This weeks meal plan is based on items that I had in my pantry and freezer. We are on a tight budget this week, so I needed to make sure that I was using what we had on hand to keep the grocery bill down! I found some really good deals on ground beef last week, so I have about 9 lbs in my freezer. I also have chicken thighs in the freezer, bacon, tortillas and eggs in my fridge. Then in the pantry, I had pinto beans, white beans, and cornmeal.
So… this is what I came up with:
Monday: Chili Mac – This is a simple chili recipe mixed with macaroni noodles.
Wednesday: Bacon Sprinkled Chicken Thighs with Roast Cauliflower and Green Beans
Thursday : Couples Small Group/ Pasta Fagioli with Cornbread
Friday : Breakfast for dinner – Scrambled Eggs, Pancakes, and Bacon
This week, I am going to be adding 3 recipes to the blog! Chili Mac, Bacon Sprinkled Chicken Thighs, and Pasta Fagioli.
Would you rather have an Instant Pot Chicken or Baked?? Chicken Thighs are a lot more forgiving in the oven than chicken breast, so they will be delicious either way.
Speaking of recipes… I did a poll and asked if you would like to have a shopping list for my meal plan Monday’s. I got a great positive response to that, so I am going to start looking into seeing how I can make that happen!
So, be on the lookout for those new recipes and happy cooking!
