Menu Monday: Back and Better Than Ever...Or Something Like That

Happy Monday, everyone! I hope y'all had as beautiful of a day today and yesterday as we did -- it sure has made me even more ready for spring!

Here is our menu for the week:

Monday: Panko Chicken with mozzarella melted on top, served on fettuccine noodles with marinara -- the lazy (wo)man's Chicken Parmesan. It is pretty darn quick and really delicious! I will say, however, that my hands and feet already feel a bit swollen, and I think it is a combination of how hot it got in my house today (the afternoon sun really can heat this place up which is a good thing in the winter but not so great when it is warm outside) and the high amount of sodium in our dinner tonight. My bad.

Tuesday: These frozen breaded chicken things stuffed with brie and apples (I think -- is this right, Mags -- I didn't get them yet!) that Margaret keeps raving over that you can get at Publix. My week is really crazy and I am getting home late most nights this week, so we are doing quick and easy. The kids will probably eat hot dogs.

Wednesday: Baked Chicken with Dijon and Lime and a steamed veggie.

Thursday: Crock-pot BBQ*

Friday: Leftovers

Saturday: I will be at a wedding, Brad will be at a conference, the kids will be with their YaYa.

Sunday: We will probably go to evening church, so we will grab something on the way home.

*Crock-pot BBQ
*I got this recipe from a girl name Carter in a recipe exchange. I have tried it before, and it is really good. (Have you ever noticed that I say "really good" and "really delicious" a lot on Menu Monday -- I guess that is better than saying that what I cook is super disgusting...)

1 3-4 lb pork loin
salt and pepper
2T sugar
2 cups cider vinegar

Salt and pepper all sides of the pork loin, and place in crock-pot. Sprinkle with sugar and pour vinegar on top. Cover with lid and cook on low for 10 hours. Do not remove lid for 10 hours! After 10 hours have passed, scrape off layer of fat from top, if any. Shred meat. Serve with your favorite BBQ sauce (although we like it as is) on buns.

I am loving your Menu Mondays!!! Keep them coming! I've tried several of the recipes you & Margaret have posted! And, btw... did you ever get your bloodword done? I was going to mention maybe your Vitamin D was low? I had some of the same things going on and they found almost non-existent levels of Vit. D & calcium so put me on supplements last year. It has helped a lot! Good luck!!! The babies are precious, as always!!
