Finally, after humming and hawing over how to do a meal plan post, I decided that I'd share one single post at the end of the month sharing a plan of some or most of the meals we made for that month. I figured, if nothing else, that I could refer back to it when I felt stuck with food ideas. I tend to cook meals most days, but about once or twice a week we'll either eat leftovers or go out, so this is pretty much all the meals I made this month.
I'm also a big proponent of food storage, but having it isn't really enough. You have to use it and cycle through it or it will have gone bad when you actually do need it. I typically use a can of something every dinner, whether it's cranberry sauce served with the poppy seed chicken casserole, beans as a side dish, adding canned pineapple to a frozen pepperoni pizza (amazing), or marinating my chicken in canned enchilada sauce.
Poppy seed chicken casserole
Steak, baked potatoes, grilled veggies

I'm hoping to gradually add recipes to the blog, so if there's any particular recipe you're curious about, let me know and I'll make it a priority.
