MPM: 10/13-10/19

Last week was pretty good - I made ALL the meals! Okay, I know there were only three but still... :)

This week, I'm in the mood to try a couple of new recipes and in my farm fresh bin, I received a giant leek and some yams (sweet potatoes) so I thought I would find new recipes to use those ingredients. Both of the new recipes are from Food Network and received rave reviews!

Monday - Sloppy Joes, Corn on the Cob, Chips, Grapes

Tuesday - Crockpot Sesame Pork Chops, Brown Rice, Salad

Wednesday - Potato & Leek Soup, Pear & Apple Romaine Salad (I will use some spring mix in addition to romaine & pecans instead of walnuts), Bread

Thursday - Flex day - Andrew will probably work late at least one night...

Friday - Sausage & Mushroom Pizza, Pretzels or Chips, Apples, Carrots, Cookies

Saturday - Dinner with Andrew's Firm

I did it by day this week - based on schedule and the order some ingredients need used. This week will hopefully be a bit calmer than the last few! Check out for more menus!

Thank you so much for posting the link to the Sweet Potato Pancakes. I have been looking for a few recipes with pumpkin in it for my sons to try, and this one sounds delicious.
