    Default WEEKLY MENU, Nov. 22

    This week will be a tight one if I am to stay within my budget. I may end up going over just so I am not compelled to eat out! Lesser of two evils.

    SUNDAY: Potato soup

    MONDAY: Ham and potato casserole

    TUESDAY: Beef stew

    WEDNESDAY: Leftovers

    THURSDAY: Spaghetti

    FRIDAY: Crockpot chicken, green beans, rice

    SATURDAY: Leftover buffet

    I need fruit and veggies - trying to eat better this week, something for sandwiches, bread, milk, and powdered juice mix. I also need some chicken of some description for Friday (whatever is the best deal) and some ground beef - I am completely depleted. Luckily GB is on sale this week so a minor stock up.

    Next Sunday we will have our US Thanksgiving turkey. THis will take us over our hoped for budget but we will have spectacular leftovers.

    I am bummed to be going over budget. :-(
    It looks like I am going to be over by about $30-40 this month.

    Well lets see here on the ol' list...

    Sunday- leftover enchiladas (since we still havent gotten around to eating these)

    Monday/Tuesday- brown rice casserole/red pesto ravioli on spinach bed (I dont feel so hot when I eat ravioli so the boy will have that dish)

    Wednesday- leftovers or maybe some soup/chili in the freezer or salad

    Thursday/Friday- Thanksgiving- its only the two of us so we are having a turkey breast, garlic mashed potatoes, sizzled green beans with prosciutto, cornbread dressing (my first!), and some form of pumpkin pie (will probably make the crust myself)

    Monday-grilled ham and pepper jack cheese sammies with oven fries, pasta salad

    Tuesday-meaty rigatoni bake with homemade garlic bread

    Wednesday-Pork and noodles

    Thanksgiving is a multi-part feast:

    Appetizers: meat/cheese tray (using up leftover cheese/meat in fridge, just had to get crackers) and little smokies (had in freezer already)

    Main Course: ham, green bean casserole, pasta salad (already diced up veggies for this), sweet potatoes, fresh fruit (Wesley's request), rolls (already in freezer)

    Dessert: Snickers Cheesecake (will make ahead)

    Friday- scalloped ham and potatoes (made with Thanksgiving dinner leftovers!)

    Saturday-Potato Topped Beef Bowl (this is a new recipe)

    Sunday--leftovers


    All of this is depending on Maggie and her arrival.

    What's in your brown rice casserole?

    Op- just saw this....

    I got the recipe from here:

    http://kalynskitchen.blogspot.com/20...-leftover.html

    Its not THAT Greek, nor is it THAT complicated but it was super easy to put together and paired with a salad it made for a nice dinner that stuck with me through my very physical second shift seasonal job! I would make it again if I had leftover rice (or made a double batch as part of another recipe) but probably not on its own.

    We have chili and broccoli cheese soup I made to use up.
    I have 1/2 mincemeat pie and most of an apple. I bought another turkey (Honey sickle at .79#) and a buch of small steaks that will become stir fry and maybe beef tips and noodles. If i feel up to it rice crispy treats will appear.
    When I do what TBD.
