menu plan monday ~ february 13, 2012

Here’s a pretty plant that my mother passed on to me last year. She got her start of it from her uncle’s home. It’s an orange amaryllis, Hippeastrum striatum, I believe. Correction is appreciated, if anyone knows it is something else. It blooms in January/February, each year.

Down to business…here’s our menu for the week.

Homemade Buns
Stir Fried Cabbage and Garlic
Oven Fried Potato Wedges

Pork Chop and Potato Casserole
Green Salad
Crock Pot Apples
Steamed Sugar Snap Peas

Spicy Shredded Pork in the Crock Pot ~ I follow the pork recipe’s ingredient list, but I don’t blend them. I put the roast in the crock pot and throw everything in on top. I know it’s not the same as roasting it, so it’s different than the meat the original recipe would produce, but it’s still delicious! And easier.
Homemade Buns
Home-baked Tortilla Chips
Celery and Carrot Sticks

Mongolian Beef with Broccoli

Homemade Pizza

Dinner with extended family. I’m providing:
Spicy Shredded Pork
Alton Brown’s Pot Roast
Homemade Buns

Crock Pot Turkey
Mashed Potatoes
Steamed Green Beans
Green Salad

    The Spicy Shredded Pork recipe sounds delicious. I may buy a pork shoulder this weekend. They’re so affordable.
    You have a wonderful and yummy week!
    Happy Valentine’s Day!

    After the party, I layered left over pulled pork in freezer containers, dividing it into individual portions with wax paper. Dad told Margaret that he is really enjoying the meat, and that he likes it being able to pop out one serving at a time.
