  1. We are in freezer clean-out mode too, and like you we’ve come across a meal that just didn’t work out in the freezer. But you have to try..

    I couldn’t manage to trick my raised-on-a-beef-farm husband into eating more vegetarian meals – he’d flat out revolt. One or occasionally two meals a week without meat is the limit for him. I’ll take what I can get. Like you said, it helps cut down on the food budget.

    1. Yes, Heidi, it’s true – every bit does help on the food budget.
      I’m almost thinking about actually cleaning – or at least wiping down – my freezer since it’s so empty right now. I’ve never done it and now’s the time before the summer harvest begins.
      Thanks, Heidi!


    1. So true, EFB! And yes, it is. I forget to point that out but that is the other reason we do it.
      I admit that I’m looking forward to dinner tonight. It involves roasted organic chicken that was on sale at New Season’s recently. And, of course we’ll be having it in some sort of leftover way tomorrow.
      Thanks, Erin!

    Since you have previously written that Week 52 will be the last of your Weekly Meal Plans, I am suggesting that you compile all, with recipes, into a printable e-cookbook. At least that way your readers could print all for use, or pick and choose which weeks they would prefer to try.

    My imagination for meals ran dry this week. We had very plain meals, not worth sharing.


    1. Karen, great idea about the ebook. I keep wanting to put something together but never seem to get to it.
      What I’m thinking I may try is to post once a month about meals we’ve eaten. That way, it’s still there. We’ll see….I have so many ideas and so little time!
      Thanks for the excellent idea and I find it hard to believe that you had plain meals.


  3. Since my mom was diagnosed with cancer, we are in need of weekly menu plan for her. That’s the only way we make sure she eats right balanced diet with little variations everyday.

    1. Cristina,
      I’m sorry to hear about your mom’s diagnosis. Yes, keep her eating right. That’s how meal plans can help us all stay on the right healthy track.
      Thanks for leaving a comment.

    How do you cook your pinto beans and rice? I’m always trying to incorporate more meatless meals and would love to try this but have never had it before.


    1. Hi Sarah,
      I cook them separately the first night. Today, we had them mixed together for lunch/breakfast. I have made them together before but usually I make the beans and then freeze and add them to a meal. Last night for example, we had pinto beans and leftover pulled pork (mixed together) over brown rice with fresh tomato salsa. Wow! My stomach just grumbled thinking about it.
      Beans are a great non-meat meal and really fill up bellies. Good luck, Sarah! Let me know how it goes…
