Menu Plan Monday, week of 12/15

It's going to be bitterly cold here all week, so I was looking for winter fare. Combine that with a good deal on chicken leg quarters (.49/lb), and you have my menu for the week! The kids are likely to turn up their noses at Monday's mystery meal, but hopefully it will be good. This is my first attempt at "freezer soup," where I added all the little bits of broth and meat and veggies and rice that was leftover from meals for the past month or so. My bowl is full, so it's time to see what we've got! It can't be TOO bad, right? Anyone else make freezer soup??

Here's this week's menu plan:

Monday - Freezer soup, steak stuffed bread (last night's leftover swiss steak)

Tuesday - Frito-chili pies, cornbread, salad

Wednesday - Meat loaf, mashed potatoes, corn, biscuits

Thursday - Mushroom-broccoli penne with chicken, breadsticks

Friday - Chicken alfredo pizza on a whole wheat crust

Saturday - Dinner at my Godparents' house for Christmas

Sunday - Chicken noodle soup, homemade sourdough bread

I love your menu posting! The hardest part of cooking for me is the menu. But now I can just pop by your blog and see what I'm making every night!

But wait! You're from KC-- so am I!!-- so we'll just come on over every night for dinner. When should we drop by?

Great menu plan! Let us know how the freezer soup turns out. It sounds like a great way to save money. I've never tried it, but I might get brave enough sometime.

It's just my life....annie said...

I haven't made meatloaf in a while I think I will be adding it to my list for next week.
