Cindy's Menu for Dec 28 - Jan 3 ~ Happy New Year!

Hello all my AR friends!  Another year, another decade starting.  Do you say Two Thousand Ten or Twenty Ten??  I'm going to try to say Twenty Ten so we get in that habit just like we used to say Nineteen Ten, not One Thousand Nine Hundred Ten.  :)  Just an observation for the New Year and New Decade!!

We had a wonderful Christmas, quiet on Christmas day with just the two of us.  My dearest husband gave me a wonderful Christmas card with beautiful sentiments that I know he means every day.  On the day after Christmas we went up to his sister's house where she provided the ham and I provided the dill dip and veggies, cheese ball and crackers, deviled eggs, baked beans, potato salad, and steamed carrots.  I also took Oreo Truffles and peanut butter fudge and Cindy's Best Fudge :)  It was a hit all around!

On to the menu for the next week.  I've changed my dates to start on Mondays now, it will be easier for me to make my menu on Sunday afternoons.  Alas, I am starting a temp job on the 5th so meal planning will be even more important.  I'll be home by 4:15 each afternoon so there will still be time to make a nice dinner.  I've been freezing leftovers the past week and that will make some easy meals for when I do start working again.

Monday - Dec 28 - Cindy's Beef Tips, steamed rice and steamed broccoli.

Tuesday - Dec 29 - Pizza Moons

Wednesday - Dec 30 - Jagershnitzel with french fries and green beans.

Thursday - Dec 31 - Chicken Marsala with angel hair pasta and salad.

Friday - Jan 1 - Happy New Year!!  Cindy's Jambalaya (one pot meal with leftovers!)

Saturday - Jan 2 - Baked chicken and rice with a salad and homemade bread.

Sunday - Jan 3 - Leftovers of all the good stuff from last week!

Here's hoping you and yours have a wonderful New Year celebration and that the next year brings health, happiness, and love to you.

Cindy's Jambalaya!

Love your menus, Cindy! I used to make weekly menus, but really had trouble sticking to them. I should try again. Thanks for the motivation!

Hi Cindy! It is only the two of us here as well and I sometimes get sad and envious of the large family feasts I hear everyone talking about but I am glad to see you and your hubby had a wonderful Christmas. This menu looks delicious and I hope you take a picture of your Jambalya. I always look forward to your blog and your pictures. Have a great day and if I don't see you before, Happy New Year!

Looks like a great week of meals Cindy. BTW I did make your fudge family loved it and took the leftovers to work and co workers won't leave me alone now. It was a total hit!! Easy and one of the best tasting fudges I have EVER made!!! Yet another slam dunk from our one and only Cindy!!

Wow ladybuggs, thanks so much. That fudge recipe is about 40 years old.. I've been making it since I was in my 20's and my mom was making it before me :) I'm so glad you liked it. Hopefully it will be published!

Thanks for the inspiration to cook again, Cindy. I've been pretty burned out these past few days. I'll be making your Jambalaya this week. The Pizza Moons will be great for New Years Eve. I'll also be looking to beef on sale to make your beef tips. Yum! Happy New Year.

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.
