Week #14. Last week, I didn't share our meals, but it was a good "from the pantry" week. I've also decided to change my routine, and plan the week's dinner menus on Sunday. Then, I can head to the store on Sunday afternoon if I need ingredients, or I can go on Monday. I should also be able to go around whatever vegetables we get from our CSA basket more easily since we get it on Thursday afternoon.
So, here's what we're eating this week:
Sunday: Spaghetti & Garlic Bread
Monday: Chicken Fajitas & Re fried Beans
Tuesday: Pulled Pork Sandwiches, Cole Slaw and Raw Veggies
Wednesday: Salmon, Spinach Salad, Broccoli & Bread
Thursday: Individual Tuna Noodle Cups & leftover Salads
Friday: I'm on my own (Ray is out of town & kids are busy with Make-A-Wish Night at school...looks like yummy leftovers for me!
Saturday: Take out (Thai) with the Jacobson Family!
I've chosen meals that have me mostly using items from our pantry, refrigerator and freezer as well as use some leftovers from last week. So, that means that I'll be going out of my comfort zone a little bit, and will be making things from scratch: adding items to my jar of pasta sauce for our spaghetti, using leftover chicken breasts from our Saturday night BBQ for our fajitas, making a batch of re fried beans in the crock pot, using gemelli instead of egg noodles for my tweaked tuna noodle casserole recipe. I will also make sure to use up whatever leftovers we have before the weekend arrives.
I can't wait!
