Menu Monday

It's another semi-uneventful week in the Brown household. I think I got most of my ingredients this week though.

Mon: Baked Potato Soup

It's supposed to get cold and rainy here (again) starting tonight, so I thought this might be good to make. It's also going to be dark when we get home (thanks daylight savings time) so it will feel even colder and nastier.

Tues: Easy Corndogs

I love hot dogs and any incarnation of them (corn dogs, beanie weenies, all that gross stuff). As gross as it sounds, they are one of my favorite foods. I might make some potato wedges to go with this, but I'll probably just be lazy and we'll just have the corn dogs.

Wed: Ham Steaks with Cheesy Broccoli Mashed Potatoes

I've been wanting to make these for a while, but I always get side tracked when planning my meals and normally only plan for main dishes. My sides and salads Pinterest board has been severely neglected for a while. These look pretty easy and like they'd be a healthier option than mashed potatoes.

Thurs: Freezer food

We still have lots of random bits of things leftover in our freezer. KB will be deer hunting for the next 2 weeks, so I've got to make some room before there's deer everywhere.

Bonus time!

Pumpkin Spice White Hot Chocolate

I was planning on making this on Saturday, but it ended up being kind of warm here that day. We also worked outside in the yard all day, so by the time we got inside the last thing I wanted was a really hot cup of hot chocolate. Hopefully I can pull it together enough this week to make it.

Dutch Apple Pie

KB's work Thanksgiving is on Thursday. He signed me up for a cake. I don't really bake cakes. I'm going to make a pie and everyone is just going to deal. We still have lots of apple leftover from my in-laws, so hopefully I can use them up in this. I'll probably grate the apples instead of chopping them. I've done that before and I like it better that way.

What will you be cooking/eating this week???


  1. I love corn dogs! I am making a BBQ roast tomorrow in the Crockpot.

  2. I've never heard of baked potato soup but it looks pretty good & so does the pumpkin spiced hot chocolate!

  3. So jealous of this menu. Broccoli mashed potatoes? Genius. And those pumpkin hot chocolates look amazing! Please let me know how that turns out.
