Extreme Makeover/ Menu Plan Monday

by Lora on November 9, 2009 at 3:57 pm

As you can see my blog has gone through an extreme makeover. Lindsay has been working on it for several weeks and was finally able to get it up after battling many tendon issues in her hands. The picture in my banner is one that Lindsay took at the Katy Heritage Park. Historic homes are located in the park and you are able to tour them on the first weekend of the month. Back in August a few of us went by to look at the homes, and when we saw the kitchen of the Stockdick house, we loved it. I loved the vintage canisters and other features, so when we began looking for a banner photo this seemed perfect. Red is my absolute favorite color, which made the choice even easier.

I have been working on planning and organizing, trying to prepare for the winter season of asthma with the girls. I have been working on menus for breakfast, lunch and dinner. This week I am only posting my menu for dinner, as I don’t have the others completed as of yet. I am trying to come up with frugal, healthy breakfast and lunch ideas, so if you have any, please share.

Monday: Chicken and Dumplings with Biscuits (I’m using homemade stock & I hope to post the recipe later this week)

Tuesday: King Ranch Chicken & Ranch Style Beans

Wednesday: Crockpot Pork Chops over Rice, Cabbage, & Butter Beans

Thursday: Baked Ziti with Homemade Sauce & Garlic Bread

Friday: Chicken Stuffing Casserole, Maple Sweet Potatoes & Apples, Corn

Saturday: lunch: Bar-b-que Pork Roast Sandwiches, French Fries & Okra
dinner: leftovers

Make sure that you drop by Laura’s blog to get more menu ideas.
