Meal Plan Monday!

Sharing is caring!

We will be traveling to a wedding the day after Thanksgiving and not returning until Sunday, so that means not al lot of cooking for this mama this week! How great is that? I do still have to worry about Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, but I see some casseroles in our future.
Monday: Chicken and rice casserole
Tuesday: Baked Ziti
Wednesday: Chopped beef and gravy served over egg noodles with carrots noodles mixed in
Thursday: Turkey Day! I’ll make a big breakfast early in the morning
Friday: Off to Boston! sandwiches for lunch in the car and yummy food at the rehearsal dinner
Saturday: Wedding day! More free food! Ha!
Sunday: Back on the road. We’re staying in a suite so i’ll make us a lunch for the ride back home
Dessert of the week: still eating hubby’s cake I made him AND my mom made him a cake. We’re drowning..
Bread of the week: none. we still have some left from last week

    I have a question for you. How do you store your homeade bread to make it last? Mine will always dry out or mold before my husband and I can eat it all. Thanks!

    Have a great time at the wedding.

    Your menu sounds delicious. Happy Thanksgiving!

    Have you ever heard of shelf milk? If so, can you use it in a baking recipe?

    Dhunny – what cut of beef will you use on the noodles? Happy to see you are using your gravy! DH & I are always “discussing” (arguing) about the various cuts and their tenderness, and how long to cook.

    Have a wonderful week!

    I had those bread bags that claim to keep the bread fresher longer. They don’t. Just regular gallon freezer bags work just fine. If you are having problems using up the bread before it molds, cut the loaf in half and place the second half in the freezer. Once Hubby is down to a slice or two, take out the frozen bread and it will defrost within hours. Homemade bread freezes very well.


    We have leftover beef from our roast that I made in the crockpot last week. I believe it was a boneless chuck roast. Chuck roasts are my favorite for the slow cooker.
