Menu Plan Monday - May 16

Menu Plan Monday is found at Organizing Junkie.

A sweet gal in our Sunday night life group bought me the Fix-It and Forget-It Diabetic Cookbook. I'd shared a few weeks ago my frustrations with trying to cook for my husband and not knowing how to make his meals tasty yet diabetic friendly. I was so touched by my friend's thoughtfulness that I nearly cried when she, almost embarrassingly, handed me this cookbook wrapped in red paper. I'm telling you, she's in touch with God and she uses her spiritual gifts for Him - one of them is hospitality sprinkled nicely with compassion.

The cookbook is a good one in that it not only has literally tons of slow cooker recipes but it also has information about carbohydrate counting and balancing everything out. It's one I will keep and use for sure.

For those of you making homemade yogurt in your slow cookers: I made a large batch a couple of days ago and used Greek yogurt as the starter culture - and I've had the thickest batch of yogurt I've ever had as a result. It is SO good! We used some for strawberry smoothies tonight and my husband ranted and raved about how smooth and tasty they were. I always use very little sugar in our smoothies and the plain yogurt gave it a certain zing.

Here's what we're planning this week:


Chicken Piccata (subbing vinegar for white wine)
Asparagus w/Cheese Sauce
Oven Roasted Potatoes
Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies


Taco Salad


Baked Potatoes
 Cabbage Saute


Baked Pork Chops over Wild Rice
Green Beans
Tapioca Pudding


Pizza & Pop


Mashed Potatoes
Zucchini Pie


On Your Own
