Last week, I had planned to try three new meals- I got two done. We put off Sandi's Stromboli because we ended up going to babysit for Gavin on Thursday. So, I will continue to put it on the menu until I get it done. However, I must say, the Country Potato Chowder and the Polynesian Pot Roast were absolutely amazing! I would highly recommend both of them. Go here for last weeks menu to find the recipes.
With the Polynesian Pot Roast, I also tried another new potato recipe: Creamy Potato Sticks. It was really good as well. It puts a new twist on "cheesy potatoes." Here is the recipe:
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 c. milk
1 can (10 3/4 oz) condensed cream of celery soup, undiluted
1/2 lb. process American cheese, cubed (I used Velveeta)
5-6 large baking potatoes, peeled
1 c. chopped onion
Cut potatoes into 4 in. by 1/2 in. by 1/2 in. sticks; place in a greased 13 X 9 X 2 baking dish. Sprinkle with onion. Top with cheese sauce.
Bake, uncovered, at 350 for 55-60 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Sprinkle with paprika.
Yield: 6 Servings (I actually fed 5 people with this and had 1/2 to 3/4 of that again left over.)
On to this week's menu:
Monday: Chili and To-Die-For Mexican Cornbread I found this on last week's WFMW post. We are going to Mom's for dinner
Tuesday: We are caroling with people at church and are meeting at 5:30, so we will probably either grab something on the run or eat leftovers at home afterward.
Wednesday: Shakespeare's Pizza- a local legend. With my brother in town, we thought he should try it. Plus...I have a great coupon that expires at the end of the year.
Friday: Sandi's Stromboli- we will try again! :)
Weekend: This is kinda up in the air because we don't know what family is coming in to town when. We will probably be out at Don and Nancy's some this week.
