Menu Plan Monday ~ November 24, 2013

Happy Thanksgiving and Thanksgivukkah everyone! While our menu plan is short and sweet, it's long on taste. I'm just hoping that I don't breakdown and order a pizza on Thanksgiving. (we did that last year)

Are you planning on going to the movies this week? If so, what will you be seeing?

This gal will be catching up on some Hulu Plus favorites, like Coronation Street and @HuffPostLive segments this week. Hubby and son have to work even on Thanksgiving.

Hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving! We're leaving for Disney World on Black Friday so we're going out to eat for Thanksgiving. I've never done that before. And we're going to see the Disney movie Frozen before we leave, as well. Should be a fun day!
Wow! Marsha, Have a terrific time at Disney World. And enjoy the movie.

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

Kelly's Korner Show Us Your Life: Desserts

Kelly's Korner Show Us Your Life topic for this week is desserts! Just in time for the holiday season!

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 …
