Menu Plan Monday

I always do a quick inventory of what we have in the fridge/freezer/pantry to plan the week's meals. This week the list to work from included:
dry beans
91/2 dozen farm eggs from a dear lady at church!
2 gallons milk
ricotta cheese
cake mix/icing
in the freezer:
2.5 pounds of cooked ground turkey
1 pound of cooked italian turkey sausage
pork roast
whole chicken
I also take notice of staples that we need. On the list this week:
unbleached flour
cornbread mix
bran flakes
Now I just plug in the menu list accordingly. The forecast the first three days of the week includes lots of cold rain-y weather. So I'm taking advantage of a couple more soup days before it gets warmer!
B- Chocolate chip muffins
early dinner-stuffed shells, green salad, rolls
desert-Peeps Sunflower Cake

B-Baked oatmeal, bananas, walnuts
L-potato soup
D- quiche
Put chicken in the crock pot to cook

B- granola cereal, milk
L-fried egg sandwiches, grapes
D-chicken noodle soup
(freeze half of the chicken from the whole cooked chicken)

B- granola or cheerios, milk, bananas
(boil 2 dozen eggs for lunch/ friday breakfast)
L-egg salad sandwiches, grapes
D-Baked Penne with Italian Sausage

B-boiled eggs, toast
L- green salad, leftover pasta
D-dinner with family, bring corn, and rolls or biscuits
