Weekly Menu Monday

I'm ready for warmer weather that sticks around and doesn't trick me by running away for a week and allowing much cooler temps to take its place.

I'm exited about cooking and eating outside.  

I have a problem though.  I have never really learned to cook on the grill.  I need to.  I want to but it just hasn't happened yet.

This is the year I conquer the grill.  I say it is, I will make it so!!
Can I buy a pretty red grill as motivation?

Last week's menu was pretty good.  We tried two new recipes, the Smoked Sausage and Zucchini Saute which I didn't get to try until Thursday for lunch since I enjoyed Corn Beef and cabbage that my brother in law had made on Wednesday.  The smoked sausage saute takes the prize for best meal of the week though.  It tasted so fresh and healthy.
On Saturday I made the Pizza Pie Quiche.  It was good.  Everyone(I had my niece and nephew over) thought it tasted just like pizza but it was not as heavy.  Jacek didn't like the texture.  I will make it again in a few weeks and tweak the ingredients a bit.

I haven't baked in over a week.  I'll have to pull out my recipe book unless...UNLESS...someone suggests something for me!!  (hint hint)
(Anybody, anybody?)

Here's what's cookin in the kitchen of Kerri's Klutter this week:
 Monday:  Tacos

Thursday:  Slow Cooker Kalua Pig  (If I'm able to eat..might be a YOYO night)     

Friday:  Turkey Burgers

Saturday: Out to dinner (It's our date night)

Sunday:  Will do the Kalua pig if I don't make it Thursday           or            Chicken Tetrazzini

There you have it.  
 That's what is cookin in my kitchen
what's cookin in yours?

I'm linking up over at "I'm an Organizing Junkie" for Menu Plan Monday

Happy Weekly Menu Monday.
May you have a week of stress free yummy meals to look forward to

Sounds like a yummy week of food. I hope you have some Hawaiian Rock salt for that Kalua Pig!! :)

Kristen said...

Sounds like a great week of meals. I haven't made kalua pork in a long time. I may just have to get out a pork roast and make some soon! MMM!

I definitely think a red grill would be a perfectly legitimate purchase if it motivates you to conquer the grill!!!

as always, my mouth is watering and waiting for each yummy day to come! Side note: You cannot call a grill pretty. That's just not proper. :D

The sausage and zucchini recipe looks good. I'll have to remember that for summertime, when we don't know what to do with all the zucchini.

I'm going to try to put together a Comment-Love Letters post. Right now a majority of my comments are giveaway entries, which are great but wouldn't work well for this. :)

We cook on the grill all year round. Well I say we. The truth is that hubby, and once in a while my son, is the grill master! I just enjoy the results! But he's been out there during snow storms grilling steaks! YUM!

Good luck on conquering the grill! And as for buying a shiny red one ... I say go for it!

I have no clue to to use a grill either, but I am ok with that! It is a nice break in the summer to have my husband grill.

I am making oatmeal chocolate chis cookies this week.

Alrighty then... I will never have to say I don't know what to cook. I'm just coming here!!
