Menu Plan Monday

Last week I ended up making this Hash brown casserole. I didn't have the energy to try a new recipe when it was time to make dinner and I had seen this video using ham. Pretty good.

I think I am going to commit to four meals made by me not including what I will be making Sunday. I am starting to think four is a good amount for any given week. We do eat leftovers multiple times in a week. Maybe more than Keith would like.

  • Teriyaki Beef and Broccoli Bowls - new recipe from my pressure cooker cookbook
  • Chicken Enchiladas- I doubled this recipe a couple weeks ago and put this half in the freezer. Time saver!
  • Meatloaf and Mashed Potatoes (made with my pressure cooker)
  • Leftovers
  • Ribs - Yes, I still have some in the freezer. After this I believe I still have one more package.
  • Sunday we are celebrating Christmas with my side of the family. I am bring some buffalo chicken dip that Jasmine is in love with right now. And, my favorite.... Cheese Fondue! Can't wait!

This week

The only thing I didn't make this past week was the Scalloped Potatoes and Ham. I think I may attempt it again this week. This is a hard time of the year to commit to trying new recipes. My mind is busy with my Christmas cookie list.

Oh! The french dip was so yummy! I will be making that again. My sister came over the next day at lunch time so I asked if she wanted some and she LOVED it. She even asked for the recipe. This recipe is for the pressure cooker but I she is going to adapt if for the crock pot. I can't wait to hear if it was successful for her.

  • White Chicken Chili - I think I will post this recipe soon. It's good.
  • Leftovers
  • Scalloped Potatoes and Ham (hopefully)
  • Creamy Italian Sausage in Pasta - Creamy meaning: I made Sausage gravy and biscuits Sunday morning and I plan to add that gravy to spaghetti sauce in addition to the Italian sausage I have.
  • My birthday dinner out... I'm thinking steak! Of course that's what I want every year
Sunday I will start making cookies for Christmas. I'm so excited!
