Monday: Stuffed Lettuce Leaves, Salad & Scalloped Tomatoes
I was going to make these last week, but the schedule got goofed up. So on to today they go! I still have lettuce to use for salad as well, so a nice big garden salad (that will hopefully have leftovers for lunch) and then I’ll use canned tomatoes to make scalloped tomatoes.
Tuesday: Meatloaf, Mashed Potatoes & Roasted Beets
Last fall when we took the deer Yankee Bill shot to be processed, the gentleman accidentally made all of our ground meat into spicy sausage (we had ordered 1/2 and 1/2). The kids find the sausage too hot to eat plain so I have to buy regular ground beef and mix it. I remembered to pick some up last week at Aldi’s so I’ll be making a couple of meatloaves-one for us to eat, one to freeze, and one to send over to a friend who is having chemo. The taters will most likely come out of a box, and the beets are out of the garden.
Wednesday: Pasta ala Pompodoro, Steamed Chard
Another dish that didn’t happen last week! This light Italian bean & pasta dish will be my meatless meal for the week.
Thursday: Sausage Skillet & Rice with Marinated Cucumbers.
I have about 6 polish sausage left over from the cookout this weekend. I’ll saute them up with some peppers, onions and whatever else takes my fancy and serve over rice.
Homemade. Pizza Hut Clone Crust. Nach.
Saturday: Chez Frugal Buffet
Sunday: Corn & Fish Chowder, Biscuits & Steamed Carrots.
There is some slightly freezer burnt fish in my deep freeze. I figure the perfedct way to disguise the not so fabulous textue is to pop it in some soup! Homemade biscuits always finish off a soup meal, and they are just soooo good. Carrots will be out of the garden.
