Meal Plan Monday- August 23-29th

I have been a baking fool lately (surprise, surprise)!  I have seriously used my Bosch Universal Plus Mixer almost every single day since I received it from Marmee's Bread Market!  So far I have made basic whole wheat bread with both red and golden wheat (10 loaves total), about 35 of the softest dinner rolls on the planet (froze a bunch), whole wheat pizza crust, banana bread, overnight cinnamon rolls & frosting, and today I added whole wheat english muffins to the mix!  I'm on a roll ladies and soon you will see posts (and even some video... eek!) about all of it!

Here is what's on the menu for this week!  You will probably notice a lot of repeats, but since we are on a tight budget still I am trying to stretch one meal as far as I can!
