What's for Dinner, Week who knows what...

Monday
Turkey and Rice Casserole in the Crock Pot
Green Salad and Cantaloupe


Tuesday
Taco Salad with corn tortillas
Tuesdays have been Taco Salad Tuesdays, but everyone (except for me!) is getting tired of it, so we'll have a tortilla option tonight.  We're also going meatless tonight, just beans, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, corn, and toppings.

Wednesday

Tortilla Chicken Chili in the Crock Pot
This will use up the partially eaten and now neglected tortilla chip bags in the cupboard. Plus, Bubs has a swim meet in the afternoon and Cub Scouts at night, so dinner will be done and waiting when we need it.


Thursday

Pasta
Just good old pasta and salad for dinner tonight.  Meetings and practices.

Friday

Russian Beans-one of my mom's recipes, passed down from her mom:
1/2 lb. hamburger
1 onion, diced
1 green pepper, diced 
1 large can diced tomatoes including juice(or whole and chopped up)
1/2 cup raw rice
1 can kidney beans, undrained
1 Tbls. chili powder
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper

Brown the hamburger, onion and green pepper and drain.  Add the tomatoes and juice, rice, beans and spices.  Heat and stir, then bake in a 325 oven for 1 1/2 hours.

I'm going to try this in the crock-pot and hope it works out.  I think it might need additional liquid.


Saturday
Homemade Pizza with a crust recipe here.
