Menu Plan Monday: Week of November 29th, 2010
Well the holidays are in full swing here. I managed to accomplish most of my Christmas Shopping this weekend. The decorations are pulled out and all over. I seriously need to get my act together and put them all up. I keep making demands on myself to finish but I don't listen! LOL.
I also have an announcement to make. The first official holiday cookie has been made and eaten at our house. I won't be posting THIS recipe, its the one on the back of Pamela's Bread mix. I do have a wonderful cookie recipe I made last year, but it was 5 pm when my son declared he wanted gingerbread man cookies. Pamela's is my go to blend for quick batches. It was our first time trying out this recipe and I must admit, we were very satisfied. I was super impressed with how it kept its shape. I added an extra egg and it enabled the cookie to be slightly more like cake and less crunchy! A rework of this recipe is going to have to happen for some of my other needs.
And while I am on the subject of cookies I have been working hard trying to master Gluten Free cookies for the holidays. I will be sharing them over the month. I also happen to notice that I am not the only blogger working on cookies. There are several cookie exchanged going on round the blog-sphere.
So onto the menu, shall we?
Its another busy night with Karate and Cub Scouts. Taco's are our favorite Monday meal because its quick and the kids will eat it without a fight!
Kielbasa. This is not a recipe or a meal ~ LOL. I have it but have no idea what to make with it!!! Any ideas?
Lean Cuisine Santa Fe Style Rice and Beans. It is also a church night. But I'm not sure we will be attending.
Pork Chops and Mashed Potatoes. Never did get to those Pork Chops. I guess I should be account for a leftover night in my plan but then I am afraid I will need an idea and not have an assignment for that day. LOL!
Turkey Rice Casserole
Turkey Dinner (yes, again!) :-D
Spaghetti and Meatballs
