Menu Plan Monday

September 29, 2008 at 4:52 pm 2 comments

There were quite a few changes in our meal schedule last week, so some of my meals I had planned on making last week are now on this week’s meal plan.

Monday: speedy swedish meatballs (Sandra Lee Semi-Homemade Cooking, page 72) with egg noodles and a salad
(I will be making my own meatballs instead of buying prepared meatballs.)

Tuesday: dutch potato soup (The Basics and More Cookbook, page 95) and steamed vegetables or a salad. And if I have time/feel up to it, I will make bread or biscuits too.

Wednesday: speedy chicken stirfry (Food & Family Magazine, Fall 2007, page 21)

On Wednesday morning, I need to take a snack to the mother’s group I go to at my church. I will be making layered pumpkin loaf (Food & Family Magazine, Fall 2007, page 9)

Thursday: ham and green beans (see recipe below) and rolls or bread (probably left over from Tuesday’s meal)

Friday: slow cooker BBQ pork sandwiches ((Food & Family Magazine, Fall 2007, page 34) and a salad

Saturday: leftovers

Sunday: eggs

1 lb ground beef
1 lb ground turkey
1 chopped onion
rolled oats
2 eggs

Mix all ingredients together in large bowl, except meat and milk. Then add meat. If you have a hard time mixing, add milk to thin the mixture out. If you add too much milk, add oats to make it thicker.

Make into balls. Meatballs can be cooked in a frying pan on the stove or in the oven. Cook/bake until done.

This is the same recipe I use for meatloaf.

This recipe is from my mom.

Ham and Green Beans

ham (or turkey ham)
green beans

Cook ham in large pot with plenty of water for several hours, salt to taste. This makes the broth for the soup.

Remove ham from the pot and cut into bite size pieces. Return ham to pot.

Wash and peel potatoes; chop into bite size pieces. Add to pot; cook until soft.

Add green beans; cook until done, then serve.

This recipe is very easy to change. Sometimes I will add more potatoes and green beans if I am low on ham. Depending on your preferences, you can have equal amounts of each main ingredient or you can increase a certain ingredient if you would like to have lots of it in your dish.

    The pumpkin layered loaf sounds good.
