Thursday - -
Chicken, Rice, and Corn on the Cob

Friday - -
Potato-Veggie Frittata

2 T vegetable oil
1 small onion, peeled and chopped fine
1 pound small new potatoes, cut into quarters and parboiled
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
8 large eggs
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp dried rosemary
1 cup mixed veggies (broccoli, carrots, mushrooms...)
1/4 pound sliced ham, chopped
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Heat oven to 375 degrees. In a 12-inch nonstick skillet with oven-proof handle heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion; saute 2 minutes. Add potatoes, salt and pepper; cook, stirring occasionally, 10 minutes.

In medium bowl, with whisk, lightly beat eggs, Parmesan cheese, and rosemary. Stir egg mixture and chopped ham into vegetables; cook 3 minutes. Place in heated oven; bake 10 minutes. (I find it needs a bit more time.) Sprinkle top with mozzarella cheese. Bake 5 minutes more until egg is set and cheese is melted.

My grocery list for menu plan this week:
  • Lettuce
Additional Items that are on sale and/or I have coupon for (items that we use frequently):
  • Ranch Dressing
  • Tortillas

We have a lot of garden fresh tomatoes and cucumbers that will be ready soon! Let me know if you have any simple, yet yummy meals with these items! :) THANKS!


  1. mmm. Sounds good. I need to make pot pies again.

    My favorite fair food is junk stuff (popcorn, corndogs, nachos). We were going to hit the fair on Tuesday but decided it was going to cost to much ($12 each plus $10 parking). Have fun!

  2. Oh yeah... clicked on all your flairs. What a great idea.

  3. Great menu, I'll have to try your chicken pot pie recipe, I've never made one before. Thanks for visiting my blog, I'll try to have that recipe for sweet and sour chicken up today.

  4. Your pot pie recipe looks very yummy and easy! Thanks for sharing!

    Hmmmm favorite state fair food ... Probably gonna be roasted corn. We usually get a funnel cake too.

    Good luck with your tomatoes and cucumbers! One of my favorite things to do with cucumbers is to make what we call "Refigerator Pickles" Just slice up about 3 or 4 cucumbers in a large bowl. Add a couple slices of onion (to taste). Then, add about 1 cup of vinegar about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of sugar, 1/2 to 1 cup of water. (Depends on how strong and sweet you like them to be). Add just black pepper to taste. Let set overnight in the fridge. Yum!!!

  5. Oooh, I'm so proud of you for doing this! I just posted about a week's worth of posts to my blog (read and find out why they were missing!) and did my menu planning for this week. I so wanted corn on the cob but it wasn't on sale this week. :(

    Ok, double oooh...I just noticed I'm on your Favorite (umm..hon, typo'd favorite) Bloggy Flowers. I feel so honored! Woo!

    hehe..okie, gonna stop spamming your blog now but yay for your post! I can't wait to see the new, we need pictures!

  6. I've gotta have a corndog every year... Mmmmmm, makes me hungry thinking about one! Haha! :)
