Family Prayer Printable and Menu

This week’s menu SCREAMS comfort food.  Memphis’ weather is rainy and cold.  I just want to be inside eating “stick to your ribs” kind of meals.  Our day starts with my boys coming down the stairs in the morning begging for Pop Tarts or frozen waffles but nooo…their mama has to cook FANCY.  Sweet Taylor is OVER my fancy breakfasts.  One day my children will appreciate the fact that I send them to school with a home cooked meal but right now they plead for Honey Buns.

Here is the “fancy” breakfast from this morning:

Coconut Lemon Pancakes

Basic Baking Mix ~ use enough to make around 8 pancakes

¼-1/2 tsp lemon extract
1/2  tsp coconut extract
1/4 cup shredded coconut (optional)
1/2 cup powdered sugar
3-4 TBS milk

Prepare pancake mix, and add lemon and coconut extract.  Cook pancakes.

Instead of maple syrup, mix powdered sugar and milk to create a thin glaze.

Hopefully our family menu will help give you some ideas for your week.  Half the battle is planning for the "What's for Dinner?" question!
