I got a ton of prep work done for the whole week this weekend, so dinners should be pretty easy for the next few weeks.
On Saturday, I roasted a chicken and potatoes in the oven. The chicken provided an ingredient for chicken and dumplings soup, 2 meals for Troy's man lunchables, chicken salad, and then chicken stock for future recipes.
Monday:: Chicken salad sandwiches on homemade pretzel rolls, fruit
To do: make the butter crumbles for the shrimp
Tuesday:: A new recipe I'm trying; sauteed shrimp over pasta with mzrytha cheese, salad, and fruit
Wednesday:: Play date!
Thursday:: Another new recipe - apple pancake thingy, scrambled eggies, bacon, and fruit
To do: cook chicken for Friday's pizza
Friday:: BBQ chicken pizza, salad, and fruit
To do: thaw beef, cut potatoes, carrots, and onion
Saturday:: Beef stew, crusty bread, and fruit
Sunday:: dinner at my parent's
I came in $36.12 under budget for groceries for October!
