Menu Plan Monday 2013 ~ Week of February 25th

Yes, I know!  I'm late with this week's menu plan.  We were very busy running errands this weekend and I found myself away from the computer for most of the time we were home.  I've been bit by the spring cleaning bug and spent most of Sunday cleaning, although you can't really tell!  

In an effort to keep the grocery bill low and make room in the freezer, I'll be cooking (mostly) from the freezer and pantry the next couple of weeks.  

Here's what's on the menu for this week:  


Spaghetti with Meat Sauce, garlic breadsticks 
We have some ground venison in the freezer
that I think will be perfect for a big pot of sauce.


Sauteed Cabbage with turkey bacon and pierogies
I planned on making the cabbage and pierogies over the weekend
with kielbasa from the farmer's market, but we never did make it
to the farmer's market.


Crock Pot Chicken Noodle Soup 
We enjoyed this soup so much last week,
that it's making another appearance in this week's menu!
I think I'll make it with rice this time, instead of noodles.   


Leftover Night 


Crock Pot Minestrone Soup 
and Grilled Cheese Sandwiches
With another week of watching my friend's little boy coming to a close,
I'm sure I will appreciate the simplicity of this dinner.
I've already taken the soup out of the freezer to thaw in the fridge,
so aside from reheating in the microwave,
all I'll have to do is make a few sandwiches!  


Crock Pot Beef Barley Soup 
I love beef barley soup, but rarely get around to making it.
Mainly because anytime I have beef cubes in the house,
I end up making a pot of chili or beef stew.


Braided Spaghetti Bread
It's been a while since I've made this braided spaghetti bread.
I usually make it without cheese,
but since I have a lot of shredded mozzarella cheese in the fridge,
I think I'll add it this time!
