Update on Menus

I have slacked this week. Actually I made a menu, I was just a little embarrassed to post it because it involved lots of frozen leftovers, etc. I did make a few of the things from last week's menu to catch up because we had to change some days. These were the recipes that really stood out to us and we will definitely make again: Thai Red Curry, Spicy Chicken Chipotle Pasta, and Maple Glazed Salmon. These were a total hit at our house. I also made this TGI Friday's Bruschetta Chicken Pasta for Steve's family last week and it was AWESOME! I love when new recipes work out!
Our theme this week and last is to use things that we already have in order to keep the grocery bill lower. We try to always have frozen chicken and ground beef on hand and have been lucky enough to have Steve's dad supply us with yummy salmon from his fishing ventures. Since we have those staples we can easily adapt our recipes to be pretty cheap if necessary.
Still struggling with side dishes. If you have suggestions I am listening! Here is this week's menu: (keeping in mind family is coming and this will probably change)

French Bread Pizza
From My Food Storage Deals
Green Salad

Corn Chile Chowder (freezer meal)

Wednesday-Our sad tribute to St Patrick's Day
Broccoli Chicken Casserole ( has green in it!)

We love to stuff our burgers with cheddar cheese and crumbled bacon before we cook them. Yum!

Our favorite roast and mashed potatoes!
*Meat was on sale a couple of weeks ago so I bought several roasts for only a couple of dollars a piece. They keep really well in the freezer and are nice to have when you want a nice dinner or you have company coming.
