Menu Monday

Anne Taintor cooking

I almost missed posting our menu for this week.

  • Monday – Pancakes
  • Tuesday – Tacos
  • Thursday – Pizza
  • Friday – ???
  • Saturday – It’s Hammie’s birthday. It will be interesting to see what he picks
  • Sunday – Roast and Potatoes & Carrots

When I decided we were going to have pancakes tonight I realized we were out of syrup. What the what?!?

I found this quick recipe for syrup

  • 2 cups Sugar
  • 8oz Evaporated Milk
  • 1 TBsp Butter
  • Boil Sugar and mil, stirring constantly until all sugar is dissolved. Cook over high heat until the mixture starts to boil. Remove from heat and add butter. Let sit 5 minutes. Stir.

It was so yummy, but VERY sweet. I think it would be better as a sauce over a cake or cheesecake.


  1. We would boil 2 cups of sugar with a cup of water and a teaspoon or two of maple flavoring. My mom always kept that on hand for syrup.
    We're having tacos tonight.

  2. Mmm....that chicken noodle casserole sounds yummy.

    We like to make apple cinnamon syrup with apple juice. My favorite.

    Let's see...Monday we had Firehouse (duh), Tuesday was cheeseburgers and sweet potato fries, tonight I'm hoping it will be Cheesecake Factory (since it's our anniversary), Thursday - I have no idea yet....maybe quiche. Friday is dinner at Grammy's for the boys and bunko for me. That's as far as I've gotten. I think we'll be trying your casserole soon.
