Well for the last few weeks I have had no plan and was kinda trying to cook on the fly. UGH....I'm back on the meal plan wagon.

So here it is:

Tonight-Chipotle blackberry BBQ ribs in the Crock pot w/ beans and pasta salad

Tues: Burgers and potato salad

Wed: Grilled chicken caeser salad w/ garlic bread

Thurs: Pork tacos(if there's enough left from tonight) black bean and corn salad

Fri: Pizza? It is 4th of July maybe not

Sat: Cook's choice(probably BBQ)

So I'm back on the wagon, since it's been hot it's so much harder for me to plan, and being really busy the last few weeks has made it really hard, but I'm back at it.

2. Lasagna, veggies, salad, garlic bread
3. leftovers
4. It's my birthday so???

July 12- Beefy Cornbread
July 13- Lasagna
July 14- Tuna and Pasta Cheddar melt
July 15- Shrimp Stir fry
July 16- Brothy Shrimp Scampi..

Veggies: fresh salad, broccoli, corn, carrots or green beans. Maybe some spinach since DD loves it.
Breakfest: cereal, fruit, oatmeal, scrambled eggs
Lunch: Tuna salad sandwich, chicken salad sandwich, ham and cheese sandwich, peanut butter and Jelly (my daughter new fav), leftovers, chicken noodle soup, or salad
We will probably not eat everything in the exact order it is on here but it will stick to the same meals. I just never know what I really want so I pick it out the morning before. Best thing is I have 99% of it in my cupboards so I don't have to go shopping for more than the parishables that I can store a bulk of.

I have been wanting to try one of these. Is this the kind with ground beef browned with onion and mixed with something, then covered in tater tots and topped with cheese?

How do you make it? I've read that they freeze well and I want some things in the freezer for after baby is here. This sounds so deliciously bad for you, yet such a treat once in a while. :

When I use ground beef Ill add onions but lately Ive been using spicy Kielbasa and its really yummy. Basically add a can of Cream of Mushroom, soup can of water and meat to a cassarole dish. Top with Tatertots. Cook in the oven at 350 for around 30 minutes. Add cheese and cook for 5-10 minutes. It freezes pretty well, I usually make two freeze one and eat one. If you want to add some veggies Ive added cut up broccoli and peas and everyone loved it.

How do you make this? Do you use canned salmon. Do you have a recipe or just basic outline of what you do to make this?
post #16 of 47
Sunday---Chicken piccata, orzo with carmelized squash & green salad
Monday---Green salad, Baked Cod with seafood stuffing
Tuesday-- Easy Asian noodles
Thursday--Penne pasta w/chicken tenderloins, green salad
Friday--Pepperoni pizza(kids), Fajita pizza (DH & I)
Sunday--Pecan encrusted salmon, couscous & green salad

I pre-make my salad on Sat/Sunday (after I pick up at the CSA) & put it into a glass bowl-- all argula, swiss chard, romaine, kale, parsley, garlic, ginger, cilantro etc. is cut up quite fine & then mixed together. All veggies are cut up & put into little containers to add to the salad each night. This way we always have the ability to have a salad with dinner but I don't have to make it each night.

ETA Adding the veggies to the green salad mix causes it to spoil rather quickly (a few days) whereas keeping them separated lets the green salad keep for a week. :
