Menu Plan Monday

I don’t always keep to my menu plan but I find it is so much easier in the afternoons when you have some idea of what to make for dinner. Looking at a defrosted piece of meat and trying to decide what to make in the next 30 minutes with two screaming kids is very stressful. I end up making something easy rather than something we would really like. Not to meantion grocery shopping is soooooooo much easier and cheaper with a plan! So thanks to I’m Organizing Junkie for hosting Menu Plan Monday.

Monday – Southwestern Salad

Tuesday – Stir fried Pork (leftovers) & vegetables w/rice

Wednesday – Chicken Quesdillas

Thursday – Taco Soup – see below
Friday – Turkey Cabbage Casserole

Saturday – Four bean Casserole – see below
Sunday – Lo Mein with ham
Taco Soup

2 pounds browned hamburger meat
2 cans ranch-style beans, or pinto beans
2 cans whole kernel corn
2 cans diced stewed tomatoes
1 can rotel (tomatoes with green chiles)
1 pkg. Ranch Style Dressing Mix
1 Pkg. Taco Seasoning


Combine all ingredients in the crockpot. Cover and cook on LOW for 6 to 8 hours.
Tenille’s Note: I cook mine in the crockpot for several hours. Great to put in in the morning before work. Will be ready and delicious when you get home.

Recipe from Keeping Afloat

Four Bean Casserole

This is always popular at potlucks and goes great with just about any barbecued meal.

1 15-oz can pork and beans (undrained)
1 15-oz can kidney beans, drained
1 15-oz can lima beans, drained
1 15-oz butter beans, drained
1/2 pound bacon (optional)
1 onion, chopped
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 Tbs. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup cheddar cheese, grated

Mix all the ingredients together. Bake covered at 350 for 2 1/2 hours or in a crockpot on low for 5 hours.

<>These are all new recipes to me so I am hoping that my family likes them……………..
