WFD? Week of 4/18/2011 {Weekly Meal Planning}

This week is going to be a week of revisiting and reusing. Since starting to regularly blog again (and regularly meal plan) I've found that we sometimes have too many leftovers to eat up for lunch the next day. So I'm going to start being more aware of the components of each meal to see if I can re-use a portion for the next few nights. Chicken made for one dish can go a long way through the week and add to other dishes. For example, the pesto I made last night for salmon will be re-used tomorrow for some chicken and pasta. The rest will be frozen and added to meals later on.

I really do hate wasting food and have been getting a whole lot better on realizing when I'm starting to waste more. I have even caught a few veggies that were on the verge of being "too old" and just cooked them up right away and ate them for lunch. A few weeks ago I might have just let them go to waste and thrown them away. Not anymore!

So if you see a recipe on my line up that you think I can re-use in another dish please let me know and I'll rearrange things to put it on the menu! Oh, and I totally didn't realize that the last three dinners were from the same source. I have been dying to try the meatballs & polenta but had to pass it off to this week and I really want to give the crock pot lasagna a second chance since my first pass at it didn't go so well. I'll try to mix things up next week.
