okay you sparked my interest with potato pizza?? You’re also the 3rd person who had cheeseburger something or another on their menu – must be the weather.

I love the sound of the impossible cheeseburger pie!

Love your giveaway – I’ve seen those but haven’t tried them yet. I’ll check out your cheeseburger pie rec. – I have one I make that the kids LOVE.

I love the potato pizza, and extending the table is a great frugal cook-book! D & I bought our own after borrowing yours. :) I use it a lot; in fact 2 of our meals came from it this week!

Great looking menu!! The cheeseburger pie sounds scrumptious and can’t wait to check out your other dishes this week! :D

More With Less is my favorite cookbook! I am making more and more meals with it! Thai fried noodles sounds really good.


Tina December 8, 2008 at 11:35 am

This menu sounds delicious this week. I love it when menus have variety, and this is exactly what yours has.

Ok I can’t wait to see the potato pizza either.

I LOVE “More with Less” and my friend just gave me “Extending the Table” for my birthday. I haven’t finished reading it yet, but look forward to the night I can relax with it and read!

I would be interested in hearing what other recipes you all like from More with Less. I also received one as a gift lately and like to hear what recipes have gone over well with others. Thanks.

Excellent list! Have a wonderful week.

These look like great dinner ideas. I’m just getting into the whole meal planning thing after years of eating dinner out every night. So far my favorite cookbook to use is Cooking with All Things Trader Joe’s since that’s where I do most of my shopping, and the recipes are easy enough that even a kitchen disaster like me can make them work. :)
