Menu Plan Monday 12/26/2011 CHRISTMAS BREAK EDITION

Now that Christmas is over, I think we will all take a moment to breathe......we will also wish that the air conditioning didn't have to be on in the middle of December. lol
This week's menu will be loosely planned with the exception of the weekend because I am off of work with the exception of one day (Monday-Friday).  Hoorah!  Lots of appointments will keep us all on the move though.
Anyway, I hope that your holiday was blessed  and happy cooking!

Rib Eye Steaks
Baked Potatoes
Green Beans
Homemade Guacamole with Chips
To Do:  Enjoy the day, kiss my kids!

Shrimp and Grits
Christmas Salad
Cheesy Biscuits
Green Salad
(I'm just showing up, thanks Mom!)
To Do:  Put chops in the refrigerator

Skillet Barbecued Pork Chops Recipe
(carryover from last week, we mixed it all up)
Lima Beans
To Do:  Bake chickens and package for freezer, make chicken noodle soup for the Crazy Cooking Challenge this month, peruse my mags for some healthy easy to make meals, then go from there.  I'm planning for chaos ;o)

All of these days are up in the air since I will be around the house and trying to prepare for the upcoming weeks.  As most people do, we will be lightening up things in the coming months to be at "fighting" weight when bathing suit season rolls around.  I'll update as I go, especially if my experiments turn out good! 
as always.......
happy Monday :o)

  1. please share your recipe and method for those steaks....they look amazing ! Happy New Year!

  2. Hey Lora Lee,
    We cover the steaks with olive oil, coarse black pepper, seasoned salt, and granulated garlic. Also we allow the steaks to become room temperature (approx 30 minutes sitting out) before placing them on a really hot grill. Sear both sides until nice grill marks appear then reduce heat and close the grill cover and allow to cook until desired doneness. Resist the urge to continually flip or poke at the steaks, then allow them to rest for about ten minutes prior to serving. Hope this helps :o)
