menu plan monday ~ june 8, 2015

Hello, all. Thanks to those who have said hello and asked how I was doing. I hope I’m back up to par and able to keep up the blog again. I’ve missed posting, but haven’t had the energy or will to work at it. But things are looking up and here I am. I’ll start with the menu for the week. It’s the one post that usually keeps me going, but I’ve even neglected it lately.

Homemade Pizza with hamburger and mushroom

Spicy Shredded Pork Sandwiches
Veggies and Dip

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.

Chicken Tortellini Soup

Toppings / Sour Cream / Lettuce / Tomatoes
Homemade Baked Tortilla Chips

Ham and Turkey Sandwiches

Fridge Food

Crunchy Baked Pork Chops
Mashed Potatoes
Creamy Mushroom Bake
Green Beans

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

We’ve been enjoying new kittens at our house. More about them soon.

    Glad to see you back. I was concerned. We live in Phoenix, and your blog showed my daughters what spring is like- the rejoicing after the cold- a foreign concept for them! When we visited my family in Central Illinois, by 9YO DD said of the flowers, “it’s just like the Christmas lady!” Thank you for sharing your lovely garden. The desert has its beauty, but nothing like your yard!

    Sherry, the fact that my blog posts are teaching and giving some pleasure at the same time is very nice to know. 🙂 Thank you for telling me. It gave me an encouraging thrill to read your note 🙂 Tell you daughters hello from the Christmas lady!
