I thought I posted my meal plan for this week but I'm not seeing it. Hmmm.
Anyway, here it is, in no particular order.... Planning ahead sure makes for more frugal cuisine!
Breakfasts are any assortment of muffins, eggs, sausage, waffles, org. raisin bran cereal w/ org. milk (lazy day back up), fruit, smoothies etc
Lunch is usually leftovers and salad. Although lately I've been trying to have our main meal at midday (dh comes home for lunch) so lunch may be dinner and dinner may be leftovers w/ salad.
Dinners (the only thing I really "plan" so far)Baked chicken
(SAVE THE BONES!!!)
-mushroom stuffing (use up those stale bread bits, add shredded carrot, diced celery, onion, poultry seasoning, 3 or 4 mushrooms, diced)
-thyme steamed & buttered carrot sticks and asparagus with citrus dressing (lemon juice, zest, pinch of sucanat, ground pepper) - this is so incredibly easy and tasty!Creamy Fusilli with Mushroom & Chicken
- use the rest of the chicken from the baked chicken on previous day
-steamed green beans, possibly with a dilly yogurt sauce to dip inChicken soup
- pressure cook baked chicken bones (preferably day I make the mushroom/chix dish, then refrigerate or freeze into ice cubes), add celery, greens, carrots, maybe a few diced potatoes or 1/2 cup barley, salt, poultry seasoning, bay leaf)
-homemade bread or rolls, whatever sounds good that day
-baby greens saladCoconut shrimp with red curry sauce
- yeah, yeah, I know shrimp isn't the healthiest thing on the planet but what am I supposed to do with these darn cravings???
-steamed rice (half and half jasmine white and brown)
-steamed broccoli or snow peasCrab corn chowder
- I had some fake stuff frozen (another craving from a few months ago) that I wanted to use up so I'll use it here
- Cornbread muffins
-maybe some salad, I don't know... whatever strikes me as a good side when I make it!Black bean soup
-southwestern monte cristo sandwichesAsian stir fry with bok choy &
-sliced fruit later for dessert
