Menu for the July

I'm getting into this kind of late, but I really like to post what we've eaten for the month so that I have a record for next July.  Helps to not forget the stuff that worked and the stuff that didn't.

July, 2011


BBQ at niece's house - we smoked pork loins, smoked chicken, and briskit to take out to their house (they bought - we just did the smokin!)

Fried chicken, mashed potatoes, green beans (Rebecca cooked dinner for us.)

Lasagna, and garlic bread

Hamburger Soup, HM biscuits (Rachel made dinner)

BBQ chicken & hamburgers on the grill, baked potatoes, quarters of cabbage in foil packets on the grill (from Miss Sharon at the Farmer's Market) and 5-minute a day hoecakes made in the skillet with a little butter -YUM, YUM & YUM!

Tacos / Taco salads  - make your own

BBQ brats (at 4th of July BBQ) - I took Sweet & Sour Pasta Salad

Spaghetti (always lots of spaghetti!  Sometimes once a week LOL!)

Breakfast for Supper (gravy made with local Osage Valley sausage), HM biscuits, tator tots and yellow squash (not a breakfast food but its in season and my younger daughter and I JUST LOVE it)

Smoked ham on the grill - turned out great!  Definitely do again!

Lots of leftovers (leftover smoked pork & smoked ham, spaghetti)

BBQ pork steaks

Chicken fajitas using banana peppers & bell peppers from the garden.  (Hubby just had chicken & leftover potatoes - he doesn't "do" fajitas; he's missing out); cheese beans using a can of black beans - YUM!

Beanie Weanies & spaghetti & cheese (like mac and cheese; I just like to use spaghetti pasta)

Crockpot Chicken & Biscuits, mashed potatoes, green beans and of course, HM biscuits


5 minute a day bread  (tried baking outside in the 100+ heat but didn't allow for enough time) (Baked on the grill)

garlic bread (just store bought loaf, sliced in half lengthwise and slathered in butter/garlic powder

HM biscuits


Best Ever Cinnamon Rolls for the Garage Sale

HM biscuits made with 1/4 cup additional milk and cooked in a butter skillet; these little "hoe cakes" were terrific with sausage gravy instead of heating up the oven on a HOT day!

Breakfasts (what a bunch of carbs)

HM chocolate chip muffins  (Plain muffin recipe from Hillbilly Housewife + choco chips)
HM apple/oat muffins (Plain muffin recipe, subbing in 1 cup oats & grated apple & 1/2 t cinnamon)
HM pancakes
HM 5 minute a day (leftover) hoecakes
HM biscuits (leftover)
HM biscuits with Gerke's Osage Valley Farms sausage gravy - YUM!
Pumpkin chocolate chip bread baked in cans (from the freezer)
HM zucchini bread cooked in fruit cans in my crockpot


Peanut butter sandwiches on wheat bread
Hot dogs
Leftovers (green beans from my garden)
Sliced cucumbers from my garden
First tomato sandwich of the summer
Pigs in a blanket.  These were great!


cherry jello with bananas (I took this as "lunch dessert" :) )
HM chocolate mayonnaise cake with white frosting
HM chocolate icecream
HM Cherry Cobbler (I got this recipe from www.joyinmy  in the crockpot using cherries from my freezer that I got from my niece (I loved making my own pie filling.  So easy!  Why have I not done this sooner?  Sweetened the cherries - and thickened with corn starch.)  Great recipe!
HM chocolate mint ice cream
HM banana pudding made with HM vanilla pudding (used graham crackers instead of vanilla wafers because that's what I had and it turned out fine!)


HM microwave kettle corn (excellent!) (used a lunch sack, reg popcorn, splash of oil, salt & sugar)
