Menu Plan 12/30-1/6

We got back into town yesterday afternoon, and it was one of those occasions where I am truly grateful to have pre-prepared food in my freezer at the ready.  I was able to pull a nice dinner out and just make fresh rice to go along with it instead of running out to spend ungodly amounts of money on fast food yet again.  (I seriously do not even want to discuss the $20  for beignets and coffee at Cafe Du Monde!)

I know that I'm not going to have all my new year planning and preparations in place until a week into it, so I've planned a menu around my existing freezer meals once again this week.

Sunday:  My daughter asked for red beans and rice when we got in.  She was in luck!  I had one container left!

Monday:  Turkey Pot Pie

Tuesday:  Chicken Alfredo

Wednesday:  Use up the leftovers!

Thursday:  Spaghetti

Friday:  Pork Stew

Saturday:  Cabbage Roll Casserole

Sunday:  Use up the leftovers!

I also did a quick inventory of my over the fridge freezer and found some breakfast breads and a couple lunch items that we will be using up in the coming weeks, and then I will begin planning cooking sessions to replenish these things.

What is on your menu plan this week?

MPM definitely keeps me on track. I actually look forward to Mondays!
Your menu plan looks delicious.
Have a wonderful week and a Happy New Year!

Welcome home, and just remember: the Cafe du Monde is SOOOO worth it! Nice strategy for keeping sane with your freezer meals while you recover and plan. Happy New Year!

I love it when I can just pull homemade food out of the freezer!

Do you have a frozen alfredo sauce recipe? I've been afraid to freeze mine, because I thought it would separate and get gross.

I'm doing a Pantry Challenge this month, so we're eating a lot from the freezer, too. My menu for the rest of this week is HERE.

Amy, it was actually a jarred alfredo sauce that i used, and I froze it all mixed with the chicken. Just made fresh pasta. Tasted alright to me! =)
