Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween from Tinkerbell! ;)

Menu Planning and Freezer Cooking!

I have decided after a week full of last minute planning and cooking dinners that have totally stressed me out, that I am going to join all the wonderful and well-prepared momma's out there who do the smart meal planning for the week and spend a day doing a few freezer meals that I can just comfortably pop in the oven when I am too busy to cook and to send over to my Dads house so he can enjoy some of the goodies too!

So, here is my tentative plan for the week so far, Recipes are clickable too, for the most part - if you want the recipe :)

Freezer Ideas:
Breakfast: Breakfast Burritos , Baked Oatmeal, Breakfast Muffins (but add blueberries!)
Lunch: Beef and Bean Burritos, Homemade Uncrustables

Snacks + Desserts: Bananas, grapes, apples, Nestle Cookies (that I got on B1G1 with q's ;)),

Thursday – Chicken Parmigiana
Friday- Sweet and Sour Chicken, white rice, green beans
Saturday- White Chicken Chili, Sliced Tomatoes, corn
Sunday- Mexican Lasagna (Minus olives, or Chris may die!)
Monday- Southwest Chicken Wraps (Also part of freezer cooking!), Broccoli and Fresh Fruit
Tuesday- Leaving myself a leftover night :)
Wednesday- Black Beans and Rice, Sliced Tomatoes, Cornbread
