Part of the series that I am just starting about pantry/freezer organization is to use what you have on hand. Through my cabinet cleanout I found tons of stuff that I didn't know I had, and then annoying things like two opened canisters of bread crumbs. I am going to start participating in Orgjunkie's Menu Plan Monday, which is where tons of bloggers put up what they are making for the week. One so it helps you be more organized by being a bit accountable to stick to a menu plan, and two because you can pick up a bunch of new ideas and recipes from other people.
So here is my plan for the week:
Monday- Chicken Tortilla Soup in the crockpot - found the recipe here
Tuesday- Penne with jarred vodka sauce, and I'll add some cooked bacon (I have just a few strips left), peas and parmesan
Wednesday- I have a frozen meatloaf from when I made one and made an extra to freeze. I used this recipe from Paula Deen, but used turkey instead of beef and eliminated the green pepper. It turned out great.
Thursday- I bought some pesto to make this Tuscan Chicken Simmer from Kraft food and family. For some reason I always really like their recipes, lol.
Friday- Turkey Tetrazzini from an old Family Circle magazine. If it turns out good, I'll post the recipe here. ;)
Saturday- Going out!
Sunday- Clean out leftovers/eat whatever the football friends bring over!
So we'll see how these go! Check out the other menu plans at Menu Plan Monday!
