menu plan monday ~ may 14, 2012

I hope you enjoyed a Happy Mother’s Day. We had a good day with all our kids home except our younger son and his wife. But I was able to talk to him on the phone. Always good to hear his voice. DH brought his mother over from the nursing home and she enjoyed the backyard garden and our traditional Mother’s Day treat of strawberry shortcake. We took a four-generations picture while everyone was here. As you might guess from the picture, the fourth generation was not so excited about having a picture taken.

Now to think about the menu for the week.

Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry

Chicken Caesar Pasta Casserole with homemade Caesar Croutons
Garden Salad
Steamed Green Beans
Corn on the Cob

Baked Dijon Salmon
Accordion Potatoes
Garden Salad

Chef Salad

Homemade Pizza

Spicy Shredded Pork ~ 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
Veggies and Ranch Dip

Sunday ~ Church Spring Picnic at our house
Cheesy Potato Sausage Casserole (scroll down to bottom of post for casserole directions)
Homemade Rolls
Cookie Sheet Pie
