We just got back from a week-long trip, but I was amazed to find that, based on things I have in the freezer, a menu plan came together pretty easily this week! It’s tempting to skip it on weeks like this, but really when you’re settling back in is the most important time to know what’s for dinner. Trying to keep it pretty simple again, as I know work will continue to be crazy through the holidays.

Thai takeout–a last blast of vacation before the week starts!

I have to go grocery shopping after work this particular evening, so I’m making sure dinner will be easy-peasy once I get home.
frozen pizza
cut-up fruit

Planning a crockpot meal because I know I have lots of laundry to do from our trip, and that way I only have to worry about one domestic task in the evening.
Beggar’s Chowder (with chicken thighs from the freezer)
good cheese–I like to peruse the “under $5” bins at the cheese counter!

out with some friends who are in town for a few days

stir-fried pork and cabbage
frozen egg rolls (I bought these to eat with another meal awhile ago and forgot about them–whoops!)

ravioli (from the freezer)
various vegetables–will see what looks good at the grocery store

beef and bean enchiladas
chips and guacamole
frozen corn

What’s on your plate this week?

I’m linking up with Organizing Junkie’s Monday Menu Plan!
