Menu Plan Monday: November 16-22, 2009November 16, 2009
Comments on last week’s menu: Last week I switched things around a little bit, but stuck to the menu plan. Yay!
The Ooey Gooey Caramel Cake was delish (how could something made with dulce de leche not be?) but I found one part of the recipe to be a bit impractical — spreading the thick dulce de leche on top of the cake when it had only been out of the oven for five minutes. Needless to say, the top of the cake tore and became messy. If I make this again, I will probably warm up the dulce de leche first and/or wait longer than five minutes.
The Monte Cristo sandwiches were fabulous! I almost didn’t serve the strawberry jam with them because I thought, “Eeeewwww!” But since Paula has so rarely steered me wrong, I put it on the table. It was fabulous. Just the right combination of savory and sweet. Even the kids loved it.
On to this week — trying three new recipes!:
Monday — we are going out tonight with my in-laws.
Tuesday — Tuscan Pasta with Tomato-Basil Cream. Served with Caesar salad.
Wednesday — We will have Tater Taco Casserole served with green beans.
Thursday — I’m going to try a new crock pot recipe for today, since we have a late afternoon appointment. The Crockpot Cheeseburgers sound too weird not to try. I’ll serve it with oven fries and baked beans.
Friday — Family movie night! We will eat light fare and watch “Miracle of the White Stallions.”
Saturday — Famous Butter Chicken, served with rice & broccoli.
Sunday — leftovers or snacking.
