Menu Plan Monday

Wednesday: Leftovers
Thursday: Christmas Party 1
Friday: Freezer Food
Saturday: Pub night for Paul’s Bday
Sunday: “Dairy and Gluten Free Meal” Details to follow!

I’ve picked easy foods this week – I tossed the Crock Pot Creamy Taco’s in this morning which means that tonight while I would normally be cooking dinner I’ll be bulk baking chicken for lunches and Tuesday’s dinner and Microwaving the Rice for Tuesday’s dinner. Then we’ll be heading out to a Deacon’s meeting and I won’t have had to spend more than 20 minutes in the kitchen and will have dinner for Monday and half of Tuesdays dinner prepped!

Then Tuesday I’ll only have to steam the Brocooli and mix the rest of the ingredients for the casserole. Which means I can consentrate on setting up for LG, chatting and praying with Paul about the meeting portion of the evening, and probably even get a few minutes to have a sit down with a book…or pack some boxes. Not sure yet.

Between Monday and Tuesdays dinner there will be more than enough for leftovers on Wednesday, which is good since Paul has class until 7:30 and always needs to take lunch and dinner that day. This is also Paul’s birthday, so I feel bad that I’m not making him some big Paul meal, but he assures me that he eats well all the time and not to worry.

Thursday night is the first of my work Christmas Parties so that is food taken care of (it’s going to be awesome – the our travel agents party) and Friday night we have a youth worship night (Chapel!) so we’ll pull out some of the freezer food for easy cooking…and because we have to eat through our freezer to help the move.

We own a standing deep freezer and our fridge. So we need to move them when we move. I’ve been told though, that when you move freezer and fridge’s they should be given a day to sit, plugged in, without being used. My plan is to move the food over into the new house’s fridge/freezer. But this means I have to use up much of what we have in both of ours so they fit well into one fridge/freezer. I’m planning to eat through most of the convenience foods and random pieces, we’ll have enough space at the house already to freeze up chicken and other bulk items like the ham and turkey I have but not enough to empty my deep freezer as is.

 Saturday packing all day (I’m even paying some of the youth from our church to help me as part of a fundraiser they are doing) and after that it is Paul’s bday dinner at a pub. After a day full of packing (I’m planning 9:30am to 5pm) I’ll be very glad to have a shower, get dressed nicely and head out to a pub with friends. Sunday I’ll be packing for a bit in the morning, then meeting my Nana for lunch, hosting at church and then heading home to make a specialty allergy-specific meal for friends and will be posting the details of that later this week (in case you need any ideas for awesome food that caters to allergies).

I'm making a blog visit from Organizing Junkie's Menu Plan Monday today.
I have lots of chicken in the freezer so I'm always looking for tasty chicken recipes.
It's a sunny and warm day in Las Vegas. I've been living on the West coast for 18 years. It's funny when friends, from Maine, will mention that they're shoveling snow I caught off guard. That's right, you're dealing with snow!
Hope you have a wonderful and delicious week!
