What’s on the menu?

Wow! What an insane week! We had a lot of plumbing issues, I mean no running potties for 1 1/2 days. For a SAHM with 2 little ones, that is a LONG time! Because of extra expense with the plumbing, I decided to cook out of the freezer. This is when freezer cooking is such a blessing! If you haven’t started freezer meals, now’s the time.

It’s easy to get started, here are a few tips…..

  • If you know your family will not eat an entire recipe, split it into 2 dishes. Eat one and freeze the other. This is the one I do since Rooster Brown is not keen on eating leftovers.
  • Pick one or 2 recipes a week to double. In no time you will have a months worth of meals!
  • Start simple with breads or muffins. I always have muffins in the freezer for quick, out the door breakfasts.

So…now, here’s what we are eating this week!

Breakfast

  • Lemon cake (hey…It’s no worse than a fried donut right??)
  • Cinnamon Rolls – from the freezer
  • Pancakes
  • Cheese Eggs x 3

Lunch

  • Turkey Roll ups
  • Homemade Pizza
  • PB & J on rice cakes
  • Hot Dogs
  • Mac & Cheese
  • Lunch Out
  • Cheese Quesadillas

Dinner

Snacks

  • Goldfish
  • Popcorn
  • Home made Ice Cream Sandwiches

Freezer

  • Ice Cream Sandwiches

Breadmaker

  • Honey Wheat Bread

I didn’t really have anything to buy at the store this week except fresh fruits and veggies, milk, eggs, etc. I only spent $60 filling in the gaps, leaving us with $40 to help with the plumbing!

How did you do this week?

Happy eating!
