menu plan (1/30/12)

Saturday we made a delicious chicken. (I know, we don't follow our meal plans very closely).  I can't believe how much chicken we have left over when making this huge 7 lb chicken!  This week's plan has to incorporate that.

Sunday:  Chili - we used some left over chicken in this.  It was a bit hot for Lily (I put tongue tingler salsa in there) so Lily decided against it, but the adults enjoyed it.

Monday:  macaroni chicken salad (still using up that chicken).  Jaimie made two types, one with a creamy dressing and one with a vinegar dressing.  Both were gone very quickly and both girls loved it.

Tuesday:  Beef roast in the slow cooker with potatoes, onions and carrots.  I don't think we would have planned for so much meat so many days in a row but we started thawing it and you just can't re-freeze it after that.

Wednesday:  Leftovers

Thursday:  Quinoa with veggies.  Somehow we never seem to get around to this one on the menu, but here it is again.  It is Imbolc, so maybe we'll make something with eggs or milk (ooh, creme brulee for dessert!)

Friday:  Pesto.  Last time we had cilantro pesto and it was delicious.  I think we're out of the nasturtium leaf pesto, but I'm certain we have oregano and basil in the freezer and in the cupboard.  Maybe we'll use spaghetti squash rather than pasta.

Saturday:  Maybe grilled cheese.  Maybe leftovers.  Maybe something else.  Whatever it is, I'd like to take this Saturday to just wing it.
