I have the next few days planned, pretty much by accident. We're having LO Chicago pizza with salad for supper tonight, Husby can have the last of that tomorrow for lunch, then Reuben sandwiches for supper tomorrow and probably Sunday, too. We like to keep it simple on the weekends.
I have to get some more WW meals in the freezer soon. I'm already running low again. I'm planning to make Vietnamese Pork Ball Soup and some more chimichangas, for sure, and probably some other kind of soup, plus chili. All WW recipes, of course. I love soup during cold weather. I'm down almost ten pounds since 1/1 so I'll be sticking with the plan that's been working, and that means having a nice selection of WW meals ready and waiting when I'm too hungry to cook.

I got the pork ball soup made and it's so good, like always. It's been a favorite for a long time.
Dog food is done, and I just finished up the chili. I modified the recipe so will have to recalculate points. I hope they go down and they might because I added more veggies. Chili is one of those foods that always appeals, so it's good to have some on hand especially in cold weather.
Still have to make Husby's frozen breakfasts, but not today. Maybe tomorrow. That'll be buttermilk pancakes, Little Sizzlers sausages, and scrambled eggs. I thawed out the buttermilk so now I have to use it. :)
If the grocery ads come today I can start on next week.

I'm down to one bowl of WW soup left in the freezer, so I guess I'll be doing something about that soon. It's time to make dog food again already, too.

Things have been fluid and I got away from posting, but going to try and get back into it. I just updated my freezer inventory, marking off everything we've used up since my January surgery. Aside from 2 packs of chicken breast, 1 pack of steaks and a couple rotisserie chickens we've been eating off the stockpile. This will continue.
All of the meats come out of the freezer stockpile. Vegs depend on what's on sale, probably asparagus and brussels sprouts. I have cabbage for the slaw, plus cauliflower, a broccoli kale salad mix, carrots, and zucchini on hand.

I'm going through some of our older camping recipes, from back before we were eating healthier stuff when we're away from home. I ran some recipes through WW's recipe builder yesterday and found that many of the recipes will work with my WW plan with a few changed. I don't make untried recipes while we're traveling because I don't have a full pantry for back-up in case something doesn't work out, so I need to test the newly improved recipes at home. But I don't want to wait too long to do it. I decided I'm going to make the recipes up and freeze the ones that will freeze. I like this idea because I need to get some WW meals into the freezer anyway. This way I can kill two birds with one stone, not that I'm in the habit of killing birds.
That's the extent of my meal planning, except for the dog food that's in progress. I'd hear about it if I didn't get their meals ready!

Went through the fridge and freezer this morning and this is what I found:
Will have to make a run for bread, vegetables and other basics in a day or two.

Burritos - going to make my own shells today for the first time.
Got a ham out to thaw. I'll bake it tomorrow and throw some potatoes in the oven too.
Got a broccoli rice chicken casserole out of the freezer for supper.

Loose plan for the next week: tonight is mexican chicken salad roll-ups, corn; Sat: chili w/ ground turkey, corn bread; Sun: pizza; Mon: spanish rice w/ leftover chicken added; Tues: crock pot potato soup w/ ham bone thrown in; Wed: pasta & pesto; Thurs: leftovers or salad

Loose plan: Sat- pesto & pasta, Sun- meat loaf & potato salad (bake bread also), Mon- (hubby late) leftovers, Tues- pork loin on the grill & baked potato, Wed- chef salad (eggs & cheese), Thurs- chicken legs in crock pot, Fri- leftovers, Sat- burgers & corn.
Can you tell I have a lot of potatoes to get rid of? I think I am going to bust the grocery budget also.

Some deviations from menu plan last week but no problem. This week: beef stew (still using potatoes), chicken (frozen) in the crock pot to use with tortillas, pasta w/ fresh tomato topping, soup from the freezer. (Freezer is way too full.) Saturday we are having guests and hubby has some elaborate menu planned.:vs_shocked:
07-31-2017, 08:09 PM
Tuesday-Sunday: leftover chicken & rice; fajitas; crock pot pork chops & stuffing (new recipe to try); burgers & corn, lasagne. Hubby will be late Thursday so I'll just have salad or a sandwich.
I think I need to try making pasta sauce with all these tomatoes. Not really my thing but it would take less freezer space.
