Menu Plan Monday ~ January 7th
Welcome to a brand new week!
Somehow over the holidays I wound up with an abundance of food in my freezer so over the next couple of weeks I’ll be trying to use up what I’ve got on hand. Not only will be this be great for my grocery bill but also for my freezer so I can think about doing the defrosting that is needing to be done!
Also you’ll notice that starting with this week I am going to start including Saturday in my menu planning. I didn’t traditionally plan for the weekends due to wanting to leave room for some flexibility in the weekly plan but I’ll still have Sunday open for that. Saturdays have become busy family days and having a menu plan for that day will allow us to spend more time together. Sundays are typically leftover days or soup and sandwich days. Just simple and easy. No fuss, no muss.
It seems I have collected an abundance of recipe links in my Favorites from when I do my MPM crawl each week. I’ve just been adding these recipe links to a folder I simply titled Recipes. However I got frustrated today while trying to search all these links for a particular recipe so right there and then I had to stop what I was doing to create myself some sub-folders titled chicken, pork, beef, meatless, desserts and drinks. Hopefully this will save me some time in the long run.
So my menu plan for this week:
Monday: Ground Beef Spiral Bake (Simple & Delicious Jan/Feb 08 ~ not yet listed on website) ~ this recipe makes enough for two casseroles so one can be frozen for later
Tuesday: Slow Cooker Chicken and Rice
Wednesday: Slow Cooked Ribs (Simple & Delicious Jan/Feb 08 ~ not yet listed on website) served with Garlic New Potatoes
Thursday: Leftover buffet
Friday: Pizza Night (I’ve been using my bread maker for the crust and it tastes terrific)
Saturday: Turkey burgers with fries
Sunday: Anything goes
