(See below for what last week was and what we actually did for supper).

Monday: Easy Spaghetti with sauce

Tuesday: Potato Soup

Wednesday: NEW RECIPE - (Recycled from last 2 weeks) Stuffed Chicken Rolls with Gravy from Miss Vickie's pressure cooker cookbook. Page 236. Gonna keep this on the menu until we give it a try!

Thursday: NEW RECIPE - Yakatori (marinated, grilled sirloin steak kabobs), oriental green beans, egg drop soup and rice. (Recipes from allrecipes.com and cooks.com)

Friday: Home made pizza - C'Mon garden! One more round of green peppers and tomatoes! Please?!?

Saturday: Cracker Crust Chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy, corn.

Sunday: Beef and noodles with mashed potaotes (slow cook roast starting in the morning).

Monday: Tacos - Planned it, made em. Ate 'em! With fresh salsa to boot!

Tuesday: NEW RECIPE - Grilled steaks, fried potatoes, velveeta mac n cheese, green beans. I used the Outback Steakhouse marinade from a copycat recipe book. It was wayyyyyy yummy!

Wednesday: Spaghetti & Meatballs with french bread - Littlest daughter thought Pepper Steak sounded better. So that's what we did (pulled from Sunday)! Took the opportunity to let the girls help measure chop (w/supervision) and stir. They were very proud of supper that night and ate really well!

Thursday: Chicken Enchiladas - These turned out yummy, even though I left the oven on BROIL!!! (I turn it onto that to preheat and forgot to switch it down! ACK!!) Thank gooness the rack was low enough, just the cheese got crispy, just the way I like it! These rock! Especially the next day for lunch!

Friday: Chicken fried rice and crab rangoon - Ended up out shopping. Suprised the girls and took them out to Red Robin. Sat on the patio. It was wonderful! I had a chicken apple salad with goat cheese and walnuts. Amazing how sitting outside, you can taste everthing totallyy seperate really strong. It was cool!

Saturday: NEW RECIPE - (Recycled from last week) Stuffed Chicken Rolls with Gravy from Miss Vickie's pressure cooker cookbook. Page 236. Gonna give this one a try! - Went out to see "Cloudy with a chance of Meatballs" Ate real quick at a local burger place.

Sunday: (Recycled from last week)Pepper Steak - Once of our faves this summer because it's easy and our garden is still crankin out the peppers! - Celebrated my birthday with some friends that invited us to their house for dinner. Good times!

Have a great week everyone!


  1. I've been trying to add in new recipes too, the Yakatori sounds good.

  2. I really like the way you post your reviews. How was the movie? I'm thinking of taking my grandson. Come share your slow cooker recipes at Crock Pot Wednesday hosted by diningwithdebbie.blogspot.com. I would love to see you there. Thanks for posting.
