Here is my menu for last week and this current week. They go from Wednesday to Tuesday, since we get our grocery ads on Tuesday evening. I used to do it from Friday to Thursday, since my errand day was on Friday, but it just works better now to have my errand day on Wednesday. This gives me time to put together meals for the weekend, bake any bread products I will need for the next week and buy any additional things I might have forgotten before Sunday and have a chance to make sure everything is all organized and put away before Friday.
Baked chicken hindquarters and baked potatoes
Bean Dip with Homemade re fried beans
Potato Salad and Hoagies--for the potato salad, we were traveling to Nauvoo the night before, so I didn't want it to spoil at all. I put all the chunky ingredients (i.e. diced potatoes, sliced hard-boiled eggs and pickles) into an ice cream bucket and brought with me an unopened bottle of mayonnaise. When it was time to eat, I pulled everything out of the cooler, mixed in the mayo and some mustard and voila~potato salad, without the worry of food poisoning. Then, when all of us had eaten (and it was pretty much all gone), I just threw everything in the trash--since it was just an ice cream bucket.
Leftovers and ice cream
Spanish Rice Enchiladas--I made homemade tortillas, filled them with Spanish rice and some shredded cheddar, folded them up and then poured green enchilada sauce over them. They tasted VERY yummy!
Spanish Rice Fritatta
Hummus and Homemade Pita Bread
Pigs in a blanket
Sloppy Joes and Coleslaw
Sausage and Pepperoni Pizza
Chicken Enchiladas (a special Father's Day request!)
Spaghetti and Garlic Rolls
Cabbage Ramen Salad
Egg Rolls--filled with the leftover salad. The seasonings are SO different it doesn't even taste like a recreation of the same meal.
