Hello! This week I had a hell of a time meal planning, I was not in the mood and for some reason felt like all food was too expensive and wished I could just make ramen every night. However with Mr. H being at the hospital doing his nurse thing I need to make meals that will fill him up when he gets home and will make good leftovers for the next day. O and then I wanted to come up with some fun meals for this weekend and basically just stressed myself out which is just silly but it happens!
I finally came up with this meal plan and then when we got to the grocery store the ribs I had planned on buying and having on Friday were not what I imagined from the picture in the ad so now we have no plan for Friday or Saturday.
Monday – Pork Medallions, Green Bean Casserole, Stuffing, Onion Gravy – yeah this has been on the menu for like two weeks but I finally made it and it was wonderful
Tuesday – Carbonnade Flamande – this is a Belgian beer and beef stew I am going to try out
Wednesday – Lasagna – yeah this was also on the menu for last week but by the time I was going to make it on Saturday I did not have enough milk for the bechamel sauce
Thursday – Chunky Beef and Bean Stew with Rice
Friday – Maybe eat out
Saturday – Who knows
Sunday – Pork Smothered Burritos
In our house leftovers really reign supreme and I love coming up with new ways to use the odds and ends in the fridge at the weekend.
Now I love chili on nachos but never want to make a whole pot of it to just make nachos so whenever we have some leftover this is usually my plan of attack.
Hot Sauce – optional
Chili – one with beans is best in my opinion
Sour Cream / Creme Fraiche / Gräddfil
What to do:
Preheat your oven – the temperature will really depend on your oven but I normally put ours at 175 C
Layer chips on the bottom of a large baking dish
Dash hot sauce over chips
Ladle over heated up chili
Sprinkle cheese generously over chili, hot sauce, and chips
Repeat till you have filled your baking dish
Bake until the cheese on top is very melted and the rest of ingredients are heated through
Pile on your plate and then cover with thinly sliced lettuce, salsa, and sour cream / creme fraiche / gräddfil
This is a meal I love to eat and is great for hangovers! What is your favorite nacho topping?
