Menu Plan Monday - 11/01/10



It's going to be a COLD week here in southwestern Ohio, so the name of the game this week is warm, comfort foods! I would also like not to do any grocery shopping this week, after spending $60 over budget last week. So I'm working with what's in the freezer, plus cooking meals large enough to use leftovers in another form the next night.

MONDAY
with turnip, carrots, onions, green beans

TUESDAY
Beef burritos
Tomato Soup
(Burritos made from leftover pot roast, plus salsa, beans, corn in tortilla wraps)

WEDNESDAY
Taco Soup
(made from Tuesday's leftovers)

THURSDAY
Roast whole chicken
Rice, mixed veggies, gravy

FRIDAY
Chicken Stew
served over rice
Biscuits
(made from Thursday's leftovers)

SATURDAY
Breakfast for dinner
Cheese omelettes, bacon, toast

SUNDAY
Dinner Out

Breakfasts
Oatmeal, toast or sausage/egg roll-ups to go

Lunches (packed for my husband)
Leftover soup with PB&J or Tuna salad
Egg salad with chips, yogurt
Chicken salad on lettuce
Some of my menues may look familiar from last week! It seems that last week nothing went as planned, so these meal ingredients are still available.
