Menu Plan Monday: Baby, It Got Cold Outside

The Mid-Atlantic has so far been granted another mild winter. Last year our total snowfall was not even memorable (really! I can't even find records!). Along with that it was also easy on the bundling up. This winter was proving to be  the same except for that Christmas Eve Mixed Blessing that created a White Christmas morning, but a treacherous drive for services the night before. Then the other little one that popped up on our way to the ER for my snapped metatarsal. Glad we avoided another accident in the hospital parking lot!!
The Black Horse Troop of Culver. Our nephew is in the second row!
    This past Sunday and Monday were just what the White House ordered for the Presidential Inaugural: mostly above average temps and sunny skies. The parade that included our nephew was pulled off without a security or meteorological hitch! But come Tuesday, WHAM! Party's O-VER! Highs in the 20's and lows in the teens.
     So let's have some warm-up food from 5Dinners1Hour.com to take away the chill! Then  find more ideas to fight the chill at Organizing Junkie!


Herbed Pork Chops
Carrots (I like to add a splash of orange juice and a tablespoon of honey during cooking)



Black Bean Stuffed Peppers
Green Salad with avocado


Oven Fried Tilapia
Brown Rice (they'll eat it-or anything-with soy sauce)
Green Beans



Slow-Cooked Honey Sesame Chicken
Sugar Snap Peas
Green Salad with mandarin oranges and almonds

Friday (Ice and snow may be on the menu too...)

LO Buffet


Spicy Steak Bites
Mashed Potatoes
Asparagus Spears (frozen. A cold snap in CA has sent fresh through the roof. Be warned)


DITK: Dad's in the Kitchen!

Got Menu? Tell Mother all about it! Comments warm ME up every time!


  1. Wow! We had temps like that in Las Vegas a week ago! I'm so glad it's warming up.
    MPM definitely keeps me on track. I just need to work on getting it posted by Monday!
    Your menu plan looks delicious.
    Have a wonderful week!

  2. I heard about your crazy temps! I have a cousin in San Diego who hails from Boston. I'm sure she never thought she'd see a chill like that again! Thanks for stopping by!
