Menu for the Week

Tonight we are having spicy sweet potato soup, biscuits and salad. (I left out the tomatoes, cumin and lime juice/zest because we didn't have those items.)

Update: This was a new recipe for us. Mr. Honey had two helpings and said it is one of his new all-time favorite soups. The other two are Alsatian vegetable soup and Smashing Pumpkin soup.

Our menu for the rest of the week--

Sunday (lunch at church): Roast chicken, rice, peas and salad.

Monday: Caribbean beans and rice from the More With Less Cookbook-- needs time, not attention! and carrot sticks.

Tuesday: Crockpot Santa Fe Chicken from the Flylady website, rice* and salad

Wednesday: Beans and cornbread, sauteed zucchini, salad. (I have a meal's worth of beans frozen in the freezer from the last time I made beans.)

Thursday: Leftovers/clean out the fridge. If there isn't much to clean out, we will have breakfast for supper!

Friday: Crockpot chicken spaghetti, green beans, salad.

I got some all-natural boneless skinless chicken breasts from Sprouts yesterday for 1.99 a pound. Those form the base for my meat meals (except for Sunday, which includes a run-of-the-mill whole roasting chicken from Walmart). I need to buy carrots, a block of cream cheese, a head of lettuce, frozen green beans and three cans of tomato sauce.

Another update: That's a lot of rice. We only eat brown rice, so I am going to prepare it this weekend and store it in the fridge. I tend to forget I need to make rice until the last minute, and brown rice takes awhile. It will be easier on me this week if I make it up ahead of time.
