When I was constructing the Menu plan for this week and testing some recipes I realized I needed some ingredients for the menu.  What a wonderful option to be able to go on line and place an order for groceries delivered on the same day. Our Festival Express Grocery Delivery service has received wonderful reviews give it a try! This week’s menu includes a Chicken Enchilada recipe from Rick at our White Bear store.  I love chicken enchiladas and best of all it is another recipe that you can use our rotisserie chicken if you don’t have time to cook the fresh chicken. One of our family’s favorite meals is on the menu this week,  it is Pork Medallions with Mustard-Chive Sauce. We like to serve this with baked potatoes at our house. The pork cooks quickly so this is a quick meal to put together. Have yourself a lazy … Continue reading

Something I have noticed since I began making up a weekly menu plan at home is that we are not having any food go to waste!  Since we know what we’re going to cook the next night, we are immediately freezing leftovers and not letting them sit in the frig until they must be tossed because we have no plan for them, instead freezing and using leftovers for lunches or as part of our meal plan. Our menu for this week is here, I hope you enjoy. One of our menu items this week is frozen pizza, not just any frozen pizza though. We now carry Heggies Pizza in our frozen foods department. For years we have enjoyed this delicious pizza in small bars around town, now you can stock up your freezer for busy nights with family activities and no time to cook. Speaking of family activities; how about … Continue reading

This week’s menu includes a slow cooker recipe and we will do our best to bring you more of these one pot meals in the future, perfect for busy households. To bring a wider variety to our menu plan we are including links and recipes to other recipe sites as well as our own recipe pages. We will try whenever possible to offer some prepared sauces and components to make the recipe preparation even faster. The recipe for Nacho Burgers by Bobby Flay suggests you grill the burgers.A time-saver and warmer option in these cold months at our house is a grill pan for the stove top, most of our grilling is done on a grill pan. Always remember to cook ground beef to an internal temperature of 160 degrees, never assume that if a ground beef is brown in the middle, it is done, the only safe way to know … Continue reading
