Smokey Goodness (and Menu Plan Monday!)

Last summer, we bought Big Daddy a smoker.  We smoked pork and brisket and it was good. Big Daddy liked it so much, he bought a better, more efficient smoker and it was REALLY good.  We’ve had smoked pork shoulders so delicious that I was actually sad that there were no left overs the next […]

Menu Plan Monday 2011-Week 21

Can you believe that in a little more of a week, we’ll have lived in our new house, in our town in, in our own state for a year!  While, there’s a post about that in here somewhere, it meant it was time to readdress my freezer. Last summer, our chest freezer died.  In the […]

Menu Plan Monday 2011-Week 20

It was probably obvious from last week’s menu plan that we were out of town over the weekend and if I haven’t mentioned that May was going to be a very busy month for us, let me mention it now.  We’re BUSY. Exceedingly.  And after a rather whirlwind trip to Chicago for the wedding of […]

Working the Menu Plan-It’s Monday!

Last week I figured out that, yes, menu planning IS worth the time and effort even though I REALLY hate to admit it. (Really REALLY!!)   And then, I realized that using my crock pot really helped to stream line dinner.   I know what you’re thinking–you’ve been married 11 years and a mom for […]

Menu Plan Monday

This week’s theme seems to be pork.  When I inventoried the freeze this weekend, I found out that we had 11 more dinners. I think half are pork chops.  Seriously. Well, not really, but…I think three of them are.  I have no idea where all the damn pork came from, but there it is.  In […]

It’s Monday and that means….

It’s Monday again.  We had a busy week last week with the Princess’s birthday and an out of town trip to celebrate.  I love the estivities, but it means that my usual weekend tasks of menu planning and grocery shopping have been put off until today. This week, I’m going to be cooking from “Dinner […]

Menu Plan Monday

Can I say that Once a Month cooking rocks!  I can?  Sweet.  It does and I just said it.  I probably said it last week too,but I’m saying it again.  I thought that spending two weeks cooking and doubling meals made the two weeks off worth it, but in truth, that was totally counter productive […]
