The Homemaker Plans Meals For the Week: June 10-16


Gathered Fragments:

Mashed Potatoes (about 1.25 cups)

French Fries (1/2 cup)

1/2 loaf raisin bread

scant portion of grated cheddar cheese


24 ounces cottage cheese 

1 cup Mac and cheese

Fried Chicken (4 pieces)

1 cup Creole Green Beans

2 servings Blueberry Cobbler

1/2 very large mushy tomato

sprouted potatoes

1 boiled egg

Pepperoni Pizza (3 slices)

The pizza, mac n cheese will go into lunches.  Raisin bread will turn into French toast for breakfast.  


Saturday:  Pepperoni Pizza

Sunday:   Gramma's Fried Chicken, Creole Green Beans, Mashed Potatoes with Gravy, Mac n Cheese.  I used a portion of the mushy tomato in the creole green beans.

Monday:  Fried Green Tomatoes with Remoulade Sauce, Cottage Cheese Quiche.  The rest of the cottage cheese will likely go into the freezer, unless John expresses interest in for lunch.

Tuesday:  Southwestern Chicken Soup, Salad.   Here I hope to use some of the chicken, the rest of the tomato, possibly topping portions with the avocado.

Wednesday:  Pork Chops, Hash Brown Casserole, Peas.  I can use the last of the fries in the potato casserole along with a portion of the sprouted potatoes.  I'll try to cut away enough of each sprout to plant those.  And I'll just go on and dice and put in water in the fridge any extra potatoes.  We can certainly use them up in the next week. 

Thursday:  Sirloin Patties,  potato cakes, Broccoli with Cheese.  Mashed potatoes will become potato cakes.

Friday:  Spaghetti, Pasta, Garlic Cheese Biscuits, Salad.  My usual easy cook, easy clean-up Friday evening meal.
