What’s On Copper’s Table This Week

     I am home from church.  Again.  This week everyone but my husband is sick.  He was healthy and well and we all decided that the best way for him to stay that way was to go to church without us!  We’ve been taking it easy, for the most part, but I was able to work out our menu plan for the next week.

     I forgot to mention before that we liked our corn grits with honey for breakfast just fine!  In fact, William and I loved them!  Dani liked them, and Aaron didn’t much care for them, but that’s the way it is with most everything.  Almost always someone doesn’t particularly care for something or other.  It may not be the “southern” way to have them, but you guys were pretty grossed out by the fish tacos that Dani had for lunch one day, too.  We’ll just chalk it up to cultural differences in the various regions of the country!

     Menu planning has helped us through a couple of crazy-busy weeks.  It’s equally as important this next week as our pantry and freezer stocks have fallen a bit low.  It will keep us on track to have good variety throughout the week.  All recipes marked with an “*” will be shared later this week, most probably late in the day that they are served.  For more menu planning ideas, be sure to check out all the great links at this week’s Menu Plan Monday

  • What is the difference between Basmati rice and regular rice? I see you use it often and wondered. It looks like another wonderful week of eating at your home again! Mmm mmm!

  • Amy – I use brown basmati rice.  You can read about it here http://mideastfood.about.com/od/glossary/g/basmatirice.htm

    It is absolutely wonderful!  The flavor is great, and it smells so good cooking…almost like popcorn!  You can find brown basmati rice in most larger grocery stores and all natural foods stores.

  • Hope you all feel better soon!

    Everything looks good on your menu.  It always makes me hungry when I see your posts about the menu and picures of the food you make.  πŸ™‚  Too bad you can’t do a scratch and sniff feature on your site with the great pictures!  πŸ˜†

  • Dear Cheryl,

    I have missed reading your blog lately, I have been too sick to even sit and read.  However, you have an award awaiting you over at my blog :yes:

  • Those who don’t like fish tacos have never been to Rubio’s :laugh:

  • Cheryl ~ I’m so sorry y’all are feeling poorly. I hope everyone is fully recovered soon! Your meals sound yummy. I should add waffles to my menu soon; hubby loves them and I just don’t make them enough.

    Re: family’s agreeing on their *love* of certain foods. I think the larger a family gets the harder it is to get everyone to agree on things. Brian often makes his sweet grits for himself when I make old-fashioned oatmeal for the family. He just grew to not particularly like the old-fashioned oats as he got older. (But he loves instant oatmeal!:rolleyes:)

    We actually saw fish tacos made on one of the Food Network shows ages ago. They looked yummy ~ but we all love fish. I guess, it’s our Florida background coming out – lol. Having lived all over the United States, JR and I have truly learned that every area has it’s own unique flavors (and personalities, for that matter!).

    Take care!! πŸ™‚

  • Just stopping by, I linked to your site from Melissa’s site. : )  I’ve enjoyed reading and gleaning from your writing and recipes!  I’ll be sticking around off and on today looking at all you share.  May God be glorified!   Blessings!  

  • Thanks so much for the Cherokee Casserole recipe.  I made it last night when I had a bit of a crisis.  I was going to make sloppy joes, but I did not have any sloppy joe sauce, so Cherokee Casserole it was and we loved it.:goodjob:
