monday menu #3 for 2012

on sunday, because otter pop's gone and i'll have to really rush to get groceries tomorrow morning!  here's the menu: 
  • tonight is small group and we're having a baked potato bar with broccoli salad.  yum!
  • Oma's sour cream chicken with rice with sliced bakers and some cherry tomatoes (because they looked perfect in the sour cream chicken picture.)
  • Slow cooker parmesan honey pork roast with mashed potatoes and gravy and green beans.
  • Sherry's aussie chicken with french fries.
  • goulash with cottage cheese and hopefully some phr's... but i won't count on it.  i never remember to make them!
  • mulligan stew w/ fresh baked bread
  • lasagna... because i love it and my mr. doesn't.  so i should take advantage of that he's gone.
i'm using new recipes this week (top three are new) that i've found on pinterest and posted to my "dinner recipes" board.  i suppose instead of just FINDING all these great ideas, i should try them out too.  and it's good timing because i was getting into a menu slump.
one of my boards is "sweets" and i'm ashamed to admit that it's (by far) my largest board.  i have a million recipes to try on it.  i hope i don't!  although i've tried several already and not all of them are as delicious as they look. 

Try to remember, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."

I wish I could come make some PHRs for you. I love to make them but can't have them around here because I eat eat eat until they're all gone! (I don't want to LOOK like a PHR!)

i already look like a PHR, so I should make some here this week too, and eat them all up! I'm going to make the potato slices for lunch today. That was an exciting find on pintrest. :)
