My grocery list looks awfully short this week, which is a good thing! I pulled a chicken out of the freezer that I bought ages ago and I’m finally planning to cook it this week, so that’s contributing to 3 different dinners. And I still have random bits of things from meals I either didn’t cook when I’d planned or that were extras, so I tried to incorporate those into my meals. I feel like I’ve lost my coupon mojo lately and have spent more on groceries each of the past two weeks than I normally like, so this pared-down list should be a good normalizer.

sesame tofu
brown rice
snow peas

loaded baked potato and chicken casserole

rotini pasta with pesto
roasted cauliflower

I’m off to Rails Girls, so Andy is on his own! There should be plenty of leftovers. :-)

crockpot chicken and barley stew (I’m going to try it with the already-cooked chicken from Tuesday night!)

chicken tortilla casserole (Yep, with leftover cooked chicken!)
mixed veggies
cut-up fruit

Christmas party time! I’m making spinach-artichoke dip to bring.

Somehow the holidays have not yet felt as riddled with caloric landmines as they usually do, so I’m looking forward to the party on Saturday! Haha.

What’s on your plate this week?

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