Breakfast for supper + menu planning

Tonight was a nothing-special kind of supper, if comfort food is nothing special! One of the best things out there is breakfast for supper and tonight we had pancakes, eggs and hash browns. It wasn't gourmet but my kids were happy, as evidenced by their multiple helpings.  My eldest daughter ate 8!

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup white flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
4 tsp baking powder
2 cups milk
3 tbsp oil
1 tsp vanilla

* Sift together dry ingredients
*Make a well in the centre of the bowl and add eggs, mix
*Slowly add milk and mix again
*Add vanilla and oil
*Pour batter onto non-stick grill and wait until bubbles form at the top
*Flip and cook for another 1-2 minutes

I usually do my menu planning on Sunday nights, but as its a long weekend I am working on it tonight.  I'd love to hear from you guys for some ideas for next week!  Any favourites that I should try?  Here's what I have for this week:
Tuesday: Mediterranean Lentil Soup
Wednesday: Curried Bean Burgers
Thursday: Shannon's French Onion Soup
Friday: Calzones (first try!)
Saturday: Slow Cooker Chili in Bread Bowls
Sunday: Baked Macaroni and Tofu Fingers
Monday: Sweet and Sour Lentils

  1. I'm making the Mediterranean Lentil Soup next Monday. :) Curried bean burgers sound divine! And calzones. I've always wanted to try those. Can't wait to see you try first! haha.

    Looking forward to this week.
