What We've been eating

Robyn has been consulting with a food lady. One great suggestion I am going to put into place is menuing. Ness has menu's. I remember the blackboard. We never have. Every day is the question..What's for dinner?

You can but stuff on SALE, stock up and save on groceries rather than buying every day...Much easier to do now that the kids are older.

Rob's lady says to write down all the types of meat, then simply put THAT on the calendar to start with.
Chicken, beef, Pork, pasta, Turkey, Ham, Then..What about Casseroles? What about Soups?

Chicken: Baked Chicken, Chicken legs, Chicken with rice, Chicken Strips, Chicken Kievs

Beef: Burgers, Burritos, Chuck Roast, Barbeque Beef, Steaks, Meatloaf, Meatballs,


Ham: I don't think I've ever baked a whole ham. I use Turkey Ham for Sandwiches while on road trips. We use sliced ham for lunches. But a whole ham? Wierd..just haven't done it.

SOUP: Turkey Noodle, White Bean Chicken Chili, Tomato, Don Potato, Regular Chili

Pasta: Spaghetti, Alfredo, Manicotti, Lasagna, Mac and Cheese,

Salads: Big Salad, Taco Salad, Coleslaw

Potatoes: Baked, Scalloped, Mashed, Cut up-Microwaved then baked, French Fries, Tater Tots, twice baked,

Pizza: Regular, English Muffin Pizzas, Chicken W/Peanut Sauce, Black Bean Pizza,

Any other ideas?

chicken with peanut sauce? recipe PLEASE!

I like to buy ham steaks rather than a whole ham. Fry em up, or bake them with some crushed pineapple.

I tend to put in a soup or casserole in the same week as an expensive meal like salmon or the like. It balances out the expense.

Spanish rice is a cheap and easy. Don't forget "Hungry Jack" (breakfast for supper with sausage and bacon, french toast and oj!)
And don't forget to buy a big ol' pile of flour tortillas for steak wraps, chicken fajitas, hungry....

sloppy joes
