Recommended Posts

What do you have planned? I'm supposed to be making my shopping list right now, but I'm having one of those weeks the usual just isn't sounds good.

Tonight is Jambalaya.  I have leftover ham and some leftover sausage to use up

Tomorrow is meatball stew. I have the ground beef defrosting now, and I am going to make the meatballs today, then I am putting the whole thing in the crockpot tomorrow.  I will also be making a bread in the bread machine tomorrow to go with it.  Some sort of crutsy or herb-y white bread.

Tuesday is Taco Tuesday  I am also going to make a spanish rice in my second crock pot but I can't find that recipe.

Wednesday is going to be Italian chicken over noodles, with a salad and galic bread (from my bread machine again.)

Thursday is just some baked fish, rice and broccoli.  I don't even know which kind of fish I have a few in my freezer.  I will probably sprinkle some lemon pepper or dill or something over it.

Friday is pizza night.  Using my regular dough recipe (which I don't have a link for, sorry) and making individual pizzas.

Saturday, DH will be smoking some BBQ ribs and chicken legs, and we will be using up some potatoes in a box thing that I had gotten for free.  

 

I am considering switching out the italian chicken for a veggie lasagne that DD8 found in the kids cookbook we borrowed from the library.  I have the veggies for it and they do need to be used up, plus the ingredients for the italian chicken will all keep since they are canned, frozen or dried.  The fresh veggies though are gonna go bad soon if I don't use them.

Monday - Salmon and broccoli

Tuesday - Burgers and veggies and chips (no dh, so it needs to be simple or I won't do it)

Wednesday - chicken pot pie i made a few weeks ago and froze. The weather is warming up and chicken pot pie season is ending (in the menu book in my head, don't tell dd)

Thursday - Pepper Been Salad and some wholegrain sourdough

Friday - pizza night with salad. I make 4 pizza crusts at a time and freeze them, and a large batch of sauce and freeze that, so most weeks I don't have to make either, or else just one of them.

Saturday - pork tenderloin with frozen vegetables

Tonight we had noodles with gochujang, tofu, and vegetables

Monday- garbanzo beans and fried halloumi with tomato cucumber pomegranate salad

Tuesday- chicken with ferik and leftover cucumber pomegranate salad

Wednesday- fish.  Ds usually makes some kind of lemon sauce and makes sautéed peppers and rice to go with it.

Thursday- khachapuri

I only ever get as far as Thursday because we have a Friday/Saturday weekend.

Tonight - fend for yourself (I roasted a bunch of veggies and had them with leftover chicken and Alfredo sauce)

Monday - chicken Parmesan, Brussels sprouts, probably some type of pasta for the kids

Tuesday - I think I will throw some chicken and salsa in the crockpot for chicken tacos, some type of mexi-cauli rice (anyone have a good recipe?)

Wednesday - picking dh up from the airport, so we will probably stop for chipotle or something on the way home

Thursday - I’m out of town all day for work, so do will likely grill either chicken or steak with  maybe a salad in the side?

Friday - not sure  I really wish I could find a low-carb pizza crust  that I like. It would be fun to have a Friday pizza night.

I'm getting great ideas from this thread! I won't be able to use them until after we move but I'm craving some good dinners! Ours our looking like frozen pizza, frozen rav, frozen waffles with peanut butter, quesadillas, use-up-all-the-food salad, pb and j, grilled cheese. Blah! I'm thinking I'm going to cook up some homemade real food this week to freeze before I pack the kitchen.

In no particular order, with some being lunches:

Steak with garlic-sherry vinaigrette

Sauteed chicken breast with mustard-cream sauce

Salmon of some sort

Flounder of some sort

Meatballs - make a huge batch with hidden veggies and liver, and freeze the excess

Quiche (such a surprising crowd-pleaser!)

Pizza

Pasta and cucumbers as sides for picky kids

Tons of chopped salads. I've been liking chickpea, cucumber, celery, and kalamata olives lately.

We also have lots of veggies sides. I'm not as carnivorous as this list might make it seem. 😉 I just buy as I go, and then prepare whatever sounds good that day.

For the French Dip sandwiches: I slice an onion, put it on the bottom of the crockpot. Put a London Broil roast on top of the onion slices. Pour in a cup or so of beef broth. Cook all day until the roast falls apart. That’s it!!!

I think tacos or nachos are on the list for tonight. Probably burgers one night. One night, DH and I will probably go out for dinner (with babyman), so the kids will probably want pizza. 

 

With the weather warming up, and me emerging from the post-newborn phase, that probably means we will get back to lots of salads. Chicken caesar salad is always a favorite of my husband. We can probably use a round of southwestern jalapeno pepper grilled chicken salad too.

I am changing things up.

Tonight is baked fish.  I never got the meatballs made yesterday and never got anything in the crockpot today.

Wednesday, I have a dentist appointment with extractions, I am probably going to be useless for making anything.  So I am going to attempt to make the meatballs after dinner tonight.  Then put them in the fridge/freezer, and toss the stew together into the crockpot Wednesday morning.  That way when I get back from the dentist, I can be "done."

Yesterday/Monday-- rotisserie chicken from Costco

Tuesday -- chicken pot pie

Wednesday -- Manwich (track meet night, plus DH won't be home, and he dislikes sloppy joes. Easy for me to make ahead and reheat when we walk in the door at 7:30 or later)

Thursday -- corned beef hash with frozen leftover roast from St. Patrick's Day

Friday -- Penne pasta with some fresh basil and mozzarella that I have leftover and need to use up. May add homemade meatballs from my freezer.

Saturday -- chili

Sunday -- eat out with extended family to celebrate spring birthdays
