This week I'm using up some things that I found when I finally got down to the depths of my refrigerator freezer. I found another bag of pesto pucks from last year (I thought I was out), a lowly bag of tomato sauce I had frozen from the garden produce last year (once again, thought I was out) and I found a couple of really cool gems in the mix too that I'm hoping to use up over the next couple of weeks (like hamburger!).
Menu Plan for Week of 4/25/16
Monday: Club sandwiches (we ate leftovers last week and I didn't get to make these until yesterday. They were yummy!).Desserts: Winging that one this week! Maybe cake...still up in the air.
Tuesday: Easy Manicotti (I'll share this recipe hopefully this week. It's non-traditional, but really good. Everyone I've ever shared the recipe with loves it :).
Wednesday: Pork chops, easy potatoes gratin (didn't make this last week either due to a LOT of leftover baked potato soup. I used this recipe, but used some of my box of potatoes to make it. It turned out REALLY thin even after mashing potatoes into the broth, so I took a corn starch slurry to thicken it. I also used ham instead of bacon to flavor it with. It came out tasty although the left overs were pretty salty tasting), green beans.
Thursday: Chicken Pesto Pasta (use pesto pucks in freezer).
Friday: Pancakes with cinnamon syrup, bacon, eggs
Saturday: Meatballs in white sauce over pasta (use ground beef and ground turkey for meat). Salad.
Sunday: Hamburgers, french fries, fruit cocktail.
To make/prepare: Canning stuff takes precedence this week.
There you go folks. My menu plan for the week. How about you? Anything cool going on in your kitchen this week?
