So, it's dark outside but it's still Monday so it still counts.
Here is a list of the meals I am planning to serve in the coming days. This will get us further than just this week. So I am not assigning days-- just have the list on my write on/wipe off board on the side of the fridge, ready and waiting.
Tonight we had spaghetti with meat sauce (which I started this afternoon and let simmer for hours), steamed broccoli and my daughter made the box mix Ghirardelli brownies which we ate warm with vanilla ice cream on top. I am still a bit sick feeling as I write this from all the feasting we did round the Whalen dinner table tonight.
Tomorrow night we are having crock pot ribs, baked potatoes and green beans. I am making a chocolate cherry dessert for our small group. Wednesday night is leftovers. And that's as far as I've gotten with the scheduling of the meals.
The rest of the meals I have planned for are listed below:
scrambled eggs, caramel apple coffee cake, hashbrowns, sausage (is it me or does that meal just beg to be served on a crisp fall night?)
turkey in the crockpot, oven sweet potato wedges, corn
baked potato soup with cheese and bacon toppings
chipotle london broil, rice pilaf, salad
shredded french dip sandwiches, french fries, fruit
grilled chicken and penne pasta toss, garlic monkey bread (recipe below)
barbecue chicken, black-eyed peas, macaroni and cheese
Here's the recipe for Garlic Monkey Bread:
1/2 C. butter, melted
1/4 C. grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
2 cans of refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
Preheat oven to 375. Combine butter, cheese and garlic powder. Cut biscuits into quarters, dip in butter mixture and layer in 13x9” pan. Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
Desserts I plan to make this week:
Vanilla custard in the crockpot
Chocolate chip cake
that chocolate cherry dessert I already mentioned
