After many weeks of posting menu plans that listed meals that we didn't get to the previous week, I decided to go without a menu plan this week to see what happens.
My OCD personality, is giving me a bit of stress when I don't stick to the plan as posted and I feel that I am re-posting the same meals week after week. I'm thinking that a couple of weeks of winging it, will help me to get back on track, take inventory of my freezer and pantry, decide what to stock up on for the next couple of months and also decide on some new recipes to try.
Today, I pulled a bunch of stuff from the freezer to thaw for meals, including the whole chicken that I've been planning to make the past few weeks but never got around to thawing. I'm thinking that I may be trying a new recipe with that chicken and also a new recipe for some diced London Broil. I'll be sure to post them either here on this blog or at My Vintage Kitchen (my food/kitchen blog).
Also, today, I made enchiladas using a different filling than I've been using. We were really pleased with the results! What a wonderful way to use up leftovers and make a some room in the freezer for the FREE turkey we earned by shopping at Giant for spending a certain amount of money in a certain amount of time. I don't remember the details, but buying baby formula and diapers was a big help in earning us that FREE turkey. We'll be picking it up this week!
