January Menu

Here is my menu for January! I like to find recipes to create a menu for the whole month. When I get the menu together, I then can get my grocery list together. Once I get my list, I go to http://www.southernsavers.com/ and see where I can get my best deals! I then print out both the menu and list and put them on the side of the fridge. Putting the recipes on the actual menu, really helps too! When I go to store, I also buy easy things like the Voila Meals, chicken strips, or pizza because sometimes a girl does not want to cook! Enjoy! Feel free to use and call me a nerd!

January Menu:
· Chicken Rotel
· Chicken Crescents
· Farmhouse Barbecue Muffins
· Chicken and Dumplings
· Breakfast for Supper (Quiche)
· Taco Salad
· Pizza
· Chicken, mash potatoes, and vegetables
· Fajitas

Chicken Rotel:
· Chicken
· Pasta
· Velveeta
· Rotel
· Cream of mushroom soup
· Peas
o Boil pasta and chicken
o Mix together Velveeta, rotel, cream of mushroom soup, peas, pasta, and chicken. Put in a 9x13 greased pan and bake for about 20-30 minutes. Ken's favorite!

* I like to put this in two smaller pans to cook one and freeze the other!

Chicken Crescents (From Lea Ann):
· Chicken
· Sour Cream
· Bacon Bits
· Cheese
· Crescent Rolls

o Boil chicken
o Mix together chicken, sour cream, bacon bits, and cheese
o Stuff mixture in crescent rolls (take two triangle and press them together. Add mixture in the middle of the crescent roll and fold it similar to a square burrito)
o Bake until golden brown (20 minutes)

Farmhouse Barbecue Muffins (www.allrecipes.com):
1 (10 ounce) can refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
1 pound ground beef
1/2 cup ketchup
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

1. Separate dough into 10 biscuits; flatten into 5-in. circles. Press each into the bottom and up the sides of a greased muffin cup; set aside. In a skillet, brown ground beef; drain. In a small bowl, mix ketchup, brown sugar, vinegar and chili powder; stir until smooth. Add to meat and mix well. Divide the meat mixture among biscuit-lined muffins cups, using about 1/4 cup for each. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake at 375 degrees F for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from tin and serving.

Chicken and Dumplings:
· 2 cream of chicken
· Onion
· Chicken Broth
· Chicken
· 2 Tablespoons butter
· 2 cans biscuits

1. Place the chicken, butter, soup, and onion in a slow cooker, and fill with enough water to cover.
2. Cover, and cook for 5 to 6 hours on High. About 30 minutes before serving, place the torn biscuit dough in the slow cooker. Cook until the dough is no longer raw in the center.
Breakfast for Supper

Taco Salad:
· 1 lb ground beef
· Lettuce
· Salsa
· Refried beans
· Cheese
· Tomato

· Taco Seasoning

Brown ground beef. Follow directions on the Taco seasoning. You may add refried beans to the mix. Put over a bed of lettuce and add your favorite taco toppings!

Breakfast for Supper (Quiche):

*Frozen Pie shell

*3 eggs

*1 cup heavy cream

*1/2 cup milk


In your frozen pie shell, add your ingredients such as cheese and whatever else you want. I use about half a bag of shredded cheddar, 7 pieces of canadian bacon, and a can of green chilies. Mix your other ingredients and pour on top of your whole ingredients. Cook at 350 degrees for about 30-40 minutes.

* I use both pie shells when I make this and just double the recipe. We eat one and freeze one for later. Using both pie shells, you can use a whole bag of shredded cheddar cheese, a package of canadian bacon. Works great!


* 1 Thin Crust pizza

* Pizza Sauce

* Turkey Pepperoni

* Pizza cheese

* Cavendar's seasoning

* Italian seasoning

On crust add pizza sauce, then cheese, pepperoni, and seasoning. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Wonderful! A frozen pizza will do as well!
