Menu Plan Monday ~ October 10, 2011

Visit for more great menu ideas

This week is all about using groceries that are about to expire. I hate throwing food away and sometimes it happens, but it’s not going to happen this week!!!

Jaid starts guitar lessons at my college on Monday so Mondays will be ‘slacker’ suppers. Easy, peasy, no effort meals. We’ll both be at class until 8ish which means we’ll either have to eat supper at 4:30 or 9:00. Maybe we’ll just have a nice, healthy snack at both of those times 🙂

Supper: YOYO

Tuesday – Using ‘soon to expire’ cream cheese, bacon, lettuce and tomatoes
Supper: Homemade creamy mac ‘n cheese, BLTs, feta-topped tomato slices

Wednesday – Using lettuce and BBQ beef
Supper: BBQ’d beef sandwiches, salad and leftover mac ‘n cheese

Thursday – Using sausage and polenta, both about to expire
Supper: Sausage and peppers over polenta

Supper: Jaiden was invited to a Homecoming dance and I work so we’re both on our own

Supper: YOYO

Sunday – Using onion dip and corn on the cob
Supper: Steak, experimenting with onion dip and mashed potatoes, corn on the cob. Last week’s roast was a bust since it didn’t fit in my crockpot and I had no clue how else to make it. I did some research and roasted it in the oven at a slow temp but it came out hard as a rock. I’m taking a break from roast this week.
