Menu Plan Monday: Week of January 4

After several weeks away from routine (thank God for holidays and breaks!), I'm back to menu planning.  I'm starting to stock the freezer with ready-to-heat meals, but at the moment they're all similar:  eggplant parm, eggplant rollantini, and cheese manicotti.  So we'll be eating those, about one a week, while I try to get some different (non-cheesy) meals in the freezer.

Monday:  Eggplant rollantini (I didn't make this, but this is how it's done) with pasta and bread
Tuesday:  Balsamic chicken, baked potatoes, green beans
Wednesday:  Chicken-orzo soup (this recipe is new for me) and bread
Thursday:  Pizza with pepperoni, peppers, and onions
Friday:  Kidney bean soup with ham

  1. Hi Melissa :)
    Thanks for stopping by my humble little blog. I have been doing freezer cooking for several years now and I find it to be a lifesaver. Feel free to contact me (via blog or e-mail) anytime with questions you might have and I will be glad to share what I know....along with yummy recipes!

  2. You have a great looking menu! :D The rollatini sounds especially yummy! :D

  3. Melissa, I love your recipes. I just found you on org junkie- love that site. I try to post there each week as well.

    I am going to have to try that Balsamic Chicken recipe. I wonder if it would convert easily to the crockpot? Ever tried it that way?

    I too welcome back the routine, but needed the holiday break. We have 5 boys, so life is very go, go, go!

    Welcome back structure and routine. Gosh I missed you!
