Menu, Grocery List, Recipes Year 2 Week 47

Do you feel back in the swing of things with the new school year yet?  I’m not sure I’ve got a handle on it.

I keep thinking if I had a blog on organizing, maybe I’d have my act together.  I did purchase a new calendar and I’m determined to actually use it.  In the past, I’ve had a bad habit of keeping our family calendar in my head.  You know how well that would work out!

I’ve made Sunday nights my planning night, which I need to adjust because Saturday is my grocery day and meals need to be planned for the shopping trip.

I do have a menu and grocery list all ready for you though.  As always, you get 6 dinners and 1 dessert.  Serving suggestions are included in bold on the recipes and in curly brackets {} on the grocery list.

Here’s what’s on the menu this week:

Tropical Tilapia with Pineapple Salsa and Coconut Rice, steamed broccoli
Chicken Shwarma in the Slow Cooker, salad
Southwestern Steak and Cornbread Dressing in the Slow Cooker, corn, salad
Broccoli and Tomato Tortellini Salad, warm bread
Swiss and Bacon Quiche, steamed veggie, salad
Linda’s BBQ Ham Sandwiches, Oven Fried Portatoes, carrot sticks
Coconut No Bake Cookies

Menu, Grocery List, Recipes – Year 2, Week 14

Did everyone get back into the swing of things last week?  Classes, carpooling, basketball, music lessons…  It was good to get back into a routine.  We tend to flounder and flop if we have too much time off.

Don’t get me wrong.  We enjoyed all the flopping we did around here over Christmas break.  Somewhere in there we got completely addicted to watching 24.  I never saw this show when it was on TV, but we’ve been watching it on Netflix instant watch.  I swear, my oldest son and I saw one of the bad guys in Walmart the other day.

Back to reality… I’ve got lots of good stuff on the menu this week.  There are two slow cooker recipes and a meal you can make in about 15 minutes.

The Western Omelette Casserole calls for 1/2 each of a green and red pepper.  You can use the extras in salad  or on the French Bread Pizza.

The post for the Lemon Pepper Tilapia with Veggies calls for fixing it on the grill.  If you need to shovel to even get to your grill, you can fix it in the oven instead.  I’ve included the instructions for that on the printable recipe.

Here’s what’s on the menu this week:

1.  BBQ Chicken Sandwiches in the Slow Cooker, Quick Cole Slaw

2.  Western Omelette Casserole, fresh fruit

3.  French Bread Pizza, salad

4.  Slow Cooker Chicken and Gravy over Brown Rice, steamed veggie

5.  Bean and Cheese Enchiladas, salad, tortilla chips and salsa

6.  Lemon Pepper Tilapia with Veggies, salad, baked potatoes

7.  Gooey Turtle Bars

This week’s menu is designed to stock your freezer with dinners.  You don’t have to use it like that.  You can cook and eat that night if you want.

But you may want to take this opportunity to stash away a few meals in the freezer.  Tomorrow, I’ll have more tips for cooking and freezing a lot of meals at once, so you’ll want to check that out.

Here are the meals that are on the menu, along with a few notes about each:

I am thankful for laptop computers, Netflix instant watch, scheduled posts for blogging and modern medicine.  I had surgery last Wednesday – don’t worry, I’m fine.  It’s going to take me a while to bounce back to my old self though.

Even though I won’t be doing much cooking for a while, I still have quite a few recipes ready to share with you.  And, of course there’s a menu and grocery list for this week too.

One of the meals on the menu is Roast Chicken with Garlic and Wine.  You can save yourself some time by buying and cooking 2 chickens instead of just one.  Freeze the extra meat to use in other dishes later in the week.

You might also want to buy a bigger pack of hamburger than what is on the grocery list.  Go ahead and brown it all up, freezing what you don’t need.  That will give you a head start on another meal.

It’s definitely early January.  Cold, snow, gray.  Sledding, hot cocoa, fires in the fireplace.

Our family celebrated a birthday and anniversary over the weekend.  It was a good weekend.

The menu has plenty of comfort food to keep you warm this week.  As always, you get 6 dinners and 1 dessert.  Serving suggestions are included on the recipes in bold and on the grocery list in curly brackets {}.

weeklymenusLast week seemed to just fly by.  I’ve been doing a lot of cooking and have moved into holiday baking as well.

I’ve got lots of new recipes to share with you that I’ve already made, and there are more recipes that I’m planning to cook up this week.

Your menu this week has several slow cooker meals, some comfort food and breakfast for dinner one night.

On a completely unrelated note – I’ve got to start Christmas shopping!  How are you doing with yours?  Do you have it all done, or are you like me and still need to get started?

weeklymenusAre you all on a sugar high from Halloween candy?  We not only have tons of candy, but a birthday cake to eat up too.

The sad thing is, we won’t have any trouble polishing off all of the candy and cake.  The kids are in heaven.  I think I need to pull out all the Reece’s cups and hide them for myself ;-)

weeklymenusDon’t you wish everything on your to-do list could be as easy as click-print-shop?

At least the menu planning and grocery list making are taken care of when you use my menu plans.  I also try to keep the cooking simple.  I believe that family dinners are important, but families have lots of other things going on during the week too.  Being able to put a delicious meal on the table quickly maximizes the time you can spend together.

The menu gives you 6 dinners and 1 dessert.  There are 2 slow cooker meals and you’ll double your effort one night by making 2 meatloaves – 1 for dinner and 1 for the freezer.

Serving suggestions are included on the recipes and in curly brackets {} on the grocery list.

weeklymenusThis week’s menu includes some of my favorite foods.

Corn Chowder is a wonderful meal for the cooler weather.  I adapted it from a Frugal Gourmet recipe I found many years ago.

I could eat my weight in Winter Fruit Salad with Lemon Poppy Seed Dressing and not feel an ounce of guilt about doing so, since it is salad.

Nachos, Bowtie Festival, Mocha Chocolate Chip Cookies…yum!

A few notes about the menu and grocery list this week:

  • It’s all printable. Each recipe prints on its own page so you can file it in your recipe organizer.
  • The menu includes 6 dinners and 1 dessert.
  • One slow cooker meal is included for a busy day.
  • Serving suggestions are listed on the recipes and those that are in bold are also included on the grocery list in curly brackets {}.

Fill Your Freezer – Menu, Grocery List, Recipes – Week 8

Cook once, eat twice (or three times).  Sound good? 

This does not require a gigantic, all-day cooking event that will leave you exhausted.  Rather, you’re going to maximize your cooking time all week.  At the end of the week your freezer will be full of all kinds of goodies.  You’ll be able to feed your family on busy nights, with minimum effort.

Here’s what you’ll be making:

Taco Soup – Depending on your family size, you’ll eat one night and freeze enough for 1 or 2 more meals.

Chicken and Dressing Casserole – You’ll cook enough chicken to put some in the freezer for another meal.

Beef Stew - Enough for dinner, plus another meal in the freezer

Virus Killing Soup – A great tasting soup that will help you fight off colds and flu.  You’ll be prepared for the season with this stocked in the freezer.

Chicken Enchiladas – You’ll cook enough chicken to put some in the freezer for another meal.

Stuffed Shells – Eat tonight and freeze the extra.

Monster Cookies – Freeze them in ziplock bags for an easy treat.

Helpful cooking tips:

  1. Virus Killing Soup is the most time consuming recipe on the menu, but it is worth the effort. Plan it for a day when you’ll be home and have time to cook. 
  2. Extra Stuffed Shells can be frozen in ziplock bags before you put sauce on them.  Assemble the frozen shells just as you would fresh and give them a longer baking time.
  3. For both the Chicken Enchiladas and the Chicken and Dressing Casserole, you will cook extra chicken.  The grocery list includes 2 bags of frozen chicken breasts.  Put the chicken in a casserole dish, add a little water and cover tightly with foil.  Bake at 350 degrees for about 1 1/2 hours.  Pull the cooked chicken apart with two forks.  Freeze in ziplock bags in 2 or 3 cup quantities.  You can do both bags of chicken on the same night or do one bag at a time.  Having the frozen chicken in the freezer cuts down on cooking time for later recipes.  You can assemble a casserole or soup in a flash, once the chicken is cooked.

P.S.  I’ve been trying not to repeat the recipes in the menus each week, but daggone it, I just realized that Chicken Enchiladas is also included in the week 5 menu.  I knew Stuffed Shells was in a previous menu, but it’s such a great recipe to freeze I wanted to include it.  Sorry for not paying better attention.  Chicken Enchiladas just snuck itself in.  At least it tastes good!
