Weekly Menu 4/1-4/7

Gone Camping (some time this week)

Nearly every meal I prepare consists of foods I have cooked or baked in bulk and frozen. I thaw items in a plastic shoe box to prevent condensation dripping onto my shelves (I’ve learned from experience). Then I shop my freezer from my freezer inventory,  to see what goodies I can thaw and serve to my family and others. I write these items down on a seven-day menu plan and post it on my refrigerator as a reminder to thaw my food 24 hours ahead of time. Typically right after the dishes are done, I check my menu plan and put new items into my thawing box and slash them off my freezer inventory. Here’s what I’m thawing this week…

We rotate the same breakfast items each week:

We rotate leftovers, wraps, sandwiches and salads for lunch.
Hubby and kids are off for Easter Break. We’ll head out for a camping trip a couple of days this week and take freezer food, of course. Be sure to check out camping food 101 to see how I plan using freezer and make ahead meals/snacks.
There are plenty of ideas, such as my make ahead smore box and Resee smores, in my Tasty Travel Series series to the right.
I also planned a few extra meals to compensate our family time at home so we aren’t tempted to eat out. It’s nice to have plenty of options to keep the temptations away (as long as it’s in the thawing box, right).


What’s freezer cooking in your kitchen this week?
