Today was quesadillas with homemade salsa and guacamole. I brought home a cooler full of lower 48 produce from my vacation, so it was really, really good.

Sunday: Beef fajitas (to finish off our salsa and use up our actually unwrinkled red peppers)

Monday: Thai red curry with shrimp, red peppers, snow peas, and pineapple

Tuesday: Scotch broth and rolls

Wednesday: Korean bbq pork, rice, korean spinach, kimchi

Thursday: Soup (already made and frozen) and cornbread muffins

-Beans (The veggies don't really fit in, we are trying to use up old things)
-Home made macaroni

Monday:
-Minestrone soup (From a bag, just add water and heat!)
-Salad
-French bread

Tuesday:
-Chili
-Corn bread
-Carrots and celery with dressing

Wednesday:
-Macaroni and Cheese with tuna
-Salad

Thursday:
-Tostadas
-Carrots and celery with dressing

Friday:
-Chicken sausages
-Spaghetti
-Salad

Saturday: Eat out night

Well, long story short, I just got out of the hospital after 4 days.

We had a huge ham slice I froze after Christmas and some pierogies.

Awwww, I hope you're on the mend!

We had crockpot beef roast, noodles and honey carrots. Had enough beef and noodles left for my lunch tomorrow plus another dinner. Going to move the salisbury steak I had planned for later this week to next week and add beef and noodle leftovers. No food waste this year!

I cheated - the grocery store was having a great sale ($1/each for huge stuffed clams which each feed 1 adult, so I bought and used them as a special Sunday treat (and they were good...

Maybe I'll have to try and duplicate them sometime!

Well we just finished week 1 of our 4 week meal plan and we stuck to it. We decided we needed to be healthier and not spend so much on eating out. I meal planned and shopped for the entire month (of course still have to go get bread,milk,etc weekly). We spent new yrs weekend cooking and freezing so now we can reap the rewards. This week's menu is
Monday parmasean meatloaf rice and green beans(this is a new recipe for us)
Tues brisket w/ pot and carrots, and corn bread
Wed chicken pot pie and salad(pot is in freezer ready to put in oven)
Thur beef roast with carrot and mashed pot (crock pot)
Fri homemade pizzas
Sat chilidog casserole and tater tots (another new recipe)

I am trying to figure out why we didnt do this before. It made life so much simpler last week. I am planning on doing this all year. We were eating out 3-4 times a week. It was expensive and unhealthy so we decided not eating out in Jan and then starting in Feb we will eat out 1x a month for supper. We are also stopping the picking up lunch together on my days off and eating leftovers or sandwiches at home.
