I made some copies of my favorites. I thought it would be fun to serve a different meal everyday following the plans offered. Even basic meals can take on a new twist! I am starting with the Cheesy Meat Loaf, GOlden Potato Bake, Vegetable Relishes, Pineapple-Cherry Crisp. How about Rump Roast with vegetables, Tossed Salad with French dressing, and Orange Meringue Pie for dessert.
A few sample recipes that caught my eye are:
Farmer's Breakfast, Nicoise Salad, Choco-Cherry Cake Roll, Pear-Banana-Lime Mold, Maple Glazed Squash, Mustard Sauced Cabbage, Pineapple Custard Mold, Savory Chicken Pies.....
The "How Much to Buy" chart on the inside cover helps you plan your food purchases by determining the amount of various foods you need to serve two, three or four, and you can simply multiply if serving more.
