It's menu time again!

I should take photos of the dishes I make often so I can add them to menu posts. That takes thinking ahead... something I don't do a lot.  ( I am linking to the recipe site and using their photos though.)

Friday we had Zippy Chicken Stirfry. We found a good deal on family size bags of frozen stirfry veggies at Sav-Mor, and Dollar General Market has big bags of frozen chicken breasts for $6 that other stores have for like $12.

Saturday was Sloppy Joes, mashed potatoes and creamed corn

Sunday was Spaghetti and carrots

Tonight (Monday) we had Unstuffed Peppers which I posted the recipe for on my last menu post. and green beans. (I used regular non-minute rice tonight and it came out great following the recipe as written. Had 3 cups of V8 and 1 cup of uncooked rice, was perfect. )


Now the rest of the menu looks like this:

Tues Aug 16th: Cold tuna noodle salad  (Chorus meeting for Christopher and Rhiannon)

Wed Aug 17 Taco Salad (hoping the tomatoes are ripe by then!) (Christopher's birthday)

Thur Aug 18 Goulash casserole I also posted about on my last menu post. (Christopher and Zoe to school meeting)

Fri Aug 19 Sloppy Joes with Hotdog buns, mashed potatoes, corn (I am working overtime)

Sat  Aug 20 Chili, crinkle cut fries, corn

Sun Aug 21 Zippy Chicken Stirfry (also had recipe on my last menu post.)

Mon Aug 22 Shepherd's Pie

Tue Aug 23 Spaghetti, green beans

Wed Aug 24 Cheeseburger Pasta (like a home made hamburger helper)

Thur Aug 25 Chicken and Bean Burritos (this is from the Campbells emails I get. I'll list recipe below.)

Fri Aug 26 Broccoli Fish Bake (I usually hate cooking fish and never eat it out, but I know we need more fish in our diet and Christopher requested a fish dish.  This is from the Campbells emails. I'll list the recipe.)

Campbells soups has nothing to do with my blog, and we're not related to those Campbells (that I know of hehe).  I just really like their recipes and love getting the emails with new ideas.
