January meal plan

This morning while I was clicking around at 5dollardinner mom’s website I found out about a freezer/pantry challenge for this month. I have to join this to jump start my New Years resolution! It time to take inventory of the freezer and pantry then I’ll update this post. Hop on over to her website if you want to join!

Update: There’s so much in my freezers and pantry that it’s just to overwhelming to take inventory! Now that’s sad. However, now do to financial constraints, my freezer/pantry challenge will continue through March. I know I have plenty of food in there to do it  although I will defiantly have to get creative to come up with some  of the meals. Wish me luck and I’ll be posting the things that I come up with.

Menu Plan Monday
I’ve decided to change my Menu Plan day. Saturday suits me better seeing as I usually do my grocery shopping on Friday. I hope i’m not breaking the rules,is it okay to change? Anyway, here’s a look at the upcoming week.
Weekend Breakfast:
Pancakes and waffles    
 
Weekend Lunch:
Sandwiches, quesadillas or leftovers
 
Dinners:
Saturday: Puffy Ground Beef Tacos
Sunday: Enchiladas
Monday: Leftover Tacos
Tuesday: Leftover enchiladas
Wednesday: Pot Roast
Thursday: Leftover pot roast
Friday: Tostadas
 
I’m going to attempt to post the recipes for this meal plan during the week as I make them. In the event, but more likely when, things change, I’ll let you know what’s getting the boot from my menu. If you see a recipe that you’re absolutely dying for and it doesn’t get posted, just leave me a comment and I’ll be more than happy to give it to you.

mpmpencilI’m back and my menu plan is even on time this week! I do believe that’s a first for me. Anyways, we’ve been eating way to much lately and much to unhealthy for my liking so this week is all about healthy meals. My recipes are coming mostly from Ellie Krieger from Foodnetwork.com. I will be putting my own spin on things though.

Weekend Breakfast:

Pancakes and waffles    

Weekend Lunch:

Salads, sandwiches, or leftovers

Dinners:

Monday: Steak tacos with avocado pico de gallo

Tuesday: Leftover pulled pork

Wednesday: Leftover tacos

Thursday: Chicken Fettuccine with Red Pepper Sauce

Friday: Roasted pork loin with parsley sauce

Saturday: Thai style talipa with coconut curry sauce

Sunday: Crab cakes and tartar sauce

I’m going to attempt to post the recipes for this meal plan during the week as I make them. In the event, but more likely when, things change, I’ll let you know what’s getting the boot from my menu.

No menu plan for me this week. I expect that this will hopefully be the last crazy week at work for a while anyway. So that means I go yet again without a menu plan for the week because, well,  I did no grocery shopping this weekend. Instead I was working and what little free time I had, I spent prepping the garden for fall and winter! I’ll post about that soon, I’m so excited about it. I just hope I didn’t get in over my head. Don’t worry about our food situation though, we won’t be eating out all week. Instead, we will be playing Survivor, food style. Whatever is in the house will be what I use to come up with meals and if you remember from this post, I have plenty of food in my house. My stock pile seems to be getting smaller though. I’ve come to the conclusion that I don’t need to stock pile for a while, at least until I make some more room in the house. It’s just so hard to resist a good deal. At what point do you decide to pass on an opportunity to stock pile?

If I come up with a recipe that I think is fantastic I’ll go ahead and post it. And if not, I’ll be back next week with a Menu Plan.

 Menu Plan Monday!

Now this is sad. I can’t believe that I haven’t been posting any new blogs. My work is super crazy busy right now and I’m hoping to see a light at the end of the tunnel by the end of this month. So until then, please be patient with me. Although, I’m sure that the maybe 3 people who read this blog (all of which are probably related to me) understand and don’t really care. : ) My Hubby will be gone this weekend which will give me the perfect opportunity to work on some new posts. I plan on stepping it up soon, so stay tuned.

Weekend Breakfast:

Pancakes and waffles    

Weekend Lunch:

Sandwiches, quesadillas, or leftovers

Dinners:

Monday: Leftover Chicken and Ribs

Tuesday: Leftover Sloppy Joes

Wednesday: Leftover Chicken and Ribs

Thursday: BBQ Chicken Pizza (I will post this recipe for sure! It’s already in the freezer)

Friday: Shredded Chicken for burritos, tacos and quesadillas

Saturday: Pulled Chicken Sandwiches

Sunday: BBQ Grill Pack

I’m going to attempt to post the recipes for this meal plan during the week as I make them. In the event, but more likely when, things change, I’ll let you know what’s getting the boot from my menu.
