This week, we are enjoying some recipes I haven't made in a while including chicken stroganoff, tuna patties & stuffed peppers. I've included recipes as well. We are also having a traditional BBQ for the Labor Day holiday with a non-traditional pumpkin cheesecake!
Please share your meal plan for the week or even just what you are having tonight!
Monday – Labor Day cookout with relatives
Hebrew National hot dogs ($3.50 per package at Food Lion through 9/4)
Hot dog buns (.88 at HT through 9/4)
Pasta salad with tri-colored pasta, tomatoes, green and red peppers, black olives, canned mushrooms
Tomato and cucumber salad
Pumpkin cheesecake (recipe from allyou.com HERE ) - I amended the recipe by using chocolate chip cookies instead of Oreos for the crust. I am also not making ghosts out of the whipped topping, of course. I also used 1/3 less fat cream cheese instead of full fat cream cheese.
Stuffed green peppers with rice, tofu, cheese, canned tomatoes, mushrooms (green peppers are .50 each at Food Lion through 9/4) - for the Stuffed Peppers with Tofu recipe, click on the Search WRAL Recipes link in the box above. Then search for Stuffed Peppers with Tofu.
Garlic bread (from meal deal at Lowes Foods last week)
Tuna patties (see recipe at MarthaStewart.com HERE . I’ll be amending the recipe slightly by using tuna in water, not oil as her recipe calls for.)
Here’s another tuna patty recipe using stuffing, if you like making tuna burgers with boxed stuffing, HERE
Chopped salad (just chop up the veggies into smaller pieces, add dressing and enjoy)
Chicken stroganoff on egg noodles using recipe HERE . My daughter was looking over my shoulder at the recipe and said, “That looks yummy!”
