Menu Monday 5/10/2010 I’m back

Heather says:

I’m back from the land of nod! Well mostly, still a little slow, but getting better all the time.  First up, let’s take care of the who won the Classic Southern Desserts cookbook. chose commenter #4, more formally known as Melinda. Congratulations and watch your inbox for an email asking for your mailing address. I promise, I’m way too busy to do any serious stalking.

I have honestly missed adding recipes to this site. Sure, it’s a giant pain in the rear to juggle cooking, taking photos, and writing down my random recipe tweaks, but it’s my kind of fun. Yeah, yeah not normal, I’ve heard it all before.

My diet is still restricted to tender foods. /sigh

  • Monday – Stewed chicken, risotto  (this is an experiment, it may or may not show up on the site), wilted spinach
  • Tuesday – C.O.R.N.
  • Wednesday – Pot roast, carrots & celery, mashed potatoes
  • Thursday – Mini cottage pies (hello Mr. Muffin tin), mushy peas (maybe, I reserve the right to chicken out of this one, for no other reason than mint isn’t my favorite)
  • Friday – Return of Homemade Pizza Night (Pizza crust, pizza sauce)
  • Saturday – C.O.R.N.
  • Sunday – Turkey and dumpling soup, tossed salad (if I’m up for raw vegetables by then)

While I’ve done a lot of my recuperating while goofing around online, I feel as though I ‘ve been out of touch and need to catch up.

What’s for dinner?

    Hamburger gravy over smash potatoes with corn
    pork loin and rice
    … that is all I have so far, I might have other ideas, but I do not want to make any one cringe

    Tonight – fish sandwiches w/ frozen breaded fillets and homemade tartar sauce. My son wishes I'd let him have three of these at a time, but I limit him to two.

    If I had a grill I'd be using it every day. Every. Single. Day. Makes meals so much easier.

    chicken leg quarters were pulled from the freezer this morning. not sure what will be done with them yet but perhaps something grill-y

    You mean I have to cook, too? *giggle*

    What are mushy peas?

    • Alice Dick on May 10, 2010 at 7:31 pm

      Mushy peas are British, at least in their original form. They are available canned in England (I have had them). They are slightly different from regular green peas, starchier, are cooked for a longer period and then mashed. Often flavored with mint. You could consider them a variant on refried beans, perhaps.

    Hamburger Helper (I know…… )
    Potato Soup
    Meatball subs
    BBQ pork sandwiches
    and as many leftovers as I can get my family to eat. 🙂

    P.S. Sent you an email a minute ago. Hope it helps.

      I'm not in a place to judge. I've been surviving on Ensure and popsicles, starting on Thursday noodles and buttered bread were added to the rotation. Whee!

        LOL Well, my daughter helped me plan the menus for this week. So, if she'll eat it, I'll fix it. LOL

    Welcome back. That's the second pot roast I've seen this Menu Monday. It's making me really hungry for pot roast!

    • Nancy Cox on May 10, 2010 at 1:27 pm
