Menu Plan Monday
Last week's menu plan was mostly a bust due to me being sick most of the week - from Tuesday through Friday I cooked nothing. Saturday L & I managed to make chili mac, but just that simple meal wore me out. Sunday (yesterday) I made swiss steak in the slowcooker. This week I'm planning on easy stuff because I don't know how much energy I'll have.
Monday - leftovers. My weekend cooking pays off tonight!
Tuesday - minestrone soup. One of these weeks I will make this.
Wednesday - cream of mushroom casserole. Last week when I was so sick I spent a LOT of time on the couch, watching TV. Especially Food Network. I saw RR make this casserole and I cannot tell you how much I wanted it RIGHT THEN. I couldn't convince L to get off the couch, go to the store & buy mushrooms, and make it for me (perhaps because he was even sicker than I was) so it had to wait.
Thursday - sandwiches. See above, "easy stuff" for this week.
Friday - cheesy vegetable soup. No recipe for this because I make it up. Saute veggies in a combo of olive oil & butter. Add flour & cook for a minute or two. Add chicken broth & milk/half & half/whatever you have. Add cheese & stir until melted. Yummm! (Rice is good in this too and if I remember I like to add some.)
