Weekly Menu 7/11-7/17

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). 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…


Breakfast: Cereal (usually cheerios) with bananas  or homemade granola, crockpot yogurt (recipe coming soon) with fruit and granola, toast, freezer waffles, backyard eggs from the Chicken Project or  freezer breakfast wraps . We rotate these breakfast items.

Lunches: miscellaneous sandwiches, salads, wraps and fruits. I rotate these items as well. I’ve made a few pasta salads with frozen black beans and frozen pasta for picnics and they have been a huge hit (recipes coming soon). I use a lot of grilled convenience chicken for quick meals.

Dinners:We got our first meat CSA box this week, pictured here. I’m starting to freezer cook some of the meats and incorporate them into our evening meals. I usually get at least two meals from one cut of meat, depending on what it is.

Here’s the line up this week”
