(Hotmama cooking tip #2 - Check out this cool french fry cutter that I picked up a few months ago at Goodwill! It makes chopping up potatoes a breeze.)
So here's my menu plan for the next week:
Mon - Chicken Enchiladas
Tues - Fried potatoes with bacon and onions
Wed - Quiche
Thurs - Chicken Packets
Fri - Shredded Chicken and Bean Burritos
Sat - Potato Soup & Rolls
Sun - Spaghetti with Meat Sauce
Mon - Soft Tacos
Tues - Beef Pot Pie
I was curious about the cost of making meals ahead, so I spent a few minutes to add it up. I made 11 meals for $85. That means each meal cost $7.72, which breaks down to about $1 per person per meal. Can't beat that!
Oh yeah! I also made a double batch of chocolate chip cookies, and a batch of oatmeal cookies! I was completely done and the kitchen was clean (I started the day with an empty dish washer, and cleaned as I went along) by 5:30 pm when we sat down to eat our Enchiladas.
I AM ON FIRE and THAT is why they call me HOTMAMA! ;D
