Monday:  Sliced Baked Potatoes, Steamed Vegetables, and Salad

Tuesday:  Mississippi Pot Roast with Cheese Grits

Wednesday:  Japanese Curry with Rice

Thursday:  Pulled Pork Sandwiches with Claussen Spicy Pickles and Sweet Tots

Meal Plan Monday #106

I'm actually writing this post on Friday, because I am sitting in my office dreaming about what I haven't cooked in a while and what I want to cook up next week. Now that it isn't quite so miserably hot, I want to eat all the foods I haven't eaten all summer because it's been too dang hot to cook them. And I have buttermilk in the refrigerator that I want to use.

I made some DELICIOUS, FLUFFY cornbread last week. It was so good - I used homemade baking powder (2 t. cream of tartar + 1 t. baking soda) and buttermilk and it rose up so beautifully, I wish I had taken a picture. I froze the leftovers for a future batch of dressing. I will probably make another batch this week so that I'll have enough cornbread for dressing, and because we have most of a half-gallon of buttermilk in the refrigerator, and I don't want it to go to waste.

SUNDAY:  Country Fried Steak, Mashed Potatoes, Black-eyed Peas, and Cornbread

MONDAY:  Twice-baked Potatoes with Broccoli and Cheese

TUESDAY:  Buttermilk Fried Chicken, Lima Beans, Roasted Eggplant, and Biscuits

WEDNESDAY:  Pepperoni, Mushroom, and Jalapeno Pizza and Salad

THURSDAY:  Chicken and Sausage Pasta with Salad

FRIDAY:  Date Night! Lib's Pick!

Meal Plan Monday #103

Wow! We've been gone for a long time. A lot has happened in the weeks we've been missing. We sold our house in Arizona. It was sad - our first house. But I have started a new job that I love! I'm working harder than I've worked in a while, but I love the school and the kids! And my new co-workers couldn't be more amazing!

Now that we're getting settled in our new digs, it's time to start cooking up some dishes! And since I'm back at work, meal planning is a must for me.

Sunday:  Fried Pork Chops, Slow Stewed Snap Beans, Mashed Sweet Potatoes, and Cornbread

Monday:  Hamburgers with Grilled Peppers, Onions, and Mushrooms, and Sweet Potato Tots

Tuesday:  Broccoli and Cheese Baked Potatoes

Wednesday:  Darren's Japanese Curry with Rice

Thursday:  Chicken Fajitas with Homemade Tortillas from the Farmers Market

Friday: Date Night! Darren's Pick!
