A new year beacons — how was your Christmas? Mine was nice; I enjoyed a few days off from cooking. This is a pretty quiet week here since the girls have 2 full weeks off from school. Here’s what I’m planning for the week’s Menu Plan Monday:
Monday: Cheeseburger Pie — the girls have loved this for years.
Tuesday: Turkey breast — recently my dad gave me a coupon for a free turkey breast. I plan to make it in the crockpot — hints welcome. Here are online directions I found on how to cook a turkey breast in a crockpot. It’s been thawing in the fridge for nearly a week, yet still feels a bit frozen. Why does the label always say to thaw in the fridge 48 hours? That would never work! I’ll also make a box of scalloped potatoes I got free online a while back, and probably peas too.
Wednesday: Ortega Taco Casserole – this has been a favorite for years. Like tacos, but less work.
Thursday: Zesty Chicken Tortilla Bake – leftovers.
Friday: make your own pizza — I make the crusts; everyone creates their own personal pizzas with toppings of choice.
What will you be cooking and eating this week?
