Menu Plan Monday: Week of Oct 10, 2016

It's been a while since I've actually planned my menu for the week, but the good news is that I have been cooking a lot. I've always been a fan of freezer meals, but in the last two months, I've been making a TON of freezer meals because a close family member has a new baby and I've been stocking their freezer for them. In the process, I've discovered new techniques and recipes that have ignited not just a fandom but a passion for freezer cooking.

This week, I'm planning to use the $5/$20 meat purchase Target coupon to make Brown Sugar Meatloaf and White Chicken Chili for the freezer, along with some Apple Crisp and Short Ribs. If you're interested in learning more about freezer cooking, I highly recommend New Leaf Wellness as a great resource.

Here's my plan for this week, including several meals from the freezer:

Monday - Slow Cooker Cocktail Meatballs, some kind of vegetable

Tuesday - Ruth Reichl's Savory Sweet Pasta

Wednesday - Slow Cooker Kalua Pork {I season the pork roast before freezing; after I thaw it overnight, all I have to do in the morning is dump it into the slow cooker!}, sauteed cabbage, rice

Thursday - Freezer Club Sandwiches, chips, fruit {I'll make extra for the freezer too}

Friday - Miso Ramen

Saturday - Breakfast for Dinner {pancakes, bacon, fruit}

Sunday - Leftovers
