Menu Plan Monday ~ February 11, 2013

While we were watching Downton Abbey last night my husband turned to me and said, "Oh, this is going to be so good"! when he noticed Bates taking notice to the disruption amongst the Thomas, James and Alfred. No further spoilers here!

Snow has hit the east coast big time! I hope that, today everyone is safe and warm.

Thank you to Organizing Junkie for hosting Menu Plan Monday.

I love french dip sandwiches! I need to try the crockpot version!

I love that your husband watches DA with you. No need for Valentine's surprises, sounds like he's giving you his love and devotion ALL the time.

We are having fish tacos this week (with leftover catfish we had for dinner yesterday). And CHICKEN vegetable soup sounds good. I just finished off my big pot of beef vegetable. But I've got some veggies I need to us, so I think I'll make a pot of that. AND, crock pot french dip sandwiches! Those are going on the menu soon! Yum!

And I can't believe Downton Abbey is over after next week. Already???? No!!!

Cheap Korean Beef With Brown Rice: My Short-On-Time Dinner Recipe

When I'm short on time and still need to make dinner this is my go-to recipe. What's your go-to recipe?

Korean Beef with Brown Rice

1 pound lean ground beef
1/4 - 1/2 cup brown sugar

Our family favorite desserts are cake and fry bread!

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 …
