Week 7 Menu and Easy Chocolate Cookies

Wow, a week has already flown by. I still haven't made swedish meatballs. I think it's been on my menu for the last few weeks. Hopefully it will happen tomorrow. Here's my menu for this next week:

Swedish Meatballs, Mashed Potatoes & Gravy


Florentine Shells

Broccoli Cheese Soup in Breadbowls

Chicken Salad Pitas

Porcupine Meatballs with rice

Cafe Rio Pork Salad (find recipe here)

Left-over Pork Salad or tacos

**Thanks to my great SIL Melinda for posting her menu this week. I used some of her ideas for my menu this week. Go ahead and post your menu this week! Thanks!

Here's a easy recipe for two kinds of cookies using a cake mix!

Easy Chocolate Cookie Dough
1 box devils food cake mix
2 eggs
1/4 c. applesauce
1/4 c. oil
2 T. flour (if needed to make dough easier to roll into balls)

Oreo Cookies
Roll chocolate cookie dough into balls and roll in powdered sugar. Bake at 350 for 9 minutes. When cookies are cool, frost bottom of cookie and top with another cookie making a sandwich.

3 T. butter
1 c. powdered sugar (or more)
1 1/2 T. milk
1/4 tsp. vanilla

Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Cookies
Mix peanut butter chips (1 c.) into chocolate cookie dough. Form into balls. Bake at 350 for 9 minutes.


  1. What are Florentine Shells? Will you post the recipe? I would love to try something new! I have my menu planned out through Wednesday, because I can't think much further than that.
    Mon: Hawaiian Haystacks
    Tues: Baked Potato Soup
    Wed: R&C Pasta Bake

  2. Thank you for posting these! I love good recipes with shortcuts (like using a cake mix!) I can't wait to make them, especially the oreos. I'll have to make sure I give some away...I'm gaining weight right now (which is fine), but I don't want to gain more than I need to. Did I tell you that I told someone at 7 WEEKS that I was pregnant and they said "Oh, I was wondering if you might be...." Mortification!!!!
