Quick fix meals and freezer cooking save my bacon during busy weeks.

Here we are at the end of the month. How did that happen? I must be having a lot of fun — time is just flying!

Our next week promises to be extremely busy: orthodontist appointments, hockey practice and games begin (2 boys playing!), an out of town trip to meet up with a good friend, and page proofs for the Cookbook to work through. Thank goodness for freezer meals and easy dinners!

For the last couple days I’ve been trying to fill the freezer with breakfast items, but these kids are eating everything before I can freeze it! Holy smokes!

Here’s the dinner plan for the week:

Seasoned Steak with Herb Butter, Roast Potatoes, Salad

Beans and RiceQuesadillas

Soy Ginger Pork Tenderloin, Rice, Veg

Soup Night, Good Bread, Monster Ice Cream Sundae (Leap Day!)

Date Night – Pasta and Veg

Pizza Night, Salad

Chef’s Choice

  1. This is the week where I have hit the wall. I do not want to cook and i do not want to menu plan. 🙁
    However, it must be done so here’s what we will eat:
    hamburger steaks, rice and gravy with a salad
    crockpot chicken cacciatore over noodles with fruit
    breakfast (ham, biscuits, gravy, grits and fruit)
    crockpot chicken noodle soup and cornbread
    venison cubed steeaks and onion, mashed potatoes and green beans

  2. I’m not feeling very inspired right now either to menu plan, and I usually love it. Part of it is b/c my hubby is working a 2nd job and we have a crazy schedule and therefore, he’s not home many nights for dinner. I have a very picky toddler and let’s just say…it’s easier to throw together a snacky dinner instead of making a meal. 😉

    Here’s what I think we’re eating this week:

    Crock pot Baked Potato Bar, raw veggies
    Homemade personal pizzas, carrot sticks
    Ham Steak, Hash browns, fruit
    Chicken Parmesan Bake {from freezer}, steamed broccoli
    Sloppy Joes, Onion Rings, fruit

    • @Julie H, Oh! I can do that Potato bar too. Good idea! Potatoes have been on sale here so I bought several bags and stored them outside in our detached garage. Thanks for sharing your menu b/c it gave me a good alternative 🙂

  3. Looks great – I’m going to look for that soy ginger tenderloin recipe! What is “good bread”?

  4. hot dogs
    turkey, potatoes, dressing
    sausage/peppers w/mac and cheese
    frito chili pie
    All of this uses meat thats already in the freezer and veggies from the AHO box. Just had to buy milk, cheese, fritos and lunch and breakfast items this week.

  5. Another advantage to planning for a month at a time – you “don’t hit the wall” at the end of the month (at least in MHO)! Here is my menu plan for this week –

    Hope you enjoy and have a GREAT week!

    Hugs –
