Menu Plan Monday Cheesy Potato Casserole, Goulash Recipe

Menu plan Monday
When I say Simply raising 8 I mean it.. Simple and easy.. You won’t find any fancy cooking terms here and a lot of the meals we make were probably meals your grandma made during the depression to make meals go far enough to feed a brood!

Things I have in the fridge that I should use this week are.
·        Mushroom soup in a Tupperware that was not needed for the GB casserole at Thanksgiving.
·        Eggs
·        Lettuce
·        Shredded cheese
·        Ranch dip
·        Sour cream
·        Cream cheese
·        Brick cheese
·        2  grand’s biscuits
·        Chicken broth
·        Canned tomatoes in a Tupperware
·        Peas
·        Carrots leftover
·        Potatoes leftover

Since I usually have my pantry stocked with Staples such as flour sugar pasta noodles crackers rice etc… I can put this with that to make the weeks meals so I don’t waste what’s in the fridge.
Emergency meals this week are: #1 Stouffers Enchilada bake with Chips and cheese, and #2Grilled Cheese sandwiches.  These are the meals that are quick and easy in case something comes up that makes it so we are unable to cook a “Real” Meal!
