Menu Monday: The Month Long Version with Grocery List

Heather says:

This month long menu is available as a downloadable PDF, as is the shopping list. There are 24 dinners planned, this allots one night each week for CORN or Clean Out Refrigerator Night. No main dishes are repeated and the side dishes are used no more than once per week. This should provide plenty of variety.

In the shopping list, check your own fridge each week before purchasing the suggested amounts for the dairy and produce sections, some may have leftovers carried from the previous week, depending on the amount purchased.

Tell me, Home Eccers, what’s on this week’s menu?

    Last week featured a number of days of manual labor out in the hot sun, so three days I purchased a roasted chicken at the grocery because I didn’t have time or energy to cook. A cooked chicken is only $1 more than a raw one, so it’s an easy and healthy answer. The problem is that I consequently have a lot of leftover chicken scraps. I’ve made stock with the carcasses, but what to do with the meat shreds? Chicken Florentine, King Ranch chicken, chicken tacos, maybe chicken soup…and fill in between with something from the freezer like salmon or pork chops.

    Breakfasts and lunches at my house are usually pretty freeform. Cereal or oatmeal or leftovers in the mornings, leftovers for lunch, assuming we haven’t gone into town; if so, lunch is eaten at an inexpensive homestyle diner. My husband has a great love of sardines and crackers, so if there aren’t any leftovers for lunch, it’s really easy to tell him to “go fish.” ;o)
