The kids helped to decide alot of the menu this week. They are off from school Monday, Thursday and Friday (Johnston Co. Schools) and like to help in the kitchen so they got to choose some of the recipes they enjoy (based on what we have here and what's on sale, of course). I have also included the Egg and Spinach Casserole recipe and the Beef Stew Recipe from last weeks meal plan at the bottom of this post. Enjoy!
Apple Slices (using apples from Food Lion deal good through 1/19 for 3 lb bag for $2.99)
Egg Rolls (.50 for box of Kahiki egg rolls from HT Super Doubles last week)
Depends on what’s on sale starting 1/19….we’ll see.
Here is the crockpot beef stew recipe from last week’s meal plan. It’s a cross between beef stew and beef stroganoff with a creamy gravy that is fabulous over noodles.
Crockpot Beef Stew and Noodles
12 – 16 oz egg noodles, cooked (I usually use No Yolks noodles)
Place stew meat in crockpot. Add carrots, onion, mushrooms, spices and both bay leaves. Pour broth over meat and vegetables. Cook on low for 7 hours. Take out bay leaves. In a separate bowl mix sour cream, flour and ½ cup water together. Then pour approx. 1 cup of broth from crockpot into sour cream mixture. Mix well. Pour sour cream mixture into crockpot and mix well. Turn crockpot to high and cook for 20-30 minutes to thicken gravy. Serve over cooked noodles with a roll and a side salad or green vegetable and enjoy!
Last Saturday we had an Egg and Spinach Casserole for dinner. It was delicious!
Here is the recipe:
Egg and Spinach Casserole
Garlic, pepper and Italian spices to taste
Place croutons on bottom of 9 x 13 inch pan. Put veggies over croutons. Spread sausage over veggies. Sprinkle cheese evenly over pan. In a large bowl, mix eggs, milk and spices together well. Pour into pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-55 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes.
