A Call For Menus

One of these weeks you will stop by my blog and my menu for the week will look something like this:

Monday - peanut butter & jelly sandwiches
Tuesday - peanut butter & jelly sandwiches
Wednesday - peanut butter & jelly sandwiches
Thursday - peanut butter & jelly sandwiches
Friday - peanut butter & jelly sandwiches
Saturday - peanut butter & jelly sandwiches
Sunday - toasted peanut butter & jelly sandwiches

I'm doing good so far though. This week there are two crockpot recipes from the "101" cookbook: Orange Chicken & Simple Beef Stroganoff. The Upside Down Spaghetti recipe is one I learned from my sister Mindy years ago. If you would like a similar recipe with a bit more substance to it (substance = meat) then check this one out from www.allrecipes.com:

Spaghetti Pie III

Now I'd like to hear what you guys are all eating this week. All you need to do is click on the little words below this post that say "# comments." Then add your menu there. Don't worry about posting recipes yet - we'll let you know if there's one that we want to try out too. Mostly, I would just like to make sure my family and friends aren't just chowing down on corn dogs every night (everything in moderation, people!)

Have a great week everyone!

**note added: In the recipes this week, I also added a pasta salad recipe that my mom emailed to me a few days ago.

I think I might try your Orange Chicken. I made a recipe last night that was really good - but it's going to last us all week. For some reason I just can't cook for "2" people. I bought this turkey roast which was so yummy but decided I better use it in a casserole before it goes bad. It was a "Turkey and Hash Brown Casserole" - pretty good. Made it in a 9" pie dish and we just made a little dent in it. So when this is gone I will try the Orange Chicken and let you know how it is.
I sure like your website Andy. It's fun to see the recipes and what you have to say about each one.

Robyn--

they are so easy, all I do is take out a bunch of rhodes dough rolls and let them rise all day. Then I just have all the pizza stuff out like pizza sauce of course, and pepperoni, ham, pineapple, mushrooms, olives, cheese, whatever you like. Then everyone can make their own calzone. (your kids would love this). Take one rolls and smush it out flat on a cookie sheet then top with whatever toppings you like then cover the whole thing with another smushed out roll and pinch all the seams together. Bake them for just about 20 or so minutes, or until the crust starts looks crusty and their done. It's so easy!
