Menu Plan Monday ~ January 7, 2013

Did you have watch Downton Abbey, Season 3, Episode 1 on PBS last night?! My husband and I certainly did! And we weren't disappointed. I tried very hard to not read the many spoilers and recaps that are out there. (it's hard not to)

It's been a long time since we've had a TV program that we could enjoy watching together.

Now, onto this week's menu plan. A shout out to Organizing Junkie for hosting Menu Plan Mondays. If one of your goals to menu plan please join us!

Garden Tuna Melts, pickles, macaroni salad

Banana Bread pancakes, sausage

40 Cloves Chicken, collard greens, salad

turkey sandwiches, soup

Korean Beef with Brown Rice

You know-- I have been hearing so much about Downtown Abbey but I have yet to watch it. I am guessing it would be better to start at the beginning though than to try to work into it now!

Your menu sounds great though-- YUM!

I am staring a pinning group for pinterest and wondered if you might be interested. I looked for an email address to contact you at but wasn't able to find one on your blog. If you are interested- you can get ahold of me at kfountain5 at gmail dot com.

Hope you have a great week!

Korean Beef with Brown Rice

I first discovered the strawberry fridge cake on Pinterest, this summer. We love strawberries, cake and that's its kept in the fridge. I'll definitely be making it again! Source: via Rona on Pinterest strawberry fridge cake

Marcus and I first came across fry bread while living in Maine. There it's called fried dough. It's typically served at fairs.

Pancakes From Scratch - Betty Crocker Big Red Cookbook

I'm a huge fan of pancakes and love making them from scratch.  Here's the recipe that I've been using for years courtesy of Betty Crocker's Big Red Cookbook.

ps I don't add the sugar and ues 2% fat free milk.  I do let the recipe sit for few minutes to thicken.  And when including fruit I serve it at the table.  I don't like to mix it in. 

1 large egg
1 cup all purpose or whole wheat flour
3/4 cup milk

1 tablespoon granulated or packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

margarine, butter or shortening for the griddle or skillet.  I use margarine...we don't like the taste of shortening and butter can sometimes burn

Beat egg in medium bowl with hand beater or whisk until fluffy.  Beat in remaining ingredients except butter just until smooth.  For thinner pancakes, stir in additional 1 or 2 tablespoons of milk. 

Heat griddle or skillet over medium heat or to 375 degrees.  Grease griddle with butter/margarine …
