Our Menu (Week of June 3, 2012)

It may not officially be summer, but it’s definitely summer here.  I’m going to keep on grilling and using my slow cooker this week whenever I can.  I also didn’t stick to our menu 100% last week so I’ll carry over a couple items.  My husband’s aunt gave us a lot of huge, delicious avocadoes from her tree so I’m implementing them into meals wherever I can.  :)

We’re also eating up some of the scrumptious English muffin bread I made.  So darn good.

Here’s what’s on our menu this week:

  • German apple pancakes, pineapple juice, raspberries
  • Oatmeal with dried cherries & flax, o.j.

  1. Everything looks great! Do you have a recipe for your pork chops with mushroom sauce? I’m always looking for new ways to cook pork chops since I can usually find good deals on them!
    We are loving that it is summer fruit and grilling season as well! We bought a quart of strawberries at our farmer’s market last weekend and half of it was gone before we even got out of the market! haha! :)
