Re: What's for dinner this week?

a roast in the crockpot, stirfry using said roast leftovers, tomalies (if I get time to make a batch also from leftovers), fish, salad, breakfast for supper,

We've been doing 1 breakfast, 1 fish and 1 salad each week for this month and 1 main meat for the entire week. Last week I made 13 meals with an 18lb turkey (yes most of those are in the freezer).

Most of our meals are vegetarian - occasionally some are vegan. I am going to enjoy my corned beef brisket and cabbage for St. Patrick's Day. Being 50% Irish I gotta...right?



Anyway...Here's our menu for this week:

Monday: Enchilada casserole with kale and sweet potatoes
Tuesday: Bean and rice burgers on whole wheat buns with sweet potato fries
Wednesday: Light Asian chicken and cabbage salad
Thursday: Homemade buttermilk pancakes and fresh fruit
Friday: Personal whole wheat english muffin pizzas
Saturday: Veggie Hash Brown Casserole
Sunday: Corned beef brisket and cabbage (slow cooker)
My motivation every week is always healthy and then as thrifty as possible.

Stuffed peppers, Mexican rice
Honey Sesame chicken, rice, and veggies
BLTs, fruit salad, pasta salad

Re: What's for dinner this week?

I almost always menu plan. Went Costco monthly trip and small Wal-Mart trip a few days ago and still haven't done a menu and really don't want to cook this week. Since I am a scratch cooker it has been tough. Sunday was chicken and veggies in the crock with fresh bed and rice custard. Left over rice used in a venison stew Monday with homemade biscuits. Left over chicken from Sunday was thrown with left over rice for stir fry tonight. I made a batch of yogurt yesterday and have made bone broth the last 3 days from Sunday chicken.... No plans tomorrow. Blegh

Re: What's for dinner this week?

Monday: homemade cheese pizza "rolls" made with biscuits (the recipe that's all over pinterest & facebook?? my kids were NOT impressed and each ate one bite of one roll & were done with them) and salads...the kids ended up eating cereal because they didn't like the rolls lol
Tuesday: chili & cornbread
Wednesday: grilled chicken Caesar salads
Thursday: soup with cheese tortellini, chicken, baby spinach, and...something else (some kind of bean maybe? and I think like carrots & green onions?)...I gotta find the recipe again
Friday: pizza & salads (I know I know pizza twice a week, but we always do pizza & movies on Fridays)
