What's Cookin' This Week (June 13-19, 2011)?

I developed a head cold a few days ago and am having bad allergies this week too.  So I apologize for my lack of participation lately.  The sneezing and coughing have taken over my desires to cook and seek out new recipes. 

However, I did manage to do some baking.  I made two loaves of bread yesterday along with my famous carrot cinnamon muffins and a delicious blueberry cake recipe that I devised on the spot too.  I'll be sharing that berry cake and a few other sweet treats this coming week. 

In the mean time, here is my plan for this week.  I must admit that it's nothing new but that's because I need to stock up again - do some pureeing of vegetables and bake more breakfast items too.  So I intend to do that in addition to making these family favorites of ours....

Monday, June 13, 2011 - Homemade Chili  with yogurt-wheat sandwich bread for dipping (This I am pulling from my freezer, using the last portion of it.)  Serve with a side green salad.

Tuesday, June 14, 2011 - Chicken Spaghetti - (I'm going to add some veggies to this and experiment a bit.  I use regular cheese, NOT Velveeta as well.) Serve with side of green beans.

Wednesday, June 15, 2011 - Grilled ham and cheese sandwiches with butternut squash spread.  Serve with a side of feta-bean dip and baked chips

Thursday, June 16, 2011 - Breakfast for dinner: Cheezy Grits and Egg Casserole

Friday, June 17, 2011
- Cheater Enchiladas, my own personal recipe, but I'm trying them out a new ten-minute enchilada sauce.  Serve with corn and side salad

Saturday, June 18, 2011
 - Barbecue with friends - Chicken with Italian marinade, Garlic-Tequilia-Lime Shrimp, Cauliflower Fritters and More!

Sunday, June 19, 2011
(Father's Day) - Breakfast out - my husband's choice.  Dinner will be his favorite: Man's Italian Meat Pie.  Serve with creamed spinach.

In honor of Father's Day, I will try a new dessert recipe using my husband's favorite ingredients - white chocolate and bananas.  I hope this White Chocolate and Banana Cake will be a hit in our house! 

What's cooking in your kitchen this week?  Any special meal plans?  Or will you be grilling or eating out in honor of Father's Day?


  1. Looks like y'all will be eating good this week! By the way, I have a high school friend who is living in Pensacola. We reconnected on Facebook. I think her husband is in the military and at the base there. But I can't be sure.

  2. I'm not much of a cook, but you have certainly inspired me to plan a menu for this week. It will cut down the stress of trying to figure out what to eat each day.

    Funny, when I've done the plan in the past, it works. Why can't I keep it going! :)
