What to Expect

This week at These Old Cookbooks, we are serving up delicious meals that Grandma would approve. All of these recipes have simple ingredients (see our grocery list at the bottom of this post) and are easy to follow.

We’ve got some time-saving strategies this week!  You’ll find that we use our Crock Pot multiple times this week. It does all the hard work while you are having fun with your family or are at work. It also is nice during the summer months because it won’t heat up the house.

We have a super fast, super easy main course on Tuesday night with our Easy Sloppy Joes made with just ketchup, onions and ground beef. But better yet, make extra because you are going to use the leftover Friday night for Sloppy Joe Cups.  Stuff the leftovers in canned biscuits topped with shredded cheese and you’ll have a whole new meal.

There are also some substitutions you could make to save money. Buy a large bag of shredded cheddar cheese (or block) and use it in both cabbage casserole and sloppy joe cups (instead of the Colby jack it calls for). Also, buy yourself a large bag or package of chicken tenders since you’ll need them for Potato Chip Crusted Chicken Tenders and Amaretto Chicken and Rice.

See the grocery list below (we didn’t include the ingredients from recipes NOT on our site). You most likely won’t need everything on that list. We are betting that you have many of these ingredients already in your refrigerator or pantry!

Weekly Meal Plan, Week 12

Saturday: Crock Pot Beef Brisket, Old Fashioned Cheesy Cabbage Casserole

This Crock Pot Beef Brisket, which takes minutes to prep, will make you look like a superstar this season when you serve it as part of your holiday menu.

Celebrate Saturday with Amaretto Pina Coladas.

Break out the blender and make this Amaretto Pina Colada for a taste of the beach any time of the year. The blended goodness of pineapple juice, cream of coconut and rum topped with a shot a Amaretto just shouts sunshine and fun.

Sunday: Serve brunch! Zucchini Quiche, Rhubarb Bread and Maple Sausage Pigs in a Blanket.

Southern Ambrosia from Southern Bite would be a delightful addition to brunch!

These Maple Sausage Pigs in a Blanket are perfect for breakfast, brunch or your next party. Make up a double or triple batch of these finger foods and watch them disappear. Young and old alike will come back for seconds and thirds of these sweet and savory treats.

Monday: Crunchy Potato Chip Crusted Chicken Tenders, French Dinner Salad

This French Dinner Salad itself is simple to throw together.  The base consists of romaine lettuce which even the pickiest eaters will gobble up.  The key for a beautiful presentation is to put the toppings in little piles on top of the bed of romaine instead of mixing it all together. 

Tuesday: Easy Sloppy Joes, Sweet and Sour Coleslaw

The main ingredient - after the ground beef - in these Easy Sloppy Joes is one that can be found in almost every household.

Wednesday: Tender Crock Pot Spare Ribs, Sauteed Swiss Chard and Beans

Sauteed Swiss Chard and White Beans is an Italian-inspired side dish that comes together quickly with only 4 ingredients---Swiss chard, olive oil, garlic and white beans.

Thursday: Amaretto Chicken and Rice, Creamed Peas

This Amaretto Chicken and Rice dish is ready in less than 20 minutes, perfect for a quick weeknight meal. With the juice of a fresh lemon and a splash (or two or three) of Amaretto, this recipe brings the flavor.

Friday: Sloppy Joe Cups, Crock Pot Baked Beans with Pineapple

These Crock Pot Baked Beans with Pineapple are a new take on a family favorite side dish. The pineapple chunks give each bite a burst of sweetness.
