    We make a list weekly and then decide the night before what we'll be having the next night. I always leave one night open for leftovers or fend for yourself nights.

    Open faced tacos-just refried beans and cheese on split taco shells toasted in the oven with different toppings.

    Spaghetti-using spaghetti squash as noodles, garlic bread and salad

    Pork Chops-Not sure how i'll cook these yet but it'll be served with homemade potatoe salad

    Chicken and Cabbage soup-spin off of chicken noodle only you replace the noodles with cabbage and potatoes.

    Tonight: Chinese duck noodle soup and onion pancakes
    Monday: Whatever DS asks for (in or out--it's his birthday).
    Tuesday: Sticky ribs, beans, baked potato
    Wednesday: Spaghetti and salad
    Thursday: Chicken and dumplings
    Friday: leftovers

    Tues-Thurs are items I have already made in my freezer. I'm trying a new thing--freezing leftovers instead of eating them the same week. We've been throwing too much food away since I often cook 4-6 portions and there are only 2 of us.

    Mom_Rides, I would love to know your recipe (or any other DISers!) for crockpot white bean chicken chili.

    I'm also looking for suggestions for what to do with ricotta cheese that isn't Italian or dessert. Any ideas appreciated!!

    Tonight we will have bacon potato pie, French onion soup, and salad. Not sure about the rest of the week.

    How about stuffed french toast with the ricotta? You could sweeten it up with some confectioners sugar and use Texas toast.

    This is the recipe I use. I just toss it all in the crock and let it cook all day. Super yummy! And the author is a pretty cool lady too!

    An easy go-to with leftover roasted chicken.

    Grab any jar of Indian sauce (Tikka Masala, Korma, Jalfrezi, etc), add 1/2 can of peas and/or chickpeas (or any roasted/steamed/canned veggies you like - sweet potatoes, white potatoes, carrots, tomatoes all work well) and serve with some rice. Dinner done in about the time it takes to cook rice and really, really easy, good, and different (ie - no one knows it's leftover:)...

    Things changed this week. Monday we ended up having a large lunch out, so we snacked for dinner.

    Yesterday we had frozen meals.

    Tonight is baked ham and cheese with tomato soup.

    I don't think I made a menu this week. We are 9 nights away from Disney departure day so next week will be using up what is left in the fridge and freezer. The boys are gone for a basketball tournament this weekend so I won't be cooking much for dd and I.

    Next few days as I am going to have to make this up as I go along...

    Thursday.. Turkey soup for Dh and I with salad. Cheese Pizza and salad for the kids

    Friday... Something quick before they leave. Maybe chicken wraps.

    Saturday.. fend for yourself

    Sunday.. out for most of the day so probably subs.

    Monday.. Spaghetti Pie and veggies

    Tuesday.. Breakfast for dinner

    Wednesday.. Chicken Burgers, Potato, Salad

    Thursday .. Butternut Squash Soup, Salad and Multigrain rolls

    Friday.. DISNEY and no more cooking for 10 days:cool1:
