This Week In Our Kitchen: Week of January 8th

Happy New Year! I know I am a bit late, but I just had to take last week off and recuperate. I am finding myself a bit tired these days in my last trimester so I am trying to take it easy. I think I am finally rested and ready to continue on. I am not entirely sure of my menu plan this week but at least I have a jumping off point.

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 and February. You will also be able to see a few of my soup recipes on Destiny In Bloom that went up yesterday, so please make sure to go take a look. You will find Sausage and Black Bean Soup, Peasant Soup, and Loaded Baked Potato Soup. If you have any soup, stew or chili recipes you think I should try please leave it in the comments below.

This last week I didn’t post a menu, nor did I make one. I went to my mom’s for some R and R for a few days, and when I got home I just pulled food from the freezer to warm up. By the weekend I was feeling much better, so I finally made my son his long awaited Fish and Chips, and I must say it was really good. The only thing I would suggest is whipping up some cole slaw to go with it, which didn’t cross my mind until I was done frying the fish. Oh well, next time.

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

Sunday: Eating at in-laws

Monday: Chicken Fried Steak, Mashed Potatoes, Seasoned Mustard Greens, and Yeast Rolls

Tuesday: Sour Cream Noodle Bake (This seems like a variation of my Cheesy Lasagna so I thought I’d give it a try.)

Wednesday: Chicken Noodle Soup

Thursday: BBQ Meatballs, Fried Smashed Potatoes, and veggies

Friday: 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.)

Saturday: TBD

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. On a side note, I received the cookbook – The Pioneer Woman Cooks, which is why so many of her recipes are posted this week. If I am ever at a loss for something to cook I just go and browse her cookbook and her site and I always find something delicious.

You can find other wonderful ideas at the links below.

    Those BBQ Meatballs over at Pioneer Woman looked fab-u-lous! I’ve enjoyed all the recipes I’ve tried on her site so far {have you tried her green bean casserole?} and I’m definitely going to be trying that one! Thanks for sharing.

    Just found your website, the recipes look great.
    I love soup in the winter, I must fix it every week. My girls and I usually fix “throw it in a pot” soups. Simple, warm, delicious and QUICK. A momma’s dream meal.
    I look forward to trying out some of your recipes-thanks for sharing!
