menu plan monday ~ september 26, 2016

I’ve had another busy week. Older Daughter and Middle Daughter helped me can 21 jars of spiced apple slices, plus two quarts we put in the fridge for immediate enjoyment.


I am working on beefing up the inventory for my Etsy shop before the Christmas season arrives. I’ve posted some new Christmas card shadow boxes to the shop and plan to post some new spool ornaments tomorrow. My Christmas Tree Lot Putz sold, so I need to make a few more to post on Etsy. I would like to get at least one of those done this week.

I am used to cooking for a lot of people, but now there are only three of us here at the house. Youngest Daughter is in and out, but mostly out, as she is in college. We have too many leftovers, so I have planned some big meals and then Fridge Food days to use the leftovers. Perhaps that will help! I’d rather do that than cook for two or three every day. It’s more fun to be in the craft room! Here’s the menu for the week.

Tortilla Chips
Lettuce, Sour Cream, Tomatoes

Fridge Food

Grilled Pork Steaks
Grilled Chicken
Roasted Veggies in Foil

Chicken Tortellini Soup
Toasted Sourdough Bread

Fridge Food

Roast Beef in the Crock Pot
with New Potatoes and Carrots
Steamed Green Beans

The recipe for the Roast Beef calls for it to be oven-roasted. And it is fabulous that way. But it is also delicious made in the Crock Pot, so that’s the way we are going to roll this week. Put in the meat. Put in the other ingredients. Cook on low for eight hours. Faster to prepare, easier to cook, still tastes wonderful!

    I cook big meals then have ‘help yourself’ nights with the leftovers.
