Menu Plan Tuesday, January 10th, 2012

My Favorite Pot Roast
 This week's plan:

Baked Ziti with Mini Meatballs
Freezer Cooking While Making Dinner:
  • Bake a double batch of Whole Wheat Banana Bread while making Salmon dinner on Sunday. Freeze one loaf, eat one loaf.
  • Save the pot roast gravy and remaining meat. Freeze; add to Minestrone Soup next time I make it (Delicious!)
  • Make Bean and Cheese Quesadillas until I run out of beans and cheese. Freeze extras not used for dinner on Tuesday.
  • Freeze single and double portions of Kale White Bean Soup after serving it for dinner.
  • Double sauce recipe from Baked Ziti with Mini Meatballs. Use half of sauce, freeze remaining half to go with 2nd batch of mini meatballs already frozen for the next ziti.
 I may also do some chicken processing for the freezer if I get the chance.

Wow. You go, girl! I need to get back to doing more of this kind of cooking. Christmas drained me. Love the pot roast! Found you on Menu Plan Monday.

I love your salmon and bok choy dinner idea. Sounds very tasty. Salmon is a favorite at our house.

I would love for you to share your dinner ideas on my meme: http://www.crystalandcomp.com/2012/01/simple-dinner-ideas-setting-up-your-menu-plan-dinnerideas/
