Menu Monday

I didn't make a menu plan for the past week, but rather I'm sticking to what we have on hand to make meals. This is what we ended up with this week:

Monday: On my last grocery pickup order, I ordered ground beef and Ball Park frozen hamburgers. We only received the Ball Park hamburgers. So that is what I made for dinner on Monday. Cheeseburgers, Pasta Salad, Cucumbers

Tuesday: I browned some smoked sausage in a skillet, made some macaroni and cheese to go with it along with a package of California Blend, cauliflower, broccoli, and carrots. I also made another gallon of iced tea as it is hot here. Smoked Sausage, Mac & Cheese, California Blend Vegetables

Wednesday: We had a really late lunch today, so were not all that hungry at dinner time. My dd ended up having a bowl of cereal later that evening and I ended up eating an orange and an apple with peanut butter. Your on your own :)

Thursday: I took some chicken breast out of the freezer to thaw, and still had some of the dressing from Tuesday, so I wanted to use that up. Chicken & Dressing, Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans

Friday: There was one chicken breast left from the chicken thawed on Thursday, so I season it well and grilled it and split it into two portions, which was plenty for dd and me. This was served with some steamed broccoli and a side salad. Grilled Chicken, broccoli, and salad.

Saturday: On Friday I put a bag of 15 Bean Soup beans in a bowl and soaked them overnight. I made them in the Instant Pot on Saturday. I made up some rice to go with it and served along side some mixed vegetables from the freezer.  15 Bean Soup Beans, Rice, Mixed Vegetables. 

Sunday: I had a small can of crab in my pantry, so I made an Impossible Crab Pie for dinner. I served it with mashed potatoes with gravy and corn. Impossible Crab Pie, Mashed Potatoes & Gravy, and Corn. 

Here is what I'm planning for next week, sides to be determined later:

1. Tacos
2. Teriyaki Chicken
3. Salmon Patties, Mashed Potatoes, Green Peas
4. Spaghetti
5. Beans, Green, & Potatoes
6. Grilled Chicken
7. Smoked Sausage

Of course this could change at a moment's notice, but this is where we are right now. :)

    1. Thank you, Sam. Oh, the chili sounds good. I've not tried tika masala before, so don't know.

  4. Good menus, Belinda. How are you "sanitizing" your fruits before eating? DH wants to eat fresh apples.

    1. We sanitize them as soon as they come into the house. Bailey is using a solution of essential oils called Thieves/Robbers. Robbers is a combination of five different 100% pure essential oils: Clove Bud, Cinnamon Bark, Lemon, Rosemary and Eucalyptus.

    2. And I thought you would give me a mixture of vinegar and water. lol.
