menu plan monday ~ september 4, 2017

September is here before I am ready to give up summer. But this month does have its own beauty. Our weather is usually the best in September and October. Lovely cool days with blue skies. Sunny but not hot.

Saturday I enjoyed taking some pictures of the butterflies on the garlic chives. The blossoms were covered in butterflies, little moths, bees and wasps.

The Jerusalem Artichokes are just starting their bloom time. These make pretty fall bouquets.

I combined them with ‘Becky’ daisies for the Sunday bouquet.

I had a very quiet week last week due to Youngest Daughter going back to college and Middle Daughter out of state to visit friends. I spent the time working on Putz orders and some organization projects. I didn’t post a menu last week, but here’s this week’s plan.

Fridge Food
Roasted Cabbage Slices with Bacon

Roast Beef in the Instant Pot with Potatoes and Onions / I brown the beef in a large hot skillet with a generous dose of cumin, salt and pepper before adding it to the Instant Pot.
Steamed Broccoli with Butter
Garden Salad

5-Layer Mexican Dip Bowls

Fridge Food

Cobb Salad

Cheesy Burgers
Pork Rinds and Guacamole
Sweet and Sour Cucumber Slices

Baby Back Ribs in the Instant Pot
Loaded Cauliflower and Broccoli
Garden Salad

After today, our temps are supposed to cool down to 75-80 for the next few weeks. Some of that lovely weather I’ve been looking forward to! I hope your week is a good one. Making a menu plan will go a long way toward making that happen! Give it a try and see how much it eases meal time at your house.
