My menu plan is just a guide and sometimes things just don't go as planned. We will go over how things worked out for us this past week and how I changed things up.
Monday..we had so many left overs from the weekend that we had those instead of what was on the plan.
Tuesday..I made the Turkey Pot Pie that I had planned for Monday. I got the recipe from my friend Wendy and it was yummy. I have this in my recipe file now. So I will make it again. And it was easy. And now all the thanksgiving turkey is gone.
Wednesday..Richard wanted egg salad as he just wasn't feeling good and didn't want a big meal. So egg salad for all but Harley and she had a roast beef sandwich!
Thursday..I wanted to try a recipe that I found so that I could use up the remainder of Thanksgiving ham before it was no longer good. We we had Scalloped potatoes, ham and corn casserole. It was so good and cheesy. Definitely a comfort food. Richard really liked it.
Friday night I wasn't up to cooking so we had McDonald's. Yuck but easy!
Saturday we stuck to the menu with Shepard's Pie. One of Justin and Darian's favorite meals.
Sunday we check the beef stroganoff for spaghetti. Justin didn't want the heaviness of pasta so we made spaghetti sauce with spaghetti squash. If you have never eaten spaghetti squash you have to try it. Fabulous.
Now on to this coming week:
Monday: John Wayne Casserole (one way or another we will get this recipe tried out).
Tuesday: Baked Potato Soup
Wednesday: Biscuits and Gravy!
Thursday: Take out Thursday Both the kids have sporting events tonight.
Saturday:Kids have a progressive dinner for their church group...we will figure this out!
Sunday: Chicken and noodles, mashed potatoes and gravy, corn
This is going to be a busy week for the kids. Finals! Church and last minute shopping! So we are keeping the menu simple and quick.
