for healthy and budget wise?<br><br>
Can you help me with some ideas? I often get stuck and then want to resort to convenience foods or eating out.<br><br>
I stocked up on black beans and brown rice today. I've got lots of chicken in the freezer plus bacon and roast. Lots of veggies in the freezer. Pasta and sauces. And various other things. I'd really like to use what I've got without buying more.<br><br>
Some ideas for this week (each served with a salad):<br><br>
Black beans and rice (with some of the bacon)<br>
Chicken and rice in mushroom sauce<br>
brocolli and cheese rice casserole with chicken<br>
black bean and bacon burritos<br>
baked potatos with cheese and sour cream, other veggies on the side<br><br>
I obviously need more ideas. And something to do with the roast. I have potatoes but none of the other traditional veggies for a pot roast.

roast: cook in the crock pot and then serve with mashed potatoes<br><br>
cook in the crock pot, serve as open faced sandwiches<br><br><br>
cook with some kind of soy sauce-y/asian kind of marinade and slice and serve with salad

Sautee the frozen veggies with onion and garlic, serve over rice or pasta (use italian or indian herbs to change the flavor and avoid "same old food" burnout).<br><br>

If the roast doesn't have a bone or a lot of fat, then I'd piece it out and make a pasta or rice dish with it and the frozen veggies. Like a casserole. If there's enough then you have the next day's dinner also by making sandwiches or fajitas or something. Or fajitas with the chicken?
