What's on your menu tonight?

It's a very busy week for us and I'll only be cooking a few nights. We'll have leftovers, breakfast for dinner and fend for yourself the remainder of the nights.

Our official menu this week includes the following:

Chicken quesadillas, corn, steamed sugar snap peas

Garlic shrimp on pasta, roasted asparagus

BLT's with turkey bacon, baked sweet potatoes

    We are fighting colds here. So I made a pot of Chicken/Beef noodle soup with celery, carrots, potatoes, stew beef and rice noodles. Base was made with the bones of a rotisserie chicken.

    Last night was leftover Brunswick stew from the freezer from Christmas Eve. Tonight I put beef strips, mushrooms and onions in crock pot to top either mashed potatoes or noodles, green beans and salad. Taco Tuesday. Wednesday- Smoked sausage, onions and peppers with brown rice. Thursday- Beans and ham (for freezer) and spaghetti bake for Reality Center. Friday- Baked chicken legs, veggie and salad- look for ideas how to cook later.

    Tonight is leftover shrimp casserole with a side salad
    Tues - The pancake dinner at the church. I will eat there and bring Momma a meal home
    Wed - Turkey Crunch Casserole with sauteed veggies on the side
    Thurs - Baked Ziti I found in Momma's freezer with side salad
    Fri - Gourmet buffet

    Please keep the dinner ideas coming. I'm about to run out of ideas and I still need to feed us for at least a week, if not two. I never realized how hard it is to feed someone three meals a day for an extended period of time and keep it different day by day. Thanks

    Coupon4me, love your skewer idea for the pork loin. Sounds yummy and I'll have to try it soon.

  • coupon4me Feb 27, 2017

    I know doesn't a pork loin make so much?! I did one yesterday and cut op 3 steaks and then did the rest as soulvalki skewers which were fab! Marinated in soy sauce, lemon juice oregano garlic and salt. Had them with onions peppers tomatoes and brown rice. I also had a naan on the side with one of those previously freebie Bush's hummus kits. It was a delicious dinner!!

    Tonight is breakfast for dinner: Egg, cheese, and turkey sausage biscuits!!!
