Menu Plan Monday

Happy spring!!!  I am so glad that spring has finally showed its lovely face around here!  The daffodils are blooming and new leaves are starting to bust out everywhere.  I am also happy to report that C and I had a successful car shopping day on Saturday.  We purchased a 2008 Chevrolet Equinox All Wheel Drive in black and it is sharp if I do say so myself.  I do not know anyone who actually likes to car shop and I don’t either, but it was time.  It had been almost six weeks since our accident and I had spent a lot of time in the last couple of weeks looking at vehicles online and, boy, are they expensive!  We still had to give a little more than I wanted to for this one, but I think overall we got a pretty good deal.  I am really glad that it over!

Back to the fun stuff…food!  The only thing I did not have time to make last week was the lemon chiffon cake since we were out all day Saturday, so I am moving that one to this weekend.  I have a 20 year class reunion meeting on Saturday (gulp! 20 YEARS!), but I should have time to make the cake as well.  Here is what I have planned:

Leftover pineapple pork loin

Sausage bake and fruit

Round Steak Italiana (new recipe)

Grilled pork chops with butter roasted potatoes

Salisbury steak

Lemon Chiffon Cake (new recipe) For some reason, I just can’t get this recipe made.  Last week, I didn’t have time, and this week I discovered that I was missing some ingredients.  Oops! 

Southern Plate’s Banana Crumb Cake (new!)

Pizza night

Neighborhood restaurant night
