January 29-February 4, 2017 Meal Plan

This is our basic meal plan for the week. Sometimes we will switch the days around if I forgot to set something out or put something in the crock pot. Please feel free to use this or change it around to suit your family’s needs.

I do have ‘Snacks/Desserts’ listed as well. I always try to keep a bowl of fresh fruit out on the counter or table for the kids to snack on. Sometimes I will make a special snack or treat for us to enjoy.

Easy Apple Dumplings

These are definitely not super healthy but they are pretty easy to make. They are also a special treat we enjoy from time to time.

Easy Apple Dumplings

Ingredients:

  • 2-3 cans crescent rolls
  • 3-4 apples, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 3/4 c butter or margarine
  • 1 1/2 c. sugar
  • 1 t. cinnamon
  • 1 can Mountain Dew or 7up

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350.

Unroll the rolls and put apple chunks on each one. Roll them up and seal the edges shut.

Place in a greased 9×13 baking dish. Bake for 10-15 minutes.

While baking melt the butter in a saucepan. Add the sugar and cinnamon.

Pour over the baked dumplings. Then pour the soda over everything.

Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown.

Serve with vanilla ice cream, drizzled with sauce, for a special treat.
