Menu Plan Monday (3/1 – 3/7)


Well, I finally got my steak last week and it was delicious! The kids and I also got to make an extra fun little treat.

Have you ever had Knox blox? Honestly, I had never even heard of these until a few weeks ago. I had some awesome Knox coupons that landed me free Knox gelatine. The problem was, I had to find a way to use the Knox.

That was when my husband introduced me to Knox blox. His mom used to make these for him when he was a kid. It’s basically just a harder form of Jello that you can cut into squares or make shapes with cookie cutters without it falling apart on you.

Here’s what you need.


  • 2 (3 oz) pkgs Jell-o Gelatin
  • 3 envelopes Knox Gelatine
  • 2 1/2 cups boiling water
  • 8 x 11 baking dish

Here’s what you do.

  1. Mix the ingredients together very well in the baking dish.
  2. Refrigerate for about 3 hours to make sure it’s well hardened.

Then for the fun part, use cookie cutters to cut out fun shapes.


I recommend using good sharp cookie cutters. Mine are not very sharp so the cuts on our shapes were not as neat as I would have liked. Of course, the kids didn’t notice. They just thought it was fun to cut and eat the shapes. 🙂

And now for this week’s menu plan…
