Weekend Recap & Menu Planner

Success! Camille & Clyde did awesome in the wedding this weekend. We only bribed them a few times with M&M's and one trip to Toys R Us! It was a gorgeous wedding with perfect weather!

I have to say we were a bit nervous after this scene at the rehearsal.

But they pulled it all together and did great! With the exception of Clyde being slightly vocal at the ceremony and telling everyone "I saw my mommy. She is right back there." Followed by him repeating the word "pillow" about 20 times. Oh and he knocked a fern over but still I consider it a success. Camille was a perfect angel....were you expecting anything less from her?

I was so proud of them!

We are resting up today....here is this week's menu planner.

Sunday - Taco's with Ground Chicken

Monday - Spicy Sausage Spaghetti Pie

Tuesday - Asian Braised  Pork with Green Beans (Note: this calls for a Pork Shoulder or Boston Butt which can be very large. Today at Kroger the butcher offered to cut it in half for me when I asked if he has any smaller so you may want to try that). Recipe below.

Wednesday - White Bean Tortellini Soup

Thursday - Quick Fix Beef Bourguignon

Asian Braised Pork courtesy of Woman's Day
1/4 C soy sauce
1/2 tsp ground allspice
1/4 to 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
1/4 C brown sugar
1-inch piece of ginger, thinly sliced
2 1/2 lb boneless pork shoulder, trimmed and cut into 2-inch pieces
Hot cooked rice

In a slow cooker, combine the soy sauce, allspice, red pepper, brown sugar and ginger. Add the pork and toss to coat. Cover and cook until meat is tender, on low 7 to 8 hours or on high for 5 to 6 hours.
