It’s a new week to nourish and nurture our family with food. 🙂
Since we’re trying to really save money by not eating out too often, I’ve found myself buying a few convenience foods for evenings when I’d rather do something else besides cooking. We tried some store bought, already-prepared frozen enchiladas this week, and while they were “ok,” I decided I could make them so much tastier, and with lots more chicken.
Do you feel that way when you try “prepared” foods from the grocery… that you could make it a whole lot better? It puts me in the mood to do some “freezer cooking,” to stock up with homemade prepared foods for the busy evenings, instead of frozen food from the grocery!
Here are my quick dinner ideas for the week:
Fast and Easy Chicken and Rice Soup
If you have leftover cooked chicken or canned chicken available, this soup is amazingly fast!
Sloppy Joes in a Biscuit
Grocery list: Ground beef, biscuits and sloppy Joe sauce
Cheesy Crockpot Meatball Subs
Grocery list: Cooked meatballs, pasta sauce, sub buns and Provolone cheese slices
Grocery list: Romaine lettuce, grape tomatoes, cooked chicken or turkey, avocado, bacon, blue cheese and dressing
Grocery list: Rye bread, corned beef, Swiss Cheese, Sauerkraut and Thousand Island dressing
Grocery list: Pancake ingredients and cinnamon chips
My dessert choice for this week is these Oatmeal Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars!
These delicious bars have a bottom oatmeal cookie layer, topped with melted chocolate chips, and finished off with peanut butter frosting!
