Menu Plan Monday (*a-hem* or Tuesday), Week of July 27, 2009

This is technically more of a Meal Plan Tuesday post since I'm getting it up so late; we had a quick dinner of Tacos on Monday night since I was still getting through all the fun of unpacking from BlogHer.

I am happy to report that all the dinners I pre-cooked and froze last week during my Double Duty Dinners cooking week were totally gone from my freezer; the kiddos and Knute ate 'em up while I was gone. Double duty cooking (or consolidated cooking or once a month cooking - whatever you want to call it) really helps me to plan ahead to help get dinner on the table during my busiest weeks.

This week, I'm keeping it easy and cooking up what's hanging out in my freezer and veggie drawer since I don't plan on Krogering until Thursday (although I've already grabbed about $10 of fruit and milk at Walmart).

Hop on over to the linkeroony at Meal Plan Monday hosted by Orgjunkie.com to drop your meal plan post and surf the links for ideas!


Smoked Sausage and Zucchini Saute over rice

  1. I am so glad I am not the only one behind!

    Not sure I met you at BlogHer, but saw from Org Junkie that you were roomies with Tricia from @onceamonthmom. Sounds like we might have been in the same foodie panel - recession cooking.

    Great to meet you online!

  2. Gudrun: I think the interwebz had a big hiccup on Monday since we're all so behind from BlogHer!

    I missed that session - I think I was in the business session during that time. Wish we had met - Tricia is wonderful.

    Glad to meetcha - I'll come visit soon!

  3. Sloppy dogs look really cool, thanks for sharing!
