When it comes to the menu plan this week, I'm working on using what we have in the house. I'm out of produce pretty much, at least fresh (all I really have left are root vegetables and apples for the daughter's snacks), so things like salad are out until payday next week (we don't really have any money at all till then). So, I'm just going to work on using up things I know I have, like I still have fresh potatoes and I do have one bag of pre-made meatballs that have been sitting in the freezer for a while, so I want to use those up. So, let's get to the menu for this week!
Thursday: Hamburgers on home made bread. tatar tots, apple pie for dessert
Friday: Pan fried pork chops, apple sauce, baked potatoes
Saturday: Ham slices (pre-cut in freezer), pea soup (I'm going to take Julia Child's "Edible Pea Pod Soup" recipe and tweak it to use frozen peas instead as I love the flavor of the soup I made last year :), rolls
Sunday: Meatball subs (make rolls), French fries, Mince meat tarts for dessert
Monday: Parchment baked fish with julienne vegetables (onions and carrots), rice
Tuesday: Country fried steak, cheesy mashed potatoes, green beans
Wednesday: Roast chicken, stuffing, roasted potatoes, cranberry sauce (make from the whole cranberries that are in the freezer).
Breakfasts: Easy croissants (I found a bunch of different recipes online, so I'm hoping to make the dough tonight to have for breakfast tomorrow with jam), toast, granola, cereal, oatmeal.
And there you are folks. Our menu for this week. How about you? Got anything neat planned for meals this week?
