Meal plan for the first week of January
My goals for this challenge are to clean out the cubboards and freezer and avoid throwing away food!
Saving money will be a nice side benefit, but not the primary goal. I live alone and don't always plan the best way to use up food. I don't mind freezing leftovers, but I hate forgetting that they are there until it is too late to use them. Time to inventory the freezer!
I finished off the Turkey barley soup for lunch today, and am freezing the rest of the broth. I need more protein today, so will have tuna salad for dinner, on a bed of fresh spinach.
Tuesday- Scambled egg and toast. Smoothie for snack
Pita bread pizza with homemade sauce and canadian bacon and pineapple
Big salad with turkey for dinner.
Wednesday- Steel cut oatmeal w/craisens and a smoothie for morning snack
Tuna on toast and apple/spinach salad--Making extra creamed tuna to use in casserole on friday
Broccoli, turkey and cheddar rice bake--Making extra for lunch tomorrow and to freeze for later
Thursday- Fried egg sandwich, smoothie for snack
Leftover rice bake
Twice baked potato and Salmon filet--Making extra potatoes to freeze for later meals.
Friday- Oatmeal w/apples and smoothie for snack
Big salad with turkey
Saturday--Clean up leftovers
