What’s Cookin’ In Copper’s Kitchen This Week

     We missed a couple of dishes on last week’s menu, so I’m recycling one of them over to this week.  Poor Will, he was really looking forward to spaghetti last week.  It’s one of his favorite meals!  I promised him we’d carry it over to this week.

     The only new-to-me recipe this week will be Thursday evening when we make up a batch of Ree’s Apple Dumplings.    The Mountain Dew lover in the house even graciously submitted the necessary can of that particular beverage to the cause.  Corin & Rob and the grandbabies will be here, so it will be fun to have these with them.  It’ll keep us from eating the entire batch by ourselves, too!  I do have a couple of recipes to share with you this week, though.  Those are marked with an * in the menu below and I’ll share them later this week, probably late in the day that they are prepared.  Be sure to click on over to this week’s Menu Plan Monday for more menu planning ideas. 

     Breakfast:  Waffles (made by Copper!)
     Lunch:  Homemade Tomato Soup, french bread (from our freezer stash)

God bless you as you look well to the ways of your household!

  • I saw those apple dumplings on her blog and have wanted to make them. But I keep forgetting to buy Mt. Dew (it’s not something we drink). They sure do look delicious. Thanks for the menu ideas and links to recipes!

  • Those apple dumplings are on my menu this week too! Oh, they look sooo good! We are also going to try your salisbury steaks. This is the first week I have tried planning all three meals. I have been in the habit of planning suppers but then at lunch time we stand around wondering what we can fix! It feels good to have it all planned out and know that you have something here to fix.

  • I have one problem with this menu…..Chicken Enchiladas on St. Patricks Day??? The Irish in me is really having a problem with your menu! πŸ˜†

  • No corned beef and cabbage here.  My husband can’t stand the stuff, but the Irish in me misses it greatly.  I usually plan corned beef and cabbage for St. Patrick’s day when my husband will be at work, but never when he’s home.  He and I are actually headed to a steak house in town to meet friends for dinner anyway. 

  • The apple dumplings are absolutely DELICIOUS. I neighther like mt. dew, apple pie or dumplings (I like my apples natural), but made this for my family. My husband shares my feelings about apples, but the mt. dew caught his attention. We all loved them. You might want to make 2 pans with Corin and her family comming over ; ) It would be a shame to not have enough.


  • I’m with Will…Spaghetti is the best!  I could eat it every night.  And we won’t be eating the corned beef and cabbage either.   Chris nor I like the stuff.  The Ree’s apple dumplings look so yummy, of course all of her food looks and tastes delicious.  I’ve tried a few.

  • Hi there!  I’ve been a lurker for quite some time and you have inspired me many times to be a better wife and mother.  Thanks!  Wanted to let you know that those apple dumplings have become a favorite here in our home.  Even my husband, who doesn’t like apples when peaches are so much better, loves them.  In fact, we had them for desert tonight!  Hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
