I haven’t posted one of these in a while. I’m still making my menu’s just haven’t been putting them out here (or even putting them on the kitchen menu board for that matter. 😦 )
I think this winter weather is making me a lazy bumb. I’m keeping the house clean and have even given up my weekly Saturday morning grocery store jaunt just so I don’t have to get out of bed and fight the snow. Anyway I hope you guys get inspired by my menu…please share yours, I could use ideas (especially hearty soups for the winter – but please no soups with beans I acquired a bad taste of those after one of my summers with my grandmother when I was 9.). So here we go:
Sunday – Salibury Steak with noodles (I know you are thinking why not potatoes, but I’m having potatoes on Saturday and if you remember, my actual menu starts on Saturday so we won’t be having potatoes back-to-back :)) I think I would like to add some type of greens with this so I may pick up some on Saturday afternoon from Kroger (they have the best greens pricing) – maybe a collard/mustard mix.
Monday: Soup & Sandwich day!!! – My version of a Minestrone without beans and Rachel’s or Ham & Cheese for Babydoll.
Tuesday – Asian Beef & Broccoli…I plan to serve these with homemade egg rolls and potstickers if I can dedicate myself to make them ahead of time on Monday. I not then we’ll have the store bought version.
Wednesday – Pasta and Sauce – Stan loves this and I will make plain pasta for Babydoll and add some smoked sausage (she stays away from tomato sauce as much as possible because it aggravates her re-flux), I’ll fix a salad and garlic bread to accompany it.
Thursday: Pan-fried Tilapia and rice and either fruit salad or steamed broccoli
Friday – Not sure…I’m hoping I can talk Stan into taking us out if the weather cooperates. If not, I maybe make a quick taco salad.
Saturday – Pork chops with pears, Twice-cooked roasted potatoes and spinach.
The dessert that I will make for the week is an Apple Crisp/Cobbler with French Vanilla Ice Cream.
On a side note: I have been craving Rice Krispy Treats since I watched an episode of Unique Sweets (does anyone else love that show); so I will be making about 5 different versions of Treats on Saturday. My goal is to take pictures and post how they turn out. Look for it some time next week.
Also…I have been working on post about the basement remodel. I believe I will break it down into about five or six parts. I’m writing the entire post and will then break it down once I’ve finished it.
Have a great weekend guys.
