Last week I posted a menu of what I was making for dinner, and it was totally fun. It gave me focus when it came to nightime meal planning (something I lack), as well as it had already been thought out and I didn't have to think about it, just went thru the freezer and cabinets and added those items I was without. Most of these meals are make what you need for 2 or more people, so not really many leftovers, but you could make more if you wanted.
Please remember, I am not a cook, I am a heat and eater......smile.
Monday -- Target's Market Pantry Buffalo Chicken Strips -- Love them. 400 degree oven for 20 min and they are ready to go. I will be serving it over a green salad, with tortilla strips -- (right out of the bag), grated cheese, tomatoes, olives, ranch dressing, with Mini Club Crackers on the side.
Not feeling the salad? Do a KFC bowl, and add, mashed potatoes (out of a bag-- those heat and eats are pretty good- remember I don't cook, I heat and prepare), some gravy, cheese, corn if you like.
Tuesday -- Tacos. Ground beef with taco seasoning, cheese, salsa, tomatoes, lettuce, and maybe pinto beans on the side. Crunchy or soft your choice.
Not feeling tacos-- make a burrito. Add some queso -- love the Tostitos Queso .
Wednesday -- BLT - with Egg. Yep, bacon, lettuce, tomato, with a fried egg sandwich. I am loving the Trader Joe's already cooked applewood smoked bacon with no nitrates. On the side, possibly a bag of chips.
Thursday -- Meatball subs. Yep, those frozen Trader Joe's meatballs that are always in the freezer, on a sub roll from the store deli, lightly toasted with some marinara sauce, and parmesan on the top. On the side -- salad of course. Almost like an open faced sub pizza. Yum. Messy, eat with a fork.
Side note -- if I don't have left over spahetti sauce, I like the Kroger or any store brand Pizza Sauce. Works perfect.
Friday -- Baked chicken breast -- just pop in a pyrex, with some butter and my favorite seasoning Mrs. Dash, and bake, on the side -- stuffing, and some Trader Joe's Gravy -- probably brown, and some green beans. Also on the side, a glass of wine.
For the weekend -- been dying for a grilled cheese and tomato soup, as well as a slice of pizza, as well as whatever is in the freezer to heat and eat.
