This week is a light shopping week, since I still have groceries from last week that I can use. The weather has been hot, so a couple of slow cooker meals, and easy, short cooking time recipes are in order.
The item that I am planning around is ‘Free From’ whole chickens – I have these on hand. Here is the plan so far:
Monday: Fusilli with Sausage, salad and veggies
Tuesday: Stir Fry (using veggies I have on hand), chicken and rice
Wednesday: Pasta Fagioli (I use the Olive Garden version – it is really good!). I can do this in the slow cooker.
Thursday: Homemade Pizza (using frozen dough I made ahead of time)
Friday: Ziti Bake – I have been using this recipe for years, and it is always a hit.
Sunday: Most Tender Chicken, potatoes, veggie and salad – this method of cooking chicken really works well. I was worried it would be underdone – but it hasn’t ever not worked. Test with a meat thermometer just to be sure.
Stay cool everyone! Have a great week!
