Menu Plan Monday

No more CSA treats.... a sad sign that winter is on it's way! I also have a goal that I want to re-pot some of my herb plants into indoor pots so I don't lose them- I loved having fresh herbs all summer long! Not quite ready to give that up!

Sunday: Oven fried Chicken, Collards (My first attempt at this southern staple, with a little different but highly rated recipe), fruit salad, Spaghetti Squash (I'll coat and pan fry the chicken first and then toss in the oven to finish cooking

Monday: Puff Puff Pancake, melon

Tuesday: Flank Steak, Garlic Rosemary Potatoes, Salad

Wednesday: Scott Cooks. Crock pot ham and bean soup (from my 15 year old Betty Crocker cookbook), rolls

Thursday: Scott Cooks. Tacos, grapes

Friday: Butternut- Jalapeno Mac and Cheese, Salad, grapes (Of course, when asked if he likes it, Scott will respond, "it could have used some meat in it..." Silly anti-vegetarian man! Does it really matter if there's meat in it as long as it tastes good?)

Saturday: Nephew's birthday Party? Wedding Dress Shopping with my baby sister?

I also made the best brownie treats on Sunday and SO easy! Also check out the recipe for Nutella Rice Krispie treats that I made last week- I swear it tastes like a toostie roll!


  1. I've been wanting to move some herbs indoors, too - I SO miss them in the winter! (I guess I'd better get to it, huh?) I've got the perfect garden window in the kitchen for it too - although the cat won't appreciate being displaced.

  2. just curious...what's a puff puff pancake?

  3. Puff Puff Pancake is basically a dutch oven pancake... 3 eggs, 1/2 c flour, 1/2 c milk, pinch of salt and some butter in the pie plate... I usually toss a little cinnamon and vanilla in my batter too! I grew up eating it as puff puff pancake- usually when my dad was working late- and now, I typically cook it for my boys- usually when Scott is out with his friends!
