Menu Plan Monday #35

Today was food gathering day for me. In otherwords, I had to go to the grocery store to re-stock. I was prepared with my list and menu in hand but I still felt like I spent a bunch. I'd hate to think what my bill would be if I wasn't prepared.

It's a busy week for us with 2 volleyball games, I have to work a fundraising function at our office one evening and Lawman is working 2 extra shifts. Given our full schedule, I'm trying to keep it relatively simple this week.

Here's what is planned.

Sunday - Parmesan Chicken, Creamy Spinach Bake, Seasoned Potatoes

Monday - Stir-fry veggies, rice, egg rolls

Tuesday - Fast food or concession stand fare at volleyball game

Wednesday - Mexetti (recipe follows), Salad

Thursday - Beef Stew (crock pot), Biscuits

Friday - Grilled hot dogs, french fries, milk shakes

Saturday - to be determined

Mexetti - my sister-in-law made this a lot when her kids were little.
  • 2 lbs. hamburger
  • 1 T chili powder
  • Onions, chopped - as much or as little as you want
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 can tomato soup
  • 1 soup can water
  • 1/2 pkg spaghetti noodles, broken in half
  • shredded cheddar

Brown the hamburger with onions and chili powder. Drain and return to skillet. Add soups, water and noodles to hamburger. Cook until tender. Put shredded cheddar cheese on top before serving. I'm going to try this with half the ground beef, twice the noodles and increase the liquids by using 2 soup cans water.

I was just on Country Doctor's Wife's site and saw that you are from Cottonwood. One of my good friends grew up there and her parents still are ranching there too. Her maiden name is Starkey. Her parents are Vern and Hattie Rose. Small world, huh?
