Monday Menu Plan

I need to use some chicken stock up this week and I'll be getting 6 new freezer meals tonight so I need to be mindful of my freezer space, too. Here's the plan:

Monday - Italian Sausage soup, salad, bread - sausage, beans, chicken stock, bread from freezer
Tuesday - Pork Chops, veggies, rice (didn't end up making this last week)
Wednesday - Basalmic Chicken, potatoes, salad - freezer meal
Thursday - Lasagna, salad, garlic bread - freezer meal & bread from freezer
Friday - Chicken in sour cream sauce over rice, veggies - chicken and chicken stock from freezer
Saturday - Beefy green chili enchilada casserole - freezer meal
Sunday - Chicken Cordon Bleu - freezer meal

Lunches are tricky still because I am out of so many staples
Monday - leftover taco soup
Tuesday - hot dogs (packed lunch)
Wednesday - grilled cheese
Thursday - pb&j (packed lunch)
Friday - leftovers
Saturday - pancakes
Sunday - TBD

Menu planning has made such a big difference in the time I spend cooking & shopping. Very rarely do I have last minute trips to the store or get stressed about what to make. I just follow the plan and save myself time and worry. Give it a try!
