Now based on what I purchased above I intend to follow the following meal plan. But first a few notes (so you don't think I am completely insane and or unable to cook a real meal)... with these groceries and meal plan I feed 3 adults (myself included)... I also work a lot of nights so most meals are quick and easy or mostly pre-made foods... and I don't really have a full kitchen right (mostly just missing a stove/oven) now as the house is in halted stages of being remodeled...So for these reasons most of my meals are made using some microwave, electric skillet, crock pot, and George Forman  (my George Forman fell and broke last week). Now on with the meal plan:



DINNERS:

Tuesday (That's tonight!)

Chicken, diced tomatoes (from last week), spinach (from stock pile), and rice (last week)
-Sautee chicken and diced tomatoes with olive oil in electric skillet. Add taco seasoning (last week), onion powder, and salt. Cook rice and spinach as directed on package. Mix spinach in with chicken and tomatoes in skillet.

Wednesday

Pot roast and mashed potatoes
-In the morning put roast in crock pot with 2 cans french onion soup (last week). Let cook all day on low. Make mashed potatoes as directed on package.


Thursday
Chilli

-In the morning, brown hamburger meat in skillet, drain, and put in crock pot. Add 4 cans stewed tomatoes (stock pile), 2 can kidney beans (need to run out and get tomorrow), 1 package frozen diced onion and peppers (need to run out and get tomorrow), and liberal amounts of chilli powder. Let cook on low all day.


Friday

Beef tips and Rice (from last week)
