Well here it is Menu Monday -- Yes on Tuesday. But having a holiday on Monday always makes my week slightly off. So today really feels like Monday. It has already started being a kind of crazy week, but here we go anyways.
This Week MENU
Monday - Caribbean Pork Chops with Mango Salsa from Our Best Bites
Tuesday - Rice & Sausage Casserole
Wednesday - Hunts Tomato & Pesto Chicken from HERE , this is the meal they show on a commercial for Hunts tomatoes. Every time we watch it my husband comments on doesn't that look so good. So I finally decided to give into his wishes (even though it doesn't to me).
Thursday -- Clam Chowder w/ Homemade Bread sticks
Friday -- Swiss Steak w/ Rice
Saturday -- Steak & Grilled Veggies
Sunday -- Roast & Potatoes
Breakfast Ideas: Scrambled Eggs, Fruit & Muffins, Biscuits & Gravy, Hot Cereal, Creamed Egg on Toast, German Pancakes & Waffles
Baking: I didn't get any baking done last week so this week I am just trying for Bread, because we are out. Maybe No Bake Cookies too. They sound simple enough.
As for a review of last week menu. The pork was pretty yummy & I would probably make again. The ChickenTortilla soup, had good flavor, but I must have messed up because there was a lot of liquid for little substance, so probably not. I did try some copycat recipes for Bajio Sweet Rice & Shrimp Tacos. They weren't perfectly Bajio, but they were close enough to curb my craving. I will try getting those posted later this week.
Linking up as well to Menu Plan Monday on Org Junkie.
Since it seems to be my planning day & I am also posting this week TO Do list on Here. Maybe if someone else knows what I am trying to get done I will be able to accomplish more of it. Now this is above & beyond the regular home & school to do's that everyone has.
This Weeks TO DO LIST
- Sewing for the Robyn done. (Has to be done my Wednesday) I am sewing a pair of Pajamas for one of her children along with matching doll pajamas. Here is what the doll pattern looks like:
I am sewing the Pajamas in the bottom right corner. The boys pajamas are all done & the girl is 3/4 done. Then I just have the child pajamas to do. I am hoping with another 2 hours or less into it today I will be finished.

I am sure it won't all get done, but there are my to do's for the week. We are also for home school co-op going on a field trip to the Post Office, so that should be fun. We haven't been on a field trip for co-op since before all the holidays hit.
Well, I know it isn't a fancy posts today, but it is a post none the less. I will hopefully have pictures to show of my finished sewing projects this week to you. I do have a basic tutorial to put on here. It isn't fancy but it's my 1st sewing tutorial so I am excited to share. But for now, I have better get moving. I have some chores to do, school to start & sewing to finish today. Happy Tuesday to you all.
