This Week's Menu

We are obsessed with food in this house.  And I like a good plan.  Especially, since I have about 20-30 minutes to prepare a meal before my child goes crazy and acts like we are starving her each evening after we get home from work. I'm pretty excited for this week.

Sunday - Homemade meatballs on day old Jimmy John's bread ( we LOVE day old JJ's bread).  Seriously, it is amazing and cheap! We've made garlic bread with it, Philly steak and cheese sandwiches and tonight - meatball sandwiches!

Monday - Spaghetti with leftover homemade meatballs and JJ's bread made into garlic bread.

Tuesday - Out to Bennigans to enjoy their $1 kid's meal and a visit with Santa ;)

Wednesday - Baked Chicken Quesadillas (using chicken leftover from our whole chicken (we froze it!) that we cooked last weekend and made homemade stock and chicken and dumplings!

Thursday - Skillet Chicken Parmesan (THIS IS AMAZING! We made it a couple weeks ago and yumm)

Friday - Beef Enchiladas

Saturday -  leftovers

Sunday - Christmas Party

I get a slight thrill out of re purposing food/using leftovers to make something different.  Also, I'm liking our family grocery shopping trips we've had the last couple of weeks and definitely buying everything on sale/stocking up and just restocking our basic needs.  We saved about 50 bucks off of what we'd been spending in just being a little more smart with our purchases.

What's for dinner at your house? Any recipe you think we should try out? Where do you get your food inspiration?
