Menu plan 9/12/11: Not much meat

There's not much meat in the house this week!  I really need to make another trip to the kosher butcher later on this week, once I start my new grocery budgeting week, to get more.  So we'll be stretching what we have to make the early week meals.

I made a whole chicken for dinner last Friday.  Leftovers were made into chicken salad for a weekend lunch, and yesterday I made chicken soup with its carcass.  I was able to pick lots of bits of chicken after making the soup, so tonight's dinner will be a chicken stir-fry, with last week's vegetables and brown rice.  We still have a little ground beef in the freezer, so Tuesday I'll make a spaghetti sauce with it.  And on Wednesday, I'll make salads with some baked salmon that I have from ALDI.  Veggie chili on Thursday, and that will bring us to Friday, when I'll pick up some fresh meat for dinner!

So here's what's for dinner this week:

Monday - chicken stir-fry over brown rice

Tuesday - beefaroni in tomato sauce, salad

Wednesday - salmon with 7 spice seasoning over salad

Thursday - 3 Can Veggie Chili over pasta

Friday - chicken soup with matzah balls, breaded chicken breasts, salad, challah

Saturday - veggie burritos with rice and salsa

Sunday - sub sandwiches

We always tend to be low on meat because the cost is just so crazy. I like that you show it is possible to have a healthy and versatile menu plan without going overboard on meat! I would love it if you would share this recipe on my menu plan link-up. It would be great to show my readers that you don't need a lot of meat in the house to feed your family well. Thanks! (
