meal menu- the Clean Out the Pantry edition

Tonight (Shmoo has a bowling-and-pizza party with her hockey team after her afternoon practice)- whole wheat spaghetti, no-salt tomato sauce with added Italian spices, all-natural frozen meatballs (Gracie doesn't eat meat or anything red, so she will have olive oil, parmesan, and parsley on her spaghetti)

Sunday (we'll be getting home right at dinner time from Shmoo's hockey game about two hours away)- roast pork, onions, potatoes, and carrots in the crockpot (the girls will eat the veggies with some cheese)

Monday (we need a quick supper before Shmoo's evening game)- in the morning I'll start a pot of broth from last night's leftovers, turn it into a pork-and-barley stew, and serve it alongside some fresh homemade bread (I will make a small separate pot of soup for the girls with no meat, and add some frozen edamame right before serving)

Tuesday- two pans of vegetarian lasagna made with fresh whole wheat lasagna sheets, frozen chopped spinach, cottage and ricotta cheeses (one pan with salt-free tomato sauce overtop)

Wednesday- baked potatoes with toppings (grated cheddar, sour cream, green onions, leftover spinach)

Thursday- steak fajitas and a fresh romaine salad (the girls will just have a Big Salad with some added nuts and seeds for protein)

Friday- chicken (cheese for Gracie) on fresh homemade buns with leftover salad

The only purchases I will have to make for this week's suppers are cheese, green onions, and whole wheat tortillas (for the fajitas).
