ON THE MENU- I have a week's worth of scrumptious recipes all panned out for you!

Oh, I’m so happy I brought back ON THE MENU!!! It really helps me grocery shop and put great meals on the table almost every night! I love to cook but I have a super busy life and I don’t want to spend lots of time cooking! So I try to choose meals that are amazingly tasty and easy! That’s the magic culinary combination for me. We cook with the season here at StoneGable! I really prefer to cook with what is in season and what I can get locally. If you want a week’s worth of scrumptious dinner menus you are in the right place! Here’s what’s ON THE MENU…



It’s the end of January and we have only had one measly paltry snow! Come on snow… where are you? I’m one of those rare people who loves a good big snow storm! At least one before spring! If you have seen snow in your area will you please send it in my direction?

Today I am finally getting the cast off my left leg!!!! That means I can get out of this wheelchair and get busy again!  I’ll be in a boot for another 4-6, but no problem!!!!

I love love love hearty winter meals like stews and soups. They are easy to put together and cook and taste so warm and comforting! I’m making a family favorite today! My Nani made sauteed chicken and so did my Mom but this recipe goes even further back in our family! It’s been passed down through the generations! I call Nani’s Sauteed Chicken a heritage recipe!

Today is a VERY SPECIAL day at StoneGable! I am starting a new venture in decorating with two of my best blogging friends, Anita from Cedar Hill Farmhouse and Kelly from My Soulful Home. And it’s with you in mind! It’s also free and fabulous and fun and hopefully will give you hours and hours of learning and spending time with us!!!! Make sure to stop by StoneGable on Wednesday to learn all about it…. and BE A PART OF OUR NEW VENTURE TOO!

Happy Groundhog day!!!! Here’s hoping for lots of snow and an early spring!

Thursdays are super busy for me! So I usually like to take a meal out of the freezer. And in our house that means soup. As you probably know we are such big soup eaters!!!!! I always have a stash of yummy soups stored away in my freezer.

If you make one thing on the menu this week you should try the Sauteed Rice. My Nani taught me to make this recipe and it will rock your side dish world!

Saturdays are always special days around StoneGable. We are big home DIYers so you might find us ripping up a floor or building shelves or painting furniture or walls! Or we might be relaxing with friends watching football or spending time with family! Most of all I love having the day with Bobby!

  33. So glad the menu is back on your blog. We had snow streamers coming off of Georgian Bay across Lake Simcoe this am, could hardly see outside my windows but about 20 minutes later had blue sky an sunshine. So glad your case is coming off just take one day at a time ?

  34. Oh Yvonne you have made my day indeed! I am in the minority too-a super duper snow lover just like you!!! The more the better. I get depressed if we don’t have a white Christmas and then watch the weather like it’s my business every day just hoping for a big old outside running Nor’easter. Fingers crossed ?? I talked online to one of our CT weathermen and he said wait for February!!! ❄️☃️❄️

  35. Sandy Manning says:

    Kinda sad when being in a boot for weeks is good news, isn’t it?! Sure beats a wheelchair and I am glad you are making progress. Tough deal for you. The menu looks yummy. I did make your Nani’s chicken a while back and it was good.

  36. I’m glad you brought your menus back as well. I’ve missed them. If nothing happens, I’ll be making your broccoli soup this week. Love your recipes.

  37. Sorry, Yvonne! I can send you a bucket of sand if you like. We are people who escape the cold and snow — snowbirds. There are disadvantages, though. I’m not in my kitchen with all of my equipment. Anyway, I’m glad you are going to be more mobile. Now, be more careful!!!!! Have a great day.

  38. Those potatoes on your Saturday menu look yummy. I will have to try those.

  39. I’m, also, glad you brought back “On the Menu”. Challenges me to keep my menu fresh and avoid getting in a rut. Thank you.

  40. Thanks Yvonne
    I set my weekly menu each Monday morning and start here. This week I making your Nani’s Sautéed.

    So glad you brought your menus back

  41. Hi Yvonne, So happy to hear your cast is coming off!! YAY!! I have to say, I too hope for an early spring, but you can keep the snow! 🙂 I live on Florida, so snow for us would be a huge mess. Hope some comes your way though. Enjoy your day!

  42. I’ve made your cole slaw before and it is delicious! I’ll have to make it again this week and try that fish and chips recipe. Glad to hear you’re getting your boot today; yea!

  43. Carol A. Wellein says:

Take care and Merry Christmas!XOXO
