Back again for menu plan Sunday - January menu ideas week three. I have been making a lot of soups because winter calls for comfort foods and soups in your menu planning ideas. Soups are great frugal meal ideas.
This week we have comfort food and some outdoor barbecue due to some nicer weather. We never barbecued the chicken from last week's menu because we had lots of leftovers to eat one night and I never throw food away if it can make a frugal meal. Quite the variety for my menu plan for the week.
Weekly Menu Plan January Week 3
Monday: Crock Pot pulled pork sandwiches, Best cole slaw ever
Tuesday: Creamy Pumpkin Soup, Easy French Bread
Wednesday: Dinner out with in-laws
Thursday: Bean Burritos, Simple Spanish rice
Saturday: Turkey pot pies, sliced oranges from our trees, sauteed greens from the garden.
I will make double the pot pies and freeze the other. I am trying to always make a freezer meal one night a week. One to eat and one to freeze. Freezer meals are great times and money savers.
Breakfast: I will also be making a big batch of granola to fill the jar. I like making this often in our attempts at cooking more of our food from scratch.
