Mon – Grandma's Goulash with Bisquick Baking Powder Biscuits
1lb browned ground beef with 1 onion cooked in, 28oz can of whole toms chopped, 1/2 bag of egg noodles boiled and partially drained, salt and optional paprika to taste. 20-25 min, serves at least 6.
Tues – Chicken Enchiladas (Better Homes)
Weds – Rigatoni Isabella
Boil 3/4 box farfalla pasta. In butter or oil cook 6 green onions, 28oz can whole toms drained & chopped (or 3-4 fresh), small amount of jalapeño pepper as desired (1T for our family). Add mix of 3oz swiss and 3oz mozzarella cheeses, grated, to the cooked pasta. Mix all together, season with salt to taste. 30-40 min, serves 5-6. Good with any kind of greens.
Thurs – Grill Steaks (Von Hansons seasoned - mmm), Asparagus
Fri – Dirty Rice (box mix) with Spinach Salad and Cottage Cheese
I've had some luck getting my non-salad eating kids to enjoy dipping baby spinach leaves in small dishes of ranch or oil/vinegar. My youngest will probably only eat the cottage cheese and some bread from this meal.
Alts – Falafels; Picnic w/Subway sandwiches
