Last week I did pretty well at sticking to our menu. I made a couple of adjustments, but nothing major. We had Friday night's pizza on Thursday. I did not cook fajitas because we had leftover chicken, and I shred it for tacos. I didn't end up cooking muffins, but we had other things on hand so all in all I consider the week to be a success.
I just found out my son and his family will be coming home this weekend. I'll be adjusting the cooking to accommodate three more, but the plan is to use things I have on hand.
Breakfasts will be the usual fare. Lunches Monday through Friday will be leftovers. There is fruit to supplement and I'll bake most of our snacks.
Monday -- Pressure cooker mac and cheese
Tuesday -- beans and dirty rice
Wednesday (guests over) -- potato and ham casserole, green beans, cornbread
Thursday -- hamburger patties, tater tots
Friday -- Crockpot beef and gravy, rice, glazed carrots, green peas (son's family should be in)
Saturday -- Breakfast -- sausage biscuits, hash browns, and fruit salad
Supper -- cheese ravioli with sauce, garlic bread, broccoli
Sunday -- brunch at my sister's house and I'll make a ham quiche and some hash browns to carry
