Hoping all of you had the nicest, sweetest and most loving Valentines Day!  I did :)  My great husband gave me the most nicest Valentine card and then he built me a new pantry in my sunroom.  It was/is so awesome, and now I'm so organized!  That's the best kind of Valentine present I could think of!  I did grill our tenderloins, baked potatoes, and great green beans.  Homemade rolls.  It was truly a nice day!

I got to take last Friday off, a "snow" day in Florida.  We some some flakes but nothing dramatic.  That's a first in 17 years they said.  I was just glad to have a 4 day weekend since I have President's Day off also.

My stiches are out and my wound has healed nicely.  Thank you all for you best wishes and know you are appreciated, each and every one of you!

On to our menu this week:

Monday - February 15 - Delicious Ham and Potato Soup, home made English Muffin Bread in the Microwave.  Can't wait to try the bread and I've made the soup before using the non-fat 1/2 & 1/2.  Can't wait to have that again.

Tuesday - February 16 - Slow cooker French Dip - this will be easy to put in the crock before work and come home to a great meal.

Wednesday - February 17 - Cindy's Jambalaya .. I make this with shrimp and Conecuh smoked sausage.  It's so yummy, makes a ton, and can be frozen for another meal easily.

Thursday - February 18 - Grilled hamburgers with baked french fries.  MMMMM.. I love me some grilled hamburgers.  I get the best ground beef at the commisary, 93% lean so it is pretty healthy.

Friday - Left over jambalaya.

Saturday - Italian spaghetti with meatballs.  I love this authentic meal.. makes great leftovers too.

Sunday - Oven fried chicken with steamed rice, broccoli and homemade rolls.  I do not fry the chicken pieces, instead I bread them after dipping in Egg Beaters with a seasoned Panko bread crumb.  I coat them very well, lay them on a cooling rack inside my baking sheet and then spray liberally with canola cooking spray.  Bake at 400 for about 12 mintues, turn, spray again, and bake for about 10 more minutes.  Crunchy, delicious and love to dip in bbq sauce.

Hope this week finds you happy, healthy and in love!

Love the idea of the microwave english muffin bread. I'll be trying that tomorrow. Or at least, I'll plan on trying it. You never know what tomorrow brings :)

How did the bread in the microwave turn out? Another great menu!
Feb. 16, 2010 2:46 pm
Barbara, it turned out really good! My hubby said it was one of the best breads I've made. So easy and ready in about 50 minutes. Perfect for a hot summer day since it's in the microwave, no oven needed.

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.
