Here we go again! More meals from my Master Meal List. Again I have updated it. I think I will be doing that frequently until I get it exactly like I want it. Some recipes follow.

Stir Fry/Main Dish Salad/Freezer Meal – Mom’s Beef and Noodles, black eyed peas, salad and strawberries

Meatloaf, mashed potatoes, corn, salad (my husband’s favorite meatloaf recipe) and blueberry cobbler

Fish/Lentils/Meatless – Lentil quiche (Sounds weird, but we are going to try it)

Italian Night – Garlic butter pasta with chicken and broccoli and some kind of fruit

Homemade Pizza and salad

Then we usually have one leftover night and one really easy night like popcorn and sandwiches.

Mom’s Beef and Noodles

1 lb. Round steak (I’m using beef tips)

1 pkg Egg Noodles

1 pkg Beef gravy mix

4 cups Water

Put meat in crock pot. Add about 4 cups of water and beef gravy mix. Cook on low 6-8 hours or on high 2-3 hours. Cook egg noodles according to package directions. Pour meat and gravy over egg noodles and serve.

Garlic Butter Pasta with Chicken and Broccoli

I just make this up as I go so it is not really accurate as far as measurements.

Dice and cook chicken in a pan drizzled with olive oil until chicken is no longer pink. Cook broccoli in microwave or on pan until tender. Cook pasta according to package directions. Sauté ½ clove of garlic in 2 Tablespoons of butter. Drain pasta and add it to the garlic and butter. Add more 2-3 more Tablespoons of butter and add in the chicken and broccoli. That is it. This is also one of my husband’s favorite meals.
