So I'm jumping on the Band Wagon....

Now that just after one week my house is 100x cleaner than it has been in a long long time I am feeling a lot more relaxed I've decided to go one step further and try out the monthly meal planning...
Here it goes! This is what the Bakers are having for Supper (and Sat. Breakfasts) for the month of January!

So there you go! I'll give it a try and I'll let you know how well this turns out. I figure leftovers will make a great contribution to the kids school lunches as well as easy Sat/Sun lunches!

Here are a few recipes...
1lb ground turkey (I use beef or chopped chicken)
2 cups frozen mixed vegetables
1 can Italian style tomato sauce
1 1/2 cups cooked small pasta shells or elbow macaroni
3/4 tsp garlic salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 cup grated Parmesan Cheese

Heat oven to 400 degrees
Cook your meat in a frying pan until cooked through
Spread the meat in a casserole dish, stir in veggies, tomato sauce, seasoning, and pasta. Cover and bake 30 min or until veggies are tender, sprinkle with cheese.

2 cups Bisquick baking mix
1/4 cup milk
1 container French onion dip

Heat oven to 450
Mix all ingredients until a soft dough forms. Drop dough into 6 mounds on ungreased cookie sheet
Bake 10-12 minutes or until light golden brown.
