Menu Mondays

Oh yeah I do provide food for this ever-expanding family. Lately though, I haven't been in a cooking mood. I blame my travelling hubby and Butterbean for making every meal I can think of make me gag. That has all passed and the weather is really cooling off so I am cooking again. This week is:

Monday: porcupine meatballs, corn, broccoli
Tuesday: chicken and wild rice casserole
Wednesday: lasagna (at church)
Thursday: sausage ring and fruit
Friday: taco soup and quesadillas

I am already hungry. Wait that is Butterbean's fault again. And if anybody wants to join in you can go here to get started.


  1. Please tell me about this porcupine meatball??

  2. Here you go Meredith--super easy and Hutch loved it last night!

    Porcupine Meatballs


    1 pound ground beef
    1 egg
    1 cup cooked white rice
    onion salt and pepper to taste
    1 can of beef gravy
    Cook rice according to package directions. You can make more than one cup if you would like the rice as a side dish.
    Mix the ground beef with the egg in a mixing bowl. Once the rice is cool enough, mix it in as well. Add in the onion salt and pepper to taste.

    Shape the mixture into 2 inch meatballs and place in a baking/casserole dish. I usually get about 9 meatballs.

    Pour gravy over top and bake covered at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Check the inside of one to make sure it is done.
