Meal Plan Monday

Pin It
Monday: Cook a deer and beef roast in the crock pot and make

A. Stew: meat, potatoes, and carrots
B. Fajitas: ,eat, mixed veggies, and rice
C. Chili: meat, beans, veggies on the side

Other options this week:

A. Shrimp with noodles and veggies
B. Homemade Pizza: Dough recipe compliments of my good friend Susannah

"3 cups all-purpose flour
1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)


Combine flour, salt, sugar, and yeast in a large bowl. Mix in oil and warm water. Spread out on a large pizza pan. Top as desired.
Bake at 375 degrees C (190 degrees C) for 20 to 25 minutes.

I usually let it rest for 10 minutes. Also this makes a lot of dough. I don't know how you like your pizza crust, but this seems to be too much for 1 pizza. We usually spread this out into 2 rectangle pans and have thin crust. Just do it to your taste. If you do make thin crust, you will probably want to adjust your time to around 15 - 20 instead. Sometimes I like to brush with olive oil and garlic before topping with sauce and toppings."


  1. Mmmmmm stew sounds so good. It is getting that time of year when soups and stews taste so good.

    Have you ever made your pizza on the grill? That is our favorite way to make it.

  2. Your post brought back such fond memories of my Mom's stew and biscuits and cold wintery days! My Dad went deer hunting every fall and if he was successful, we had deer meat for my Mom's stew!

  3. Mmmm fajitas! I so need to make some soon :)

  4. The pizza dough sounds easy to make. I will have to try it with the grandchildren. I am lucky to be going home for the weekend and will actually have all four grandchildren together at the same time. This only happens at the most twice a year. So pizza will be fun to make with them.
    I hope you have a great weekend.
