This Week’s Meal Plan – Week Three

This Week’s Meal Plan – Week Three

I need to learn to either cook less or to have one night a week (other than Sunday) to be leftover night. Last week I did not make the Eggplant Parmesan as the fridge was full of leftovers. I now have Pasta Fagiole in the freezer, enough for another meal for everyone.

This week, on Wednesday, I have Chicken Pot Pie on the menu – I am using the chicken that I cooked in the chicken soup for last Shabbat. This cuts down on cost. Which is part of the whole point of meal planning.

I still have two eggplants in the fridge that I have to use up – I think I will make a babaganoush for Shabbat next week with them. Here is the plan, followed by the shopping list.

Monday: Jazzed Up Mac & Cheese  with Sliced Up Veggies and Chummus

Tuesday: Slow Cooker: Veggie Curry and Rice

Wednesday: Chicken Pot Pie with Mashed Potatoes

Thursday: Tofu Stir Fry

Shabbat: Soup, Fish, ChallahCoq au vin plus Grilled Chicken,  Firecracker Quinoa Salad w/ Chickpeas & Artichokes (leave out the feta), Potato Kugel / Rice / Drunken Sweet Potatoes , Babaganoush, Deconstructed Chocolate Cake. Shabbat Lunch: Deli Sandwiches, Coleslaw, Pickles.

    I hope the eggplant stays okay in the fridge for this shabbos babaganoush. I’ve tossed plenty unfortunately.
