December menus 2013

Mid month already, so time to plan the next month's upcoming dinner menus, after checking what is already on hand, which helps me to create a list of what needs to be purchased.

1-Crock Pot rotisserie whole chicken (fzn), mashed potatoes, gravy from drippings, fzn peas, whole berry cranberry sauce
2-horseradish encrusted Tilapia fillets (fzn), rice mix, fresh carrots
3-CP beef- dried kidney bean chilli, Southern style corn bread
5-baked chicken drums (fzn), brown rice (extra for Sat), butternut squash
7-cream of tomato-rice soup, grilled cheese sandwiches
8-pork chop (fzn)-stuffing bake, apple sauce, carnnival squash
9-tuna casserole, coleslaw
10-ground beef (fzn)-dried pinto tacos on soft tortillas, corn
12-hot dog (fzn sausage) casserole, green salad
14-chicken noodle soup
15-roast turkey breast (fzn), stuffing, green beans, whole berry cranberry sauce
16-turkey-dried black bean enchilladas, corn
17-CP beef stew (fzn meat)
19-pate chiniois (a French Canadian sheppard's pie) using fzn ground beef, coleslaw with apples and raisins
20-fzn homemade lasagna
21-dried tortellinis in turkey broth soup
22-baked split chicken breasts (fzn)with BBQ sauce, buttered noodles, beets
23-baked salmon fillets(fzn), brown rice, fzn peas and fresh carrots
24-tourtiere (a French Canadian meat pie)
25-baked ham (fzn)with pineapple slices, mashed potatoes, corn
26-BBQ ham meatballs, Basmati rice, green beans
28-split pea soup
29-kale(fzn)and apple-chicken sausage (fzn) Impossible pie aka crustless quiche, fruit salad
30-macaroni and cheese with ham, salad

There is little that I must buy, which is the manner in which I plan these menus out. Usual staples will have to be replenished: potatoes, carrots, fzn peas, buttermilk, salad greens, celery. I will have to buy ground pork for my meat pies, but that is it for needs. A good feeling going into a spendy season. Luckily, Christmas is paid for. All soups with the exception of the doctored up canned tomato, will be homemade weekly.
