Menu Plan Monday

A few months ago I purchased a 5 gallon bucket of frozen raspberries.  Luckily I had room top just put it in the freezer.  Last week I pulled it out because I volunteered to make some raspberry cheesecake topping for a leadership meeting.....WHAT WAS I THINKING???? 
Once they unthawed, this bucket was not going to fit in my fridge. (Panic moment)  I had to take care of these raspberries and fast. In one day I made jam and lots of it.
I also made a gallon of plain raspberry sauce and a gallon of chocolate raspberry sauce.
There is still a 1/2 gallon of strained raspberries in my fridge I need to take care of.
Let's say I am a little raspberried out.....
This week's menu is pretty basic.  I am trying to do low calorie for me and high carbs for my runner!!
Let's see if I can pull it off.

Check out what other's are cooking this week at Menu Plan Monday!


  1. Look at all that jam and sauce! WOW!

    Yummy looking menu! We love goulasch, but I haven't made it in quite a while.

  2. Another genius menu! I especially want to try the crock pot BBQ chicken recipe (and of course, I just happen to have a can of Cherry Coke Zero in the fridge).

  3. First off I am impressed that you had room for a 5 gallon bucket in your freezer! After making all of the jam and sauces, I would not even want to smell raspberries for a while.

    I am going to have to try the spaghetti casserole. Sounds good!

  4. Whoa, that's a lot of raspberries. How nice that you now have all that jam and sauce ready to use!

  5. I was visiting Jo at Blog-Diggidy and found you. I am quite impressed with all that raspberry jam and sauce! It looks wonderful! The only thing better would be if I had some of that jam on a buttered biscuit to go with my coffee this morning!! :)

  6. Yum yum - your raspberry photos are bringing a big smile to my face :) You are so inventive!
