Menu Planning 4 Jan 02020

Setting up our menu plan for the coming week makes shopping go smoother, and decreases the need to go back to the store during the week.

from the under-utilized Cooking Journal

It’s raining this morning, and I get a whole day off in the snuggle-weather with my Lovely Bride, and some Comfort Food is on our minds. We have some leftover meats in the fridge (Pulled Pork and Beef Tenderloin) which will be utilized in the menu selections this week.

She is going to be out of town on business Mon-Weds this week, so I’ll be on my own…probably sandwiches or some frozen pizza!

I’ll be coming back to this post to add links to the recipes I’m using for some of the main dishes, especially if I just whip them up from nothing. Otherwise they’ll likely be from the following cookbooks:
