Menu Plan Monday: November 29, 2010

Last night we finished up our Thanksgiving leftovers.  They were so tasty and I enjoyed finding different ways to serve them.  One night we had ham, mashed potatoes, green beans, and rolls.  Another night we had ham, scrambled eggs, and grits.  And it was nice to spend less time cooking too.

For the first time ever, I made homemade pumpkin muffins from pumpkin that I cooked myself. The recipe made 32 muffins. I took them to the Thanksgiving meal, gave some away, and we still had plenty to eat this week. The kids have been excited to eat them for breakfast.

Sunday – ham, scrambled eggs, grits, fruit
Made with leftover ham from Thanksgiving.

Monday – chili
Frito Pie – fritos, chili, sour cream, tomatoes, cheese
