      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.


      Breakfast:Pancakes with fruit topping (uses up frozen berries)
      Lunch:Homemade tortillas with peanut butter and raisins (uses up raisins)
      Dinner:Pork Chops, Sweet Potatoes, and greens (uses up greens)
      Dessert:carrot cookies (uses up, what else, carrots)


      Breakfast:Applesauce Oatmeal (uses up applesauce)
      Lunch:Grilled Cheese sandwiches (uses up velveeta)
      Dinner:Pork Fried Rice
      Dessert:Strawberry Shortcake (uses up frozen strawberries, baking mix, and whipped topping)


      Breakfast: Biscuits and Fruit (uses up fruit)
      Lunch:Corn Tortilla Chips with refried beans and salsa (uses up salsa and corn tortillas)
      Dinner:Crockpot Chicken and veggies (uses up chicken)
      Dessert: Homemade Bagels


      Breakfast: Oatmeal
      Dinner: Pizza (uses up cheese)
      Dessert: Banana Splits

      Wow! This menu sounds delicious!!! Could you share your recipes for strawberry shortcake & crockpot chicken & veggies? Thanks so much! 🙂

      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.
