Menu Plan Monday has arrived for Christmas week. I hope you all are enjoying the season — and even if you’re not, it’s coming to an end soon 🙂
The first photo is a holiday favorite we make every year, Chocolate Mint Brownies (this is pretty similar to my recipe). I first ate these when I was teaching and one of my students’ parents brought me some for Christmas. I loved them, asked for the recipe, and have made them ever since. This year oldest daughter (home from college, yay!) made them, which was even better 🙂
We’ll be on the road much of the week, but here is the brief menu plan:
Monday: Spicy Potato Casserole — – from an Amish Cook column in our newspaper, and daughter #1’s favorite.
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 hash browns)
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.
Tuesday: Chicken Noodle Soup — no real recipe, just chicken, carrots, broth, peas, noodles, seasoning — delicious 🙂
Merry Christmas! What are you doing that’s fun this week? Does your family have a special Christmas recipe?
