what’s cookin’?



Had a great and busy weekend! Finally made it to the store yesterday afternoon.  Kept the bill to under $81!  Was very excited about that. 

I will be spending a lot of time on Green Acres Closet and some new ventures for our me and the clan.  I can’t share just yet but it is exciting and my buddy, Kristen, and I can’t be more excited.

Saturday:  Dom’s Birthday Party

Sunday:  Nuggets, Pea and Hash browns with onion and sweet peppers from our Garden, Salad

Monday:  Root Beer Roast, Cucumber Salad and Sweet Potatoes – Price Chopper had some great looking Roast at a fabulous price.


Root Beer Roast

Place a 2 – 3# Rump Roast in Crockpot

Pour a can of Root Beer over top and Cook for 8 hours on low or until fork tender.  I add a little Tabasco Chipotle Sauce for a little kick.

Tuesday:  Having a Patio Dinner Party with our buddies the Davis Family.  Anna is making her famous Shrimp and Rice.

         Shrimp and Rice, Corn on the Cob, Fresh Fruit and Salad

Wednesday: Sloppy Joes, Broccoli Slaw, Grapes

Thursday:  Shredded Beef Tacos with Goat Cheese, Black Beans, Carrots and Ranch – This is a great way to use the leftover roast from Monday.  I take the meat warm it with some taco seasoning and shred.  Its that simple.


Friday:  Salmon Burgers, Broccoli and Mozzarella Salad
