ON THE MENU WEEK OF JAN 15- A week's worth of scrumptious recipes! I'll do the work for you!

We live in a four season area! So that means I not only cook what’s in season but I also cook a little differently in summer, fall, winter and spring. Now that winter is in full swing here I’m apt to cook more roasts and stews and soups. Warm hearty and comforting foods are my favorites in the winter. And my family loves them too! If you cook one thing this week why don’t you try Sunday’s pot roast? It’s a keeper!


Here’s my yummy menu plan…


There is nothing quite like a scrumptious pot roast in the oven on a snowy day. We are to get some messy weather Saturday into Sunday.

You don’t have to give up delicious grilled food just because it is not grilling weather outdoors. I use my cast iron grill and it leaves those great grill marks and charrs food beautifully!

Try the parmesan flan for a delightfully different side dish.

 My French Oasis is a blog I could get lost in. Susan spins the most glorious stories of French living in Charente Maritime in South West France. I highly recommend it! It’s such a treat.

  • TARTIFLETTE– A beautiful one dish French dish
  • Roasted Broccoli


My very favorite food is Tex Mex. I love chili and cumin and all those delicious Mexican inspired flavors. I make a big double or triple pot of soup and freeze it for lunches. YUM!


If you are looking for a healthy and tasty main dish this is it for sure.

One of the hardest working appliances in my kitchen is my slow cooker. Today’s main dish is new to me and I think it will be delicious made in a slow cooker!

  12. Yvonne, When you asked some time ago what your readers wanted on your blog, I answered with the request of weekly menus. I so appreciate your fulfilling this request from me and many others. It is a great encouragement when I set down to make my own menu plan. I’ve used many of your recipes and my family always enjoys them to the max. You are quite the homemaker!

  20. Patty Soriano says:

    LOVE me soups and stews when it gets cold….problem is, here in central Texas that doesn’t happen all that often. Hopefully we will see some lower temps this coming week. But the pot roast could be a regular dinner. It looks SO good! Unfortunately, there’s just the two of us and we usually can’t find a roast small enough. Guess we could freeze half. I think it’s time to make one ! Thanks for the hint!

  21. I have never done a zucchini boat; but your post (and picture – oh my goodness) makes it look not only good, but really pretty simple! Thanks so much for sharing these recipes; I always look forward to them!

  22. Mildred Hoppe says:

    The chicken marsala sounds easy and delicious!

  23. Unable able to have it for Sunday . . . because we had it Friday evening, but the good news (my husband is the cook in our home) is that he is going to use the left overs for a homemade soup this evening with some sourdough bread. Can’t wait.

  24. I think you introduced us to Susan’s My French Oasis blog at one time. Her original stories are excellent. What an amazing writer. As many others have commented, I am so glad to see your recipes in your blog once again.

  25. Everything looks so yummy.Yvonne,you are very ambitious
    with your meals.I am not that talented in the kitchen !

  34. I am looking forward to trying your recipes. I am from the south and I have found a good pot roast on Pinterest called Mississippi Pot Roast. It is very good and also cooked in the slowcooker.
