This is what we are going to have on the menu using the groceries I purchased this week and the stockpile in my pantry and freezer from previous weeks and months of $60 shopping lists. Remember that one of my New Year's goals is to serve a meatless meal once a week, and we have three theme nights per week: Taco Tuesday, Pizza Friday, and Breakfast for dinner on Sundays.
Wednesday-My mom is bringing us dinner as payment and to make time for emergency repairs/alterations to dad's tuxedo. He needs it for an event ASAP!
Thursday- Teriyaki Chicken and Rice with steamed veggies
Friday-Pizza night! Canadian Bacon & Chicken Alfredo
Saturday- Broccoli Cheddar soup, Garden Salad and breadsticks
Sunday-Breakfast for dinner! Bacon, Egg and Cheese Biscuits, OJ and hashbrowns
Monday- Chicken Nuggets, Baked Potatoes, Green Beans and Strawberry Banana Jello Parfaits
Tuesday-Taco Tuesday! Three bean Taco Salad and crispy tortilla strips.
