One of my New Year’s Goals is to cook more for my family. In order to do this, I need to get back into menu planning! The first thing I do is check my freezer and pantry. Right now my freezer is a little overstocked- and that is just my inside freezer!
Even though Kroger is having a Frozen Food Mega Event this week, I have no need to participate.
Since I work full time, I cook more over the weekend. On Saturday and Sunday I cook large portions of meat such as a pot roast, whole chicken or pork loin. I use the leftover meat to make meals throughout the week.
My Dinner Plan:
Monday – Beef Stroganoff and Cooked Carrots (Use leftover roast from Saturday night)
Wednesday – Shrimp Alfredo & Broccoli
Thursday – Leftovers
Friday – Ham & Scalloped Potatoes (Leftover ham in freezer)
Saturday – Pork Loin and Zucchini Casserole
Sunday - Quiche (Pie crust in freezer and we have an abundance of eggs from our chickens.
One thing that I keep in mind is flexibility. We are a busy family and schedules change. Sometimes I change around what night we eat which meal but at least I have a plan to start with.
How about you, do you have a menu plan this week?
