Has it only been a week since I made the last menu plan? It feels like forever ago. I did make a few things from the plan, but I was also blessed by someone making us a surprise meal.
Monday – chicken pot pie using the frozen cooked chicken from when I made chicken soup a few weeks ago.
Tuesday – Crockpot beef over rice. I think I’ve had this on the menu for three weeks, and I still haven’t actually made it. I’m also going to cook extra rice and freeze it to use in chicken fried rice at a future time.
Wednesday – Spaghetti using the already cooked ground beef – NEW TIP: I cooked up some more ground beef to freeze last week and tried a new trick. The last two times I have put the ground beef in one big freezer bag, I have had a terrible time breaking it up to use in recipes. I don’t remember this being the case in the past, but it was a big problem these two times. So, when I cooked some last week, I let it cool completely and then froze it spread out on two cookie sheets. Then, once it was frozen, I broke it up and put it into the gallon size freezer bags. This way, I can use smaller amounts easily.
Thursday – Crockpot chicken soft tacos – Cook chicken in the crockpot on low for about 5 hours, with a can of rotel. Serve with flour tortillas, lettuce, cheese and sour cream.
Friday – eat out!
Saturday – homemade pizza
Sunday – leftovers
