  3. We are still eating out of the pantry/freezer about 90% of the time. I’m also still trying to keep it simple without making it seem simple. For example, no pb&j (except for the one night when DH wasn’t here and supper was about 40 minutes before bed time) but I am using the crock pot. Salads and pizza are also relatively quick to put together but taste great.

    4. Salad
    5. Hot dogs, chips, peach slices (lunch at the park)

    1. Leftovers
    2. Omelette, muffins, sliced peaches
    3. Schnitzel, mashed potatoes, beets, steamed carrots, chocolate mousse
    4. Macaroni and cheese

  20. I’m trying to keep it simple this week as I realized there are a lot of projects started around the house, but not many completed. I adjusted my menu yesterday when I found a family pack of pork chops – they were cheaper per pound than the smaller packs. Instead of freezing the extras, I added two meals together in the middle of the week to use them fresh. This saved time on my freezing and defrosting them. The Bourbon chicken is from a seasoning packet I have, the salmon was a find yesterday that was marked down,and the cauliflower soup is in the crockpot. I think the Salad is the most complex thing on the list. 🙂

    1. Eat out
    2. Salad
    3. Breaded pork chops, rice, beets, peas
    4. Grilled Peaches and Pork
    5. Bourbon Chicken, rice
    6. Pizza

    1. Eat out
    2. Salmon, rice, steamed carrots
    3. Roasted Cauliflower Soup
