Menu Plan Monday

It's Monday yet again... and a short, holiday week is ahead of us! More than ever before, NOW IS THE TIME TO PLAN! Make a plan for what you will be eating this week and I guarantee that the week will go smoother for you. Not only will a plan save some mental energy later on, but if you have a plan you are less likely to eat junk food or order take-out when 5:00 rolls around. JUST DO IT! :-)


This week, we'll be eating:


  • meatball stroganoff (new to us)

  • homemade chicken noodle soup with carrots, celery

  • ham and noodle bake

  • Thanksgiving Dinner with the extended family (I'm only responsible for making homemade dinner rolls)

  • wet burrito casserole

  • tuna and cheese pie (new to us)

  • breakfast for supper (waffles, scrambled eggs)

And here's the holiday recipe that I'll be tackling this week:


SCOTCHEROOS

Heat 1 cup sugar and 1 cup light corn syrup in a saucepan until mixture boils. Remove from heat. Stir in 1 cup peanut butter.Mix well. Then stir in 6 cups Rice Krispies (about 1/2 box). Press into 13x9 greased pan. Melt 1 cup chocolate chips and 1 cup butterscotch chips in saucepan. Stir to blend and then spread over cereal mixture. Chill until top is firm. Then cut into about 36-48 bars.

Scotcheroos are a favorite for our goodie trays. I have all the ingredients to make 6 batches of them this year. I'll be busy! But thankfully they don't require an oven to make since I'm currently oven-less :-)



By the way, last week's COCONUT JOYS RECIPE here turned out wonderfully! Here's a picture of one tray of delicious-ness, minus 2 that snuck away :-)

Do you do any Christmas baking? I'd love to hear what some of your favorite goodies are!

The cookies look delicious.

Your menu sounds delicious. Happy Thanksgiving!

Have you ever heard of shelf milk? If so, can you use it in a baking recipe?
