Menu for the Week

Last week I featured three recipes from SOS! The Six O’Clock Scramble to the Rescue. The Tortellini Soup has been a favorite since I made it the first time more than a year ago. The Panko Peanut Crusted Pork Chops were new to us, but they were absolutely delicious. The third recipe, the Cassoulet, was missed as we found ourselves in town from early afternoon through late evening that day. We packed sandwiches and took them with us to avoid eating out while we were gone.

Because we’ve enjoyed almost every single recipe we’ve tried from SOS! The Six O’Clock Scramble to the Rescue, I’ve put four new-to-us recipes from the book on the menu for the coming week. The French Cassoulet we missed last week, two quick and easy chicken dishes, and a slow, simmering beef stew with a southwestern twist. To liven things up even more, Dani is going to make Pioneer Woman’s Pork Chops with Garlic and Wine for us on Monday. The whole week will be a yummy feast!


This is the last week before baseball season begins in earnest for us. I’m hoping to have a practice and game schedule in hand by week’s end so I can plan next week’s menu accordingly. Books like SOS! The Six O’Clock Scramble to the Rescue help keep well balanced, delicious, family-friendly meals on the table without my needing to spend a lot of time in the kitchen prepping and/or cooking dinner.

Here’s our menu for the coming week. Please click on over to Laura’s site to see many, many more menus posted for Menu Plan Monday.
