For the next 2 weeks, I’ll be planning my menu around 1 or 2 people. My goal is to put some meals in the freezer for the summer. With some great finds at a local store, I’m now the new owner of a 14 cup Cuisinart food processor, a 4 cup Cuisinart food processor and a few J. A. Henckles knives! I got a great deal on them (under $50 one has a scratch, only 3 knives with the set, and I’m missing a couple blades), and I’m so excited!
I”ll definitely be at the farmers market this week looking for fresh tomatoes, I’m in a great need of salsa this week. Some things I will be doubling to freeze, other things I’ll only be using as a freezer meal, I’ll mark which ones are which.
Monday: Grilled Fajita Chicken ( I will keep about a cup of this out for my dinner, and freeze the excess )
Tuesday: Chicken Noodle Soup (I will be making stock this day to freeze, and keeping a little out for my soup)
Wednesday: Ribeye Steaks (DH may or may not be home this day, if not I’ll slice his steak for salads and freeze)
Thursday: Smoked Spiraled Sliced Ham (I’ll eat a few slices of this for lunches and maybe dinner, the rest will be divided and frozen)
Friday: Carribean Style Pork Chops (I will be making the marinade, and freezing the entire package)
Saturday: Stuffed Buffalo Chicken (I’ll double this recipe and have one for dinner with friends, and one for the freezer)
Sunday: Roast Chicken with Red Potatoes (I’ll be slicing and dicing the leftovers for sandwiches and salads)
I also plan on making cinnamon rolls and dinner rolls as soon as I find a good recipe.
