Menu Plan Monday

A busy week means that unusual thing happened in the supper department last week, and so there is a repeat on the menu of the sweet and sour meatball meal which did not get eaten last week. There was a death on my husband's side of the family, and so we were fed after the funeral. Later in the day when we were discussing the meal after the service, I mentioned that I thought the food had been "just okay." The Mister said that he thought it was very good! I rolled my eyes and told him that he probably can't appreciate how good my cooking is since he thinks that everything tastes very good!

Right now there is a pot roast simmering in the crock pot, and this weekend and I started gathering tender young dandelion greens for salad.

Monday: Round Roast with carrots and red potatoes
Tuesday: leftovers
Wednesday: Sweet and Sour Meatballs (see last week's MPM for recipe)
Thursday: Blackened catfish and fried green tomatoes (which we have sliced up in the freezer from the final harvest.)
Friday: leftovers
Saturday: Eggplant and Mozzarella Melt with Dandelion Green salad*

*Pick your dandelion greens. Wash them. Toss with sliced green onion and bacon crumbles. Top with sliced hard boiled egg. Use a vinaigrette dressing. Let me know how it turns out.


  1. Your frozen green tomatoes, do you batter them first, before you freeze them? I love the idea!

  2. Hi Stace, I don't bread them before freezing, just slice them up, separate them with wax paper, and bag them. Then you bread them while they are still frozen, and fry. I know some who have tried breading them first and then freezing them, but the results weren't good and the breading would fall off in the pan.

  3. I didn't know anyone actually ate fried green tomatoes, I just thought it was a cute idea for a movie.

    I sort of have a menu. I wrote it down yesterday, but cannot find it now. With Papa off Thurs and Friday it will be a strange week. Ol' Ronald will be making our supper Friday for sure. :P

  4. Hi Monica I think I'll pass on supper for Thursday never heard of blacken catfish? Thanks for sharing another yummy! week.

  5. You know, someone just sent me a recipe for a bacon, lettuce & tomato sandwich made with fried green tomatoes instead of the regular ones. I really need to give those a try, I know we'd like them. I also have to try the eggplant/mozzarella melt - my 20 year old son has decided not to eat meat anymore. Puh-lease! As if! Thanks for some more great ideas - have a good week ~


I love hearing from you. Please share your comment.
