January Meals

Our grocery budget has been out of control the last couple of months so I’m being forced back into meal planning.  It’s not the funnest activity in the world but it is helpful to keep costs under control.  Obviously, I’ll be making additional meals this month but those will be simple and recipe free (i.e. tacos, hamburgers, spaghetti and a couple delicious easy Trader Joe’s meals).

A couple of these recipes are tried and true but most are new.  We’ll see how they turn out.  In case you’re wondering about the freezer meals I made last month they did the job but the crock pot isn’t for me.  I used it once or twice but in the end I decided to thaw the meals and bake them in the oven.

  1. Grown-Up Grilled Cheese
  2. Lazy Pizza Dough Pizza
  3. Beef Stew and Potato Dumplings
  4. Bruschetta Chicken
  5. Asian Pork Tacos – Ironically this is a crock pot recipe I love!
  6. Mushroom Stroganoff
  7. Tuna Noodle Casserole
  8. Chicken & Brown Rice Soup
  9. Mini Vegetable Pot Pies
