Mom, what’s for dinner? Week of January 13

Last week I did not prep any meals. I also went back to work on Wednesday. Needless to say I need to have some prep done.

I prepped 3 of my dinners for this week today. I also prepped smoothie packets for next week. Easy peasy breakfasts.


Monday. King ranch chicken, left over potatoes, carrots, and onions

Tuesday. Pinto beans and ham, cornbread

Wednesday. Fire roasted tomato sauce over whole wheat pasta, salad, bread

Thursday. Chicken tacos, chips and salsa

Friday. Italian crusted pork roast, Parmesan fettuccine, veggie

Saturday Chili, hoe cakes

All of the meals are done in the slow cooker.

Easy Rolls Revisited

I originally posted this recipe in July of 2010 when my blog was only a month old.

“A while ago, I was looking for a recipe for biscuits or rolls on Paula Deen’s website.  I found this recipe for Easy Rolls.  They looked easy so I decided to try them.  Once I tried them once, I was hooked.  They have a slightly sweet taste and are so tender.

The Imaginative one tasted one and his response was “M-M-M.”  After you try them, I’m sure you will say the same thing.”  – July 2010

One thing I did differently is I added some cinnamon to the top before baking them.  I’m now wondering if I could add some vanilla extract.  That might take this rolls to another level.

Enjoy this blast from the past.
