Hello my friends!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, everywhere you go!!  Sing along with me :-)  I hope this entry finds all of you well on your way to being done with Christmas shopping and that you are planning your cooking strategies for the big day and your weekly meals.

My dear husband did get his cast off last Monday and the skin graft looks very healthy. We are dressing it nightly so we can see the progress. My, isn’t nature wonderful in how it can regenerate nerve endings and blood vessels.

We did have a catastrophe last week in our bedroom. Tuesday morning I woke up and stepped into about 2 inches of water. The night before we’d had one heck of a thunderstorm that dropped 8 ½ inches of rain. The gutter on the house had backed up with leaves and that 8 inches just plopped right down on our foundation and came right on in. We were lucky to get it cleaned up and dried (professional equipment) and we are back to normal now. Our quick fix was to put sandbags out along the foundation where that water came in but our next step is to replace the gutter system with a much bigger flow and leaf guards. That will have to be next payday :-)

On to the menu for this week.

Saturday Dec 5 ~~ BLTs with Egg Drop Soup and some baked sweet potato fries

Sunday Dec 6 ~~ Saucy Shrimp with angel hair pasta. Tossed green salad.

Monday Dec 7 ~~ Caramelized Baked Chicken with baked sweet potatoes (I got a deal on sweet potatoes!) Fresh steamed broccoli.

Tuesday Dec 8 ~~ Jagerschnitzel with mashed potatoes. Homemade french baguettes.

Wednesday Dec 9 ~~ Chicken Tortilla Bake with Mexican Rice II.

Thursday Dec 10 ~~ Neat Sloppy Joes with baked sweet potato fries.

Friday Dec 11 ~~ Grilled Tenderloins, rice pilaf, green beans.

I hope this helps you to plan your meals for your family. Keep coming back to see the next installment of …. "Cindy’s Menu".

Hugs & Love from me to you,
Jagerschnitzel, served with homemade french fries. Delish!

I love this time of year because sweet potatoes are one of my favorite comfort foods, just baked one for dinner. Great menu.

schnitzel is the best form of comfort food around. have you tried it w/ red cabbage and cottage cheese noodles? i am not close w/the german side of my fam. but i have taught myself how on my own. i think i may just post them here :)
Dec. 6, 2009 1:44 am
ok, the red cabbage recipe i used was grandma jeanette's awesome red cabbage. i placed everything in a slow cooker. i added a chopped onion. high 30 mins. low 2-3 hrs. i thought the vinegar was overpowering. but the next day awesome. so make it a day ahead.

Thank you MissDrea :) My retired AF husband lived in Germany 5 years, I'm excited to surprise him with the Jagerschnitzel.
Dec. 8, 2009 5:04 am
Hi Cindy, Really enjoy your blog!!! For anyone interested...Schnitzel in Germany is eaten with french fries or boiled potatoes and a green salad. Next time someone makes the red cabbage add some tart apples---really good!!!

About Me
I grew up in Stockton, CA and then lived most of my 1st married life in Lemoore, CA. We raised our 3 boys (twins and one more 20 months later)up together but when the youngest son graduated from high school, I realized life was too short to stay in an unhappy, dead marriage. After 23 years, a divorce and a new life. I moved to the Biloxi, MS area and met my wonderful husband now. He is all I could ask for. We have a kitty and a camper and we love them both! She camps with us all the time. I quit my job in August, '08 and my husband is retired (again) so we are enjoying our time together. ***UPDATE*** I'm working again and really liking my job. I don't have to bring it home with me and it's 32 hours per week, which works out perfect. Very happy to report that we are very happy again with a new job!!!
My favorite things to cook
My new favorite is finding low fat, healthy recipes to try. I'm really up for anything to cook.. it's truly my hobby.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Right now I would have to say that having a fish fry is the closest thing to a tradition I have. Not healthy but it sure is good! Fried fresh caught fish, hushpuppies, okra, french fries. All deep fried and all soooo good!!
My cooking triumphs
Beef Tenderloin With Roasted Shallots from this site. I served it to guests and they could not believe that this was a home made meal. For something so easy it's the best meal I've ever made. Also feel very good about my submitted recipes. I'm not one to usually make something up but I like to follow recipes and then maybe make a few tweaks to our liking and needs.
My cooking tragedies
HAHA - It still makes me laugh. My very first meal I cooked for my 1st husband was supposed to be eggs, bacon and pancakes but the skillet I tried to use was not a non-stick. Needless to say.. we had scrambled eggs, torn up bacon, and worst of all, scrambled pancakes.
