Menu Plan Monday- Jan 18

HOORAY!!!  It's

I actually have meals planned for the next few weeks.  All centered around stuff we already have here.  This way we will only have to replenish supplies.

Monday- Breakfast for supper

Tuesday- Tuna Pea Wiggle  (recipe below)

Wednesday- Kielbasa, pierogies, and green beans

Thursday- Veggie nuggets and Sweet potato fries

Friday- Amanda's "Famous" Meatloaf (recipe below), mashed potatoes and corn

Saturday- Chop Suey (recipe below)

Sunday- Pizza (most likely homemade- if so I'll post the recipe)

Tuna Pea Wiggle

1 can tuna (drained)
1 can peas (drained)
2T butter
1T (heaping) flour
½C milk (more if needed)
salt & pepper

Melt butter in skillet.  Add flour.  Mix til smooth and simmer 1 min.  Add milk, salt & pepper.  Stir.
Mix and add more milk til it reaches the consistency of gravy.  Stir in tuna and peas.  Cook til tuna is flaked well and topping is warm.
Serve over mashed potatoes, noodles, rice, or whatever you choose.

Amanda's "Famous" Meatloaf

I came up with this recipe accidentally.  I had run out of crackers and needed to find a replacement.  I have had people all over the area ask for this recipe.  Hope you like it!

1 lb ground meat
1C dry stuffing mix
1 egg
1 can tomato soup

Mix together meat, stuffing, egg and half a can of soup.  (put the other half on the fridge)
Plop mixture into loaf pan and cook at 350° for 1 hour.  My dad likes to mix the drippings with the leftover soup and pour that over his meatloaf. 

Chop Suey (Dads recipe he got from my aunt)

1 lb hamburg
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can tomato soup
black pepper
1 box casserole elbows

Cook elbows as directed.  Drain.  Brown hamburg in same pot you used for elbows.  Do not drain. Add soup, tomatoes and pepper.  Simmer and stir until hot.  Mix in elbows.  Serve.

Apparently I use this recipe A LOT.  The poor index card it's written on is full of grease stains and is severely warped.  But as long as I can read it- I'm calling it good.  Someday soon I'll have to write it on a new card. *sniff*  This recipe has gotten me through many a teary night.  I don't eat ice cream when I'm upset.  I make chop suey.

I like to use dry stuffing mix in my meatloaf, too! It's a great way to add flavor. Don't you just love when a favorite recipe comes about from something unplanned? :)
