I “shopped” my pantry for all the ingredients I had and came up with this list. Sat and Sun are either leftover nights or go out to eat nights (or Sunday dinner with the fam nights).
Here’s this week’s menu:
Monday–Parmesan Sub Panini’s
Thursday–Chicken Broccoli Casserole
Here is the shopping list:
Meat: 2-3 lbs chicken, 1/2 lbs ground beef, Deli Meat, pepperoni or sausage for pizza
Starches: Parmesan Subs, 1 1/2 cups rice, 1 lb lasagna noodles, 1 recipe pizza dough (or 2 refrigerated crusts)
Veggies: 1 green pepper, 1 tomato, 1 bag baby carrots, 1 sweet potato optional, 1 small zucchini optional, 1 lb frozen broccoli
Dairy: 3-6 cups mozzarella cheese, deli cheese, 1/2 c ricotta cheese, 1 cup sour cream, 1-2 cups cheddar cheese, 1 egg, 1/4 cup milk,
Canned Goods: pickles, sandwhich peppers, 2 cans spaghetti sauce, 1 can diced tomatoes, 1 can cream of chicken soup, 1 can pineapple for pizza
Fruit: 1 mango optional
Seasonings: Italian Seasoning, garlic salt, pepper, bbq sauce, mayo, chicken bouillon, basil pesto optional but delish, curry I buy Golden Curry sauce mix. It’s a curry paste instead of pwd and it is AWESOME and cheap, cumin, flour, minced garlic at least 1 whole head of fresh garlic or I buy pre-minced and you need about 3-4 tsps for this week.
