menu monday. {+ 2 recipes}

Can y'all believe it's ALREADY Monday?! 
What in the world happened to the weekend?!

It's that time of the week again ... 
you know, when I impress you all with my CRAZY GOOD cooking skills?! :) 

Here's what on the board for this week: 

~ Monday: Pork Tenderloin and Roasted Veggies
~ Tuesday: Sweet Potato Burgers {if the hubs agrees, if not ... breakfast for din}
~ Wednesday: Pulled Pork Tacos
~ Thursday: Paninis 
~ Friday & Saturday: this girl's out of town ... running a race this weekend! 

Ok now I must share TWO new recipes with y'all ... I made both this weekend and they are TO.DIE.FOR. 

Red Potato Homefries: {via}


  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • yellow onion, sliced
  • 2 pounds (4 medium) red potatoes, boiled and cut into wedges
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • Direction
  • ~ Heat the oil in a large, heavy skillet, preferably cast iron, over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until limp, about 5 minutes
  • Add the potatoes, salt, and pepper. Turning the potatoes over frequently with a metal spatula, cook until crusty, about 15 minutes.

  • These were AMAZING! I will never make another kind of homefrie! :) 

  • And now ... Grand Finale: 
EASY PEASY Sugar Cookies {via}


  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Set aside.

~ In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in egg and vanilla. Gradually blend in the dry ingredients. Roll rounded teaspoonfuls of dough into balls, and place onto ungreased cookie sheets.

~ Bake 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden. Let stand on cookie sheet two minutes before removing to cool on wire racks.

I hope y'all will try these! They were both SO SO GOOD!!! 

Happy Monday Y'all! Hope it's a beautiful one! xo!
