Week 51 Menu Plan – Using What We Have

AND … entering Week 27 of Hubby’s Unemployment Adventures …

I never really thought we would hit WEEK 27 to be honest. I mean, heck, he’s well respected in his field … there just isn’t that many jobs, unfortunately. It’s frustrating for him and I just wish I could give him more confidence to take the plunge and aim for something a little different … I’m trying to be patient and not get snotty … but it’s hard 😉

I will need to go the store and get some basics, milk, bread, some fruit and veggies … now that Sonny Boy is back, I need to remember the food consumption will double.

So this week will be LOTS and LOTS of leftovers … well at least for the first few days of the week …

Sunday – leftovers from Saturdays party … stuffed shells, lasagna, meatballs, snausages, ham, turkey, you name it, we probably have it!

Monday – more leftovers. Same as above. I mean, seriously!

Tuesday – Hubby and Sonny Boy want to make meatball subs with the leftover meatballs … so I will say go for it … need to pick up hoagie/sub rolls from store

Wednesday – Sonny Boy will be back at his apartment to show it to a potential new tenant … (fingers crossed!) so Hubby will make Super Easy Clam Chowder (all ingredients in pantry and fridge)



Thursday -crockpot time, ranch pork chops (didn’t make them last week), chops in freezer, balance of ingredients in pantry and I have some premade taters in the fridge

Friday – Bacon and Blue Cheese Burgers on the grill … have beef and bacon in freezer, blue cheese in fridge, will need to buy buns

Saturday – Hubbys choice … we have a “replacement” mattress coming today … I’m so excited. Our current one is a little over 5 years old and it’s CRAP … they are giving us a full refund to apply to any new mattress so we opted for a natural latex with the gel beads. I’m so excited!  I think dinner will be simple so we can go sleepy!
