I have been kind of struggling to think clearly this week to come up with a menu plan primarily due to lack of sleep, but I finally got up energy I didn't have yesterday to go through the freezers a bit more thoroughly and start figuring out what needs to be used up.
The biggest find was actually a whole chicken I found in the back of my fridge freezer drawer (how it ended up there, I have no idea). It's freezer burned and old (2013), so I'm going to defrost it, remove the worst of the freezer burned bits and try to make it into chicken taco meat (really heavily seasoned) to make it usable. I will let you know how that goes. So, we might or might NOT be having chicken tacos for dinner this Friday *laugh*.
We'll be having my daughter's birthday this week, but she wants the chicken strips and french fries for lunch on her birthday, so that works for me.
So, onto the menu plan for this week!
Menu Plan for Week of 2/15/16
Monday: Shrimp Cocktail, french fries
Tuesday: Honey Sriracha Chicken (this was pretty good. I just baked mine in the sauce instead of marinading it due to lack of time and it was still tasty!), salad, rice
Wednesday: Honey mustard pork chops, salad, bouillon rice (chicken tomato flavor)
Thursday: Corned beef hash, poached eggs, fruit cocktail
Friday: Chicken tacos
Saturday: Leftovers (I know we'll have some with the chicken tacos IF they turn out. If not we'll have hamburgers)
Sunday: Roast chicken, Cranberry relish (leftover from thanksgiving), stuffing/dressing, mashed potatoes and gravy
To Bake/Prepare: Crepes (for dinner next week. Put in freezer), cookies (for daughter's school for her birthday "treat"), birthday cake, bread. Baking day(s): Wednesday (cookies and bread), Friday (crepes). On birthday: birthday cake *laugh*.
Desserts: Three color jello mold (we've actually had this for dessert a couple of days so far this week already), birthday cake and leftover cookies (more than enough sweets for a week I'd say).
