Meal Plan Monday - May 28

While I was making homemade rolls for the first time last week, I couldn't help but remember the delicious bread and rolls that my mom made for us when we were growing up.

She always set aside a little bit of dough for homemade doughboys fried with butter in a skillet or our favorite not-so-healthy breakfast pizza.  Waiting for that dough to rise was always a good lesson in patience.

This week I learned that not all dough recipes are the same.  While it was very satisfying to make successful rolls for the first time, I was a little bit disappointed that they weren't the soft, yeasty rolls of my childhood.  In the next few weeks I hope to try again and introduce my boys to homemade doughboys--just like my mom used to make.

Here's what's cooking in my kitchen this week:

Toast, Bananas
Rice Cake w/Peanut Butter
Pomegranate Cherry Smoothie

Greek Pasta Salad
Wedge Cobb Salad {great way to use up leftover chicken!}
Tuna Salad & Veggies in Lettuce Leaf Wrap, Applesauce
