What does your weekly menu look like? Do you make a weekly menu, a monthly one? I try too, I don’t always, I try to though. I think it’s the best way to plan out the week and I LOVE to cook and plan meals. If I had a ton of extra money I’d buy the best ingredients and cook until everyone around me was as big as a whale!
My week’s meals often look like this:
Pastor Ryan’s Mexican lasagna
Garlic bread (Texas toast at Wal Mart)
Apple pie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream
Yeast raised rolls from the Duggar family recipes
PW’s chocolate cake
Orange glazed carrots
Yeast raised biscuits
Leftover chocolate cake with a scoop of ice cream
Nachos with leftover brisket meat
Chocolate chip cookies
Bruschetta, turkey and cream cheese bagels
Sun chips with hummus
Smoked pork butt
Roasted roma tomatoes’
Pastor Ryan’s bread
Peach cake (Paula Deens cookbook)
That’s an idea of a normal week for us. If we’re having a busy week I might plan for French bread, or breakfast burritos, I might plan something easy like spaghetti or ham sandwiches. If I have a lot of time on my hands I might plan something I have never tried before like Ryan’s Carbonarra… I tried it though and it’s to die for!
I use LOTS of recipes from online; I have books and books of recipes too. I read them like stories, I love to read a good cook book. I have my old trusty favorites but try The Pioneer Woman’s recipes, seriously they are fool proof and delicious! I love the Duggar family recipes too, they are easy to make and simple ingredients.
Yes, I make a dessert almost every night. I know, I know... I probably shouldn't but I love to bake, I love the memories the kids and I are making by sitting around making desserts, and how they are excited to see whats following dinner, it's like a surprise each night. I love it, I doubt I will ever change. If you want dessert come on over!
