XV? Can’t believe I have shared this many menus. I wish I had planned something special for this week!
Happy Monday! I am going to make this one super short because the kids are about to come home from school but I want to share this week’s menu since it’s been a while.
So this week I am basing my menu off of my sunday sauce, which I made on Saturday, so that I could use it for a few other meals.
What’s on the Menu Monday XV?
Sunday – Pasta & Peas – You know that sauce you made yesterday? Open a can of peas and mix it up. Serve over pasta and dinner is served.
Monday – Lasagna – Never made lasagna? No problem. I have the recipe for you here… https://talesofatiredmom.com/2020/01/10/the-best-homemade-lasagna/
Tuesday – Pork & Beans – I coated a big piece of pork with some brown sugar, salt, pepper, and cinnamon. I wrapped it in foil and let it bake on a low temperature for a few hours. Serve with beans.
Wednesday – Bacon & Spinach Quesadillas – Cook bacon as usual and then chop. Saute spinach. Combine bacon, spinach and mozzarella cheese. Put a little butter in the pan, put down a tortilla, add mixture, cover with another tortilla and let brown. Flip. Serve with toppings and with corn and rice.
Thursday – Pancakes – I love making breakfast for dinner when I can’t think of anything to make. Pancakes, some apple slices and I will even make some eggs if anyone is still hungry.
Friday – Pizza Fritta – So surprise! This is actually a dessert for dinner. Because well sometimes it’s fun. I often make my own bread for my son…so when I made some dough, I saved some of it. Roll out the dough as if making a pizza. Take a frying pan and melt some crisco. Throw the dough onto the hot pan and wait until it bubbles and then flip. It cooks very quickly. Then top with sugar and serve. If you want to feel a little healthier, you can add some berries on top.
Saturday – Sauce – I start my sauce by sauteing pork neck bones in red onion, garlic, salt, pepper and olive oil. Then I add a can of tomato puree and a can of tomato sauce. Depends if I am making a chunky or smooth sauce. (Sometimes I do the whole peeled plum tomatoes and shred them by hand.) Let that simmer as long as I can. Adding spices as I go.
