What to Cook for Dinner?
This year I’m really trying to keep our food waste to a minimum. I’m trying to plan at least one meal a week to use up our vegetables and not let any go to waste. I like to make soups and stir fry to do this and this week we’ll be having chicken stir fry to make sure to use the vegetables up.
Plus we often eat our leftovers from the night before, for lunch, to make sure those leftovers don’t sit in the refrigerator and grow mold.
We’re also having soup this week because I love to make soup this time of year and it makes for an inexpensive meal. Plus soup goes well with the cold weather we have forecast for this week.
We’ll also be having glazed pork chops. These pork chops are so delicious and easy to make. We save money on pork chops by buying a full pork loin at the store, either Costco or our local grocery store, and cutting our own.
If you’ve never bought a pork loin before, see my video tutorial on how to portion a pork loin here.
Here’s our menu plan for this week,
Southwest Chicken Skillet, Salad, and Fruit
Pizza Pockets and Salad
Chicken Stir Fry and Rice
Burritos, Chips with Salsa, and Salad
Chicken Hawaiian Haystacks with Salad
Leftover Most Days
Soup and Sandwiches
