Cindy's Menu for Feb 22 - Feb 28

Hello my friends!  What a weekend.. we put up rain gutter on the front of the house, which is only about 50 feet wide total.  The trip to Lowes was $204.00 for that 50 feet of gutter and the supplies.  It was sticker shock for sure!  Anyway, we spent 9 hours on Saturday standing on ladders and cussing a lot.. putting up gutter is not as easy as it looks!!  Anyway, we did finally get it up.  We have a huge old oak tree that hangs right over our house and the leaves are relentless.  We spent all day Sunday (today) putting up the gutter guard ($39 more) so that the leaves don't clog up the gutters again.  Anyway, as I told my dearest hubby, I gotta go to work tomorrow to get some rest!

Life was good last week, stuck to the menu pretty much.  I did make some great peach cobbler today, what a nice treat after a long 2 days of work!

On to the menu for this week:

Monday - February 22 - Cindy's Beef Tips with mashed potatoes and green beans.  I love this great comfort meal. 

Tuesday - February 23 - Slow Cooker Bar B Que Ribs with rice pilaf.  I have some frozen baby backs that I'll have Sam put into the crockpot.  I use the Rice-a-Roni Wild Rice pilaf made with no butter.  It tastes just as good to me and no fat used.  Yummm

Wednesday - February 24 -  Roast Sticky Chicken Rotisserie Style.  Roasted new potatoes with steamed broccoli.  If you haven't tried this chicken, you really should.  It tastes better than the store bought chickens and you know what goes in it!

Thursday - February 25 - Grilled hamburgers and chips.  I do eat the baked Lays.. a little more healthy and they satisfy that craving.

Friday - February 26 - Honey Walnut Shrimp with steamed rice.  I always keep a little container of sweetened condensed milk in the freezer just for this meal.  It only uses 1 T of the SC milk but it makes it so good.  I buy the fat-free kind, I can't tell the difference at all.  You don't save much in calories but boy, have you looked at the fat content of regular SC milk???

Saturday - February 27 - No-Fuss Chicken.  This will be my first time making this recipe, but it looks pretty yummy.  I'll use the reduced fat margarine for the butter.

Sunday - February 28 - (Can you believe it's March tomorrow??) - Waikiki Meatballs.  Roasted potatoes.

That's it, here's hoping this helps you plan some good meals for your family.  My family is just me and my hubs (and the kitty) but I still like to make a good meal each night.  I love taking the leftovers for lunch the next day, it saves so much money.

Love to you and yours, be sure to hug and kiss them every single day!!


This was fantastic, Waikiki Meatballs. I added red, green and orange bell peppers, and some broccol

Hi Cindy! Sounds like you are staying busy. Saturday was the most decent weather we've had in a LONG time and I spend the day getting my flowerbeds ready for spring and playing with my chickens. Today I kept busy making a couple of really good soups. I got a hook-up on the leek soup mix and plan on making your chowder as soon as I get it in the mail. Have a wonderful week and happy eating!

Thank you so much Nicole.. yes, yesterday was the best day so far in this year! Sunshine and 65 degrees. It was truly a wonderful day to be outside, thank goodness! I even got a little red cheekness going!

Feb. 21, 2010 6:35 pm
seaside, that sounds very good. I'm not a sweet potato casserole lover, I only like them baked like a baked potato with butter, salt & pepper on them. I also like them simply roasted with some evoo and salt & pepper. Have fun with your family!!

Thanks for sharing your menu. Got some good ideas. Can't wait to try the Waikiki meatballs!

Cindy, you mentioned that you are cooking for just you and your husband. Some of the meals you are fixing make quite a few Wednesday's chicken meal. What do you do with the leftovers? Do you freeze them? Any tips on freezing if you what to freeze and not to long to freeze, etc?

Thanks for sharing these recipes. I, too, am a weekly planner. If I don't have a hugely busy weekend, I try to cook ahead a bit...roasting chicken and such and I *always* take leftovers for lunch. I'm always surprised by the number of people that find the fact that I cook every night "amazing."
Feb. 21, 2010 11:04 pm
As always, great ideas Cindy, thanks! I think I'll add the ribs and rotisserie chicken to my rotation. The leftovers ALWAYS go to lunch in my house too. Have a great week!

Nice post. Sounds delicious!

Another great menu, Cindy...thanks!

Paula, most of our meals are for about 4 people. We eat the meal at night and then the next day it is our both lunches. Now, I do freeze quite a few things too. Chili - I place a large zip-lock in a bowl and then put the leftover chili in it and flatten out to take out most of the air and freeze. Turns out perfect when let thaw in the fridge. I also freeze stew, spagetti sauce, meatloaf, etc. Hope this helps you! And to the rest of you, thank you so much for your kind comments.. I look forward to reading them every night!

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.
