Meal Plan Monday #80

This is the first week of second semester classes for me. I am enjoying the cooler weather here in Arizona and using the crockpot at least once per week. I also have a freezer full of sausage that we brought back from Mississippi after Christmas, so we are probably going to eat sausage fairly frequently.

Sunday:  Roasted Vegetables with Conecuh Sausage

Monday:  Potato Casserole with Broccoli

Tuesday:  Mississippi/Pepperoncini Pot Roast with Cheese Grits and Pretzel Rolls


Thursday:  Chipotle Lime Salmon with Rice

Friday:  Date Night! Lib's Pick!

Roasted Vegetables with (or without) Sausage

Several months ago, I wanted roasted red potatoes to go with something Darren was cooking for dinner. I found this video recipe from Chef John, and we were both hooked. Following this basic recipe, I have since expanded into using a whole medley of vegetables and adding sausage towards the end of the roasting time to make a one dish meal.

I sure do miss this face.
