Save, save, save! That’s my motto for the week.

M- Pancakes, Scrambled Eggs, Oranges

T- Chicken Nachos w/ Black Beans and Corn

W- Shepherd’s Pie, Homemade Biscuits

Th- BBQ Sandwiches, Green Beans, Mac & Cheese

F- Taco Soup (posting recipe soon… it’s one that doesn’t use packets of taco seasoning or ranch seasoning!)

Weekends are up in the air around here right now with it being Christmas season! I’ve got 2 cups of frozen, cooked shredded chicken in the freezer for the nachos. Rob’s dad got us a smoked boston butt that I froze and it will be great for sandwiches this week! I love thinking ahead and having these kinds of things on hand… though it doesn’t always happen!!

I’m planning on making these Orange Muffins for snacks/breakfasts too. Last week I made some yummy banana bread! I really had gotten out of making yummy homemade snacks and breakfasts. The boys just loved the banana bread! And it was so healthy! So, I’ve got to get back to having those kinds of things around!

What are you having?
