Here are my menu plans for the week. I plan breakfasts, lunches and dinners and then choose which meal I want to prepare from my list, daily.


Sausage and biscuit

Dry cereal, fruit

Homemade yogurt and fruit

Bacon, eggs, toast

Oats, maple syrup and butter



Roast chicken sandwiches, carrots and celery with peanut butter

Pasta and homemade pesto

Chili beans and rice

Cream of tomato soup, homemade whole wheat crackers

Chocolate, coconut candy –

  • 1 cup coconut oil, organic, virgin, unrefined
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons peppermint extract
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup raw honey
  • 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut

Line a 9″ by 13″  casserole dish with parchment paper.  Mix all ingredients except shredded coconut in a food processor til smooth and mixed. Add coconut and mix well but don’t chop it up too much. Spread in the prepared pan. Freeze.

Break or cut the candy into serving pieces. Store in the freezer. Because of the coconut oil, the candy will get melty at room temperature.


Peach Cobbler-

1 cup whole wheat flour

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 cup sugar or other sweetener

1 cup milk

1 stick butter

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 pint home-canned peaches with juice or 1 – 14 ounce can peaches with juice.

Heat oven to 350*F.  Melt butter in a 9×13 casserole dish. Mix all ingredients except peaches. Pour into melted butter, do not stir!  Next add the peaches and juice. Sprinkle with sanding sugar and a bit of cinnamon. Bake at 350*F for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until done and golden brown. Serve warm.

    I have a comment about your peach cobbler recipe=I have one that is similar but mine includes some baking powder and salt. It makes the bread part of the cobbler rise around the fruit. I’ve never tried the recipe without it. Does the bread part of the cobbler just cook on the bottom of the dish? And as a note, I frequently add some crushes pineapple with the peaches. Delicious when cooked together.

      Maria I’m glad you said something, I added the baking powder, soda and salt to the recipe. Thank you! Otherwise it would not have turned out for anyone. I must have been in a big hurry that day.

    Gonna have to try that Peach Cobbler recipe 🙂 (after I move pots, pans and bakeware into their new home and put the screws back in the bottom of my oven. I took it apart, degrees it, put all the pots back in and FORGOT about the screws.)
