Our Menu (Week of January 8, 2012)

It’s supposed  to cool down this week (I am not a fan of 80 degree temperatures in January) so I’ll be using the oven more this week.  My parents gave us a beautiful (I find kitchen items visually appealing:) toaster oven for Christmas so I’ll try that out for a couple of dishes.  I don’t know how to use it yet (it does far more than “toast”), but I’ll just go with the “bake” function this week and focus on the complicated functions next week.

We have a few meals out later in the week because my best friend Jennifer is visiting–it has been too long and I’m more than a little excited.  We have a list of places we plan to oink our way through (always our priority) which is never boring because she loves food as much as I do!


Oatmeal with dried cherries, bananas, freshly squeezed orange juice

Egg/cheese/veggie skillet, smoothies

Baked apple cinnamon oatmeal, orange juice x 2

Toast with peanut butter or jam, bananas, freshly squeezed orange juice
