Something New: Menu Plan Monday!

For quite a while, I've been planning our meals two weeks at a time. Since we are working hard to be wise with our money, I'm going to change our strategy and start planning one week at a time, using the grocery deals as a guide. However, this week I didn't do that. Since I use Organizing Junkie all the time for menu ideas, I figured it was time to participate. Here goes!

Monday: Leftover Mexican Stack Up (Great recipe for large groups; I'm going to try to get permission to post the recipe from its owner)

Tuesday: Chick-fil-A (Our local CFA offers church bulletin night. If you bring in your bulletin, you get a free chicken sandwich or chicken nuggets as long as you purchase a side and medium drink. You can hardly beat a meal out for 3 for about $6!)

Wednesday: Breakfast for dinner/Bacon, egg, and cheese sandwiches and grapes (This meal has to be fast; we have to get to church by 6!)

Thursday: Barbecue chicken in the crockpot, corn, baked beans, and salad

Friday: Hot ham and cheese sandwiches (See recipe below), chips

Saturday: Leftover sandwiches!

Hot Ham and Cheese Sandwiches
1 pkg of small dinner rolls OR Hawaiian bread dinner rolls
Thinly sliced ham ( I usually use one package)
Thinly sliced swiss cheese
Slice the rolls in half using a bread knife.
Place the ham on the rolls evenly and cover with sliced cheese. Place other half of rolls on top.

Mix together:
1/2 stick (or little less) of softened butter
1/2 tsp. poppy seeds
1/2 tsp. of onion flakes
1/8 tsp. of ground mustard

Spread evenly on top of rolls. Cover with foil. Place in the oven at 350, covered in foil, for about 15-20 minutes, until cheese and butter has melted. You may want to remove the foil halfway through cooking time.

Please visit Organizing Junkie for many more great ideas!

Try putting most of the butter/poopyseed mixture on the inside of the sandwich & just a bit on the outside. Delicious & a bit less messy to eat. Have been making these for about 25 yrs. Great for brunches, showers & other times when finger foods are on the menu. Hubby likes them when we have tomato soup.
