We’ve had some major things going on recently, good and bad, but also bank account draining. When we were lower on the pay scale, I always did menus because I needed to watch money closely. I’m going to start doing this again, at least for a few months to build up again.
To start, I went way back to my older blogs (that are all consolidated here) and I pulled up some of those yummy, less expensive recipes. I’ll update the blog/add recipes if I change anything, I may take some new pictures since Kaelyn & Halie are SO TINY in the old ones! Watch for updates! Until then, Here is the menu for the next 7 days, linked to my original posts. One will be different, because I’m turning my stuffed bell peppers into a soup because I’m in NC and this hurricane is yelling “Soup weather!” at us this week. So this menu is 5 yummy meals of soup, stew, and heartiness!
I was playing around and wanted something sweet. I added chocolate ships to make it feel like a cheat 🙂 These “cookies” bake in the exact shape they hit the baking sheet in, so don’t expect them to spread. They are a nice little 1 pt snack per bite sized piece. They also hold 1.5g protein & 1g fiber in its tiny deliciousness!
2 bananas (0)
1 cup quick oats (12)
1/4 c peanut butter (10)
1/4 c chocolate chips (8)
Preheat oven to 350
Place all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until well blended.
Drop by rounded tablespoons onto a nonstick baking sheet.
Bake for 15 minutes.
So, DH loves meat & potatoes.. who can blame him! I so sat down today with our traditional Shepherd’s Pie recipe today and broke it down to make it MyPP friendly. It came out amazing and makes HUGE portions!
My 5PP dinner!
My PP recipes will read like this in the ingredient list “Ingredient (total points plus score for that amount of ingredient)” so “1/4 cup nonfat sour cream (1)” means that there is one whole point in 1/4 cup fat free sour cream while “16 oz boneless skinless chicken breast (12)” means that whole pound has 12 points. This way, you can break it down with a lower point ingredient if you need to meet your daily allowance.
2 large potatoes, approximately 1 pound after peeling, and cut into 2-inch pieces (11)
1/4 cup nonfat sour cream (1)
1 tablespoon reduced-calorie margarine (2)
1/8 teaspoon table salt (0)
the filling bubbling away
1/4 c water (0)
1 cup onion, chopped (2)
2 ribs celery, diced
2 cups frozen peas & carrots (0)
16 oz boneless skinless chicken breast, diced small, or use a ground poultry (12)
