Pinteresting Menu Monday

I am not a great cook. I like to cook as long as someone else cleans and I don't have to help and the food turns out amazing.

Currently, I have only tried ONE pinterest recipe. And it was okay but didn't look as good as the picture and of course wasn't as amazing they said it would be.

But I am trying to make this attempt at being a better housewife. We actually eat at home a lot. And although my couponing make easy fast meals cheap and they are very easy to make, I want to venture out and try new things.

So for my first rendition of on the menu (I'm going to make an assertive effort to make this a weekly list), I am will be focusing on the season. That's right these recipes are all about fall. I have only listed three because let's be realistic, my husband works some nights, I am not Betty Crocker, and I'm also a little lazy lady who likes to call take out.

Feel free below to add your recipes on pinterest that you would like me to attempt to try next week. Who knows, maybe yours will be featured!


  1. I LOVE using Pinterest for recipes. I almost always look at it for inspiration when making my weekly meal plans.

    1. I'm usually a Hamburger Helper, Stouffer's Lasagna kind of cook. But with trying to lose weight, I need to get better about actually making home cooked meals.

  2. Hazelnut soup sounds fabulous... and very exotic!
    Happy Birthday to Sweet Pea!
    Thanks for sharing your Hazelnut soup and your menu at ON THE MENU MONDAY!

    1. Thank you. I hop it tastes as boos as it sounds. :)

  3. What a fun link up!! How did the soup turn out? Pinterest is my favorite place to look for recipe ideas to help plan my menu! I was trying to think of an easy dish to link up for you but I don't think I have any that would work for fall! I can't wait to see what other recipes you try out!
