Monday Menu

So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do,
do it all for the glory of God.
1 Corinthians 10:31

Happy Monday!

I "heart"ily recommend this
Go Red Light and Easy Cookbook from the American Heart Association that I mentioned on last week's menu. I made the raspberry scones and the Tuscan Bean Soup and both turned out wonderfully. (Although I added some blueberries in the scones and they turned, well, blue. Bordering on green. I was lamenting how *not* pretty they were and my sweet daughter consoled me by saying, "Mom, scones are never pretty..." ;)

As I posted this weekend, I am officially "adoption obsessed." Our final home visit with our wonderful social worker is today, so I'm cleaning house like a mad woman! Tonight's dinner in the slow cooker will be just the time-saver I need, and maybe will give the house a nice, homey feel. :) One more step toward bringing our little girl home!

I decided to follow Laura's lead and add pictures this week. Since I'm so visual, I found that helpful on some of the menus I read last week...

Crock Pot pork chops (with Newman's Sesame Ginger Dressing), rice, stir-fry veggies

Fish Fillets with Lemon Crumb Topping (Light and Easy Recipes), roasted carrots, salad

Pesto Chicken Penne, green beans, bread


Kids both have somewhere to be, so... date night! :)

For more menus and some great organizing tips, head on over to Laura's.
Have a terrific week, and thanks so much for stopping by!

Those roasted carrots look yummy. I'm going to give them a try this week or next.

Wendy said...

Yummy menu plan! Pesto chicken has got to be one of the most delicious things ever. :) Have a great week!

Susanne said...

Yummy. I love any kind of roasted vegetables!

Kelly said...

"Light and easy"--2 of my favorite words when it comes to food.

I do like the pictures Cyndi. Great idea. The chicken looks really good.
I'm in a cleaning frenzi too - Open House for realtors at our house tomorrow morning. This is the second one this month. Ah well - it gets me cleaning more often. I tend to let things go so long it looks like people died under the beds! Not a good thing.
Praying all goes well with the home visit. I cannot imagine it won't be just fine.
It's a long process - but the end result is so infinitely precious.

Your menu sounds yummy and a date night sounds fun! Enjoy!

I LOVE Newman's Own Sesame Ginger dressing! I never thought to do anything but dump it onto lettuce though :)
