Weekly Menu #2

Weekly Menu #2

Welcome again, to The Cherry On Top's Weekly Menu!

We had a bit of a crazy weekend with illness and unplanned camping so I'm using a couple of last week's recipes again, but I'll make new ones for you.

Monday:  Soup N' Sandwiches (click on the image for the pumpkin soup recipe)



I'm the one who is sick.  So, today, I'm whipping up some soup from all of the veggies that are still sitting in the refrigerator.  Home made soup is so easy to make.  Wash the veggies that are still sitting in your fridge.  Cut them up in large pieces, throw them in the pot, add some salt, pepper and maybe a touch of veggie bouillon.  (Just watch how salty it is.)

The easy version to buy some pre made soup.  I always have soup in the cabinet!  My grocer sells an awesome organic soup in a bottle.  Just shake, open, pour in a mug and voila!  Mmmm...Check out the ingredients.  Most package soup is pretty darn good especially if there is no meat in it.

Serve up your favour…

Welcome, to The Cherry On Top!  
I've got Boutique Cute Doll on feature today.  "Between The Pages" is the newest release and in typical BCD fashion, it is FABulous!
The kit is linked up to the store, where it is on sale, but only for a couple more days.  Grab it while it's this cheap!

Here are the two book marks I made with "Between The Pages".  The first one you can get right here.    (Click, choose Media Options, then choose download.) The second one you have to get from the BCD blog.  Click on the image and it will take you there.


If I were you, I'd laminate these!  It will make them extra rigid and water resistant, too!
I also provided you with a link where you can get these FREE bookmarks that Terresa has made.

Everything here is for private use only.  You may share our links, but not the images, please.

Weekly Menu #1 From The Cherry On Top

Welcome to The Cherry On Top's first weekly menu planner!!!

I am super excited to bring it to you.  I've been planning weekly menus for years now and it saves so much hassle, time, money and there are not nearly so many left overs in the fridge either.  You will not believe how much less discussions occur over what's for dinner!

I plan my menu everyday Sunday either behind my computer or with  some recipe books.  If I'm in a pinch for time, I just go back to my agenda and look through and choose stuff from there as well.

Eventually, I might put the  menus in different levels according to time and preparation, but most of the menus, especially those during the week will be made in 20 minutes or less.  If you find it takes longer than that, just give it time until ya get better acquainted with the system.

I must also share with you my experience with time saving.  My biggest time saver is my stove.  I use gas and it is truly my favourite method to cook.  I would bet that…
