Menu Plan Monday


Who else is ready for spring? Here in the midwest, we at least are getting weather that’s a bit closer to spring-like: 40s this week! Here’s my Menu Plan Monday:

Monday: Spinach Cheese Twist — this is good, although I haven’t made it in quite a while.

Tuesday: Spicy Potato Casserole — – from an Amish Cook column in our newspaper; my daughter loves it.

1.5 lb browned ground beef

1 pkg taco seasoning

1 small onion, diced

8 medium potatoes, boiled and shredded (or use a bag of hashbrowns)

4 T butter, melted

2 cups shredded cheese

1 t. salt

1 pint sour cream

1 can cream of mushroom soup

1 soup can milk

2.5 cups crushed corn chips

Combine ground beef, taco seasoning and onion.  Put mixture in bottom of 9 x 13 dish.  Mix potatoes with butter, cheese, salt, sour cream and soup.  Mix with milk.  Spoon over hamburger mixture.  Top with remaining chips.  Bake 45 minutes at 350.

Wednesday: Fish – I bake tilapia filets — I just sprinkle spices on them. Served with rice and a veggie.

Thursday: Tacos – last time I made these, I made the chicken the way Carrie does, in the crockpot with rice. It was yummy!

Friday: I applied for a mystery shop at a local Italian restaurant. Keep your fingers crossed for me that I’ll get it! If not, I’ll pull a poppyseed chicken out of the freezer.

I noticed that strawberries on on sale for $1/lb. at Meijer this week. I’ll be buying a bunch to make homemade strawberry jam. If you’ve never made this, you must! It’s easy, and so much more delicious than store-bought. We go through tons and tons of it.

  1. I may ask Wal Mart to match Meijer’s price on the strawberries.

  2. That Spinach Cheese Twist sounds good… I may have to put that on my menu in the near future! Thanks for sharing 🙂
