Last week’s menu went okay – it was a struggle – lots of baseball & softball things got in the way. This week isnt a lot better, but I think we can still do it.
I’m going to try my crock pot a bit more this week. I didnt get to make what i had planned for it last week, so will move that forward. I’ve also been reading up on $50 a week menus. This intriugues me, and it’s a bit of a challenge. Maybe I’ll make it a 30 day challenge? My one concern is these menus seem to be starch heavy because starch is cheap. I’m trying to cut back on starch – so maybe my challenge will be a $50 a week healthful menu.
I’m actually alone Friday and Saturday night – everyone is at an archery shoot. I think I’m still going to cook though and maybe freeze the leftovers.
Here’s my plan for this week:
Saturday 6/23 – Low Fat Mexican Fiesta Chicken- This Crockin’ Girls recipe looks good. It says serve w/ Minute Rice or barley. Barley or Quinoa sounds good – brown rice too.
Sunday 6/24 – Grilled Pork Chops & Grilled Zucchini
Monday 6/25 – Stuffed Shells – I think the idea of a meatless Monday sounds good. I’ll put these together and heat on the grill to keep the oven off!
Tuesday 6/26 – Grilled Chicken, Corn on Cob, Pasta Salad
Wednesday 6/27 – PB&J’s, Pasta Salad, Fruit – Maddie has a double header tonight and I’ll pack us a picnic
Thursday 6/28 – Crockpot Bacon Ranch Chicken – Didnt get this one done last week so will try this week.
Friday 6/29 - Beef Fajitas with Cilantro lime brown rice
Saturday 6/30 – Frozen Leftover U-Pick (I’ll freeze meals from leftovers and then everyone can pick what they want.)
