Menu Plan Monday ~ December 2, 2013

My husband and I watched "Argo" over the weekend. We both felt it was good but not great. It also bothered us that the writers decided elaborate about the truth regarding New Zealand and Britain. Hopefully, people will do their research regarding the Canadian Caper, before or after the movie.

Are you a The Good Wife fan? If so, I won't be providing any spoilers. I just wanted to say that the writers are truly delivering an amazing season, so far!

Oh, all of your plans for this week look so yummy. But that grilled cheese has me swooning. Bacon, bread, cheese...mmmmmmm! Enjoy your week!
I've never watched The Good Wife, but I hear only good things about it. I'll have to check it out, maybe on Netflix.

That grilled cheese looks great. Can't beat a great, melty cheesy sandwich!

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

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 …
