Choice of yogurt and fruit smoothies, eggs in some form, or Apple Pie Muffins


Chicken and Barley Stew
with Buttery Bread Machine Rolls
Broccoli and Garlic Pasta
Chickpea Burgers
Black Bean and Tortilla Bake
Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup
Leftover Buffet

Check back tomorrow for the weekly shopping trip.

I love Patty Melts but have gotten away from eating a large hamburger. I have started browning ground beef when I get it sale and freeze in freezer bags. I use the ground beef crumbles to make the patty melt and find you get all the flavor with much less meat. I pound of uncooked ground beef will make about 5 sandwiches. I caramelize onions and then build the sandwich with cheese, onions, ground beef,and a little more cheese to hold everything together when it cooks. Kids love because they can "dip" the sandwich in ketchup. This is a great way to serve hamburgers on a budget.
