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!

But I don't want to!

I'm having an attitude problem. I'm looking around at what needs to be done. I have the desire for the work to be done but I have no desire to actually do the work! Therein lies the problem.
I think we could truthfully apply that to a lot of areas in our life.

We want our church to have "programs" but we don't want to actually work in them.

We want to be healthy but we don't want to work or sacrifice to get that way.

Same thing with weight...(don't even want to go there LOL!)

We want our children to behave, make good choices, etc but we are tired.

We want our homes to look nice but don't want to do housework, yardwork, work!

Ugh, so what to do, what to do? I'm telling myself the answer right now as I type.

Get over yourself! Sometimes you have to lay aside the selfish, less important desires and just do the harder thing in order to get results and have the real desires of your heart. I guess that's where I am headed now. I'm …

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…

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…
