Menu Plan

We are headed out of town for a week on April 2nd so I am planning meals through that date.

Last week we ended up having more leftovers than I planned so the broccoli quiche got carried over and we ate it last night. I am still trying to use the contents of the freezer and pantry primarily & am looking forward to defrosting our garage freezer in sometime in April. Today the top shelf is completely frosted over and the next shelf is getting a nice start. It's an old freezer so we have to be nice to it and defrost at least once a year. I am hoping I might even be able to leave it unplugged for a month or two to save the electricity. We'll see.

Starting today here's the plan:
Friday - Russian Chicken in the crockpot - company for dinner
Saturday - Ham & potatoes - company for dinner
Sunday - Leftovers
Monday - Cheesy Chicken Casserole
Tuesday - Tamale Pie (freezer meal)
Wednesday - Chicken Barley Soup (freezer meal)
Thursday - Lasagna (freezer meal)
Friday to Friday - Out of town with lots of leftovers for DH

Lunch out at Applebees
Grilled Cheese
Tuna Melt
Macaroni & Cheese (homemade)
PB & J
Chicken Nuggets
Lunch on road

I have lots of bread in the freezer so that's why we're having sandwiches 3 times this week. I also have to make my freezer meals this week for the swap I do each month. On Monday I'll likely make 8 pans of homemade macaroni & cheese pie with ham & parmesan. We all love this at our house, and I'm hoping the other families in the swap enjoy it, too.
