Well, I went shopping last night for the household basics, and I have to say a huge thank you to Meijer for the lovely $5 off coupon I received in the mail this weekend. Very nice. They had milk on sale pretty cheap, meaning with the coupon I got 3 gallons of milk for free! And the way we go through milk around here….well, its pretty nice when its free.
So, I’m preparing my bulk menu for May. Here’s my list:
- Spaghetti with Bolognese sauce
- Pork Pies
- Cheesy Chicken Broccoli and Rice Casserole
- Homemade frozen pizzas
- Baked Fried Chicken
- Pulled Pork
- Pork Loin
- Seafood Manicotti
Most of these dishes I’m making four meals of–meaning when I’m done I’ll have two months worth of meals. I started yesterday, spending two hours boiling sausage, grilling and chopping beef for the fajitas and assembling the packets for the fajitas, cheesy casserole and paella. I put 12 meals in the freezer in that 2 hours. That’s an average of 10 minutes per dinner. Not bad. I also managed to put away 7 mornings worth of sausages for breakfasts.
I plan on making breakfasts too…
- Blueberry Muffins
- Chocolate Chip Waffles
- Sausage/Bacon/Cheese Souffles
- Link Sausages
So, what are you cooking this week?
