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.
We re-purposed our Taco Pie leftovers from the night before and made them into nachos. Yummm.
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.
I made egg mcmuffin sandwiches with coffee for the adults. Milk for the child.
Leftover chicken noodle soup
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?
