Prepare Gwen's Old Fashioned Beef and Potatoes recipe - rinse the potatoes you stored in the refrigerator and drain well. Use in the recipe as directed.
In preparation for the Lasagna on Day 5, Cook 4 pounds of ground beef. Remove 1 1/2 cups of the cooked ground beef to use in the Lasagna. Meanwhile, cook the sausage for the Lasagna. Drain and add to the 1 1/2 cups of cooked ground beef. Use the remaining ground beef in the Beef and Potatoes Recipe. While the Beef & Potatoes bake, prepare the Lasagna for tomorrow's dinner. Cover and refrigerate until ready to bake on Day 5.
