A lot. And I had planned a new meal for every day- what was I thinking?
Luckily we had planned to eat out one day or we’d have been swimming in even more leftovers.
And the whole chicken I cooked on Thursday? Without kids eating two pieces each, we not only had enough for for Thursday, but also for chicken chef salads on Friday, chicken, feta, and pesto pizza on Saturday, and chicken-tomato pasta on Sunday. Plus I froze the bones to make chicken broth. That’s 4+ meals from one $4 chicken- whew!
Needless to say, the Sour Cream Noodle Bake will wait for another day. No way was I making a big pasta dish with leftover soup (from Monday!) still in the fridge.
Back to normal this week, though. Which I’m completely happy about- it was SO quiet around here last week…
Wednesday- Jalapeno Jelly glazed chicken, roasted potatoes and vegetables, salad
Thursday- (away track meet) Sandwiches, carrots & chips
Saturday- Burgers on Quick and Tender Homemade Buns, oven fries, carrots
Sunday- Slow-cooker pulled pork in tortillas, slaw, beans & salsa
