Menu and Grocery List Week 3

Heather says:

Another Monday and here we have another fully planned menu. The shopping list is a downloadable PDF file. Simply print the list and cross off the items already on hand. Each meal includes at least two servings of vegetables, sometimes the second serving is included in the main dish. I would love to hear your comments and suggestions. This menu will feed a familly of 4 -6 assuming leftovers are eaten for lunch and the seventh meal.

  1. Lentil casserole, steamed broccoli
  2. Shredded chicken soft tacos, Spanish rice
    This recipe is so basic, it doesn’t deserve it’s own page. All you do is place chicken parts in the crock pot with 1/2 cup of  your favorite salsa. Cook on low for 6 – 8 hours or high for 4. The meat should be falling off the bones. Shred the chicken. Fill flour tortillas with the chicken, plus your favorite taco topings: lettuce, tomatoes, avocado, sour cream, and cheese 
  3. Beef pepper steak rice noodles or lo mein
  4. Fake-n-bake pork chops, green beans, fried green corn
  5. Eggplant parmesan over spaghetti with marinara
  6. Oven fried chicken fingers, potato salad, raw vegetables with dip

Tell me, Home Eccers, what are you having for dinner?

    I so admire you for being able to do the meal planning thing. I do try and usually stick to it rather well but nothing is ever written in stone. I’m ashamed to admit I still occasionally have leftovers to throw out. I need to plan better, right? Thanks for sharing!

    I’ve never mastered the art of menu planning for a week (8 year old who eats like a horse one day and like a saprrow the next!), but what I am doing is going through my fridge on a Monday and planning a few meals around the things that need using quickly before they go off. This helps to reduce our food waste.

    This week that includes chicken with leftover roast potatoes and vegetables
    Smoothies made from 1/2 pineapple and 1/2 tin fruit
    And shepherds pie made from some leftover minced beef.

    The lentil casserole recipe sounds lovely; I love the idea of mixing lentils with oats; it’s going to be really filling with minimal cost. I’ll be trying that one this week.

    Thanks for the inspiration!
