What's For Supper?

All of us managing a home probably run into the same thing. I'm tired of the same old thing, what can I cook? It's fun to swap menu ideas, recipes, time/money saving ideas, etc. So, in that spirit I thought I might share our menu. What's on yours this week?

Leftovers: Santa fe soup for adults, homemade pizza for children

Pasta e fagioli, salad, breadsticks

Roasted crockpot chicken, stovetop stuffing, blackeye peas with corn

I'll be using the leftover chicken to make:
chicken pot pie, salad

Grilled cumin pork loin, grilled avocado stuffed with apple-chipotle salsa, rice

I'll be using the leftover pork to make:
Mexican green chilie stew, pork enchiladas, and BBQ sandwiches


  1. YUMMY! :) We didn't end up going to the grocery store this weekend, so I only have a few meals left for this week. Sunday night we had- homemade beef stew/cornbread. Monday night- Fried cube steak,baked potatoes,corn. Tonight I have a Pampered Chef meeting, so we'll have soup and sandwiches. Wednesday- Spaghetti w/ meatballs (homemade spag sauce/meatballs), salad, beadsticks .....Thursday or Friday prob homemade pizza. I found a yummy recipe for Mushroom Beef Melts, Bistro Potatoes & Tomato Bacon Beans that I want to try! I am always looking for new recipes also that are def. budget friendly!

  2. Hey Tiffany! That sounds like some yummy comfort food at your house! You know the thing about the pork is that it costs an average of $12 which seemed a bit high, at least at our house. But then I bought one on sale and realized just how many meals I could get from it. It stretches better than a chicken!

Must have jinxed that...

So I said in my last post that so far the new recipes had been well received. Last night's meal...not so much. I should have known better than to say that  LOL! I liked it well enough and so did my youngest daughter. But the husband wasn't so fond of it. It was a Mediterranean recipe that had whole wheat rotini, grilled salmon, tomato, artichoke, olives and garlic. It also called for white wine but I used chicken broth instead. I think we are going to try it one more time with a few tweaks. Maybe a half box of noodles instead of a full box and add some canned tomatoes. I even thought about using quinoa instead of noodles since we all love it. I think extra artichokes and olives might be good, too. If that doesn't work, then this one will be discarded. It's funny but my husband hasn't been too crazy about any Mediterranean recipe I've ever tried through the years. When you look at the separate ingredients, he ought to love them. And the heart health aspect makes…

A Little Peek into Our Life Lately

Are you like me, wondering where summer went? It's passed by so quickly. Dance and soccer will start again next week. Yet, at the same time, there are days when I think autumn will never get here. Yesterday when we sat outside in the early morning and it cool and breezy. Yet it didn't have that fall feeling to it. I don't know about other areas of the States but in the South there is a certain feel to the weather, a certain way the sun and sky look, a certain scent to the air that tell you fall is on its way. I only wish it lasted a little longer!

We've been working on organizing our school room. Organization. Does it ever end?! It seems as though about the time I think I have things perfectly organized and running smoothly, I find a glitch that makes me start all over. I hate to call this organization prompt a glitch. He's certainly more important than that. :) It's my sweet boy. You see, he turned 4 in May and as such, is quite ready fo…

And so it begins...

Once again I find myself arranging ballerina buns and finding missing tap shoes. A new year of dance has begun and my girls could hardly contain their excitement.

The fun of pulling socks over shin guards is also here. The only difference is that it is now my sweet boy that is playing soccer. They can start at the age of 3 here and he was excited to play last year. But when he arrived for his first practice he balked and retreated to the safety of Mama's arms. He was barely 3 at the time and was even still in a pull-up so we really weren't surprised. This year, however, he was ready! Funny how they can seem so big at home and look so tiny on the field! He did quite well at his first practice though. I had no doubt he would. From the time he took his first steps he would grab a ball and dribble all over the yard. (Dribbling in soccer is when you see them lightly kick the ball to move it around the field. Very important skill as they must be capable of maintaining control over t…
