This is the “I’m just back from a conference” edition of the weekly menu plan
Monday: Frozen Pizza
I’m actually arriving home at about 8:30 pm, so I’m keeping it easy for Yankee Bill.
Tuesday: Spaghetti & Meatballs with Steamed Vegetables
I always try to have some cooked frozen homemade meatballs in the freezer. That makes this a super simple meal. Boil water. Add noodles. Nuke meatballs, add jarred sauce, reheat.
Trust me, the first day back after a conference is not a day to do anything complicated.
Wednesday: Chicken and Biscuits, Brussel Sprouts and Beets
I was on a roll with the B’s. No really. Chicken & biscuits are pretty easy, I’ll use the very last of the Brussel Sprouts and a can of beets.
Thursday: Venison Stir Fry with Rice
I’ll stir fry some of our venison with onions (garden fare) and a bag of purchased frozen stir fry veggies, then serve it with rice.
Friday: Homemade Pizza & Salad
Using the Pizza Hut Crust Clone recipe of course.
Saturday: Potato Pancakes
Yeah, Potato Pancakes are not the healthiest meal we eat all year-as a matter of fact unless you count ketchup and applesauce as a veggie it’s pretty much just a whole meal of fried potatoes, but it is a tree decorating tradition in our house, along with a nice glass of Gluhwein for the adults! Kiddos get mulled cider.
Sunday: Baked Chicken with Rice and Broccoli
I’ve got to make up for the nutritional deficiencies of the potato pancakes Baking a whole chicken is delicious, plus it’s usually a very cheap way to buy your chicken. The leftovers are great for future meals and the bones make soup. I love baking a whole chicken. The rice can be going in the rice cooker while the chicken bakes, and frozen broccoli only takes a few minutes in the microwave or steamer.
What’s on your meal plan for the week?
