Menu plan Monday

Ahhh, a great mini break comes to a close, and it's back to work, back to school, and back to basketball & soccer. Four practices, and four games per week, between the two kids. Luckily, we did a ton of cooking during our time off - M made beef kebabs, bolognese sauce, & grilled two large packages of chicken. I made taco meat, cookies & homemade bread. This will help us get through this *fun* week, as we get back to life. ;-)

As a reminder, M makes the boys eggs & fruit most days. I eat at work, and pack the kids leftovers or sandwiches for lunches. M & I both get free lunch at work. We have salad every night with dinner.

  • Monday - Leftover beef kebabs + rice 
  • Tuesday - Leftover bolognese sauce over pasta + garlic bread
  • Wednesday - Leftover grilled chicken + rice
  • Thursday - Tacos + homemade guacamole
  • Friday - Rachel Ray's chicken marsala casserole
  • Saturday - Leftovers
  • Sunday - homemade pizza
What about you? Are you using up your leftovers & making the most of everything in your fridge? I also have a goal to get my youngest to keep trying new food, so that's always an adventure. ;-) 


  1. Trying - had to throw out eggnog yesterday as it was past its due date. That frosts me when we are wasteful but it is so hard over the holidays to make sure everything is used up. I really need to use up what is in the freezer though - not an inch for any good deals that come our way.

    1. Can't win them all! And, I'm with you. We have to clean out the freezer & start eating down our giant stash of food! :-)

  2. Wow, that's a bust week for you! My food waste so far today are a couple of boiled eggs that have been sitting in a fridge for way too long...
