Well it is that time again, time to plan the menu and last week I picked up some TVP! What is TVP? Well we use it as a meat extender in this house but it is a soybean product that can boost protein eating in many dishes. So how will I use it, you will have to see my menu over the next couple of months to see( yes I have that much).
Monday- Tacos( we love Tacos and by using a mix of TVP and hamburger we can really stretch this).
Tuesday-Veggie Spaghetti (slow cooker recipe) and Salad
Wednesday-Breakfast for Dinner-Cheese Omelet and Tomato Slices
Thursday-Hotdogs and French-fries and corn
Friday-we have been invited out
Saturday-cheese pizza(bought on sale for $3.99) and salad
Sunday-Roast Chicken, potatoes, carrots, corn( whole chickens are 2 for $10 at Food Basics).One of the ways I make this really flavorful is to add some sweet onion dressing to the chicken. Makes for a very yummy bird.
Christmas Tip–Have you started your Christmas baking yet? If not this is the week to get it out of the way..This week Roo and I will make sugar cookies for her classes. The recipe we use is on the Kraft Website and we love it…
