Menu Plan - January 27

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

We are going into week 2 without a microwave.  And, so far – I’ve only really missed it twice. 

Not sure what happened to ours except that it runs when it’s shut and you haven’t programmed it.  So, we’ve unplugged it. 

I’m not sure how long we’ll keep going with this situation, but for now, we’ll keep reheating in the toaster oven, oven or on the stove.  Takes just a few extra minutes and a little more planning on my behalf. 

Reheating Cinnamon Raisin French Toast in the toaster oven was extra tasty! 

We also made my favorite muffin – Apple, Carrot and Zucchini Muffins.  These packed muffins include 3 C of whole wheat flour, 1/2 C applesauce, and more than 5 1/2 C of veggies and fruits.  Plus, each muffin is 100 calories and contains only 1 gram of fat (the original recipe had 200 calories and 7g of fat).  I doubled the batch and made 48 muffins for Bible study – we have about 18 left!  Get the recipe here

Both Frog Prince and I start teaching this week for spring semester.  He starts on Monday (teaching adjunct for 1 course) and I start Wednesday.  Yummy meal planning begins!

  1. Your Cinnamon Raisin French Toast sounds delicious. And I've got to make those muffins. Always been a muffin fan but can only justify them if they've got some nutrition. Otherwise it's "an excuse to eat cake for breakfast" :-D!
