I didn't share my plan last week, and I guess that's a good thing because we ate so much leftovers last week that I didn't end up cooking as much as I thought I would. So my plan this week is pretty much based on the foods I didn't get the chance to cook last week. Great for my grocery bill that's for sure!
Again, I don't assign meals to days, I pretty much just decide that morning what I'm going to make out of the following options:
Zuppa Toscana Soup & Irish Soda Bread - I froze my leftover bread from St. Patty's day, so I figure we'll pull that out and use it. The soup is just like the one served at Olive Garden, you should really make some.
Burritos - I'll make mine with seasoned ground beef. Serve it up with tomatoes, cilantro, green onions and sour cream. This is Hubs' favorite, he's been asking for it for a while so here it is!
Chicken Pie with Cornmeal Crust - Great gluten-free recipe! Found it on parenting.com. I'll share it here if it turns out good.
Ranch Chicken with Potato Salad & Green Beans - This will be next week's Mystery Spice recipe, so stay tuned!
Chicken with Asian Marinade with Rice & Salad - I plan to make a huge batch of this chicken and marinade for my freezer.
So that's 5 meals. Generally that's all I need for a week because depending on how much leftovers we have we'll need a couple days of unscheduled meals to eat what I make. And if it's so good that we scarf it all down and don't eat leftovers? Well, that's unlikely, but there's always take out for those rare occasions. :)
