Menu Plan Monday: Anything goes!

So...now that the secret is out on why my tummy has been so upset these days, this menu plan will come as no surprise to you! Its all about comfort food!!!! Anything that does not make me want to hug the toilet is good for me. What you see this week is your traditional comfort food. Happy eating y'all!!


Monday: Sloppy Joes (recipe below), Tater Tots, salad

Tuesday: Chicken noodle soup, fresh baked bread

Wednesday: Leftover night...mama is not cookin!!

Thursday: Beef roast, mashed potatoes, green beans

Friday: Pizza Night!!

Saturday: Baked ziti, spinach salad, garlic bread

Sunday: Chicken and dumplings (recipe tomorrow), mixed veggies

Sloppy Joes
2 pounds lean ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped celery
1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed tomato soup
1/4 cup ketchup
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
8 hamburger buns

Place ground beef in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook until evenly browned, stirring to crumble. I like to use a potato masher to even out the lumps. Add onion and celery, cover the pan, and cook until tender and transparent, about 5 minutes. Drain off any grease.

Stir the tomato soup (undiluted), ketchup, vinegar, brown sugar and Worcestershire sauce into the beef mixture. Season with salt and garlic powder. Heat to a simmer over low heat, and cook until thoroughly heated, stirring frequently to prevent it from burning on the bottom.

Spoon the hot beef mixture onto buns, which may be toasted first, and serve.
