Menu Plan Monday February 11, 2008

Posted by Mistress B in Goals, Housekeeping, Menu Planning.


We are having a freezer/pantry week this week. My aim is to use up those things that I already have on hand in my freezer and pantry so that my shopping this week is minimal (hopefully only fresh stuff). So bear with me while I go have a looksee and figure out what I can whip up.

Monday – **looking looking**……….  ahhh I found some Chicken Schnitzels! Will add some potato, broccoli, peas and beans.

Tuesday  – usually takeaway night……. will get $3 worth of chips and zap some cocktail frankfurters and some zucchini slice I found in the freezer to go with them, then fruit for desert.

Wednesday – hold on while I go look again…….. did you hold on? What to? lmao   I have no red meat on hand, but I do have a LOT of chicken in my freezer! Will use up some chicken breast fillets and make my Chicken Pasta Bake. I have everything I need for that on hand.

Thursday – can be freezer meals – they can pick from lasagna, spag bol or whatever else may be pre-made in the freezer. I found some bacon for me and I’ll make some pasta from the pantry.

Friday – Fish, potato wedges and salad oh and some more zucchini slice. -I don’t have any fish on hand so will need to buy, but that’s not bad going!

Saturday – sweet and sour marinated chicken drumsticks with chicken rice and veges

Sunday – I do have a chicken I could roast, but I think my poor hubby will be sick of chicken by then so will buy a small beef roast instead. Leftovers can be used for Monday night.

My kids have been having salad filled lavish wraps for lunch or salad boxes lately so I need to make sure I have plenty of salad fixings on hand for that. My baking supplies are pretty good. So it really is mainly just the fresh stuff this week – milk, bread, wraps, eggs, fruit, salad fixings.

Ok, now to write my much leaner shopping list.

(I’m not coming back this time…………………….  You can go now……………. Seriously.:))
