Menu Plan Monday ~ September 8, 2014

Hubby and I spent this weekend, at home, relaxing and watching some of our favorite Netflix programs. I also caught up on my Coronation Street and The Only Way Is Essex episodes, on Hulu. We made some time to shampoo the carpets. Well, he did the hard work, while did the housework.

Sunday meant it was time for some football. My husband's beloved Dallas Cowboys lost...terribly. Even I feel they need to consider a new head coach and I'm not a football fan. (I just married one)

We've got Sloppy Joes on our menu this week too. :)

I have learned over the years to enjoy the sports that Hubby loves, but it is too hard to sit still and watch a football game like he does. I can talk with him about it, and come in and out to check the score, but I just can't sit there!! LOL!

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

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 …
