menu plan monday ~ august 22, 2011

Our oldest daughter brought a kitten home from the camp where she worked this summer. Cedar and Amy didn’t hit it off at once and are still a little hissy, but they are beginning to play together.

They’ve been fun to watch. Their antics and growly fits make us laugh. I think they’ll be fast friends in another few days.

DD is not feeling well today, so she is watching Dr. Who while resting on the couch. Oldest daughter is doing the grocery shopping. We plan to clean out and organize the pantry this afternoon. At least take a stab at it. First, I need to clean out the fridge. Do not enjoy that job, but it needs to be done. First order of business…a sink full of hot sudsy water.

Here’s the menu for the week…I’m heading for the kitchen.

Homemade Flour Tortillas

Parmesan Crusted Pork Chops
Baby Caprese Salad
Baby Baked Potatoes
Steamed Asparagus

Grilled Chicken
Veggie Packets in Foil
Sweet and Sour Cucumber Slices
Corn on the Cob

Julie’s Fake Baked Ziti
Garlic Bread
Garden Salad

Hamburgers / Homemade Buns
Veggies with Ranch Dip
Red Grapes

Fridge Food

Turkey in the Crock Pot
Mashed Potatoes
Steamed Green Beans
Corn on the Cob
Green Salad

Later this week…it’s that time of year…time to try some new recipes for our annual Christmas Open House. I’ve decided to take a few long-used recipes off the menu and replace them with some new recipes. For those of you anticipating Open House treats, this means the Nutmeg Logs and the Sugar Cookie Crisps. Both are great recipes, but I want to try something new. This week we’ll make Mocha Truffles. I’ll let you know how they come out.

You’ll find more menu and recipe ideas at Menu Plan Monday.
