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.
