This week I will be supplementing stuff from the freezer with recipes from Dori Sanders' Country Cooking (1995.)
Our menu is as follows:
Sunday - Nachos & Fresh Veggies
Monday - Chicken Curry over Rice w/Tomato & Cucumber Salad
Tuesday - Turducken, Fried Corn, and Mess o' Greens Salad w/Warm Pecan Dressing
Wednesday - Frog Legs over a Big Salad
Thursday - Braised Venison Steak, Mashed Potatoes, & Steamed Carrots
Friday - Date Night
Saturday - Leftovers
This is part of MPM.
