Last week I forgot to do the menu plan. Here's what we ate.
SUNDAY: Red Lobster for my father-in-law's birthday
MONDAY: Pork paprikas.
TUESDAY: Taco mac & cheese. The mac part was great & everyone wants it as a standalone dish. I will post that recipe later.
WEDNESDAY: Chicken and dumplings.
THURSDAY: Hawaiian Chicken with pineapple.
FRIDAY: Cheese ravioli with marinara.
SATURDAY: Turkey dinner, stuffing, mashed potatoes, green beans, Granma's rolls.
What's coming up!
SUNDAY it will just be the kids as we are going to a church dinner for the parish volunteers.
I have a good amount of leftover turkey including the carcass, so there will be turkey soup happening sometime this week--or at least turkey stock.
I need to make a big batch of spaghetti sauce this week. We are completely OUT of spaghetti sauce. (The horror!)
I had an unfortunate, inadvertent freezing-of-the-red-bell-peppers that should have been on the vegetable platter for today's dinner. They're sliced but no good for eating raw or stir-frying. They'll be fine for chili or something else like that. So I need to either figure out a way to cook them in something this week, or just freeze them until I think of what to make with them. Maybe they'll be good in the Crockpot Jambalaya recipe I found on Family Corner.
Unfortunately, cucumbers that have been inadvertently frozen are not good for anything, as far as I can tell. Ick. Ever try to peel a partially-frozen cuke? I don't recommend it.
