Menu Plan Monday
I've been MIA for a few weeks as we've taken turns being sick - several times. We are finally back to normal - I think. Here's the plan for suppers for this week. I'm so excited about this menu because it is using things we already have in our pantry or freezer. We've been building our pantry stockpile for a while now (maybe 6 months) and finally, our shopping seems to be replenishing our pantry and not so much for items needed to make specific meals. Its so comforting to me to know that we could avoid shopping all together (if we needed or wanted to) and still have varied and healthful meals.
Monday - baked chicken (freezer), pan roasted zucchini and summer squash with peppers (freezer), salad (garden!), rolls (homemade).
Tuesday - Baked stuffed shells (freezer) with white sauce (homemade) and red sauce (canned), green beans (freezer), bread sticks (homemade)
Wednesday - Roast (freezer), rice (pantry), broccoli (garden) and salad (garden)
Thursday - BBQ roast sandwiches (hamburger buns are in the freezer), carrot sticks (refrigerator)
Friday - leftovers
Also I'm going to make broccoli cheese soup (garden broccoli, homemade white sauce, cheese in freezer) and try to replicate fire roasted tortilla soup from Jason's Deli. I'll post the recipe if I figure it out. We love soup here and the boys will often have it as a snack, so its nice to have some around.
