Meal Time Mondays

It's that time again....hopefully the following will turn your frown upside down.

What's for dinner this week?

Memorial Day BBQ
Burgers and hot dogs on the grill
Grilled corn (soak the corn in the husk w/o the silk, for 30 minutes. Flavor as usual and grill in husk for 20 min.)
Baked Beans (Bush's are awesome if you don't want to make from scratch)

Strawberry Shortcake for dessert


Shepherd's Pie
1 lb. hamburger seasoned with onion flake, cooked and drained
1 c. frozen veggies
1 1/2 c. mashed potatoes (instant work fine)
1/2 c. shredded cheese
1 c. brown or turkey gravy

Layer meat, veggies, gravy, potatoes and cheese in that order. Bake in a 9 x 9 dish at 350 deg. for 30 min.
This is so good even my picky eaters eat it. To make this stretch further, use 2 c. veggies, 2 c. potatoes and 1 1/2 c. gravy and bake in a 9 X 13 pan.

Chick Pea Pasta
1 15 oz. can chick peas
1 loop sausage, cut into slices
1 pkg. favorite pasta, cooked
1 bottle of Alfredo sauce
parmesean and pepper to taste.
Cook the pasta according to directions. In a separate pan put 1 Tbsp. olive oil and the sliced sausage. Sear the sausage until browned. Heat the Alfredo sauce and chick peas in a pot until heated through. After draining pasta return it to pot you cooked it in, add sauce with chick peas and meat. Heat thoroughly if needed.

French toast
Scrambled eggs
Yogurt and fruit parfait

Happy Eating
