Overachiever!


I am trying something new this time. I came up with 2 weeks worth of dinners and I am just going to pick each day from the list. That way there isn't a meal assigned to a specific day - it just seems that it wasn't working too well that way. So, here you go!

*Crockpot Brown Sugar Chicken

*Stroganoff (with tofu instead of ground meat) with Green Beans

*Nasty Nachos (with lentils instead of ground meat)

*Red Beans & Rice

*Tuna Casserole with Garlic Bread and a veggie

*Meatloaf (with real meat!) with Crash Hot Potatoes

*Tacos (with lentils) with seasoned tater tots (like Taco John's!)

*Crockpot Chicken Soup

*Oven-baked Corn Dogs with slaw (Rachael Ray recipe from 365: No Repeats)

*Banana Pancakes with Bacon & Eggs (We had this last night, but without eggs...we were out!)

*Buffalo Chicken Wings with Fried Pickles (copycat Hooter's meal!)

*Tater Tot Casserole with Green Beans

*Veggie Burgers with Potato Wedges


Since we've been cutting out a lot of meat lately, I've been forcing myself to eat beans. It's tough! I've never liked beans (probably because of an incident in my childhood when I stuck a kidney bean up my nose...that's all we'll say about that), but they are a great replacement for meat and they're so healthy. Red beans and rice will really be a stretch for me. But it doesn't get much healthier (or more frugal!) than that.

This is what my mom has done for ages...the two week plan...and it is great. You pick in the morning and less stress. Also the crash hot potatoes are deadly.

Let me know how switching to beans goes for you. I don't like beans (unless they're green), but would love to be more frugal and healthy at the same time. Good luck and I hope Jack feels better. Kelly Gentz
