Meal Plan Monday
Sorry I missed posting last week's meals. I'll post them below this week's current menu.
While I'm not participating *really* in the Eat From the Pantry challenge, I have been trying to use up what we have and have gone back to my cash only grocery system which I got away from after baby #5 was born. I'm amazed how much just using cash and being intentional in my tracking has saved us!
This week I'm cleaning out the freezer.
Sunday: Leftover Italian pasta soup (from last week), biscuits, canned peaches and sliced apples. Chocolate chip pumpkin muffins for dessert.
Monday: Stromboli (ham or pepperoni), carrots.
Tuesday: Pork tenderloin, mashed potatoes, peas. Here's the full article for "fool-proof" grilled pork tenderloin. Includes brining tip and cooking instructions.
Wednesday: Chicken mushroom casserole (from freezer), broccoli, 5 minute Artisan bread.
Thursday: Pulled bbq chicken sandwiches. (shredded chicken from the freezer and homemade burger rolls from the freezer as well.) sweet potato fries, raw veggies.
Friday: Baked salmon, rice (make extra for Saturday), peas.
Saturday: Pork fried rice (with leftover tenderloin from Tuesday)
And last week:
Saturday: Trader Joes orange chicken, rice, brocolli
Sunday: Chicken pot pie, mashed potatoes, fruit.
Monday: Tomato, basil, spinach chicken over pasta.
Tuesday: Italian veggie soup, homemade rolls
Wednesday: Burgers, fries, apples
Thursday: Marsala chicken, leftover pasta from Monday.
Friday: Black beans and rice. (mix 1 can black beans with one can tomatoes and diced chilies)
Saturday: spaghetti and salad at 8isgreat's house.
