Weekly menu

Posted by moderndaygourmet on September 12, 2007

This is really for next week, but I am not too busy at work today, so I put this together. I’m on a quest to finish up food we have in the house, as much as possible. This will require very little shopping. I’ve given myself a “freezer and pantry challenge” to use food that we already have, to reduce waste and save money besides.

Chicken piccata, egg noodles, green peas (chicken piccata is pre-made from Sams and is in the freezer)
Pork chops (preparation TBD), rice, broccoli (pork chops in the freezer we need to use)
Soft tacos or enchiladas (have some seasoned taco meat in the freezer)
Smoked chicken/corn chowder (again, waiting in the freezer, do we see a theme here?)
Almond tilapia, baked potatoes, green beans (fish in the freezer)
Grilled catfish, grilled corn, grilled zucchini (once again, big bag of fish from Sams in the freezer)

I should only need to buy fresh produce: broccoli, corn, zucchini, potatoes, green beans (might use canned). And tortillas for the taco/enchilada night. Maybe an avocado if they are on sale.
