Menu Monday 11/10

Heather says:
Another Monday, another menu, last week was so hectic that I dove into my freezer stash and the drive through. I try to keep a few meals on hand for weeks like this. It prevents the children from turning into McNuggets. Do you have any special tactics to avoid the drive through when life takes a hectic turn? 

I did not get to the cabbage skillet that intrigued several readers. It should be making its grand appearance tonight. It’s a fairly simple and humble dish, but sometimes that’s exactly what we need. 

If you are a menu planning blogger, feel free to share your link. I love to check out Organizing Junkie’s fabulous links for future ideas or just plain curiosity. 

So tell me, Home Eccers, what’s on the menu this week?

    Very cute website! Your menu looks yummy!

    Speaking of home economics, I just posted a break down of what my homemade bread costs. Figuring out costs definitely is far down the economic road…lol

    I love menu swaps. I find myself serving the same food OVER and OVER.

    Once again, your menu sounds delicious this week. My family loves chimichangas, but I always buy them premade, so this recipe sounds really easy for me to make. Thank you for posting the link to it.

    Eggplant parm is my family’s favorite. But I didn’t include it on our Thursday two week shopping trip. And now I’m craving it! gee thanks! 😉

    I could sure use some tips on avoiding the drive through on hectic weeks. We’re prepping our house to sell and I’m the one who gets to try and strip wallpaper while watching a 5-year-old and taking breaks to feed people. And of course, the wallpaper is in the kitchen! I’ve got plenty of protein frozen but finding the time to implement a meal is getting tough. And since I’m emptying out the pantry, there’s not much to fall back on.

    I was also intrigued by the cabbage skillet and actually had cabbage, apples and kielbasa on hand. I just sauteed them all together with a bacon fat and a splash of cider. It was great! You can find several recipes through google.

    Good Morning!

    Your oven baked chimi’s sound and look delicious. I’ll have to give them a try.

    I am a big fan of tex-mex type food; so is my husband. We used to have 2 Chi Chi’s resturants that served an awesome grilled bbq burrito. (It was a very sad day when they closed). This burrito had a crispy looking crust like your chimichangas. I’m dying for one of those and think your recipe might work if I somehow managed to baste a little mexican bbq sauce over them before baking.

    Take Care,
