Menu Plan Monday - March 1, 2009

Well, it looks like things are getting back to a Stumpf-kind-of-normal. My ear's still ringing like a handbell choir, and I can't hear very well. But the show must go on! A huge part of this house's show is food. Therefore, this week the Stumpfs will be enjoying:

Monday (Bryan home late) - Slow-simmered kidney beans (CROCKPOT), corn casserole

Tuesday (Emelie Horse Judging) - Texas Black Bean Soup (CROCKPOT), homemade tortillas

Wednesday (AWANA/4-H Small Engine) - Chicken Patty Sandwiches, popcorn

Thursday (Bryan night meeting) - Spaghetti & Meatballs (CROCKPOT), Salad, artisan bread

Friday (Roller Skating, Lainie Scrapbook Crop) - Smoked Sausage Sandwiches, baked potato platter

Saturday (Emelie Horse Judging Tournament) - Egg Drop Soup, Fried Rice


  1. Sounds like a fantastic menu for the week. I LOVE my crockpot too!
    I have my menu listed here:

    ps Nice to meet you! I am a mom of nine :)

  2. Do your kids like Kidney beans? Is it just Kidney beans? How does that work? Just curious. I think of kidney beans in chili and Shannon doesn't want to even eat those! :)

  3. Lisa,
    The dish is like a BBQ beans with kidney beans, smoked sausage, and bacon. Kidney beans, black beans, and pintos are generally accepted around here. This dish got pretty good reviews from everyone and a couple loved it. Let me know if you'd like the recipe!
