Meal Plan Week #8

MONDAY: Salad Bar
All the fixin's for your salad and a selection of fruit as well.

TUESDAY: Skillet Enchiladas
I might be pushing with this recipe. Instead of rice, it has quinoa and there are no tortillas. This is an area our family hasn't adventured to yet. By the way, I was surprised how expensive quinoa is to buy!

WEDNESDAY: Waffles & Eggs

THURSDAY: Slow Cooker Turkey Chili & Grilled Cheese
We love chili and grilled cheese, so I'm trying to make our chili a little healthier.

FRIDAY: Clean Out the Fridge!
We have my dad and step-mom coming on Saturday to stay for a week plus we are doing J's 5th birthday party on Saturday so we'll need some extra storage space. Side note: how the heck is my youngest baby 5?!

Super easy 4 ingredient cookies

I love to bake. I don't understand the people that say it is hard. I've only ever encountered a few mishaps in my baking. Yet I've had dozens of recipe fails when cooking. 

I'm one of those people who sees something on sale and say I better buy that. I'll need it some day. Well this left me with many boxes of Devil's Food Cake. As much as I love baking, cakes are not my thing. Cupcakes, yes. Full-blown cakes with frosting, no. So I decided to turn cake mix into cookies. Best of all, you only need 4 ingredients!

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies
makes 2 dozen

  • Box of Devil's Food Cake mix
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 package of semi-sweet chocolate chips (about 6 oz)
Mix first 3 ingredients together. Once combined add chocolate chips. The mixture will be very gooey. Drop onto baking sheets. Put in 375* oven for about 10 minutes. Serve with ice cold milk.
