Menu Plan Monday 2013 ~ Week of September 30th

Lately, I've been really slacking in the kitchen.  I've been cooking....I mean, we DO have to eat, right?  And since we aren't wealthy, we don't have a personal chef.  We also can't go out to eat every night.  So, that means I cook.  But I haven't been enjoying my time in the kitchen...probably because I haven't been trying anything new.  I'm hoping that my mood about cooking will change now that the weather is getting cooler.  

To help get me into the mood for cooking, I decided to start menu planning again.  While this week doesn't include anything new, it does include a few of our favorite fall meals...


Hamburger Macaroni


BLT Wraps 


Spicy Chipotle Pot Roast in the Crock Pot  
Baked Potatoes 

I follow this recipe for the beef.  In Katie's recipe, the beef shreds.
Each and every time I have made it, it hasn't shred.
I'm not sure why, but for us, it works.
We like the thin slices of roast beef with roasted veggies
or mashed potatoes.
The thin slices also work nicely as a sandwich on a crusty roll.


Corn Dog Casserole
Mrs. T's Pierogies

Normally, I serve Sliced Potatoes with this casserole.
But this week, I'm really in the mood for pierogies.
If I didn't come up with a meal to serve them with,
I would probably devour the entire box
for lunch one day....by myself!


Leftover Night 


Chicken  Corn Chowder 

Chicken Corn Chowder is my absolute favorite soup.
In all of the times I prepared it, I've never gotten a decent
photo...probably because I am too eager to eat it!
I'll try to get a picture this time around!  


Beef Pot Pie 
What a perfect way to use the leftover Spicy Chipotle Pot Roast!
