January 10th - 16th Menu

Brrrr, it's so cold it's ridiculous! We don't have snow, ice or any of that wet stuff but it's cold nonetheless. It's so cold I saw a democrat with his hands in his own pockets! Heh...

Speaking of cold, I'm taking part in a clean out the freezer challenge so this week's menu is based on what's in that freezer, just screaming to get out so new stuff can come in. I also got a new Aroma electric wok and want to use it.

Sunday night we had roasted chicken with green beans, carrots, potatoes, and onions that were cooked in the new wok.

The rest of the week we'll have, in no particular order:

Chicken and vegetable soup with the leftover chicken and vegetables

Turkey sausage and beef meatballs in "gravy" (a light broth based sauce) served with salad and steamed spinach

Meat crust pizza topped with turkey bacon, smoked turkey, and turkey pastrami

Seasoned baked salmon with caramelized onions, served with salad and steamed broccoli

Chili Relleno Casserole with
ugly green bean fries

YOYO (You're On Your Own) when we clean out the fridge of leftovers, snack on something light, have a couple of hotdogs, or whatever

And that's it for this week's hearty, healthy, and very frugal menu. :)

Is your menu made for the coming week? If so, please share! I love to see what others are eating and it often gives me great ideas for something new. And don't forget to head over to Menu Plan Monday headquarters for new ideas from Laura and company.
