Menu Plan: January 30th-February 5th

A few days ago when I was planning the menu for this week it was a beautiful 60+ degree day in Oklahoma. Today as I am writing this post, they are forecasting freezing rain, sleet, and snow, mixed in with some high wind and single digit weather. You have to love Oklahoma weather. It is never boring.

So, let’s just say what sounded good for the menu plan in 60 degree weather, may not end up happening if  the week goes as the weather man says it will. I am thinking a few of these meals may be switched out for soup and hot chocolate.

And we won’t even talk about what the menu plan will look like if we lose electricity, which often happens when you live in Oklahoma, in the middle of the country, during an ice/snow storm.

I hope your weather this week is less exciting than mine.

regular waffles ( my gluten free version)

  1. I just changed my menu plan this week today too, thanks to that lovely weather that is about to come our way! I can handle a few inches, but I’ll pass on 10!

  2. Everything looks so good on your weekly menus…. I can’t wait to try out the sausage and tomato risotto….. Do you think it would work in the crock pot? I think I’ll give it a try and see how it works out. Thanks for sharing your recipes with us Lynn!

  3. I keep seeing Mexican rice on menus and websites – now I’m dying for some Mexican food! Good luck with the weather. We’re expecting a storm, as well, this week – 6-12 inches of snow is what they’re saying.

  4. Looks great! I am adding the risotto to my “try it” list.

  5. Lynn- Maybe you should post what you do if the ice takes the power out- I’m always looking for different ideas!

  6. I made your taco pasta tonight (with GF noodles, as I have celiac) and we loved it! My husband and I weren’t sure about it but ended up really liking it. Thaks!

  7. Great menu, going to try your sausage and tomato risotto. Hope you dont get to much snow.
