MONDAY NIGHT MENU and what-a trip!

winter white
day two!

how cute is this little shabby chic roaster?  a gift from my dad no. 2.  i've used it to make a pot roast in... and as we speak, pork chops.  it's marked "california pottery," on the bottom of it, and i'm quite sure it's on the current side of vintage. 

breaking news:
saturday evening, not thinking what i was doing, i scampered down the carpeted basement stairs and slipped and tripped and landed upside down at the bottom of the steps.  i have scraped up hands, what feels like a light sprained wrist, a bruised and or broken big toe, an opposite side, sprained ankle and a banged up knee cap.  (which by the way, i fell off the curb, while out walking the day before.)  some may think this is a wild way to start the new year.. but, looking for the silver-lining, i'm happy to be on the mend and thankful i wasn't hurt worse:  head, hip or leg injury. 

dinner tonight?
pork chops
squash (from our garden- yes it's still good!)
homemade apple sauce
roasted green beans with slivered almonds (pressure canned the beans in september.)

what's on your monday night menu?

Oh, no. I'm so sorry for your falls. Glad it wasn't serious, but nonetheless...ouch. Take care.
Your dinner sounds great! We are having loose meat sandwiches with spinach/pomegranite salad.

We had chicken fajitas with homemade salsa and guacamole-and the best part-my oldest son helped in the kitchen! ;)
