Menu idea

Good Morning!  I must admit today I am feeling a bit "splendiflorous", lol.  Must be the size 8 jeans on my bum today.  Samantha, my 17 year old, tells me that I got a pair of Abercrombie and Fitch jeans.  Apparently that is what all the kids are wearing these days, lol.  They are the second pair that I got, the ones that were 50% off, so they were only $6.49. 

Of course, the name brand tags are all cut off, like I care about tags.  The only tag I care about is the one that says...did I tell ya this yet?  SIZE 8!  LMBO...sorry, it's just been so long since I've seen that number on anything of mine. 

Alrighty back on track here.  It is Monday which means it is time for a dinner menu idea.  How about a cheap and easy roast?


"Cheap" Round Bone or Blade Cut Roast

1 pkg. dry onion soup mix

1 can cream of mushroom soup

Aluminum foil, wide heavy duty

Preheat oven to 350degrees. Tear off about 2 1/2 to 3 feet of foil. Fold in half. Lay roast in iddle of foil. Spread both soups over roast. Wrap and seal so juices won't drip out. (I also set the foil package on top of a cookie sheet or in a large rectangular pan.  Just in case of any dripage)  Cook 3 hours at 350degrees. Be careful when you unwrap foil, so juices don't spill. Great because the cleanup is so easy!

This recipe makes its own gravy.  Serve with mashed potatoes a veggie and hot rolls.

For dessert, how about something with Oreo's?  Yeah, I am craving chocolate this week.  Don't worry I've got my little bag of sugar free goodies in my drawer.


25 Oreo chocolate sandwich cookies, coarsely crushed (about 2 1/2 cups crumbs), divided

1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk

3/4 cup peanuts, chopped

3/4 cup miniature marshmallows

2 squares white baking chocolate, chopped

Preheat oven to 350degrees. Sprinkle 2 cups of the crumbs onto bottom of well-greased 9-inch square baking pan. Pour condensed milk evenly over crumbs.

Bake 25 minutes; sprinkle with peanuts, marshmallows, chopped chocolate and remaining crumbs. Continue baking 3 to 5 minutes or until chocolate is melted and marshmallows just begin to brown. Cool completely in pan.

Oh mah gosh!  I think I need to stop writing about food now.  I really need to do this after I eat breakfast, lol.

Have a great week everyone!
