I didn't get a menu done for the past week and it has been hard to think up something I want to eat, and feel like cooking. I tend to procrastinate deciding until I've only got an hour or so until dinner and then my choices are pretty limited. Planning a menu make eating and cooking a lot more fun and allows me to use my Bountiful Basket produce more effectively.
Today on Facebook I asked for help with menu ideas and got a bunch of great ones! One of the best parts of this menu, is that I have everything on hand! LOVE having a well stocked pantry!
This is what we'll be enjoying the next week or so:
Wednesday - Breaded steelhead with lemon, broccoli, Oven Fries, and strawberries with whipped cream
Thursday - Spaghetti and Meatballs, tossed green salad, home made French Bread
Friday - Chicken Enchiladas (I have a pan in the freezer to use up), Spanish Rice, Fruit Salad
Saturday - Grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup, apple slices
Sunday - Boiled Beef, cauliflower & carrots, baked potatoes, tossed green salad
Monday - Steak on the grill (I hope), Buttery Garlic Potatoes, corn, red Jello w/ raspberries, rolls or heart shaped biscuits.
Tuesday - White Bean Chili , left over rolls or biscuits
Wednesday - Sloppy Joes, Oven Fries, sliced oranges
Thursday - Stracciatella , Toasted french bread, fruit salad
Friday - Homemade Pizza w/ pepperoni, red pepper, olives, onion, and a tossed green salad.
The Saturday at the end of this menu I'll be getting a Bountiful Basket order again and once I see what veggies and fruits I get that week, I'll do the menu for the next 2 weeks. :) A possibility for that week will be Chicken Fried Steak - if I can find that package of cubed steak I have in the freezer. THANK YOU to all those who made suggestions! My family will be happy to have a few new things for dinner and I will be happy to have it all planned out so I can cook without thinking too much!
