In the Kitchen with Linda & Dinner Menu

I haven’t planned out a menu for several weeks. Getting ready for Christmas, helping my married daughter move out of state, and sickness, have prevented it. I haven’t even taken any food pictures! *gasp*


After checking the fridge, freezer, & pantry, I filled in each day’s dinner using the daily plan below. I already had all the week for this weeks dinners in the freezer. I have fresh lettuce & tomatoes for Taco night, along with potatoes & carrots for Friday, but the rest of the vegetables I will use this week are in the freezer, including greens beans that I froze myself last summer, and the potato wedges. I may used some canned vegetables in tonight’s soup. Or I may use frozen. I’ll see what I feel like using when I assemble the soup. lol I canned the homemade applesauce, so I just need to pull the jar out of the pantry.


Thankfully, it’s going to be an easy week in the kitchen!

Hopefully, I’ll have lots of pictures to share next week!

  1. I’m in “use what we have” mode, too. In fact, I am doing my usual “no buy January”. I allow $25 a week for dairy and fresh produce but otherwise I use what I have on hand. It’s a good way to save some money after Christmas and it helps clear space in my freezer and pantry.

    It sounds like you had a busy holiday! Hope the illness has gone. I followed you here from I’m an Organizing Junkie. I’d love to have you visit me on Life With Dee. I’m starting something new this year – monthly themes. January will be organization and productivity. Have a beautiful week!
