On the Table

On the Table, thanks to Veazer, AKA as Karen, this is the name I will always call it when posting dinner menus.

I must say that I am very happy about the way my grocery shopping has been going. Going to 3 different stores is kind of a pain, but I like the end result of saving money and therefore will keep doing it as long as I am able.

So for this weeks menu we have some of the same ole same old, and some old tried and trues that I haven't made in a while. Plus a newbie.

Let us commence:

Ritz Cracker Chicken & Rice. Green Beans
4 chicken breast
1 can cream of mushroom
1 cup sour cream
1 sleeve Ritz Crackers
1 stick butter
2 cups cooked rice

Cook rice. Put into the bottom of 9x13 dish.
Salt and Pepper chicken and place on rice.
Combine cream of mushroom and sour cream and pour over chicken.
Crush crackers and sprinkle on top, and top with melted butter.
Bake @350 for 30-45 minutes.

Taco Tuesday - Unless something crazy happens, I foresee Tuesday being taco night for a long time. Its cheap, my family loves it, and its easy. The end.

Sloppy Joe Bake & Brocolli

1 c. bisquick
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar
1/2 c. water
1 lb. ground beef
1/2 c. ketchup
1/2 tsp salt
1 can tomato sauce ( 8 oz)

Stir together bisquick, 1 cup of cheeze, water, & egg. Set aside.
Cook beef and drain. Stir in ketchup, tomato sauce, and salt.
Heat until Hot.
Pour into dish & top with bisquick mixture.
Bake @400 for 25 minutes.
Sprinkle with remaining cheese and cook 5 more minutes or until cheese melts.

Again, until the end of the world presumably, we will be having breakfast for dinner (brinner) on Thursday nights. My mantra...its cheap, they like it, its easy. The end.
This Thursday will probablly be Bacon, Eggs, and Blueberry Muffins.

Leftovers. Friday night is fun night at my friend Crissy's house, so the kids and I go there and Stacy gets a free night all to himself.

MMMM, Taco Filled Pasta Shells. This makes 2 pans, so I will make 1 to freeze for probablly next Saturday night. I need easy Saturday night/post football game meals for Saturday.
You can click back on THIS link to an older blog post for the recipe.

I don't usually cook on Sunday. That is so not the southern woman thing to do, but its the fact around here.

Italian Pineapple Chicken, homemade mac'n cheese, and green beans.
Go to THIS LINK for the pineapple chicken ( I dont add the cheese btw).
And I posted my mac n cheese recipe, HERE.

See previous Tuesday. And the Tuesday before that. And the Tuesday 2 months ago. And 5 Tuesdays into the future.

My new (new to me) recipe for the week!
Bowtie Lasagna. The Pioneer Woman likes it, and if she likes it...well, that is good enough for me.
You can find the recipe, HERE.

*I'm going to go ahead and predict that at least one member of my family does not like this recipe. (insert me licking my lips because I will certainly like it and they will certainly go hungry)

Breakfast. For Dinner. Remember, cheap, they like it, easy. The end.
Brinner this week will be dependent upon, a. what I have left in the house. b. how nice my family is to me. c. what I feel like making.
Don't you wish you lived in my house?

Start all over again.

Thats whats on the table at the Lowery house. Now go get to cookin!

Awww, thanks for the props! I love your Taco Tuesdays and Brinner. I love Brinner because I usually have everything already! Thank you for not cooking on Sundays. I don't either and Xavier gives me a hard time.

I need to post some more recipes. You gotta try that flank steak, it was so easy and tasted so good.

Don't you just love Ritz Crackers. They have a million and one uses in recipes. I will be stealing the Manuich Bake. I love me some casseroles.
