Menu Plan Monday 2012 ~ Week of June 9th

Just like last month, we are cooking from a monthly menu plan.  And again, like last month, I allowed for some last minute additions to the plan!

Last week, we attended my niece's graduation party and my sister-in-law sent us home with a quart of baked beans that were left at the end of the party.  Since I had some leftover ham steak in the fridge, I decided to make the most out of those leftovers and threw together a quick Corn Dog Casserole, replacing the sliced hot dogs with the diced ham.  Mmmm!  I made some corn on the cob to serve on the side.

Pork loins were on sale last week.  I'm picky pork and only eat it when it's prepared a few different ways.  Since Grace's Aunt Barb is recovering from surgery, I decided to make a crock pot full of Heinz 57 Pulled Pork to take over for dinner.  Two small pork loins made enough for 5 of us to eat generous portions and also provided leftovers for both here and at Barb's house.  Potato wedges and some store bought coleslaw and cucumber salad were served on the side.

We also enjoyed some Pesto Orzo.  Another dish that was leftover from the graduation party.  I'm really glad I made too much for the party since the heat was so bad this week, I was happy to not have to cook a few nights this week!

I think the weather is supposed to be a little cooler this week.  So hopefully I will be motivated to prepare a few new recipes.  Here's what I had in mind for this week:
