It’s Monday again, and the best part of this day is the menu planning and sharing over at OrgJunkie! You should go visit over there and see the VERY long list of folks that play along with this Menu Plan Monday and snoop on their menu board. It is a great way to get a ton of new ideas for your own supper!
I have been doing a pretty good job of using up the freezer meals that I made last month, and I am hoping to do another freezer cooking day soon. However, I do have to share about a freezer cooking FAILURE that we had yesterday. We were invited to supper at the in-laws house so I decided to make the Rosemary Chicken and Potatoes (from the McCormick Seasoning card) for lunch.
I had it all defrosted to make that evening, so no biggie. However, when I dumped it out onto the baking sheet, all of the potatoes were BLACK. It was gross!!! I didn’t want to throw out the chicken, because that was still good, and it’s not like they were rotten from exposure, so I moved the chicken to a bowl, cut up some new potatoes and tossed it with the seasoning and oil still left on the chicken. It was very dry though, so I’m not sure how I will deal with the other bag of it in the freezer.
So, moral of the story… don’t freeze potatoes. And this is strange, though, because the potatoes in the beef stew that I made last week were fine. Kooky.
Moving on. Here is my menu for the week!
Monday: Chicken N Biscuits – based on Melissa D’Arabian’s recipe and it is awesome! I have made it at least a dozen times, and everyone loves it.
Tuesday: Tacos – this will be made by Jake (my 11 yr old)
Wednesday: My 14th anniversary!! I will be making steak and potatoes because that is my hubby’s favorite. This is a GREAT Steak 101! Funny too, but potty mouthed words.
Thursday: Pork Chops. Not sure if it will be my usual Cream of Mushroom gravy and rice, or if I’ll poke around Pinterest for something new.
Saturday: FFYS – fend for yourself / leftovers / something from the freezer. We have a birthday party at 2 to go to, so I’m not sure if/when we will do dinner.
Sunday: Pork BBQ Ribs from the freezer. I have to remember to pick up some more ribs though – it makes a ton of sauce, but not enough ribs for everyone. They are crazy good though!
That’s it for me. What will you make?
