In A Food Mood

Menu Plan for this week:

Chinese Beef And Noodles

Baked Pot Roast and Gravy

Saucy Chicken and Rice

Pork Chop Potato Dinner

Oven Chicken Cordon Bleu

Chicken Cacciatore

Sausage Pasta Bake

Slow Cooker Fajitas

I sat down with my copy of One Pot Meals and wrote out this menu plan. While I was at it, I made my grocery list. It didn't take but an hour max, and I was watching tv at the same time. (Don't you just love multi-tasking?) This cookbook is filled with great recipes. If you're looking to make an investment in a cookbook, check this one out or any of the other Gooseberry Patch publications.

(I got nothing in return for writing this-- they don't even know I am doing it. I just like these cookbooks a lot. The other day I was browsing when we stopped at a Cracker Barrel and Curt teased me that the last thing I needed was another one of these cookbooks. I flipped open to a random page and said, "Yes but wouldn't you like that for dinner one night?" He had to admit it looked good. I was quick to tell him I didn't have that particular recipe. :) You can never have too many Gooseberry Patch cookbooks, I always say!)
Pin It!

I have some ambitious meals panned for this week also, and most of them have been gleaned out of the new cookbooks that arrived in the mail in the last couple of weeks. I love making something new and livening up the menu around here. I am going to have to check out this cookbook. It sounds like something I would probably love! Thanks for sharing this!

Oh how I wish I could be so organized. My problem is that I'm trying to lose weight (Weight Watchers) and my husband won't eat any veggies or other 'good for you' meals they have.

Allison, when I was trying to lose weight I made separate meals. It was hard but it didn't take that long. That way your family can still eat what they like and you can still eat the stuff you're supposed to eat. It's a sacrifice on your part but just think how good you'll feel when the weight is off!

Hi Marybeth, Are the recipes all pretty "clean" ingredients, in other words, no packaged ingredients, etc. I'm really trying to cook meals that use spices, vegetables, etc. and not "can of mushroom soup," etc. The cookbooks sound great! :)

That looks like a dream dinner menu for our family. But what cookbook?

Marybeth said...

Lisa V, the name of the cookbook is in the first sentence, with the link to the site it's sold on. HTH!
