Menu for October 12-17

There were some changes in last weeks meal plan -- some things didn't get made so they will make an appearance this week again. Look in last week's menu for the recipes as most of them are there.

Spaghetti and Meatballs
Spinach Salad

Fried Catfish (my version of an emmeril recipe) *was yummy
Roasted Asparagus
Rice Pilaf

No Cook Day -- everyone was sick so we stayed home and GMA brought us a tasty homemade soup

Leftover Homemade Clam Chowder from last week
Leftover Sunday Soup
Rosemary Potato Bread
Garlicky Roasted Butternut Squash (put too much salt in for the amount of squash so it was kind of ruined :( Had I used less I think it would have been a good recipe. )

Tuesday -
Salmon Asparagus Quiche (recipe below)
Garlic Roasted Green Beans (these were so good that they are being repeated again-- recipe is in last week's menu)

Wednesday -
Turkey Mushroom Stew (Slow Cooker Cookbook--recipe in last weeks menu)
over bisquits (LLL cookbook)
Spaghetti Squash and Home canned fruit

Grandma Jean's Olive Oven Baked Sandwiches (kind of like a sloppy joe with chopped olives added and then baked in hot dog rolls with cheese on top-- check back later for the recipe I'll try and post it as my week allows me the time) This one can be prepped ahead of time and put in the fridge- then heated in time for dinner.
We Had:
Cooked Carrots
Eggplant Pie
Cantalope (3 for $1 at Sunflower this week)
and Italian Beef Sandwiches -- recipe below

Homemade Baked French Fries
Leftover Salads

Sesame Chicken
Homemade Shrimp Potstickers (will post the link as the week progresses)
Crockpot Brown Rice (recipe below)

Italian Beef Sandwiches (Grandma Jean's Olive Oven Baked Sandwiches)

1 onion chopped
1 # hamburger
1 8 oz. can of tomato sauce
1/2 tsp oregano
salt and pepper to taste
1 sm can of black olives chopped
original recipe also calls for 2 tomatoes which I never add
1 pkg of hot dog buns - or whatever buns you have on hand or want to make
Mozzarella cheese for the tops of the buns- shredded

Cook the hamburger and onion in a skillet. Add olives, spices, tomato sauce, and tomatoes (opt). Spoon the mix into the buns and put in a greased 10x13 pan. Sprinkle cheese over the tops and cover the pan with foil. Bake at 325 for 30-35 min.

My family is living on a very tight budget so I'm always interested in economical, healthy recipes and grocery shopping tips. I just love MPM!
Looks like your family is going to have some delicious meals.

Thanks Rona--
Check out some my archived posts for ways to use up things like carrots, celery, garlic, potatoes, etc... I think the best way to make your money stretch is to make sure nothing goes to waste.
