    No real meal plan this week. I'm going to the farmers market tomorrow and hope to get some inspiration. It is hard to cook for just one person. Especially me because I'm not a big fan of leftovers.

    Possibilities include:
    -Breakfast for dinner - sausage links, scrambled eggs, and blueberry pancakes
    -If I can find some pretty and ripe tomatoes, a batch of chili or veggie soup
    -BLT with fruit on the side
    -Dinner out with my cousin one night
    -French bread pizza with mushroom, pepperoni and onion

    Have a great week everyone

    Raesmom1612 - the taco soup sounds so good. I'll have to see if I can find the recipe.
    LindaBates - the ham, hashbrown & egg casserole sounds delicious.
    Faye - I love turkey sausage with peppers and onions (not really a mushroom person).

    No real "plan" but some time this week I would like to make some taco soup, today may be that day if I can get to the store after work.

    Later this week I will do some creamy pork chops with mashed potatoes and veggies, some quick spaghetti and meat sauce, maybe some tacos since I have some lettuce that is going bad soon and lastly some sort of chicken in the oven, maybe bbq. Its been quite some time since Rae and I have been in the kitchen baking so I promised my big girl that we could do some baking before she starts big girl school. She is excited (for cupcakes and school lol)

    I have a taste for a BLT with avocado so I think that's what will be for dinner tonight. I bought some bacon that is already cooked (just heat in the microwave). My hubby said it was good and if he likes it, it must be good! Have a great Monday everyone.
