    Well, here I am, fwiw. icon_rolleyes.gif Hey, hi, ho, and all! It's a bit of a crazy week, so I have some quick-fixers in there. Here's my menu PLAN for the upcoming week:

    Sunday: BBQ sliced leftover pork (1.88/#) sandwiches, fries (sale w/coupon), slaw, pork and beans (.19).

    Monday: Jumbo hot dogs (.99) on buns, tortilla chips (1.10), carrot sticks.

    Tuesday: Election Day is usually soup and biscuits. This year soup will be a lovely melange of vegetables, roasted and pureed to creamy perfection. So basically, leftovers made into creamy soup. Maybe with a little ham? Cheese on the biscuits.

    Wednesday: Boneless, skinless chicken breasts (free), peas and carrots (.85), pasta with garlic and herbs.

    Thursday: Baked crispy pollock (1.88/#), homemade mac and cheese, green salads.

    Friday: Cheesy Ham and Potato Casserole (cheap!) from the freezer, salads.

    Saturday: Boneless turkey breast (Aldi) stuffed w/spinach and cheese, rice, squash. There will be leftovers.

    I'm not keeping track of every little cost in my meals these days, but I'm guessing these meals for four will cost me less than $25.00 total. What I am doing is making sure I stay within my food budget. We had a few weeks of eating out, couple pizza nights per week, and such. I've done a full freezer inventory, and my pantries overfloweth, which at this point is a very good thing. This state of full-on pantry cooking and belt-tightening has arrived early this year; it's usually here in January.


    Gday and thanks for sharing! It is a good reminder to all...and there are so many creative ways in using leftovers in the pantry and freezer...minimizing and creating BIG savings in the budget each and ever meal and every week too!

    Well done!

    WHOO HOO As always enjoy seeing what other people make too!

    Wow! Got some great new recipes to try. Here's my menu. Absolutely CRAZY week ahead...that's what happens when you have a 12 DD who's a jock! She is also responsible for this weeks menu! I let her pick the dinners this week.

    Sunday: Grilled hangar steak marinated in Alton Brown Marinade for Beef. DH discovered that our Costco now carries this family favorite cut of beef. Bought a huge package of it recently, made up a big batch of marinade and put three meals worth of steak in the freezer! Served with mashed potatoes and Mustard and Mayonnaise Glazed Asparagus (Grilled) using zucchini instead of asparagus.

    Monday (tonight): DD has basketball practice from 4-6. Spanikopita (spinach, sauteed onion, garlic and spices, feta and a little sour cream). Carrots and bell pepper with homemade (sorta...use Penzeys buttermilk ranch spice mix) ranch dressing.

    Tuesday: First basketball game of the season! DD (at almost 5' is the starting shooting guard) and Tae Kwon Do for younger DD. Chicken Tortilla Soup II turned veggie by simply leaving out the chicken and adding a can of pinto beans and upping the carrots, onion and celery served with a green salad.

    Wednesday: Soccer practice from 4-6 and TKD for DD#2. Homemade bread and a grilled chicken caesar salad. I use a salad dressing based on one from Michael Chiarello.

    Thursday: Basketball game at 3:45 and a soccer game at 7!!! DD#1 is going to be hungry and tired. Plus DH is having some minor surgery so it's got to be easy. Pasta with a red sauce using San Marzano tomatoes, onion, anchovies and some hot italian sausage, another green salad. I'll make the sauce early and let it cook, then quick cool so I only need to reheat and boil pasta at dinner time.

    Friday: Soccer practice 4-6 and TKD 6:15-7:30. Usually eat out or take 'n' bake pizza...a local place makes a great one with ranch sauce, bacon, chicken, spinach and red onion.

    Saturday: I work so it's up to DH. Luckily only one soccer game and it's local.

    Sunday: I'll figure it out in the morning, !
    Wow! You are crazy busy!!! I got anxiety just reading your schedule! icon_cool.gif


    Ditto but know Elton's marinade is GREAT too!

    Thanks for sharing your schedule and what you make too! Admire your energy too!

    WHOO HOO!
