tacos- beef, pork, fish, chicken

spaghetti

quiche

omelette

burgers- beef, turkey, chicken, salmon

sausage with onions and green peppers

breakfast for dinner

quesadillas

mac and cheese with a little cubed ham steak added

chef salad

Mexican salad

cobb salad

egg, chicken or tuna salad sandwiches on roll or croissants

I like make a pork or beef roast in the crock pot day one. Prepare vegetables on the side as well.

Then shred left over roast.

Use some to make BBQ sandwiches by adding BBQ sauce and buns the next night

Then use the rest to make tacos or beef or pork fried rice the third night. .

We had fresh ravioli (bought in the refrigerator section) with marinara sauce. I added Italian sausage to the sauce. It was yummy! Add garlic bread and a salad if you want.

Marinated Make Ahead Salad

cole slaw
carrot salad
cucumber salad
potato salad
pasta salad
quinoa salad
broccoli salad

Some of these can be very easy to make with pre chopped veggies from the store and bottle dressings. Then you have a go to side for two to three days. Especially wonderful in the summer to keep you cool.

Cajun Chicken Alfredo (crockpot recipe)

Put several large chicken breasts in crockpot and season well with cajun seasoning. Cook on low for 6 hours. Shred chicken (I shred mine with my Kitchenaid mixer). Place back in crockpot with a brick of cream cheese and a can of cream of chicken soup. (Any other "cream of" soup would work as well.) Add one ring of smoked sausage. (I fry mine up first to get a little bit of texture and crunch.) Cook on low for two hours or until warm through and the cream cheese melted. Boil some penne pasta and serve the sauce over it. Top with some parmesan cheese.

This could be done stovetop as well pretty easily.

How about chicken pot pies? I serve them with fried potatoes. I do a lot of casseroles with leftover meat from dinner. Just cube it, add some cream of whatever soup, leftover gravy, cooked noodles and seasonings. Bake at 350 30-40 minutes. Casseroles are so forgiving. You can pretty much add anything and it tastes good.

Whole chicken in crockpot. Just make sure you keep the chicken off the bottom of the crock by making foil balls and resting the chicken breast side up on top of the foil balls. I stuff the chicken with chopped yellow onion,celery and carrots. Rub softened butter all over the top and then season with your favorite herbs. I also put pats of butter under the skin and inside the chicken cavity. Cook low for eight hours.

Hobos (aluminum foil meals)

*Put a hamburger patty or chicken breast on a square of aluminum foil on a cookie sheet.
*Season and top with fresh veggies of your choice. (potatos, carrots, onions are my favorite)
*Season. Opt. - top with little butter/barbecue sauce/tomato sauce/etc.
*Make a packet with foil making sure it is sealed completely.
*Bake in oven for 45 - 60 min.

Easy to make and easy cleanup. Win-win!!!!

This is what I have been doing. I look through the freezer and decide what I want to get rid of- then I search Pinterest for those recipes.

The other day I had smoked sausage and bell peppers I needed to get rid of and found a great recipe for sausage, peppers and rice. Then last night we wrapped the leftovers in crescent rolls for baked smoked sausage and pepper manapua. Todayís search is going to be something with salmon fillets. My goal is to have a totally empty fridge and freezer before I buy food again.

Basic quiche and you add the featured ingredients of your choice or in my case the leftovers I have.
