Menu Monday

I try to keep our menu kind of fluid.  We work leftovers into future meals as we go along whenever I can and I also try to use them for lunches.  This week we are also working on using up some specific items from the freezer.

B -- cereal with milk
L -- leftover pork chops and rice (I turned this into a simple stir fry.)
S -- leftover roast chicken added to homemade Alfredo sauce and served over pasta

B -- egg wraps (scrambled eggs, flour tortillas, cheese)
L -- leftover chicken Alfredo
S -- tacos (using up 1 cup of dried pintos I had in the canister, 1 lb. of ground beef from the freezer, seasonings, and flour tortillas)

B -- waffles, syrup, bacon (1/2 package from freezer)
L -- leftover taco filling served on baked potatoes
S -- Company over -- Italian chicken and rice casserole, green beans, crescent rolls, and a dessert

B -- muffins
L --  chicken stir fry (new recipe using Ramen noodles, a bag of Aldi brand stir fry veggies, and a small bag of chicken from the freezer)
S -- bacon, eggs, hash browns

B -- cereal or muffins
L -- beef fajitas (using 2 small steaks from the freezer, frozen bell pepper, etc.)
S -- homemade pizza

B -- to each his own
L -- Boca burgers, tater tots, sandwich thins (all from the freezer)
S -- Crockpot hamburger steak, mashed potatoes, green peas, mushroom gravy

Brunch at my sister's house -- Hash brown casserole with bacon
S -- lasagna (I made and froze), garlic bread, and green beans

I'll do various baking throughout the week for snacking on.
