Menu Plan Monday Done in “Corny” Style

. at . 17 comments

Writing this week’s menu has been inspired by I’m an Organizing Junkie.

  1. Spaghetti and meatballs in the crockpot
    Can you cook the noodles in the pot with the rest of the ingredients? It sure would save time and make sure that I actually eat the sauce with pasta instead of as a soup.
  2. Corn pancakes with bacon strips
    Every once in a while I get into my head that I need a certain item and I buy it for many weeks in a row, even if it isn’t on the list. Like right now I have 6 cans of whole kernel corn and 8 cans of evaporated milk. NOTE: I do not buy in bulk! So the idea is to use up some of what’s overstocked in my pantry. This week it is corn and milk.
  3. BBQ chicken and rice: I really like brown rice but don’t always like to wait for it to cook the 45 minutes. I’ve found the instant brown rice to be inexpensive and ok tasting, especially when mixed with something else like, oh say, kernel corn.  🙂
  4. Sunday dinner (I’ll have it on Thursday though.)
    When the kiddos were growing up, we had this every Sunday.Throw the following in a crockpot before leaving for church and it’s already to eat when dinner rolls around. Some meat, veggies, can of creamed soup, 1/2 packet of Lipton’s onion soup mix and one can of some kind of liquid (bear, wine, apple juice). Cook until tender, about 6 hours.
  5. Crockpot chili over rice and cornbread
  6. Corn chowder with cornbread
  7. Leftovers

    I love corn pancakes. Make them every so often from my Farmers cookbook.

    Why didn’t the corn cross the road?

    I don’t add the noodles to my crockpot Spaghetti. I just make the sauce in there.
    Have a terrific week.

    Dying to know what kind of liquid you get from bears – milk, juice ?
    Just giving you a bad time but it was cute.
    Enjoy your pancakes – my Mom used to make them for us as they were my Dad’s favorite. Haven’t had them in many years.

    Annie – Thanks. I love how you have a photo of your food and link to the recipe. Your blog is gorgeous. You have some good information on your site. I will out Isabelle on my prayer list.

    Rona – thanks for responding, Rona. One of these days I will experiment, but with only a portion of the meal, just in case it gets ruined. Your menu sounds awesome. Your ecclectic site HAS lots of good reads.

    Terri – your toppings sound delish. So does your menu! I bought some asparagus yesterday – first time – and plan on baking it up tonight. Thanks for sharing about freezer meals and Dream Dinners. I’ve been tempted to go there myself.

    Catlady – I’m stumped or stupid. I wrote something cute about bear liquid? Are you messing with me, missy? 🙂

    Rachel – Thanks for visiting. I went had a little read at your site this am. I forgot how much I “enjoy” your company. Please let us know how the recipes you want to try come out. They DO sound delish. Your $20 challenge sounds awesome. I think that’s a great idea. I’ll be reading this with interest.

    Duker- I’m with you. I want to know those two things too! Hopefully they don’t tease us too long. Have a great day and thanks for leaving a comment. It is fun to have “visual” proff that you were here. 🙂

    Catlady-what do you think? Should we tell her the answer to the 2 questions she is stumped over or continue being little teazers?

    Susan-All ears-very good. But not the answer I had in mind…

    Keziah, You have been on my mind a lot this past fortnight. I have been reading two books about Scotland and I think about you every now and then.

    I will write a bit about the books. One of them was a book you suggested. 🙂

    And I’ve come to appreciate Earl Grey.

    I have unintentionally taken a blogging break. It was spring break and then a week off between quarters at seminary.

    I will be back this week.

    Have a great day and I feel loved that you wrote to check up on me. Thanks, my dear sister.
