One of the meme's that many of you mentioned enjoying was my participation in Meal Plan Monday. So I will jump back in with my weekly meal plans.
This weeks brings a unique obstacle, as with us moving in just a few weeks time, I need to use up as much as I can from what we already have on hand with an emphasis on frozen and refrigerated goods.
My goal is to buy as little as possible.
M: Boiled potatoes with taco soup sauce and rolls
When I make taco soup, I make large quantities and freeze the extra, using up some of my frozen surplus. Using potatoes we have on hand and making rolls from some bread mixes I have on hand.
T: Soup with rolls
Using up a can of soup from the pantry, and homemade rolls.
W: Veggies fried rice, smoothies
I have some left over frozen peas and carrots from the last time I made veggies fried rice. Rice already on hand. Also have tons of smoothie ingredients to use up.
Th: Sloppy joes with fries
I have some beef in the freezer I got on sale for .77 cents a pound. Will use home made bread. Already have sloppy joe seasoning and a half pack of fries.
F: Penne pasta, with sloppy joe sauce, salad, rolls
Past already on hand. Using left over frozen sauce from when I made sloppy joe soup. Salad on hand and homemade rolls.
S: Fried potatoes and smoothies
Using potatoes and onions already on hand and frozen smoothies ingredients.
Su: Rice with paprika chicken sauce, salad, and rolls
Rice on hand. Paprika chicken sauce frozen leftovers, salad also on hand and homemade rolls.
I should only need to pick up some water and sandwich items for lunches :)
