menu plan monday ~ september 1, 2014

I know. I know. It’s really September 4, but with Labor Day, then DH having Wednesday off, menu planning was waylaid. I’ve been working on some craft projects, too. And I have to confess, that is more fun than taking time to write a post. True confessions…crafting is lots of fun…

I am using some of the many Christmas cards I’ve been gifted with (thanks to all who have given me their old cards!) to make ornaments. I have made decoupage ones that use the pictures from the cards.

And I am now working on ornaments that use the card to make a small shadow box.

Those are getting better the more I make, as I work out techniques that make the process easier. I will post a tutorial soon.

Now the menu:

Leftover Chicken and Dumplings

Bacon, Tomato andLettuce Sandwich

Cheeseburger on Homemade Buns

Pork Chops in the Crockpot over
Potatoes and Carrots
Green 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.
Tangy Buttermilk Cheese Bread

Crock Pot Turkey
Brown Rice
Garden Salad
Corn on the Cob
Steamed Sugar Snap Peas

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

    I like the red cardinal ornament. Since there are none here in Oregon. I miss them.
