Last week was the first time I joined Menu Plan Monday. I always plan my menu, but don’t always stick to it. This past week I really did well and even blogged about the recipes that I shared last week. A note about this week’s menu. You’ll probably notice there’s an awful lot of red meat on the menu. That’s because I am trying to finish up the last of the side of beef in our freezer so we can order some more. So here’s this week’s menu, I hope it encourages you to plan yours as well!
Monday – Sloppy Joes - I don’t have a homemade recipe for this. I may try this one I found at About.com, but this week I’m actually going to try a can of Red Gold’s sloppy joe. I don’t usually use the can but rather the spice mix envelope from McCormick’s. If I had the green pepper flakes I’d try the homemade mix this week. Next time!
Tuesday – Crockpot Beef Stew - Haven’t decided which one I’m going to make yet, but I am partial to the one linked at left. I have several beef stew recipes, but I may look up a new one all together. Will most likely make these easy homemade dinner rolls to go with it.
Wednesday – Sirloin Tip Roast – I found a yummy looking recipe at All Recipes I want to try.
Saturday – Chicken Quesadillas – The recipe at the link says to use a fajita mix, but I have a little bit of my homemade taco seasoning mix leftover from a half batch of taco meat I made from Nachos last week, so I am using that instead.
If you need a fun dessert this week, try these Frosted Sugar Cookie Bars!
