A VGABS Menu Plan

I thought it would be fun to celebrate the kick-off of the Virtual Great American Bake Sale by planning our menu this week around some of the fantastic recipes in the VGABS ebooks. There are so many great options in there that it was really easy.

And just so you know, putting together the ebooks is the reason why my posting has been a little off these past few weeks. I had no idea that copy & pasting could take so much time. But it was definitely an honor to do and I'm so excited to see how much we are able to raise for Share Our Strength.

This week I should be able to get back on track with posting and menu planning. Last week was a nice break, and one I might need to do more often, especially with summer coming up. But until then, let's see how this week goes. I am only planning breakfasts and dinner because I'm working on coming up with a new system for lunches. (If you have some no-fail lunches that you make and eat frequently, I'd love to hear about them!)

All of the italicized recipes are from the VGABS ebooks.


  • M - Banana Nut Bread & Smoothies
  • T - Orange Baked Oatmeal
  • W - Cinnamon coffee cake, strawberries & bananas
  • Th - Whole wheat overnight waffles
  • F - Strawberry fortnight muffins & smoothies
  • S - Breakfast casserole
  • Su - Crock pot granola
  • M - Chicken flautas, tossed salad
  • T - Sausage florentine bake
  • W - Shrimp skewers & fried rice
  • Th - Bolognese, Italian breadsticks
  • F - Green chili lasagna, cantaloupe
  • S - Stromboli ladder loaf, root beer floats
  • Su - Dilly chicken sandwiches, fresh fruit w/ fruit dip
I'm not making specific plans to make any of the 99 cookie or dessert recipes, although it will take every ounce of self-control I have to not make at least one a day.

I read about the VGABS on many of my favorite blogs. What a great idea!
Sounds like some terrific workday dinners for your busy household.
Happy MPM!

A Grammatical Disclaimer

I freely admit to consistently using improper grammar in the following areas:
1. I like run-on sentences.
2. I have a tendency to end sentences with a pronoun. (I really do. I can't help it.)
3. I always seem to use passive voice in my sentences. (See?)

I've been trying to break this habit, unsuccessfully, for years, so now I just accept that as my writing style, and since I'm not writing for grades anymore, I embrace it. (Again, see?)

Hence, I invoke Blogger Artistic License for this blog!
