Wednesday- Filet Steak
Thursday- Chicken and Rice Casserole
Friday- Leftover Night
Saturday- Breakfast for Dinner
The rest of the family is sick while I am feeling better but we made it through the week pretty well according to plan. When we got to leftover night, it was like 80 degrees outside and we had very little leftovers int he fridge. I made my son some leftover chicken and french fries. My husband grilled a hamburger from the freezer and some boneless chicken I just bought. I also put some tater tots in with the fries so we would have a little side dish. I made a chopped salad with fried pepperoni and homemade croutons. We used up a lot of things in the fridge, freezer and cleaned up the kitchen to start the new week even though it wasn't a usual leftover night. The great news is that I took the lasagna out of the freezer to make over the weekend whenever we had time so I was ready to make it. Amazing that everything fell in place with sickness and me finally back to working both of my jobs this week after months of being sick so I am glad that we were able to pull it together and make it through the week....until I realized that it was already a new month that I had to do the darn meal plan for!!! UGH!
I went to the basement and figured out what was in the freezer- 6 bags of boneless chicken, 4 bags of ground beef, 2 bags of cooked ground sausage, 7 whole chickens, 2 Barber Chickens and 6 bags of meatballs. We have a lots of stuff in the house so I started making a plans for the month to see what we actually needed at the store to fill in the blanks. I started by filling all of the jars in the cupboard to get them ready for recipes like applesauce bread, chocolate chip muffins, scones and corn bread. I have been meaning to try another recipe to see if I can find one that my husband likes better so I went to the internet and searched. It is currently in the oven so time will tell if that works out to be the new recipe (stay tuned for recipe post soon). The menu plan quickly took form with all Monday, Tuesdays and Fridays filled in. I went with beef on Wednesday and Chicken on Thursday down the middle so only the weekends left to figure out. Here is the first week of March!!
