It’s Saturday night and I find myself meal planning for this week. I typically don’t do any meal planning until Sunday evening after I’ve had a chance to look through the grocery circulars, clip coupons from the paper. But this week is just different.
While Sundays have always been a quiet, day of rest (if that’s possible with 3 boys running around) for our family, I often find myself taking advantage of quiet moments to clip coupons or meal plan. But that only distracts me and takes my mind away from my family and our time together. So…I’m going to make an attempt to spend those few minutes each week on Saturdays now…to save Sunday for resting.
This week is Vintage Recipe Week. I have already chosen the meals that I plan to make from my grandmother’s Tested Recipes Cookbook (above) from 1940.
Here they are…Posts with recipes and our thoughts on the meal coming this week and next…
Monday - Chicken Croquettes
Tuesday – Baked Chicken with Swedish Tea Rolls
Wednesday – Smothered Pork Chops
Thursday – Breakfast for Dinner – German Coffee Cake with Scrambled Eggs
Friday – Ship Wreck Casserole
Saturday – Dinner on the Town
Sunday - Preschool Picnic
I will post the recipes each night after I make the meal. If you see a meal you are interested in, please check back for the recipe later in the week!
