Menu Plan Monday for June 15

A dark, drizzly, cool morning here in northern New England. Here's my menu plan:

MONDAY: Antipasto Salad ( a main-dish pasta salad leftover from Sunday's potluck at church), Focaccia Bread

TUESDAY: Basque Soup, Cheddar Cheese Bread

WEDNESDAY: Calzone, Pasta Salad

THURSDAY: Mt. Cube Hash (a baked casserole -- layers of carrots, potatoes, ground beef, onions, tomato soup), Baking Powder Biscuits

FRIDAY: Greek Spinach Pie, 3-Bean Salad

SATURDAY: Hot Dogs, Homemade Baked Beans, Coleslaw

SUNDAY: Beef Barley Soup, Oatmeal Bread

If you would like to see menus which others have shared, head over to I'm an Organizing Junkie and check out the links. Often, well over 300 people share links to their weekly menus. You'll find some great ideas and often recipes too.


  1. OK gotta try the Mt. Cube cassarole. I'll have to sub some ingredients, but it sounds really yummy. Did this recipe come from Mt. Cube Farm?

    I didn't do a menu this week. Last week everything changed so much due to what came to us from the veggie place, that it seemed like a futile attempt to plan. I guess cooking will be off the cuff for the summer anyway.

  2. Hi there Mrs. Doug!

    I will see that you get the recipe. Yes, this is Gale's recipe. Years ago when she was the first lady of NH, she was written up in a cooking series in the newspaper. This is one of the recipes she shared. It's not a top favorite of mine (although it *is* very tasty) but my parents absolutely adore it, and Thursday's meal is the one I make for them. If you are interested, I have a condensed soup substitute that I make as needed for recipes that call for it. I think the only change you would have to make in that soup recipe would be to sub whole wheat flour for white. I will get the recipe to you by the weekend.

    See you soon!
