We have completed our shopping list for the week now we can begin our menu.
Monday’s Breakfast: Overnight Oats are simple and pleasing. Add 1/4 cup instant oats to the bottom of a clean jar add 3 tablespoons hot water, cover and refrigerate. In the morning simply peel a fresh peach, remove pit, slice and add to oats. If desired add plain yogurt first then add fresh sliced peaches and a dash or two of cinnamon. Coffee, tea.
Monday’s lunch: You have packed a healthy sandwich with sliced deli turkey, and a few slices of cheese on a multi-grain bread. Have your frozen water and flavored packet. Using your toaster oven and one potato can make some delicious and easy potato chips any flavor combination you desire. I like onion and lemon chips. Slice this potato (Idahoan) russet potato as thin as possible, place in a bowl of water (to slow browning and pull starches out). Dry on paper towels, line your toaster oven tray with aluminum foil spray with cooking spray (Pam will work) add seasoned (your choice) potato chips and bake @ 400 F FOR 12-14 minutes. Sprinkle with more seasoning if you want while still warm. Let them cool and they’re ready. Should make 2 servings from one potato!!!
Monday’s Supper/Dinner: You have purchased one pound lean ground beef. Cutting the package in half, freeze in a freezer safe zip-lock bag one half. You can make a hamburger patty (2) 1/4 pounder add cheese, any condiments you like. With or without a bun/roll. To make an easy macaroni and cheese dish, boil 1/2 box elbow macaroni as per box instructions, drain and rinse add to a bowl. Add cheeses (your choice, cheddar, monterey jack), stir add seasonings, place in a baking dish and bake 15 minutes @ 350 F. You will have leftovers to let cool down and use an airtight container to store in the refrigerator for another use. You will probably only eat one hamburger (or cheeseburger so freeze the other one you prepared). Using any condiments; lettuce, tomato, onion, mustard, mayonnaise, ketchup. You may be too full to eat any dessert! If studying get to it. If relaxing that is good. Everyone has to take timeout to relax, take a walk, read.
In my next post we will prepare Tuesday’s suggestions. Until then I will close wishing you “Good Health”. cheffie cooks easy 1-2-3.
