This week's eats - a few fall favorites

Wow, two weeks in a row participating in Menu Plan Monday! It just doesn't get much better than this. ;) And with fall foods like squash coming in, it's bound to be a great week of eating!

Sunday night we had beef chuck roast, broiled in the convection oven, with roasted vegetables, including squash. As usual, the leftovers will be used in other meals throughout the week.

Tonight, leftover Chunky Chili Chicken with leftover brown rice, tossed salad, and green beans are on the menu.

The rest of the week our meals will be, in no particular order:

Shredded beef roll ups, using Joseph's low carb Lavash bread, leftover beef roast, chopped tomato, finely shredded carrot, finely shredded squash, and choice of dressing

Beef pot pie, using low carb tortillas for crust and leftover beef roast and vegetables, thickened, for the filling, served with salad and spinach

Chicken soup using leftover Chunky Chili Chicken as a base with vegetables, broth, and perhaps a few homemade noodles added

Salad night where we eat biiiig salads with just about every vegetable on hand in them

Open face beef roast sandwiches using the Lavash bread, leftover beef roast, and faux mashed potatoes

That's it, folks. Several easy meals mostly made from leftovers of foods cooked on my days off. The meals are all thrifty, very tasty, filling, and easy to make.

Oh yeah, I love them and rarely make them. My mom used to make them frequently but I just don't think about them often. Thanks for stopping by!
