HAPPY HOMEMAKER & MENU PLAN MONDAY

Been a long week for us here.  Hubby had surgery for a massive shoulder tear that included 3 tendons so I've been busy playing nursemaid making sure he does what he is supposed to, but really making sure he doesn't do what he isn't supposed to.

Be sure to link up with Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom for Happy homemaker Monday and with Laura at I'm an Organizing Junkie for Menu Plan Monday.

SUCCESSFUL RECIPES FROM LAST WEEK
Nothing new this week with hubby's surgery.

RECIPE FINDS TO TRY AT A LATER DATE
With hubby's surgery last week I had A LOT of time in the waiting room to search all their old magazines for recipes and I found some fun sounding ones at that.
  • Baked Stuffed French Toast (Savory Style)
  • Gingerbread cake with Buttermilk Frosting
  • Pork Tenderloin with Balsamic Strawberry Glaze
  • Bananas Foster Coffee Cake with Vanilla Rum Sauce
  • Banana Brownie Sticky Toffee Pudding
  • Bacon Onion Tart
  • Roasted Cider Brined Pork Loin with Green Tomato Chutney
  • Mexican Hot Chocolate Mousse
  • Sunday Sauce (Savory)
  • Rainbow Angel Food Cake
  • Citrus Cookie Bars
  • Ginger Basil Vinaigrette
  • Peach Poppy Seed Vinaigrette
  • Red Pepper Jelly Vinaigrette
HOMEMAKING TIP
Slice an apple and leave the pieces in areas with strong odors.  After a few days, the apple slices will be brown and dry and odor will be replaced with the scent of apple.

ON MY MIND
Absolutely nothing - just trying to gather more than 2 hours sleep at a time so I can think straight. Shoulder injuries are kind of like having a new born baby - there is always ice to change and pillows to fluff to try and get him comfortable for another bout of sleep.

FAVORITE PHOTO
Found this on the camera drive this week when I was cleaning out the old stuff.  He's about 40 feet tall and made out of corrugated tin, just wish he looked happy.

  1. So glad your hubby is ok Tamy! I feel your pain - my hubby had shoulder surgery this past winter including a major bicep repair too. Fun to be nursemaid, huh? Lol

    I love some of the new recipes you found. Several sound amazing!! And that dog pic is amazing, but I agree he looks kind of threatening. ;)

    Happy healing week ahead! xo
