This Week In Our Kitchen: Week of December 11th

So much for planning a menu last week, it pretty much got scrapped. When I sent my husband to the store for the pork for the carnitas he came home with an additional pork roast and a whole chicken which he wanted to smoke, so … we had a smoked chicken one night, and we are having the smoked pork roast today.

With the cold weather of December, January and February I am planning a series on soups, stews and chilis, so you will probably see a few soups, stews and chilis on my menu over the next few weeks with the recipes coming in January. You will also be able to see a few of my soup recipes on Destiny In Bloom in January as well. If you have any soup, stew or chili recipes you think I should try please leave it in the comments below.

Speaking of Destiny In Bloom, last Monday my latest article posted in Real Life Matters. I would love for you to go take a look. It is a tutorial on making a Strawberry Christmas Tree Centerpiece. It is really pretty and smells wonderful.

Here is what we will be eating at our house this week.

Sunday: Smoked Pork Roast, Cheesy Grits and Roasted Asparagus

Monday: Grilled Ham and Cheese Sandwiches with Creamy Tomato Soup

Tuesday: Chicken Pot Pie and California Cheese Soup

Wednesday: Slow Cooked Chicken Tortilla Soup

Thursday: Texas Two Step Pork Chops, Dill Potato Salad and Chipotle Corn on the Cob (I will be adding the Texas Two Step Pork Chops to my blog later this week.)

Friday: Leftovers

Saturday: Fish and Chips

As recipes are posted on Kitchen and Kids, I will link them up to my menu plans, so if something interests you check back and see if I’ve posted a recipe.

You can find other wonderful ideas at the links below.
