Weekly Menu 3/28-4/3

I have been in a cooking slump lately. Not sure why, but I have been. Maybe I should blame it on the changing of the seasons. You know, the time's changed (back to daylight saving time), the days have gotten longer, the temps are getting warmer and it's actually pleasant outside, and I long to spend more time outside working in my garden and playing in the dirt. It's time to move from the heavy, stick-to-your-ribs meals of winter to the lighter, less labor intensive, less heat in the kitchen producing meals.

The Husband (God bless him!) has been doing most of the cooking and that's getting really! I've been tinkering with the idea of a weekly menu, but I'll be the first to admit, I'm not good at sticking to any kind of plan. This morning while emptying the dishwasher and putting away the rest of the groceries from yesterday's trip to Sam's and the grocery store that The Husband made, I decided on a few meals I'd like to cook this week. Maybe if I write them down and post them, it'll actually happen!

Here's my plan for this week. Some of these recipes are new, so if they pass muster, I'll post them for you to all enjoy.

Sunday~Amish Chicken, some kind of green beans, and either rice or some kind of potato dish. Peach cobbler for dessert.

Monday~Grilled hamburgers w/ fixins and pork & beans

Tuesday~Leftovers (working the closing shift)

Wednesday~Crock Pot Roast w/ veggies



Saturday~Beef soup/stew with leftover roast

There you have it folks! We'll see if I stick to it!
