I'm trying my hand at the new menu sheets.
Instead of using the side for writing in a grocery list -- I'm stocked -- I am writing in my meal prep tasks.
Sunday -- homemade pizza (make 2 crusts and freeze one for Friday to carry off for weekend -- grate mozzarella)
Monday -- Pressure Cooker beans and rice (soak beans, can 7 pints of beans)
Tuesday -- tacos (take out beef to thaw, cook and package leftovers for Thursday night, grate Colby cheese)
Wednesday -- oven fried pork chops, Pressure Cooker Mac and Cheese, Green beans (take out pork chops, grate cheddar cheese)
Thursday -- leftover tacos (I am picking up 40 lbs of chicken and will spend the day prepping it. My goals are to make ranch chicken strips, BBQ chicken, tetrazzini, and plain chicken for the freezer.)
Friday -- On the road -- pack pizza and make up a hamburger helper mix to take with us
Saturday -- We will be away. Carrying beef from freezer, cream of mushroom soup, and rice. I'll grab a can of peas and we will have a pressure cooker meal. I'm also packing cereal and milk for breakfast, and the hamburger helper will be for lunch.
Updated as of Sunday night:
