Monday’s Menu- For A Whole New Year!

Happy New Year dear readers!! I hope that you had a wonderful time ringing in the new year. Brian and I are the ones who stay home, watch movies until 12:00, kiss goodnight and are in bed by 12:05.

Or, as our kids would say- old. But it was sure relaxing and easy!

Now I’ve gotta get used to writing 2012…wonder what it will bring?

I know what will be the same as 2011 (and 2010 before that) – making a menu because it helps keep me sane. And we all like that around here.

Plus, we went a bit over the food budget for December, *uh-hem* so we’ll be eating from the pantry as much as possible. And one thing I’ve learned from past “pantry challenges” is that there has to be a plan.

Monday- Rose Bowl Appetizers…GO DUCKS!!!

Tuesday- Slow cooked pork shoulder (got any good recipes?), roasted potatoes and carrots, Roasted Beet and Goat Cheese salad

Wednesday- Gourmet Bean Soup (made with leftover ham bone), Easy Artisan Bread, vegetable plate

Thursday- Spaghetti (made with our frozen Roasted Tomato Sauce), green salad

Friday- Feta-Spinach Frittata-made like this, but with spinach and no sausage, (topped with Addictive Tomato Chutney), Quick and Tender Breadsticks, caramelized onions

Saturday- Pigs-in-a-blanket (Q&T Breadstick dough wrapped around uncured dogs), carrot sticks, oven fries

Sunday- Leftovers & Sunday Tea






  1. Oooh, tomato chutney sounds yummy!
