Meal Planning

Here's our menu for the week:

(Meatless) Monday: Christie's Party In Your Mouth Soup (African Yam and Peanut Soup)
Tuesday: Tomato Soup and Grilled Sandwiches
Wednesday: Fish Tacos
Thursday: Pulled Pork (I will be adapting from The Pioneer Woman's recipe) and corn casserole
Friday: Potato and Leek Soup and homemade bread

Speaking of homemade bread,  I'm on my third attempt and I think we are moving to closer to finding something that will work for us.  The recipe is really easy and the dough is kept in the fridge, I just tear off a chunk, form it and bake it for fresh bread whenever we want it.  I'm still working to incorporate more than white and wheat flour (I'd like to add spelt and oat as well) but I think it will be best to work up to those.  Sandwich bread is also proving to be a challenge but after a little research, I think the solution may come from a different form of loaf pan instead of the bread itself.
 
Can you tell it's winter???  Tons of soups on the menu to keep us warm!  What's on your menu for the week?
