Menu Monday

It's been a few days since I posted, sorry. It was another busy weekend, and the batteries in my camera were dead so, no pictures and no time! I did get a wonderful bonus at work Friday. Most of it went to debt payment and savings, along with our tax return, but Hubby and I did go shopping Saturday. And I got a carpet cleaner (Woohoo!! More on that later), and supplies to put a clothesline up in our bathtub upstairs. I also used a little to get some household supplies I had been putting off, so it was used wisely. I will post a financial update this week tool

As usual, last week's menu got a little mixed up, but worked wonderfully for the most part. The pork loin lasted longer than I anticipated so we at the rest of that Sunday for dinner instead of spaghetti. Yesterday I got more pizza dough made. This time I used a new recipe that utilized the yellow corn flower that I got. We'll see how that works out. I also made a batch of smoked sausage soup and some yummy chocolate pudding.

The last loaf of frozen bread was pulled from the freezer Friday and cut into Sunday. I toasted a few pieces to make some open-faced sandwiches with the pork roast. I warmed the roast, shredded it and then cleaned out the last bits of barbecue sauce from the bottle with some chicken stock and stirred it all up. I was delicious!!! I promised recipes for the pork chops ad pork loin, and I will get them up, I promise.

Now for the menu:

Monday - spaghetti with meat sauce and garlic toast
Tuesday - pork chops in a creamy dijon sauce with quinoa and asparagus
Wednesday - Panko chicken (at Hubby's request) and noodles
Thursday - Potato soup (and Chili in crockpot for lunch)
Friday - Pot Roast with potatoes and carrots
Saturday - we will be out all day. Basketball in the morning, a birthday party at lunch and another birthday party for dinner. No cooking, no cleaning, nothing constructive :(
Sunday - pizza

And finally, I will be ordering seeds today! When I'm done, I'll get a list up here. Then some real discussion :) I will also be starting to read the book "Let It Rot", so I'm sure that will gain me some valuable insight to share with the world.

Happy Monday everyone!
