Menu Plans for Sept. 21 - 27, 2008

Most everything we eat is family favorites because I don't consider it a savings if it's not eaten!

Monday: Soup Beans with Homemade Bread and/or GF Biscuits, lunchmeat and/or grilled cheese sandwiches, salad, and finger veggies (broccoli, baby carrots, pickles etc), bananas

(This is a very easy favorite. Just soak navy beans in water overnight. Dump off the water in the morning, add new water and just a little baking soda (to prevent the farts). Add salt, pepper and a little Mrs. Dash. Turn crockpot on high and enjoy the aroma all day!)

Tuesday: Ground Turkey Burgers, Potato Wedges, frozen mixed veggies, salad, apple slices

(This is a new recipe. Make "hamburger patties" from ground turkey. Coat with rice flour and fry. Potato Wedges are a favorite. I peel and cube potatoes and put in a large baggie. Add 2 TBS olive oil and 1 tsp salt. You can also use seasoned salt, if not allergic. Bake on cookie sheet for about 45 minutes.)

Wednesday: Spaghetti & Meatballs, GF Biscuits/Homemade Breadsticks, salad, applesauce

(Make meatballs and sauce in crockpot 1. Start beef roast in crockpot 2. Use broth for rice dishes.)

Thursday: Roast, Bread/Biscuits, beef rice, salad, leftover veggies.

Friday: Chicken nuggets,(or fish nuggets) french fries, frozen mixed veggies, salad, pineapple
(This is a Friday tradition at our house. I wash boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into nuggets, then coat with 1/2 c. rice flour and 1 tsp salt. I cook homemade french fries and nuggets in olive oil.)

Saturday: Tacos, refried beans, frozen mixed veggies, salad, pineapple
