Menu Plan – July 31

Menu Plan Monday is hosted at Organizing Junkie - stop by for hundreds of menus

Seriously… when did it get to be the end of July?  This summer has gone way too fast!  But, the good news is that I still have 3ish weeks before things really gear up for the fall semester.  That means I have two weeks to finish outlining my new food course.  Eek! 

We had a delightful week here at the casa de Frog Prince and SnoWhite last week – celebrated our anniversary (twice!), enjoyed new windows being put into our house and got together with colleagues I miss dearly when they came to town for a conference!  Our garden also began producing zucchini and cucumber… yeah!

Whole Wheat Cherry Lime Yogurt Scones

Saturday night we’re having a baby shower for our friends who are having a little girl in September!  So, I need your best baby shower and dessert recipe ideas!


  1. When I click on the pics, it just opens a window with a bigger pic in it. :(

  2. Nevermind. Silly me. :) I just now noticed that when my cursor is over the pic... it say recipe to come.
    Silly me. :)

  3. Looks like a tasty week for you and your hubby. The roasted red pepper stir fry sounds interesting, cant wait to see the recipe. Have a great week!

  4. Looks like a good menu! :) You have leftover pancakes - how do you keep them & reheat them? Any special trick?

    Baby shower dessert... have you heard of FoodGawker? If not, you really should check it out! They have TONS of awesome recipes and all with pictures! (similar to Pinterest, but strictly food) You can sign up for a free account and then save items to your favorites. They also have an iPhone app, if that's something you use. I'm sure you could find something there under the desserts category.

  5. You guys a yummy week last week! :) Wishing you the best in planning your upcoming semester!

  6. I don't think you can ever go wrong with a big fruit salad at a baby shower!

  7. Excited to see the recipes for some of your new creations. They look awesome!

  8. Just saw a great recipe on "Semi-Homemade" on the Food Network. They were called lemon tea cakes. It uses a box of lemon cake mix, cool-whip and egg whites for the "cake" part. Then you top with lemon pudding and meringue. Looks simple and yummy!! Hope you have a fun baby shower! Here's the link


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you; especially how you're finding JOY in your kitchen.
