Menu Plan 7/2

I'm trying to jump right back into the swing of things now that I'm back home.  Last night, I took some cooked and shredded chicken out of my freezer and made 4 chicken pot pies (and one more meal worth of filling that I didn't have a pie shell for.  We ate one last night and the rest are in the freezer  (one will be going to a friend from church who had a baby while we were out of town).

I've got my freezer pretty well stocked with meat that I haven't had a chance to cook yet, so I plan on taking full advantage of having my husband off for several weeks and get my freezer stocked with cooked things before the new school year arrives.

This week, we are grilling up a bunch of meat to freeze cooked.  (Thanks for the idea, Cricket!)  This is going to not only save on time, but also charcoal.  It is such a hassle to heat up the grill and uses so much charcoal so one meal.  We've got lots of chicken and pork chops in the freezer, so I'm going to thaw them all and he is going to grill them all at once.  Then we'll just have to heat them up!

Here's my plan:

Monday:  Pork Stew (I took inventory of my freezer this morning and found 6 of these!)
Tuesday:  Grilled chicken
Wednesday:  Grilled Pork Chops
Thursday:  Ham and Potato Soup  (still trying to go through all the soup I have frozen.  I know it's not a "summer meal", but we all love soups, so we don't mind.)
Friday:  Catfish
Saturday:  Rotisserie Chicken  (homemade)
Sunday:  Leftovers  (will use the remainder of the chicken and come up with something!)

This menu plan will use up a lot of the meat I have in my freezer, putting some of it back in pre-cooked.

Stopping by from Menu Plan Monday today.
Mmm...homemade chicken pot pie sounds wonderful.
Don't you just love Pinterest? I get so much meal ideas from there.
Have a delicious week!

It's actually a recipe passed down from my grandmother. I pretty much steer clear of Pinterest because I would never leave, I think. ;)
