Menu Plan - Jan. 10

We had the great pleasure of enjoying a week and a half with my family in the frozen tundra last week. After we surprised my sister and saw her off for her trip to Africa, we spent the next few days playing games and eating yummy food. As usual, when I visit, my "gift" to my parents is to cook! We had a great, yummy and filling menu plan last week.

My mom and I had a great time cooking and eating together in her kitchen. Then, we'd go workout together too! We cooked up a storm... and I have lots more yummy recipes to come in my series: From My Mom's Kitchen.

Sweet and Sour Pork

Orange Cranberry Muffins

Crockpot Chicken Parmesan

Mushroom and Barley Soup

Taco Dip

Wheat French Bread

Broiled Grapefruit

Baked Doughnuts
