Aug 16, 2010 Menu Monday , , 4 Comments

Since it has suddenly gotten chilly and I did not have a chance to hit Portobello vegetable market – this week is going to be an eat the freezer week.  I might have a change of heart about my menu if the weather realizes that it is August and not October. Fingers crossed on that one.

Sunday Cooking – Chili in the slow cooker – a lot of this will be decanted into one portion containers and frozen

Monday – Chili with rice

Tuesday –  Another portion of Simply Fish (bought on sale) with green beans

Wednesday – Quick omelette with tomato and basil salad before going out

Thursday -Honey, chili and lime pork chops with black beans and rice

Friday – Chili again

Saturday – Greek Lamb with orzo

Sunday – depends what I get when I hit the market on Saturday

    Slow cookers are great! I need to use mine more.

    Hi Charla, thanks for commenting. I found that I needed to get into the habit of using my slow cooker, then once I found recipes that I loved I keep repeating them.
    The only problem I have now is having too much food in my freezer and forgetting what I have.

    Sometimes eating from your freezer is great! It’s hot here this week so that would’ve been a smart idea for me. 🙂 But I’m not that smart! haha. Found you on MPM.

    I enjoy using my slow cooker too. It definitely keeps the kitchen cooler.
