Menu Ideas for Week of Aug 29th

The last week of summer vacation! Yikes, where did the time go? Atleast the kids will be going back to school with new underbritches! That is about as far as I've gotten. There are shoes, backpacks, supplies, the list goes on....

One more quick and easy menu coming up!


BBQ Chicken and Ribs
Grilled Corn on the Cob

Mmmm...just a few more weeks left of good weather to BBQ! You better believe I am going to take advantage of this! The chicken, ribs and corn are so easy. Just slather the meat with BBQ sauce and grill! I made a batch of BBQ sauce, left it in the pot and just dunked the meat right into it! I just love a thick coating of BBQ sauce on chicken. Yes, the chicken is just a vehicle to eat BBQ sauce in my house! Click on the links for the cole slaw and dumplings!

Tomato pie Quiche

Tomato Pie Quiche
2 tomatoes, diced
Shredded Mozzarela Cheese
4-6 slices of bacon cooked and crumbled
4 eggs
1/2 cup cream
1 deep dish pie shell

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl, beat the eggs and cream together. Fold in remaining ingredients. Pour into pie shell. Cook for about 25-30 minutes or until pie is done and light brown. Serve warm.

I am putting a twist on my cabbage soup this time. I am replacing the beans with yellow squash. I have tried this before and I do believe that I prefer it this way. So yummy! One of these days, I am going to get the stuff to make my own cheese! This is definitely on my to do list!

Fried Green Tomato Burgers
Sweet Potato Fries
Cole Slaw
Lava Cabbage Chocolate Cake

Look for a post on this later in the week! Everything is just too much to put in a little blurb like this. It truly deserves a post of it's own.

Ceasar Salad

Yvonne and Paula are visiting in one day! I would say that Paula is in great company. I am revising Paula's pasta dish a bit. Instead of using shrimp, I am using chicken tenderloins. The boy and bitty are not that crazy about shrimp. Can you believe it? I can't wait to make some homemade pasta for this recipe!

BLT French Bread Pizza

1 loaf of wide french bread sliced longways and cut in half
1 lb bacon, cooked and crumbled
2 tomatoes sliced thin
Lots of Mozzarela cheese
Shredded lettuce, if desired

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spread mayonnaise to cover french bread. Sprinkle with crumbled bacon. Lay slices of tomatoes over bacon. Cover with LOTS of cheese! Place on cookie sheet. Bake in oven about 20 minutes. When done, if desired, top with lettuce. Cut and serve!

This pizza is awesome and so easy to make. My kids just love it too! Always a bonus!

Now don't worry dearhearts, we are not going to be fasting this weekend. We are planning a last minute little vacation with the kids before school starts on Tuesday.

Ready for some cuteness?

Or how about some rugged boy puppy love?

Or some bored teenagerness?

Yeah, I got something for your boredness! Lets go clean rooms!

If you don't see me for a few days, the pile of laundry in there rooms has take me hostage. Send chocolate!

Lava Cabbage Chocolate Cake... Now, I love cabbage and I love chocolate, this is the first time I've heard the two in the same sentence-can't wait to hear about that one! Sorry the beans gave you a hard time, they did me too. Got that recipe from Woman's Day, might be a good one to lose. Have fun this last week before school:@)

I thought I had the weirdest chocolate cake recipe that included a can of sauerkraut! At least this cake has fiber!! I love the way you identify your kids, esp. bitty one! Too cute. xo

Oh it all looks so delicious. I don't even know where to start. The chicken caught my eye, and then the French bread pizza caught me eye, yum.

Cute kids -- sorry your summer vacation is coming to and end. Can I come to your home this week for dinner? The chocolate cake alone would be worth the drive. Have a great time on your last trip before shcool trip. Joni

BBQ ribs? One of my favorites!
I remember this time of year as a child, trying to squeeze out and prolong summer for as long as possible. Your children are beautiful. What a great way to end summer -- a mini vacation. Most mother's I know consider the kids returning to school as their mini vacation!

Your Friend,
