Menu Monday!

We are having some beautiful weather here in the PNW and that makes my Monday even better. I have a walk and garden work in my plans for today. It will be raining again in a couple of days and I figure it would be better to do my grocery shopping then.

Tonight's dinner will reflect the fact that I'll be outside most of the day! :) I have some orange chicken and egg rolls in the freezer (thanks to Costco) and either some fruit or a salad will go with this.. I'll figure that part out when I get there.

Last week I tried something new to me. I made cream cheese. It turned out good but not quite what I wanted so I'll be tweaking it and trying again soon. In the mean time I had a huge amount of cream cheese to use up. So instead of one of my planned meals I made alfredo sauce with meatballs, it turned out yummy. This week I plan to share my cream cheese making with you.

For now here is the plan for the rest of the week..

Ham & Cheese Bread, tomato soup
This was on the menu last week and did not get made. It is a variation from my pepperoni bread recipe. I'll use ham and cheddar cheese instead. I have some tomato soup base that I canned up last summer and plan to use that to go with the bread. And of course I like to add fresh veggies to most meals so a green salad or a veggie platter will also be on the menu.

Crockpot chicken & stuffing
This is a recipe I found on the internet. Looked simple, quick and easy. It does use boxed stuffing which I rarely use but every now and again it can make life run a bit more smooth. I'll serve green beans on the side. I'll share it if it turns out good.

BBQ chicken legs
I guess this warm weather streak has me thinking summer like foods. So baking a pan of chicken legs w/bbq sauce and serving baked beans and macaroni salad with it sounds like the perfect summer time meal. It will probably be raining the day I make this, but it will keep me hopeful that summer is just around the corner.

That should do it for this week!!
