Meal Plan Monday - January 3
A new meal plan for a new year! I don't know about you, but we ate and ate and ate over the holidays. It is time to get back to more simple and less rich eating around here. I am participating in a Pantry Challenge at Good Cheap Eats this month. I have several goals for this challenge and those will be reflected in my meal plans over the next 5 weeks. This pantry challenge also follows along with my 2011 Kitchen Goals I have set. On with the menu....
Sunday - Leftovers - Turkey Club Sandwiches, Spinach and Artichoke Dip and the last of the Christmas Cookies (almost)
Monday - Leftovers - Tacos, Spanish Rice, Garden Salad and the last of the Christmas Cookies (really this time they will be gone, I swear. I think they are multiplying while we sleep!)
Tuesday - Leftovers - Parmesan Pork Chops, Blackeyed Peas, Collard Greens, Scalloped Potatoes and the last of the New Year's Pound Cake
Wednesday - I have a meeting, kids will eat with Nanny
Thursday - Baked Potato Bar (crockpot), Garden Salad
Friday - I might have to really cook tonight! Homemade Pizza or Spaghetti (kids choice), Garden Salad
One of my goals this year is to plan better for lunches, so I will be including some rough plans here as well -
Options for the week- Pimento Cheese Sandwiches, Bean and Bacon Soup, Turkey Noodle Soup, Antipasto Salad
Everything for both lunches and dinners will come from the freezer and pantry this week.
