Meal Plan Monday for September 26 thru October 2

What a rough week! I went by to take my mother to her foot doctor appointment, and on the way she told me to take her to the emergency room. She has COPD and Congestive Heart Failure and was having a really hard time breathing even though she’s always on oxygen.

She’s still in there and I’m not sure when she will get out or if she will need to go to a nursing home or be able to go back to her own home when she gets out. Not fun. Sometimes life is hard and it sure is hard to see our parents deteriorate.

Hopefully this coming week will be better.

Okay, now on to this week’s menu:

Chicken Noodle Soup
Garden Salad

Ham and Cheesy Potatoes

Chicken Stir Fry


Fast Food Friday

Grilled Steak
Baked Potatoes
Green Beans

BBQ Chicken


Today I’m going to  share with you my easy Ham and Cheesy Potato Casserole. I often make this after we have a ham and have lots of ham left overs. I’ll chop up the ham and freeze it in 2 cup serving sizes to use in this dish. It makes a cheap and filling dish.

Ham and Cheesy Potatoes

1 to 2 cups of chopped ham
2 cans of cheddar cheese soup
1 c milk
8 oz shredded cheddar
6-10 (depending on how many servings you need) peeled and sliced potatoes

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.
Spray a baking pan with cooking spray.
Lay your sliced potatoes in the bottom of the pan.
Mix ham in with the potatoes.
Mix the cheddar cheese soup with milk and pour over the ham and potatoes.
Sprinkle the shredded cheddar on top. We like lots of cheese so I use the whole 8 ounce bag but you can use less if you don’t want quite so much cheese.
Bake for about an hour or until potatoes are cooked through and top is golden brown.


Hope you enjoy it and have a great week!

  1. I’m sorry your mom is in such ill health, and I’m praying for her.

    On the lighter note, the menu looks rockin’. I won’t follow it to a T, but I’m going to try out a few of these. returning the love from VB and now following. Take care!

  2. I hope your mother is doing well, I understand where you are coming from. My mom had an episode with her heart a couple of weeks ago, very unexpected. She’s doing well but it’s quite amazing the change. Overnight I catapulted into the life of a ‘sandwich generation’ daughter. It’s very difficult managing two households and making sure everyone has what they need.

    Good luck and make sure you are taking care of yourself to!

  3. Thanks Liz! Yes, it is rough taking care of 2 households. I have been doing it for about 5 years now so I’m used to it but sometimes I get overwhelmed. And I often feel like I’m caught in the middle and being pulled both ways at the same time.

    You take care too.
