Or Sunday, as it happens :)
The MPM event actually starts on Sunday evening, and this works great for me. I usually start working out next week's menu on Friday or Saturday so that everyone in the house has a chance to review it or make requests for what they would like to see on the menu. It gives me time to go through the freezers and pantry to see what I need to use up and figure out what I need to buy for coming meals as well.
This week I am going to make up some freezer meals. Today, I am roasting 2 whole chickens, 1 for dinner tonight and 1 for some casseroles I want to make up. I will be making 2 pans of Chicken Enchiladas, and an easy Chicken Cordon Blue Casserole. Both of these are family favorites and freeze really well.
Breakfasts this week will be the usual, cereal, fresh fruit, toast. Weekend Breakfast are considerably hardier. If I want to get my husband and dad to get anything done around the house (and not run off with their fishing poles), I got to make the Grand Slam for them :)
Lunches this week will be Turkey Sandwiches (got a great deal on lunch meat!) When that runs out I might make up some Egg Salad. We also still have a good deal of crackers and cheese to snack on, and I am thinking about making some Soft Peanut Brittle. My dad is down to his last piece of Rat Turd Pie, so I will probably have to make another one of those too. Please come home soon Mom...
Monday - make freezer casseroles
Easy Chicken Stew with Dumplings, if there are any leftovers from this meal I will slap a Bisquick crust on it for a Chicken Pot Pie and stick in the freezer too :)
