Monday Menu

At last! I planned the menu first and then let my husband do the grocery shopping. (This is a little bit of a family joke. My mother used to say, “I’ll let you do the dishes, honey,” as if conferring a special privilege. Now we say, “I’ll let you do ___, honey,” whenever we want someone else to do a job for us. It doesn’t really apply, here, though, because my husband ‘s favorite sport is grocery shopping, so I’m not exactly passing off an undesirable chore. Convoluted, much?)

Monday: Southwest turkey cheeseburgers, black bean & corn confetti salad (I was going to make this last week with our tacos, and forgot about it!)

Tuesday: Homemade pizza

Wednesday: Quiche and green salad

Thursday: Pork Loin Hunter Style (from a battered, well-used copy of The Inn Cookbook–an old cookbook that is only available used at an incredibly inflated price–I guess we should take better care of it!), cranberry sauce, spätzle

Friday: Tuna noodle casserole (I make it pretty much like this recipe)

Do you have an old cookbook or recipe that you couldn’t replace if you lost it?

  1. Love a Tuna Noodle Casserole that does not contain Cream of…Soup! Although, you may be betraying your roots. Thank you for sharing!

  2. can you give the pork tenderloin recipe please??? I just bought a tenderloin at the commissary on the markdown meats and was looking for something “new” to do with it!
    I LOVE reading your blog Melissa, I look forward to it, especially on Mondays!!! Thanks!

    • Thanks so much, Carrie! I’d love to share some pork recipes (this particular one is designed for a loin roast, not just the skinny tenderloin, which cooks so much faster and is great for a weeknight)–so here’s what I’ll do. I’ll post a few of my favorites on the Home Baked Facebook page later today. I’ll make sure to note which cut is best suited for which recipe. Thanks for the suggestion!
