I am not a baker but I am addicted to The Great British Baking Show! I’m just star-struck at the home bakers who whip up the most delectable morsels that I cannot even pronounce. And I love all those wonderful accents! It’s fun to watch it while working on recipes for ON THE MENU!
As I am writing this I’m watching the semi-finals of season 6! They are making show-stopping patisseries! Oh my goodness! I’m so hungry. No wonder!
So let’s see what’s on the menu this week…
MONDAY- SLOW COOKER DAY
Pork and sauerkraut is a religion in Lancaster Co. It’s on every diner and family restaurant in our area! And we take it very seriously! Of course, Lancaster Co has lots of ties to our German roots!
So I make pork and sauerkraut in the slow cooker so the pork (shoulder) has time to literally fall apart. This so so yummy recipe from Mira at Cooking LSL is very close to mine!
This is for you Bobby!
- SLOW COOKER PORK AND SAURKRAUT
- MASHED POTATOES
- HOMEMADE APPLESAUCE
Tonight’s main dish is such a beautiful looking recipe from one of my favorite foodie blogs, The Recipe Critic!
l love the idea of using fat-free Greek yogurt to add creaminess to a dish!
- CREAMY BAKED ASIAGO CHICKEN
- INSTANT POT BROWN RICE WITH MUSHROOMS
- BROCCOLI SAUTEED WITH GARLIC AND RED PEPPER FLAKES
WEDNESDAY- FAMILY DINNER
I’ve made this scrumptious salmon recipe from Cooking Make Healthy a few times and we just love it!
My sister Lisa is in town so I’m having my Mom and her for dinner tonight! And I have some pictures when we were little to share! Oh, what fun!
- HONEY SOY SALMON
- HASSELBACK AIR FRYER POTATOES WITH BUTTER AND GARLIC
- ARUGULA SALAD WITH TOASTED PINENUTS. SHAVED PARMESAN IN A LEMON VINAIGRETTE
THURSDAY- SLOW COOKER SOUP
I’ve made this delicious taco soup from Spend With Pennies so many times I know it by heart! It’s a wonderful dinner and it gets even better so eating the next day or so for lunch is such a treat!
I’m trying to make more soup-for-dinner-and-then-for-lunch meals because Bobby likes to take a container to work!
I can get homemade tortilla chips at our local Giant so I’ll use those instead of the corn tortilla strips.
- SLOW COOKER CHICKEN TACO SOUP
- CHIPS AND SALSA
Crescent rolls have some kind of magical hold on me! It must be from my childhood. We had crescent rolls for special occasions like Christmas and Easter! I love bread and those refrigerator section crescent rolls are my favorite!
Thanks, Living Well Spending Less for this fun and easy recipe!
SATURDAY- SOUP DAY #2
This soup will be a favorite of my Bobby’s! He loves anything Italian. I’m making this for him to take to work next week! YUM!
The Cozy Apron is a wonderful foodie site! It’s one of my go-to sites for amazing recipes!
My young formative years were spent growing up in Scottland and England. And I came to love fish wrapped in newspaper. But I never got on board about malt vinegar. You can take the girl out of America but you cannot take the ketchup out of the girl!
A beautiful recipe from Berry And Maple
TREAT OF THE WEEK
I am so excited about this frosty and easy sweet treat this week!!!! Even though I’m not a big sweet eater, I do love cookies and ice cream!
One ice cream sandwich is only 2 points.
Thanks so much to Kleinworth And Co. for the great fun treat!
Have a scrumptious week, Friend!
