This Week's Menu {Jan 24}

Last week's plan went better than most weeks do. We only skipped two days - one to eat leftovers instead (no harm there) and one to take my Grandpa out for birthday dinner (you can't deny a 93 year old man Bob Evans). Knowing that we tend to skip a meal for leftovers I'm going to try to work that into the plan. That way I'll be more likely to actually achieve my goals. You know, cause that feels good.

Anyway, here's what is in store for this week:

Monday - Grecian Spaghetti
Tuesday - Unstuffed Cabbage
Wednesday - Baked Potatoes & Salad
Thursday - Leftovers
Friday - Pancakes
Saturday - Brats & Tater Tots

My grandma (and also my sister) make stuffed cabbage that is pretty much awesome! I don't have the patience, nor the cooking prowess, to make my own. Luckily I found a recipe a while back for unstuffed cabbage that is super simple. Here's the how to:

1. Chop one small cabbage and layer in the bottom of a greased 9x13 pan.
2. Brown one pound ground meat and one chopped onion. Drain fat.
3. Stir 1.5 cups uncooked rice into meat and onion mixture. Layer over cabbage.
4. Cover with approximately 30 oz of tomato soup and/or water. (You could use two smaller cans of tomato soup and one can of water, or you can use a carton of Trader Joe's tomato soup).
5. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for one hour.

P.S. Did you notice that Droolworthy Decor and Potential Projects were recently updated? It's about time, I say.

Fantastic job sticking to your menu! I did notice Droolworthy Decor was updated. I love the kitchen pictures... and I think I have a new favorite color for our soon-to-be kitchen. I haven't checked out Potential Projects yet, but plan on doing that tonight.
