What I've got so far

Thank you Dawn for the web sites, I'll be sure to check those out and I do so LOVE Rachel Ray - I could get into that for sure!

Here is the outline of the 2 week meals I've done. Yesterday morning I boiled 6 chicken breasts and 1 lb of ground turkey. I made and froze a big pan of chicken spaghetti with some of the chicken. I got out 2 lbs of ground turkey, but ran out of time to do anything with the second pound, so now I have to go ahead and cook it and refreeze it or adjust the menu to accommodate it sooner rather than later. I haven't decided just yet.

Anyway, here's how the menu looks:
Tuesday: we had: Shake N Bake (I used the garlic and herb variety) Chicken (this is one of Luke’s favorites) I cut the chicken up into nugget size and bread them that way. It's a big hit!
Wednesday: Lasagna and salad. There's enough lasagna leftover so I froze the remainder of the pan.
Thursday: Bruschetta Chicken Bake (Kraft food and family recipe)I used 2 of the chicken breasts that I boiled on Tuesday for this.
Friday: Chicken Alfardo Pasta. This is simply the last 2 chicken breasts I boiled, some sort of pasta, and Classico Sun-dried Tomato Alfrado sauce.
Saturday: we're going to a birthday party!
Sunday: home-made pizzas.
Monday: Already made chicken spaghetti.
Tuesday: Crock Pot - Creamy Chicken & Veggies.
Wednesday: Chicken soft tacos.
Thursday: Meatball Sandwiches.
Friday: Sour Cream Enchiladas.
Saturday: we're going to spend the day at Smith Mt. Lake again!! YIPPEE!
Sunday: Parmesan Chicken (enough for my family as well as my cousin-in-law Carries family - they just had a baby!)

So we'll see how that goes, and how much of it gets rearranged and how much of it I'm able to keep on track! I'm trying to be really committed to it, as I think it'll really help us in the long run! I may in the future, try to make some more freezable things all at one time. I really like the idea of having it already done!
