Meal Plan Monday 10/10

Last week we only skipped one meal! I'm so proud of us for sticking to the menu plan. Well, kind of. The night we were supposed to have spinach/pasta bake I planned to fix ziti until I realized that I did indeed need to have cottage cheese to make the ziti. Oops. So I created something kind of lke ziti, kind of like spagheti that turned out amazing. (The recipe is scheduled to be posted this week.) Monday night, hubby grilled our steak. It was freezing outside and he burnt the steak to a crisp - inedible burnt. Even the dogs had a hard time chewing it. He was really wanting steak so he pulled another pack out of the freezer. Saturday, we were at a birthday party that ended up serving dinner (I guess when you have a party that starts at 5:00, dinner would more than likely be served). The chicken corn chowder turned out great, but because we had so many other great meals (enchiladas!) the leftovers didn't get eaten. So I'll freeze them to be brought out for a dinner in a few months.

This week, we're eating out of the freezers and pantry again. I did go grocery shopping (for the whole month) and we have plenty of fresh fruits which should last us at least a week and a half, possibly two weeks. I'm trying to work with what I have and not run to the store to "grab that deal".


Meatloaf (in the freezer)

Roast Chicken (freezer)

Chicken Alfredo (using leftover roasted chicken)

Leftovers, or if there is none, Steak

  5. I had to laugh when I read that dog had a difficult time chewing the burnt steak! I'm sure the hubby felt bad.
    I loved attend birthday parties when our son was younger. People would actually feed you.
    The Bourdon Chicken looks amazing. I'm definitely going to bookmark that recipe. I've got a lot of chicken in the freezer.
    You have a terrific week!
