Menu Plan Monday - December 13, 2010

Whoo Hoo! The Internet is back up! It cost way too much money to fix our radio antenna (during which the service guys explained about the optional insurance we could have purchased). I'm a little too verbose to blog with the 121 character limit on my phone!

We've had an exciting couple of weeks that I can't wait to share, but for tonight, we'll keep it to the food. Below is an easy crock-pot dish that Emelie put together for dinner. We actually used deer roast in place of beef. A hunting friend encouraged us to try one of his prizes. Never thought I'd eat deer, but it's very tasty and lean! 

Roast Beef and Gravy
1 boneless beef chuck roast (3 pounds)

2 cans (10-3/4 ounces each) condensed cream of chicken or mushroom soup, undiluted
1/3 cup sherry or Beef Broth
1 envelope onion soup mix

Cut roast in half; place in a 3-qt. slow cooker. In a large bowl, combine the remaining ingredients; pour over roast.

Cover and cook on low for 8-9 hours or until meat is tender. Yield: 8-10 servings.

We've got a crazy week ahead of us. It will make us enjoy the holiday next week even more, right? We're relying on some family family favorites to make dinner easier. This week we'll be enjoying:

Monday (Bryan Night Meeting) - Roast Beef & Gravy, Mashed Potatoes

Tuesday (Bryan Night Meeting, Horse Judging) - Baked French Toast

Wednesday (Homestudy #2, AWANA) - Cold Cuts, Popcorn

Thursday (Bryan Night Meeting, Karate Tournament) - Franks n' Beans

Friday (Ice Skating, Bible Study Christmas Party) - Pizza Hut!

Saturday Cheese Enchiladas
