Thankful for Menu Plan Monday
I am also thankful for Menu Plan Monday!! I have to admit, although I don't always stick with my menu, I would be lost without it! Meals seem to be an after thought in our home, we get so busy and before I realize dinner time is upon us, and I have three hungry boys at my feet. Luckily at that point all I have to do is check my menu and start cooking, instead of digging through my pantry hoping something is there that might make a decent meal. It is a must for me to stay organized and Menu Planning is such a large part of that.
So here is my menu plan for this week. Many of the dishes will use MORE Thanksgiving leftovers!
Menu Plan Monday
Grandma's Spaghetti and Meat (recipe below), Cornbread, Salad
Turkey Pocket Pies (recipe tomorrow)
Wednesday: 1st Wed. at BAF
Black Bean Quessadillas strips, fruit salad
Friday: Family Movie Night
Pizza, popcorn, Peppermint Sundaes
Saturday: Christmas Shopping
Crock pot Turkey Soup, cheese, crackers
Hash brown Ham Bake, green beans, salad
Grandma's Spaghetti and Meat (exactly as she wrote it on a recipe card for me)
1 1/2 c. Small Elbow Macaroni
1/2 lb Hamburger meat
1/2 tsp. Salt
1 tsp Sugar
1 46oz can of tomato juice
Cook Macaroni in enough water to be loose. While it's cooking brown meat loose or in small balls. Drain off water on macaroni and add tomato juice, meat, salt & sugar. Heat to a boil. Very good with Cornbread or butter and crackers.
