Hey, before you get all into the menu, have you entered the giveaway for Choffy brewing chocolate?
This week I start scoring standardized test essays for a testing company. That is what I'll be doing with virtually all of my spare time, so our meals will be simpler, or else they will be things I made ahead for the freezer. We continue to plan using items we have on hand in the pantry and/or the freezer, with reduced spending (average of just under $20 a week) for fresh items and a few sale items. Here's what I have in mind:
cereal with milk, fruit
yogurt with homemade granola and fruit
egg salad on toast, orange slices
leftovers from supper
peanut butter on wheat, celery sticks, applesauce
snack basket items (containers of trail mix, pretzels, cheese crackers, dried fruit, chex mix, etc.)
fresh fruit or applesauce
homemade lasagna, steamed broccoli, foccacia, grapes
chili from the freezer with rice, oranges
takeout pizza (free w/voucher) garden salad, pudding
smoked turkey, stuffing, steamed carrots, jello
taco salads, apples
scrambled eggs w/vegetables & cheese, sliced spam, toast, oranges
tuna sandwiches, pretzels, pickle & veggie tray, apples
These meals should go together fairly quickly. I will get to try out the new-to-me rice cooker/vegetable steamer, and none of these meals require a lot of prep or attention.
What's on the menu at your home this week?
