Okay, so it got warm again. Some good football weather though! I’ll hold off on my soup recipes for just a little longer. Beyond soup, here are my menu suggestions based upon what’s on sale this week.
- Pulled Pork – These sandwiches are regulars on my menu. It’s just so easy and it’s great for people to ‘customize’ their own sandwiches – some can use spicy BBQ sauce on top. Some can use sweet BBQ sauce. Some can use buffalo sauce. It’s even good plain!
- Crispy Onion Chicken – Got some fried onions? Got some chicken? You already have 2 out of the 3 ingredients needed for these chicken breasts.
- Sausage Lasagna Rolls – Another one of my favorites. It makes wonderful leftovers too.
- Beef Enchiladas – Tortillas and beans are on sale, this would be a good week to make these.
- Chicken Tetrazzini – I haven’t tried this one, but it has chicken. It has spaghetti. It has freezer instructions. Sounds like something that I could really get behind. Reminds me of this Chicken Spaghetti, but a little easier.This isn’t a main side, but most of the ingredients for Cheesy Hashbrowns are on sale – this is one of my favorites! I can eat this every single day!My husband does not like tuna. Just doesn’t care for it. I’m not a big tuna eater, but I have great memories from childhood of when my mom would make tuna noodle casserole. I really liked it – even as a kid! So, I made some last week, just for me and the kids. They loved it too – the little one (11 months old) made a mess when eating it, but he makes a mess all the time anyway!Here’s the version that I make. It’s different than most recipes I’ve found in that it doesn’t include cheese. If you’re a cheese person, add in a cup of cheese. I also don’t like an official “crust” on it made with breadcrumbs. Maybe that’s just because my mom never did it that way? Anyway…this makes a 9×9 pan, which was perfect for my needs, but if your family is larger than mine, it easily doubles for a 9×13 pan. I know that tuna noodle doesn’t make for a pretty picture, but it does make for a comfort meal!
