Menu Plan Monday – June 7th

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on June 6, 2010

So I’m *almost* finished with recipe testing for The $5 Dinner Mom’s Breakfast and Lunch Cookbook. *Almost*

I can’t wait for the recipe testing to be over…and to feel a little less dizzy.  My mind has been swirling with recipes, ingredients, ideas, tweaks, etc. for the past 4 months.  And I’m SO ready for a little more “white matter” peace!

Having a plan in place certainly helps me maintain said brain peace…

Breakfast for dinner is how I’ve been managing the breakfast foods. It can’t be beat! If we are running low on a breakfast freezer food, then we have it for dinner!

Good luck on finishing up the taste testing!

I think we are going to have coconut rice and beans this week too. I think I recenly saw this recipe on 365 days of crockpot cooking. It sounds so good!

And cooking 15 chicken breasts at once… so smart!!!!!
