Last week, I did not do any grocery shopping other than the few items from this Kwik Trip. DH found his bargains, and added four boxes of cereal, onions. apples, mushrooms, peppers, and two bags of frozen chicken to our stocks. We ate another of our frozen meals from Hyvee night, the Pesto-Spinach Lasagna. It was really delicious. I worried I wouldn't be a fan because I'm not a huge pesto fan, but it was subtle. DH was luke warm on the Spicy Shrimp Scampi served last Sunday. In hindsight, I should have omitted the red pepper flakes. Other meals were chicken cutlets on ciabatta buns, hoagie sandwiches (also on the buns) tuna hot dish, pork chops and sweet potato fries, and burritos.
Because we have a lot of chicken, it is popping up a lot but more than likely not all five meals-just possibilities. It's not an exciting menu, but no take out or restaurants in the plan. The options might be:
Chicken noodle soup and egg salad sandwiches
Chicken, mashed potatoes, and steamed vegetables
BBQ pulled chicken sandwiches, potato wedges
Chicken fajitas with onions and peppers
Chicken and dumplings with mixed vegetables and potatoes Vegetarian chili and crackers
Turkey meatloaf and julienne potatoes
Homemade chicken nuggets, veggie rice pilaf
Spaghetti and meatballs
DD2 has a full weekend of choreography this coming weekend so I'm hoping to tuck away some bowls of soup and chili for her to heat up and eat before going or once home, though the moms in charge feed the kids a meal each day. There should be enough for lunch leftovers and I still have some deli turkey for sandwiches or wraps. We really need minimal groceries this week. I'm trying to not clutter up my fridge or freezer either, so want to tightly manage the in-comings and outgoings leading up to Thanksgiving.
