Menu Plan - April 13, 2009
Friday afternoon we discovered that our fridge freezer had been set to off, and all sorts of things were defrosting. This is one of the perils of having small children trying to pour their own milk.
As luck would have it, we store a half dozen containers of homemade broth in our freezer and this made the difference between an inconvenience and a catastrophe. The frozen blocks of broth kept the freezer cool. A few things were still frozen, a few things were defrosting and need to be eaten this week and the rest needed to be cooked, but was still good.
Our menu this week is dictated by the food that was in our upstairs freezer, and is now in our fridge, waiting to be eaten!
Oktoberfest sausages with sauerkraut, potatoes and veggies
Steak and re-heated chicken fingers (for the kids) with mashed potatoes and veggies
The chicken fingers were defrosted and had to be cooked. Too many to eat at once, but the kids love them however they get this treat!
Roasted lamb with rice pilaf (Easter leftovers) and veggies
Freezer vegetable soup, with sausage meat
Baked Pollock with mashed potatoes and veggies
This is the third week this has been on my menu. The first week we were sick, this past week the freezer problem dictated a different meal choice. Thankfully I hadn't defrosted the fish!
Beef stew with homemade rolls
