Menu Plan Monday - Dec. 17 to 23

 

Happy Monday everyone, this is what's on the menu for this week. As always remember that some days I switch meals around or end up not making them if something comes up, but for the most part I stick to everything on here INCLUDING breakfast and lunch.

If you want to join in with your own menu or take a look at all the other ladies participating, I suggest you grab a cup of coffee....a HUGE one LOL and then head over to Laura's blog "I'm an Organizing Junkie", there's so much yummy stuff being shared I'm sure you'll find inspiration for your next week's menus too.

I've started using themes to help me plan the menus because at times I find myself completely at a loss on what to make.......

MONDAY -

TUESDAY -

WEDNESDAY - Portuguese Meals (All the ones I grew up eating)

THURSDAY - Slow Cooking Day

FRIDAY - Pizza Night

SATURDAY - Easy Day

SUNDAY - Soups

Specials this past week:  The Homemade Caramels are TO DIE FOR.........I've had to ask Curt to hide them from me because I'm bound to eat them all, they're THAT addictive.  If you want to make some for yourself or to give as gifts (like I'm doing) the recipe is below this post.

  5. I'm 1/2 portuguese...mom's full. I never grew up with anything portugues though; no language, no traditions, no food. I think I'll check out your recipes and maybe try a few.

  12. I kept reading and kept saying "mmmmm" "oh! mmmmmmm" LOL! I wish I could make a potpie look that pretty :) Maybe I'll try it after the holidays! I love them in this cold weather. (sorry!)

    All of the Portuguese food always looks delicious! I loved the Estofado -- and today a friend of mine was talking about making some type of Portuguese rice with green peppers, onions, tomatoes, garlic -- I can't remember the rest, but it sounded wonderful!
