    Sounds good, Always! Anything that has noodles and cheese -- I'm all in! :)

    Amish casserole is basically ground meat ( I use turkey) mixed with cream of chicken soup, tomato soup, brown sugar, salt and pepper and egg noodles with cheese.

    Alwaysab, you know you have to tell us what Amish casserole is, right? :)

    Tonight is leftover baked ziti with Italian sausage and a salad. Tomorrow will be a salad with some grilled veg, rice, and cold leftover London broil from last night. The dressing will probably be an Asian soy and sesame vinagrette concoction.

    Amish casserole and green beans with fruit.

    Simmer covered 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally. If too "wet" or "loose", continue to simmer uncovered until you like consistincy (sp?),

    juanitasmith, as promised: 1 lb ground beef, 2-3 stalks celery chopped (I use green pepper instead, even though I love celery I can't imagine it in sloppy joes!), 1 small onion chopped, 8 oz can tomatoe sauce, 1/4 c ketchup, 1/4 c bbq sauce (your fav), 1 tablespoon each brown sugar, vinegar, and worchestishire sauce, 1 teaspoon dry mustard, salt and pepper to taste. In large skillet, brown meat with celery & onions, drain & rinse well with hot water to get rid of as much grease as possible, put back in skillet & add all other ingredients (I mix them up first).

    We are having Johnsville chicken sausages sliced with sauteed red peppers, mushrooms and onions served on rice with rolls and fruit salad. It's totally different than the pizza I had on the meal plan but we had that last night and I really want to use up the veggies in the fridge.

    Gator Grill - we are having shredded BBQ chicken sandwiches tomorrow night! Enjoy the game!

    We are having something simple so we can watch the baseball game tonight (we had pizza and salad last night for the same reason). We are having shredded BBQ chicken sandwiches, Alexan onion rings, broccoli slaw, and carrot sticks.
