Menu plan: Meat in the freezer again!

There's meat in the freezer now!

Last week I made a run to the kosher butcher - this was the first time I had bought meat there all year, though I had picked some up at the Albertsons closing sale. (They had a kosher butcher within the store.  I so miss that.)

And boy, did I get sticker shock.  After months of typing in great deals on meat for my "Under a Buck" series, it was sad to see the prices.  But I did the best I could, so now we have ground beef, chicken breasts, and a few whole chickens in the freezer.  Along with canned tuna and hot dogs, I'm hoping we won't have to go shopping again for meat for a couple more months.

So you won't be finding loads of meat in my menu plan.  Also, I'm repeating last week's plan for Monday - the menu plan there was derailed by my birthday dinner FAIL.  And this weekend I hope to be doing some freezer cooking, so meals will be super simple!

Monday - macaroni and cheese, tuna salad, cut-up veggies

Tuesday - chicken stir-fry over brown rice

Wednesday - mushroom pizza on homemade whole-wheat crust, fruit

Thursday - hamburger patties, oven fries, cut-up veggies

Friday - roast chicken, rice with caramelized onions and cranberries, soup, salad, challah

Saturday - grilled cheese and tomato soup

Sunday - eat out!
