Menu Plan Monday and Happy Birthday to ME :)



What a week, no?!!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and I wish everyone a Happy New Year!

Well, today (12/27) is my birthday and I forgot to factor that in when I was planning last week's menu so today's homemade Mac-n-Cheese will be pushed into this week. It is definitely worth keeping on the menu though...soo yummy....

I didn't get around to making the Spaghetti and ameataballs either last week. We had so much left over Pork roast that it feed us for 3 days plus I have a pan of Pork Enchiladas in the freezer too boot!

We went through the freezer today and emptied it because it needs to be defrosted. The weather is cold enough to keep the food frozen outside in a cooler for the few days it takes to get the freezer thawed out. Much of this week's menu is based on things we found in the freezer that really need to be eaten soon as they are starting to get old.

As always, many thanks to Laura at I'm an Organizing Junkie for hosting the Menu Plan Monday event.

I hope you had a lovely birthday!

I answered your question on my post, but thought I would leave an answer here as well. When I have frozen the meatballs in the cream of mushroom soup, everything thaws perfectly. When I have frozen the soup on its own, it kind of separates when it thaws and I have to whisk it back together.

BTW, your menu looks delicious!
