back to the kitchen...

So after my 2 week anti cooking break. I’m back…. We’ll I better be after spending $350 at the grocery store. Which is what we normally spend between 2 stores (can’t get everything at the same store). So here is this week’s list!

Saturday – Black bean & salsa soup with corn cornbread

Sunday – Veggie pizzas & fruit salad

Monday – Campfire mush (our very odd name for potatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, zucchini and a few other veggies all thrown together with some grape-seed oil, garlic, onion & chili powder and then…. Ketchup) with fruit salad

Tuesday – Minestrone soup with fruit salad

Wednesday – veggie lasagna with fruit

Thursday – Salmon sandwiches, sweet potato fries & veggies

Friday – go back to the store J

If you’re dying to know a recipe for one of these just let me know and I’ll post it. J It’s not the most creative week…. I’m starting back slow so I don’t try to quit again. Ha! I do this every few months… it just gets old sometimes. I’m sure you know what I mean!


  1. So glad you're back in the kitchen. Can you make some extras for us!?!? The veggie lasagne sounds especially nice. I make some (Okay, yes, I DO cook sometimes) with spinach, cottage cheese, whole wheat lasagne noodles, spaghetti sauce, parmesan and mushrooms. Yum.

  2. Ugh...I just spent $178 and I shop every week! Ugh...glad it's done though! Your meals sound so good!

  3. WOW! That's a lot of food moo laa!!

    Things prob. would run a little more smoothly over here if I had a weely menu. But I just can't stick to it! I do mainly spur of the moment dinners...sometimes, a lot of the time, with Philips help. Since he doesn't mind cooking. : )

    Your menu sounds delicious!

  4. There may not be a recipe, but I am intrigued by your sweet potato fries. Do you season them a special way? I have been wanting to make some of these...

  5. I'd love to get your recipe for the Minestrone soup and what do you put into your fruit salad? Thank you for all your posts, I'm always enlightened!

  6. How do you do your salmon sandwiches? We love our sweet potato fries so that would be fun to serve them together. I do lots of soups but I've been so tired since my surgeries in Dec/Jan that I haven't had the energy to whip many up. I love your recipes you add on your blog!

  7. Wow--great menu! I haven't had veggie lasagna in forever . . . hmmm...maybe tomorrow!

    Just had a chance to check out your older posts and all those awesome photos. You are so talented! And, what an absolutely beautiful family you have--mama included :)

  8. Would love the recipe for the campfire mush and the lasagna.

    Oh, btw, that's how much I spent tonight too! And I'm happy to report that I finally have grape seed oil in my posession. :)

  9. Sounds yummy! I bet you're going to get back on a roll again with the cooking! Have fun :)
    The minestrone soup recipe would be nice - I do love a good minestrone!


  10. Ooooo. I need the black bean and salsa soup recipe. All of this sounds so yummy!


Thank you for blessing me with your words!
