Menu Plan Monday - October 9

I am having a bit of fun with NaNoWriMo. I really didn't think that I would. After all, 50,000 words in 30 days is a bit much. Amazingly I am at 12,335 words as I type this blog post. I have about 1,000 more to keep on my schedule of 1,667 words a day (or night, in my case). Because of this crazy time stealer, I have little time to prepare big meals - and I have little money too! So, here is my simple plan for the week. Some of the recipes are included below the menu. I hope your week is going well and if you need more ideas for menues, visit Organizing Junkie for a huge list!


Mixed Vegetables
Garden Salads
Homemade Yellow Cake sprinkled with confectioner's sugar


Turkey Sausage & Cabbage (just fried together)
Pasta Salad


Scrambled Eggs
Toast & Jam


Pizza & Pop (with a movie)


Garden Salads
Canned Apricots


Creamed Red Potatoes & Peas
Cheesy Sloppy Rice Joes
Pies (if I have time)


On Your Own

Cheesy Sloppy Rice Joes

1 1/2 lbs lean ground beef
2 cups cooked white rice
1 cup chopped onion
1 pound cubed process cheese
3/4 cup ketchup
Hamburger or hot dog buns

In a 12" skillet, brown meat and onion until meat is cooked through and onion is tender. Drain fat. Place meat in a large slow cooker with rice, ketchup and cheese. Mix well. Cover and cook on low heat setting for 2 to 2 1/2 hours. Serve meat and rice mixture in toasted buns.
