Weekly Menu -- July 9 through July 15
This week we're having some more family visits centered around meals. My family tends to gather with food, like so many others, so I will be cooking a few meals this week for a crowd. My BBQ beef on Tuesday is a great dish for a crowd, and is very budget friendly. It's nothing fancy, but is very popular. It's my grandmother's recipe, so it's tried and true -- I'll post the recipe.
Also on Tuesday -- my Blueberry Crisp is a really easy "cheater" recipe. It uses canned pie filling and Bisquick -- two ingredients I normally shy away from, preferring made-from-scratch. But this fruit crisp recipe is good enough that I'll take the shortcut. I'll post the recipe.
There are also several feast days this week that we'll be incorporating into our menu. I've included the links for the recipes.
