The Menu for the Week...

Now that I'm back to work and my dinner planning/prep time isn't as relaxed as it was during the summer I am really pushing myself to menu plan.  I hate when I am making multiple trips the grocery store for crap aka spending more than we need to when I seem to have a plethora of pantry/freezer items.  This week I'm feel super good about myself because we used up a lot of freezer stuff and pantry items.

For breakfast my husband made us pancakes and we had leftovers that we froze so that I can give them to Isla during the week.

Lunch -
We re-purposed our Taco Pie leftovers from the night before and made them into nachos.  Yummm.

Dinner -
My husband used up a ton of chicken we had in the freezer that needed to be used up and made homemade chicken noodle soup.

Breakfast -
I made egg mcmuffin sandwiches with coffee for the adults.  Milk for the child.

Lunch -
Leftover chicken noodle soup

Dinner -
Ribs, baked potato and homemade chocolate chip cookies for dessert

For the rest of the week's dinners we have:

Monday - Chili made in the crock pot (LOOOVE my crock pot!)
Tuesday - leftovers
Wednesday - BBQ Pork Shoulder in the Crock with baked potatoes and corn
Thursday - leftovers
Friday - Teriyaki Chicken withe veggies and pasta

My biggest thing for the week is to have leftovers every other night or sometimes like last week enough for three meals! I always try to make it slightly different with different sides or turning it into something else.

What is on your menu this week?
