Okay, yesterday I shared the breakfast and lunch menu for September.  Today I actually have the Dinner menu for you.  LOL!  Keeping it easy the kiddos and DH will be in charge for the month.
Countdown 1 day until my knee reconstruction.
Then I wake up this AM to the sound of a dying fridge, UGH.
 Has to be a side by side I won't have anything else!
Place that on the top of the shopping list and 
snip out a few quick picks for DH just so he understands what I want;)

Here we go...

6 pork chops, browned in butter
Wash and cut up 10 new potatoes
1 med onion
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can milk
salt and pepper to taste
combine in this order into a greased baking dish...

cover with cream soup and milk
salt and pepper

With steak 

Brown Steak and Gravy
(My Mamma's recipe we had it on Christmas Eve)
3 good size round steaks cut in half
Brown in butter and cook in pressure cooker until falls apart with fork
Make gravy from the pan drippings and liquid in the pressure cooker
Corn starch mixed with COLD water so you don't get lumpy gravy
Salt and pepper to taste
serve with mashed potatoes.

Grilled Chicken Breasts

Many of these dishes lend well to leftovers.  Some nights we designate as leftover night to use up the leftovers.

Good luck on your surgery! And good luck to DH and the kids cooking for a month. You really like side-by-sides? I loathe mine. Can't WAIT till it dies, I'd like to burn it.

Chris, I wish we could get a garden to grow to do so we would have to say goodbye to some very old trees;( I do miss a good garden.

Amy, I love it so much more room and I can actually find what I am looking for in the freezer. I love mine. Thanks for the well wishes I am very nervous.
