Menu Plan & Freezer Cooking

This week I'm trying to focus on grocery shopping and cooking.  We've got a baby due in a few weeks here!  At this point, I'm not sure I have the energy for a full intense day of freezer cooking, so I'm trying to just make a few things each week for the next couple of weeks. 

Dinners this week involve cooking a big pack of chicken and a roast beef early in the week.  That way we can use the meat all week, and I'll have more time for cooking and baking for the freezer.  I know it will make a big difference to me to have a few dinners and baked goods saved for when the baby comes, and it will save us from spending extra money on groceries or takeout too.

cereal, poptarts, yogurt, fruit

cold cut sandwiches, frozen homemade lasanga, tuna, cheese and crackers

Mon - Baked chicken, oven fries, green beans
Tues - Mom's Portable Beef, oven fries, salad
Wed - Pesto chicken sandwiches on homemade rolls, fruit
Thurs - Beef and Chicken fajitas, corn
Fri - Homemade pizza, salad
Sat - Overnight  trip for our anniversary!
Sun - tba

Baking List:
- tortillas
- sandwich rolls

Freezer Cooking:
- 1-2 extra pizzas (make with dinner on Friday)
- peach coffee cake (with $.49/lb. peaches from Harris Teeter)
- extra loaf of sandwich bread
