use it up menu 4/27 - 4/30

This is my menu for Monday through Thursday of this week. It's a weird one because I am trying to use up random things in the house. All meals are served with fruits and veggies, even if I don't add them on the menu. I don't plan those. I just pick them at dinnertime or whatever. Monday:

4/2, 4/3, cake, carrot, cheese, chicken, cookies, crockpot, delicious, easy, menu, recipe, recipes, share, shortcake, sounds, strawberry, use it up, veggies, wow, fruit, frozen, raisins, breakfast, salsa, dessert, oatmeal, dinnerpork, greens, tortillas, topping, thursday, monday, velveeta, sandwiches, baking, fried, rice, dessertstrawberry, strawberries, lunchgrilled, carrots, tuesday, applesauce, breakfastapplesauce, whipped, bagels, homemade, 4/27, lunchleftovers

    Thank you. Neither one is really a recipe, though. For the chicken, I stick a chicken and whatever veggies I like, season it, add broth, and cook all day. For the shortcakes, I make biscuits, top with cut up strawberries and whipped cream. Easy-peasy.
