Menu plan for the week of December 4

Hi everybody.  How's your December going?  Ours, so far, has not felt very December-ish.  The unseasonably warm temperatures have been wreaking havoc on our auxiliary refrigeration unit.  In fact, today thunderstorms are in the forecast.   It's supposed to get colder after that, but there still isn't really a good chance of snow in the near future.  I've heard that we're supposed to have an unusually snowy winter this year--hope that's true, but it's sure not looking like it at the moment.

I'm kind of regretting my decision to put our turkey carcass in the freezer, because now I'm having a hard time motivating myself to actually make the turkey stock.  If it had stayed in the fridge, the stock would be done by now.  It's not difficult, not at all--just time consuming.  And it definitely helps to have the auxiliary refrigeration unit up and running.  This week?  Maybe?

Here's what's on the menu this week:


  • Beef stroganoff, green beans, applesauce
  • Nachos with taco toppings and guacamole
  • Chicken broccoli braid (we use 1/2 t each celery salt, garlic powder, dill seed, and dill weed instead of 2 t all purpose dill mix), mandarin oranges
  • Hamburgers, buns, chips, carrots
  • Pizza (saucecrust), salad
  • Chicken nuggets, mixed veggies, pears
  • Grilled steak, mashed potatoes, grilled asparagus, applesauce
  • Grandpa R's chicken-rice soup, rolls
