Weekly Menu Plan~Mashed Potato Casserole

By May 16, 2010Menu Planning

Welcome to another great Weekly Menu Plan! Just like last week, I’ll have to admit that my meals aren’t going as smoothly as they usually do. Once again, hopefully this week, I can get caught up a little and get back on schedule.

I have a really delicious, easy to throw together Mashed Potato Casserole recipe for you. It’s another one of the great dishes I cooked during my Make Ahead Meal Cooking Day. My husband loves these potatoes, they are rich, creamy and a great dish to prepare ahead too. We had this Mashed Potato Casserole last week with our Meatballs in Gravy. I got some pictures done, and added them to the post.

You can find the other great dishes I cooked for the Make Ahead Meal Cooking Day on my Budget Friendly Meal page.
