In my quest to make February a month of no eating out, I will be meal planning again. I started by picking out my main dish or main meat and built my meal plans around that. I wanted one fish meal, 2 beef, 2 chicken, 1 pasta, and 1 pizza, so from there I filled in the rest based on what I have in my fridge, freezer, or jars and cans of food.
Day One--Pizza with pepperoni, Canadian bacon, prosciutto, onions, and bell pepper (if we have one, I have to check still, but I think we do, or will use frozen), served with a salad
Day Two--Salmon (stuff we caught during the summer), fried potatoes from our home grown potatoes, broccoli
Day Three--Beef Pot Roast (from our steer), Mashed potatoes from our home grown potatoes, green beans (home grown and canned)
Day Four--Baked Penne with sausage, tomatoes, onions, sauce and mozzarella cheese, salad
Day Five--French onion chicken, cole slaw
Day Six--Steaks (from our steer), French fries, broccoli
Day Seven--Fried Chicken, mashed potatoes (from our home grown potatoes), green beans (home grown and canned)
Now to see if I can stick to it.
