menu plan monday ~ may 28, 2012

There are so many things going on in the garden right now. We make the rounds every day to see how many daylilies have opened their first flowers of the season. They are blooming about three weeks earlier than they every have before. We’re planning a plant sale for Saturday, so we’re taking a mental inventory of what will be available as we walk the yard.

The hydrangeas have been especially pretty this year. This particular shrub has a wide variety of color on it, from pale pink through deep pinky-red to blue and on to purple. All on the same bush. Just beautiful.


With a lot going on, I’m posting a quick menu for the week.

Sunday Leftovers

Memphis BBQ and all the fixin’s

Garden Salad

Tortellini Alfredo ~ I’ll use milk instead of cream and thicken it with some flour. Might add a dash of Tabasco sauce and a little lemon juice, as well.
Garden Salad
Homemade Rolls

Spicy Shredded Pork ~ I make it in the crock pot. Put the meat in and dump everything in on top. No need to mix. Easy and delicious.
Homemade Buns
Garden Salad
Fruit Salad

Leftovers for lunch
Homemade pizza for supper

Baked Chicken
Oven Fried Potato Wedges
Garden Salad
Steamed Sugar Snap Peas
