Menu Plan Monday
We were asked last week to join Mama for dinner out today.
With Chance back at work tomorrow, it would seem wise to clear the refrigerator of leftovers. We've Poultry stew and I've promised to make more dumplings. I think with a salad and fruit we'll have a substantial and filling meal.
Wednesday: Southwestern Salad, Corn Muffins
I found this recipe earlier this week in a newsletter...I can't remember for the life of me what the name of the thing is...Black beans, corn, lettuce, tomatoes, shredded cheese, avocado. I like the idea of starting the work week (mine and Chance's both) with a tasty salad. With the beans and corn, it should be hearty, as well.
Thursday: Stuffed Cabbage Rolls, Mashed Potatoes, Lima Beans
I've been craving these all this past week so I think it's time to indulge myself! I like to use a tomato soup as the sauce on mine...No recipe, just ground beef and whatever I have on hand that looks good, perhaps a porcupine meatball type mixture.
Friday: Baked Beans, Coleslaw, Pickles, Corn bread
A second meatless meal for the week. It's all part of the Pantry/Freezer challenge true, but it's also a great meal for a cold January evening.
Saturday: Kielbasa, Pierogi, Applesauce
I've got apples in the fridge that will make a terrific applesauce...And I do love a nice warm applesauce alongside a meal such as kielbasa and pierogi. If I have leftover coleslaw Friday evening I'll add that to the meal as well.
Sunday: Baked Chicken Breasts, Creole Style Green Beans, Pan Roasted Potatoes
I don't want to make a plain baked chicken...Perhaps a light lemon sauce will suit me. We'll see come Sunday. Perhaps I'll have taken time to look for a new to me recipe, or an old favorite I'd forgotten.
