pot Pie
Tuesday: Biscuits w/Chocolate Gravy, Eggs and Bacon
Wednesday: Potato Soup
Thursday: Homemade Pizza
{small group} Green Chile-Chicken Casserole
Saturday: Grilled Steaks, Baked Potatoes and Summer Squash

Yum! I love quiche and don't make it nearly enough as I should, especially since it's a fairly easy dish to make. Your menu looks like it will please your kids and yourself at the same time. I've never heard of biscuits w/ chocolate gravy... I may have to give that a try with my kids sometime! Thanks for the ideas. =)
