This week, I’m trying to clean out my freezer–I have TONS of things in there. Basically, the only meal I have to really buy the main things for are the meatloaf and mashed potatoes. Fortunately for me, my favorite meatloaf is one that I don’t even have to do anything fun with. My favorite meatloaf is the Hormel brand that you just pop in the microwave. I would rather have this any day over a homemade meatloaf. I think it has to do with texture (I like the taste of almost everything–I have to fight with not liking a food because of texture constantly).

Sunday: Cheeseburgers, Fries

Monday: Grilled Cheese, Chips

Tuesday: Taco Soup, Chips and Salsa

Wednesday: Shake N Bake Chicken, Green Beans

Thursday: Meatloaf, Mashed Potatoes

Friday: Easy Crusted Salmon, Steamed Broccoli, Wheat Roll

mpm3

Monday: Grilled Cheese, Chips, Grapes

Tuesday: French Bread Pizza (on sale this week!), Salad

Wednesday: Parmesan Risotto for Two, Salad

Thursday – Saturday: Who knows! All I know is we’ll be eating some goooooood Mexican food (and hopefully some BBQ too)!

Well folks, it’s that time again! After being extremely tired in the evenings last week, I have one meal that is being crossed over to this week (I really can’t believe how much we ended up eating out last week!). Also, we registered for baby yesterday. Both of us were so tuckered out that we ended up just making grilled cheese.

Hopefully this week, I can save some energy for cooking. P will be out of town on Friday and Saturday, so I’m on my own those nights, which means leftovers and (my fave) egg and cheese sandwiches!

Ooohh. I just realized that we are eating a lot of beef this week…  Better variety cometh next week!

mpm3

Sunday: Crazy Noodles, Sautéed Zucchini

Monday: Garden Salad (Baby Lettuces, Cucumber, Tomato, Carrot, Croutons), Wheat Rolls

Tuesday: Burgers, Side Salad

Wednesday: Cheesy Chicken & Rice Casserole, Corn

Thursday: Soft Tacos, Chips & Salsa

Friday: Chicken and Rice Leftovers, Green Beans

Saturday: Egg & Cheese Sandwich (if I don’t go out with a friend)
