Menu Monday

Weather is becoming consistently cooler. We are also getting snow (though yesterday we had some rain as well). Time for slow cooker meals and lots of hearty soups. I will need to pull out the recipe books next month and try something new.

Still working on cleaning out the fridge freezer and amazingly I am seeing a difference. Love it.


Leftover pork roast made into a stove top casserole. Served with tossed salad.


Leftover ham (should be the last package in the fridge freezer) warmed up and served with corn, mashed potatoes, and the remains of the tossed salad.


Clean out the fridge night.


I am out to supper (the Bible Study leaders are getting together for a meal) so I will make Harvey some smoked sausages, pasta, and some raw veggies and dip. 


Cod fillets, rice, and some kind of veggie. Probably a salad as well. I would like to try something new and different with the cod so I will spend some time looking online for an interesting take.


Leftover Turkey (should be the last bag of this as well). I have a couple of ideas for this, that I am tossing around.  One will leave enough leftovers for another meal, the other perhaps enough for a light lunch the next day. Sides will depend on which recipe I use.


Roast Beef (must check and see if I have a beef roast in the freezer), roasted potatoes, roasted carrots. Perhaps a tray of raw veggies and some dip.

Everybody have a wonderful day.

God bless.


  1. It's nice when you can see space appearing in the fridge and freezer isn't it. Especially when they are providing you with such good food as you work your way through them.

    I love it when I can wipe down a fridge shelf and then leave it empty and clear. It's been very cold and wet here, but we don't seem to get any snow until a bit later in the year … thank goodness.

    Take care on those roads, they sound lethal on your last post.

    1. I really don't know how I manage to leave it get as bad as it does. I must learn to stay on top of all the leftovers. Your challenges help me focus.

      God bless.

  2. Something new & different with the cod - would you consider a fish taco or a "bowl" dish? Cabbage is featured on the menu this week. there's one serving of butter chicken left; it's time for something new. I've been thinking about pan-fried cabbage with bacon awa cabbage soup. Company's coming this w/e and I have to come up with a menu plan. I get inspiration from other's menu plans. Thanks, Jackie.

    1. I might have to sneak the idea of fish tacos on Harvey.

      God bless.

  3. No hardship having slow cooker meals and soup though. I love 'em!

  4. There's one serving of butter chicken left in the fridge; time for something new. Cabbage is on the menu - cabbage soup and fried cabbage with bacon and potatoes. I get inspiration from your Menu Monday, i.e. make a plan.
