Monday:
Leftover Beef Stew over Rice

Tuesday:
Baked Ziti w/Eggplant Parmesan

I am using a frozen store bought entree to supplement the Eggplant Parmesan I made about a month ago. Unfortunately I do not have the recipe from then but my daughters ate it up as they just thought it was "spaghetti stuff". They didn't even know that there was no pasta but only veggies.

Wednesday:
Beef Stroganoff over Buttered Noodles

2 (8 ounce) cans cream of mushroom soup
1 (1 1/8 ounce) package onion soup mix
1 lb stew meat OR Beef Chuck Steak (cubed)
8-16 oz of sour cream (depends on how "sour" you want it)

Egg Noodles

Combine and cook in crock pot for 8 hours. Then just before serving add sour cream to crock pot and stir. Serve mixtrue over buttered egg noodles (flat wide noodles or Reams frozen egg noodles are even better).

Thursday:
Chicken & Rice Casserole w/veggies

Friday:
Spaghetti w/meat sauce

Saturday:
Hamburger Vegetable Soup

I cooked, we ate the Autumn/Winter Beef Stew over Rice. My family enjoyed it and will enjoy the leftovers in a few days. I plan to use the Stroganoff over buttered noodles recipe soon.

Beef stew is absolutely one of my all-time favorites, makes me miss my mom to read this. No,she's not dead, she's in Canada and I way down here in Texas.

How did I find your blog today? Funny you should ask.

I see you have "endometriosis" on your Blogger profile, as do I because I suffered with it and infertility for a long time.

I actually have a link in my blog post today where you can sign an endo petition my friend Jeanne is submitting to Oprah and The View. It will take 2 minutes or less to fill out and each and every signature will help the cause!!

Thanks. Jannie
