Menu Mondays: July 9-15

                                    



Check out my commentary on last week's meals! Hope you can find something you will enjoy!!

Here is this week's menu. Up a bit late but it is still Monday!! I would LOVE if you would take the time to make a comment or two! Let me know how you are liking the menus.


Monday
Roasted Potatoes
Broccoli w/Cheese sauce
                                                       The chicken was really delicious. Easy too!

                                                    Tuesday
                                                      Pulled BBQ Pork Sandwiches
                                                   Corn on the Cob
                                                 *Macaroni and Cheese
                                                 sliced cucumbers
                                                   *Toasted Pound Cake w/Strawberries and Peaches
Mac and Cheese was a bit floury tasting for me but the family loved it. I am still on a quest though to find another recipe for making this well-loved dish from scratch now that I am a SAHW.
Dessert was superb and a good one for just two people cause you make individual servings...I used Cool Whip though instead of ice cream as the recipe calls for.

                                                     Wednesday
                                                       *Salisbury Steak w/Onion Gravy
                                                      Mashed Potatoes
                                              Peas
                                             Rolls
                                          *Peach Cobbler
An absolute delicious meal!! The onion gravy was a bit time consuming to make though. Peach cobbler did not taste as good as the last one I made, I think this was due to the type of peaches, they were white flesh peaches and we did not care for them at all.

                                          Thursday
                                        Tacos
                                       Yellow Rice

                                        Friday
                                       Pizza
                                       Salad

                                        Saturday
                                      *Marinated London Broil
                                      *Fried Green Tomatoes
                                       Baked Potatoes
                                       Rolls
                                   *Lemon Delight
Oh my goodness shut the front door!!! This meal was absolutely the best of the week. The London Broil was cooked to perfection by my lovely husband....and those fried green tomatoes (I had never had them but hubby loves them) were just wonderful!! I also had 2 yellow squash and a zucchini I needed to use before they went bad so I sauteed them up with some onion. We were so stuffed that is why I crossed off that dessert.

                                  Sunday
                                      *Best Ever Burger Recipe (using ground chicken)
                                     Home Fries
                                  Salad
We had leftovers from Saturday....I added a tossed salad and made twice baked potatoes from the one leftover. Another great meal!

Menu Mondays:Critique/Recipe Update

Here is my update with recipe links posted and a critique of each night's meal. I will use a different color text below the days of the week for that day's critique. I hope this gives you some inspiration!! Please leave me some comments and feedback on what you like and would like to see in the future!

Well as promised here is the menu for this week! Now, since this is my first total week posting of the weekly menu I want to make a disclaimer...often times things do not go as planned here at the Russell household and  daily menus get bumped due to unforeseen events happening. Most of the time those things include either an unplanned going out to eat (which has seriously been cut back lately) or getting invited over to the kid's houses to eat...which does happen quite frequently!! So without further adieu here is what the Russell's are eating this week!

                                                                           Monday
Ore Ida Grillers
Squash
The burgers were not as good as they could have been cause they were not cooked on the grill. I do believe cooking them on the grill they would have been fantastic! My hubby absolutely LOVED the pea salad. This is something I thought he might not have liked.

Tuesday
(not sure what the hubs is eating, cause, daughter and I and 2 of her kiddos are going to the Fireworks in the park and having a picnic supper) MEN! sometimes they are such party poopers!!

Brownies w/4th of July Sprinkles
*Raspberry Lime Rickey
Had a really nice time in the park. The fireworks were fantastic and the kids loved it. Chicken salad was just not to my liking, will not make that again. Summer Corn salad was fabulous!! And the beverage...lots of work, but well worth it!!

Wednesday: 4th of July
BBQ Chicken
Corn on the Cob
Rolls
Red Velvet Cupcakes 4th of July Style
*Patriotic Pound Cake Trifle
The macaroni salad was the hit of the cookout!!! Everyone...well almost everyone...1 person picked out the celery...loved it. And my daughter made the pound cake trifle it was beautiful! Picture below!

Thursday
Chicken Caesar Salad
*Cheesy Bread
Bread was great!

Friday
*Lemon Delight
First time ever making sloppy joes from scratch...wow...they were super!!! Will definitely use this recipe again. Second time I made the fries and not sure what I did wrong this time but they were so much better the first time I made them. Well worth your time though!

Saturday
Hawaiian Pizza
*Spinach Salad
Pecan Pie (store bought)
 mainly cause it was on sale and I could not make it for that price
Jamie has a great food blog! Love her recipes and this spinach salad is fabulous!!

Sunday
Meatloaf
Garlic Mashed Potatoes Rice w/gravy
Green Bean Casserole
Rolls
*Southern Peach Cobbler w/Vanilla Ice Cream
We needed some comfort food on this lazy Sunday afternoon and I needed a break from using so many recipes. LOL! We had leftover Pecan Pie so we will have peach cobbler later this week.
