I found myself adding a lot of comfort foods to the menu this week. I’m planning to make some larger quantity meals that we can freeze for later as I feel like we have a busy couple of weeks ahead.
Sunday- Sweet and Sour Chicken with Rice. This is a new recipe from the Delish menu planning service. Traditional flavoring of pineapple and soy sauce
Monday- Beef Chili. Grass fed ground beef is on sale so I plan to stock up. I’ll freeze a dinner’s worth of the chili. I will be testing out making the chili in the pressure cooker. Hope it’s as good as making it in the crock-pot.
Tuesday- “CORN” Clean Out Refrigerator Night. With a couple of big meals made, I don’t want the leftover to get “left” behind.
Wednesday- Ash Wednesday so we will be enjoying fish and I’ll be trying to remember to not eat meat at lunch.
Thursday- Roasting a Turkey. They are on sale this week for $1.29/lb so I’m going to cook one to enjoy turkey dinner, then use the leftovers for sandwiches and/or soup. I’ll also make some Turkey Broth in the Pressure Cooker.
Friday- Was going to be Sweet and Sour Turkey Meatballs. Nontraditional flavorings of cranberry and orange. This recipe is from Simple Bites. After I finished my plan, I remembered it’s Lent. Somehow I remembered for Ash Wednesday, but not the Friday change. My guess is I’ll make a meatless pizza on Friday instead and bump the meatballs to Saturday. Just one more reason why I like my Chalkboard Menu Plan.
