Menu Plan Week 160 – Using What We Have – Paleo / Whole30

Hey hey … it’s Monday and I’m a day late πŸ˜‰

That little flu bug made his appearance this past week … was feeling off for a few days and then bam! 2am Friday morning he decided to make his announcement! Wholly crap did I feel bad. Poor Hubby … he was a little besides himself wanting to do something to make me feel better yet he really wanted me to help him with a few projects around the house. Uhm, hello, it’s Friday and I called in sick which I rarely do! So my 3 day weekend moved in to a 4 day weekend, although none of it was fun at all but I did do some little things around the house (decluttered, cleaned, laundry, and so on) … I’m just glad it’s Monday night and fingers crossed that the fever broke this afternoon during my emotional breakdown πŸ˜‰ Yes, a tear or two was shed and I just felt horrible for about 45 minutes … all better now πŸ˜‰

Not a whole lot of grocery shopping this past week (well, today, Monday was a whole different story, but that’s on next week) … Hubby went and picked up a few things and spent maybe $25 or so? Β The pantry is showing gaps and the freezers are way more manageable! I’m actually excited about the prospect of organized freezers! Crazy, I know!

I had picked up some cauliflower and green beans earlier Monday so I riced my own cauliflower and have determined that it’s worth the extra few cents to buy is already done due to the mess πŸ˜‰ I made up 3 lunches for the week: 1 with pulled pork, cauliflower rice and green beans and 2 with thai beef (found in the freezer, wholefoods) and cauliflower rice and green beans.

So … here’s what we are looking to have this week!

Sunday – burgers (freezer) with grilled red onions and the rest of the french fries from the freezer. It was windy as heck so I pulled out the Cuisinart griddle/panini press and used that. Been a while and it was good to use it as I’m in the mode where I’m donating stuff like crazy to Goodwill! I think I’ll keep the press πŸ˜‰

Monday – this chicken breast/pepperoni/pizza sauce and cheese dish … uhm, yummm … will so share that this week! All from the freezer and pantry!

Tuesday – Taco Tuesday … beef in freezer, balance of stuff in fridge and pantry

Wednesday – Thai Pork Bowls … basically the same as this recipe πŸ˜‰ The pork is from Costco and was in the freezer, I had pulled it out late last week and it stayed frozen for a few days so we need to eat it up. I’ve got cabbage/coleslaw mix in the fridge but need to buy more/new

Thursday – leftovers and/or grilled cheese and soup

Friday – Chicken thighs most likely πŸ˜‰ with roasted broccoli … thighs in freezer, broccoli was picked up on Monday

Saturday – Hubby’s choice and I’m totally leaving it up to him πŸ˜‰
