Mom, What’s for Dinner? – Week of May 16

Once again, I’m going to give a list of dinners that I’ve planned for the week.  All of the meals are going to be cooked in the slow cooker.  I’ve prepped all of them so they are going to be thrown in the slow cooker before I go to work.

Peach Balsamic Chicken, Baked Potato, Green Beans

Black Bean and Turkey Chili, Buttermilk Cornbread

Basil Chicken with Tomatoes and Ricotta, Pizza Pasta

Asian Beef with Green Beans, Rice

Pineapple BBQ Pork Chops, Roasted Potatoes, Veggies

 

A few weeks ago, I mentioned I was participating in a cozy mystery bingo game on Goodreads.  Here are the books I’ve read during the past month.
A Tine to Live, A Tine to Die (Local Foods Mystery, #1)A Tine to Live, A Tine to Die by Edith Maxwell

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a pretty good read. It lagged at times. I wished the pace picked up at different times in the book.

Cam was a business woman in the city until her uncle could no longer work on his farm. She took over the farm and decided to turn it into an organic farm. Cam was still new at the whole farming business until someone was murdered on the farm. She had to figure out who did it before her farming days were over.

Dying for Chocolate (A Goldy Bear Culinary Mystery #2)Dying for Chocolate by Diane Mott Davidson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Even though there were some questions like why were two teenagers invited to an aphrodisiac party with early 50 year old couples, this book was a good read.

The resolution was excellent. I couldn’t put the book down because I had to know what was going to happen.

The Chocolate Moose Motive (A Chocoholic Mystery, #12)The Chocolate Moose Motive by JoAnna Carl

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Once I got started reading the book, I could not put it down. Between 7 and 10:30 last night, I was in Warner Pier, Michigan wanting to know the answer who killed Buzz Smith. Was it Sissy who everyone thought did it or was it someone else?

I loved meeting Sissy and Wildflower, her grandma.

I highly recommend this book.

If Fried Chicken Could Fly (Gram’s Country Cooking School Mystery #1)If Fried Chicken Could Fly by Paige Shelton

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book had an interesting plot twist with Gram (Miz) and Betts (Isabelle) able to see ghosts. After the murder of Everett, a ghost of an outlaw helps Betts discover who killed Everett.

A good read – slow at first but then the action picked up.

To Brew or Not to Brew (Brewing Trouble, #1)To Brew or Not to Brew by Joyce Tremel

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was an enjoyable book. Max, a female, is a brew master getting ready to open up her own brew house. However with 2 murders and someone attempting to sabotage her brew house is she going to be able to open the brew house on time?

I read this book within a day because I couldn’t stop reading the book since I wanted to know what was going to happen next in the story. I’m anxiously awaiting for the next book in the series that comes out in October 2016.
