Weekly Menu with Printable Shopping List Week 3

Heather says:

And we’re back. With holidays and off kilter schedules, I assumed many people would have no need for a menu last week. We’re back with another menu that utilizes winter vegetables as often as possible. I’m working as fast as I can to incorporate a larger variety of side dishes that utilize what is in season. It’s a process. At least I can keep the side dishes varied within each week. I’m working on not repeating a side dish in a two week stretch, but that might take another week or two to complete.

Feel free to rearrange the menu to best fit your schedule. And look, there’s one night off to get rid of leftovers or to fill up with sandwiches, a quick breakfast dinner or something fun, like a night out. Whatever floats your budget or boat.

Baked Potato Soup

What are you having this week? Are you making anything special for New Years?

Baked Potato Soup, Spinach Salad

Meatloaf, Rice and Peas, Braised Rutabaga

Clean Out Refrigerator Night

Chicken Marsala, Roasted Broccoli

Fisherman’s Pie, Sauteed Cabbage

Hoppin’ John, Collard Greens, Cornbread

Marinated Balsamic Chicken, Rice, Baked Sweet Potatoes

Click for the printable shopping list for this entire menu can be found at SayMmm.com. You will need to edit in the sweet potatoes, I don’t have a recipe posted. It’s simple, scrub, prick with a fork, and bake at 400°F for about an hour, until they give when gently squeezed. (Don’t squeeze hard, you’ll burn your hand)

    We're going to fly out this week to visit family in CO and will ring in the New Year with them. After hosting a house-full of family for Christmas, we're on a strict Leftovers Only diet. Luckily I cooked up such a storm over the weekend that there's a nice selection of soups, veggies, and side dishes to choose from. (I told my husband that if he even thought about going to the grocery store, I was going to karate chop him. Gently, of course.)

    I'm going to try this Collard Green's recipe. I think my hubby will really like it.
