I'll get into my week more in the Frugal Friday recap. For now let's focus on food.
Currently there is a 10 lb log of frozen hamburger defrosting in my fridge. I bought it frozen from Three Bears last year and it's just been sitting in the freezer because, while I got it super cheap, I was like, "Man, what am I going to do with 10 lbs of hamburger?" Because I really don't have a choice but to defrost the entire thing at once. I think I finally came up with a good plan, so I am going to be processing that this weekend on top of doing lots of baking and reorganizing on the food and freezer front. I'm kind of looking forward to it. I'm a person who really does LIKE to be organized, but life usually gets in the way of me getting it to work too well.
So, anyway, past the huge amount of hamburger that I have managed to creatively stuck into the fridge to defrost (since it's like 2' long), let's get to the menu plan for the week!
Wednesday: Left over stuffed pork roulade (fancy name for "pork roll"...seen up top after a few pieces had been eaten by the daughter *laugh*) with applesauce (from pantry)
Thursday: Leftover pork roulade (I had a terrible headache last night, so leftovers were, once again, on the menu. It was my husband's idea...I'm glad he really liked the pork roll :).
Friday: Waffles, bacon, fruit cocktail
Saturday: Hamburgers on home made buns, oven fries (trying out and seeing if red potatoes make good oven fries...we shall see!)
Sunday: Beef pies with apple pie for dessert (it's "Pie-a-palooza" night ;). This is the first day of my husband's new shift (yay pay increase!) so I want to make sure he's got something easy to eat on the go in case he's really busy.
Monday: Chicken noodle soup
Tuesday: Ham and cheese croissants (I got four croissants from the food pantry, so I figured it's be a good chance to use them), fruit cocktail
Breakfasts: English muffins (from freezer), toast, cereal (from pantry), oatmeal, muffins (to make), eggs and bacon.
Snacks: Boiled eggs, cantaloupe (was also on sale for .99 each last week, so I grabbed one when I got the peaches, cut it up and placed it in the fridge), yogurt and jam, cookies (to make) and milk.
So, there it is. Our menu, such as it is, for this week. How about you? Got anything yummy you are making this week?
