Week 67 Menu Plan – Using What We Have

Yeah! I can NOW say … and now entering Week 2 of Hubby’s New Job! 🙂 But I won’t.
It’s taken a little work to re-learn the morning routine and the weekend chore list … I’ve gotten very spoiled in having the bathroom to myself all morning and then the house is cleaned, meals are prepped and so on … time to get back to the OLD ways … which I’m fine with!
I’m late getting this up as I went to see Sheila E last night with a girlfriend … O M G … she’s still beautiful and still kicks butt … her band is awesome too in that they came out after the show and hung around with the lingering crowd. We also met her self proclaimed #1 FAN! He was wearing his vintage 1986 Sheila E tshirt and we convinced him to ask her to sign it … she did 😉 Wouldn’t you be thrilled if you were a musician and someone was wearing one of your concert promotion shirts from 28 years ago! Needless to say, we got home at 11:30 pm and I’m a little tired (not hungover, did well with that!) so I’m thankful I have leftovers!
Here’s what we are planning for the week:
Sunday – Hubby had leftovers and some chicken wings I had made earlier in the day … recipe coming soon, I promise! Wings were picked up at ALDI last week … $8.99 for a 4 lb bag … bought 2
Monday – Chicken Stirfry (will use leftover chicken and veggies from the freezer)

Tuesday – Cubanos (fingers crossed that I will still have pork leftover to make these!) Bread in pantry, ham & cheese in fridge

Wednesday – Chicken Pasta Caesar Salad … will use a prepackaged salad mix (buy one get one free this week at Publix) and leftover (I hope) chicken, otherwise will cook up a breast or two in a skillet. Will make the pasta too as the Boy will eat that!

Thursday – Grown Up Grilled Cheese Sandwiches and tomato soup … all sandwich ingredients in pantry/fridge … not sure about the soup, would like to make it from scratch IF I have time.

Friday – Burgers and fries on the grill … it’s been a while since I’ve cooked fries on the grill (did I ever post that??) I have 2 bags in the freezer, beef in freezer and will need to buy buns.

Saturday – Hubby’s Choice … he’s wanting to tie something up with the butcher twine so I might root around in the freezer for a big hunk of beef for him to play with 😉

I will be stopping at Publix this week as the have boneless, skinless chicken breast buy one get one free … I’m almost out of salad stuff, I need milk and the usual staples … I’m staying away from Fresh Market Tuesday sale as I want to hold out for the grass fed beef they will have on sale for $3.29 (or $3.49? I can’t remember which but it’s a good price) in 2 weeks.

I did clean out the BOTTOM pantry on Saturday morning with the top part to be Sunday’s chore … didn’t get that done on Sunday … but got rid of so many boxes and made it easier for those in the house to grab and go in a hurry 🙂 … yes, we are aiming more for convenience this week which sort of goes against my food beliefs … but I will deal with that later!

Looking forward to linking up with Organized Junkie Menu Plan Monday … go check it out!

  1. Love all your food pics! Sounds like you have the week all planned out. Good for you. I used to do that too when I worked. I now am home so have fallen into the habit of thinking about what to make for dinner each morning. Also fell into a bad habit of shopping a few times a week (or even more sometimes) for food. I think you buy more when you do that.
