The little Clay Pot

Lots of things can go in a little Clay Pot

Weekly Menu 6.13.10-6.19.10 June 8, 2010


Hamburger’s on the Grill, Salad & Grilled Potatoes

Easily moved inside in case of inclement weather.  Hamburger’s are hamburgers no matter how you do them. We add some spices and what ever else we feel “in the mood” for.

For the potatoes you can spread a little olive oil on tin foil, add spices as you like, experiment here!  Wrap potatoes in foil and grill with the lid closed for about 45 min.~ Till Potatoes are soft when poked with a fork.   Start hamburgers after the potatoes are going.


Tuna sandwiches, Egg salad sandwiches, Carrot/Celery Sticks & fruit

Home made bread makes a killer sandwich. Kids will get their choice of what kind of sandwich they want and the adults will probably have one of each.

*Note* Tuesday nights my husband has a commitment at 6:00 pm…so I want an easy no fuss meal.  If you have a similar situation just switch nights on your menu.


Smoked Chicken, Salt Potatoes, Salad & Bread

I have never smoked meat before, so this is new…I will be reading up on the internet before I do it. But I could just as easily use the crock pot, or the oven.

My husband was flabbergasted to find out that salt potatoes are a north eastern thing…If you happen to live in a salt potato deprived region…I am very sorry.  *GRIN*  They are basically small potatoes cooked in very salty water, that are drained and left to sit for a minute so that the salt crystallizes on the skin.  Serve with melted butter.  Save the left over Chicken, potatoes and butter for tomorrow night.


Chef Salad, Fried potatoes, and Bread

Left over chicken on salad with hard boiled eggs, cheese and whatever else tickles your fancy.  Quarter left over salt potatoes, fry in left over butter.  Add Fresh snipped chives and dill if you have it.  Season to taste.  Same exact food…entirely different meal.



Home made or take out…Friday night pizza is a must.


Tacos, Spanish Rice, & Refried Beans

Just do it the way you like it.


Pork Loin Roast, Mashed potatoes, Green beans & Bread

I was lucky enough to see a huge pork loin on sale for $1.49 a lb a few weeks ago.  Not Local, and most definitely not organic…but a pork loin that I can get three meals out of at that price is a good buy in my book.  I still have two sections left in my freezer and this meal will be one of them.
