We are coming off a gluttonous few days of holiday eating, so I’m excited to get back into meal planning! Since we had quite a bit of leftover ham, I’m trying to use up the rest of it in this week’s meals. It’s a great way to save some money AND not waste food (did you know that an average household throws away about $640 of food each year, some up to $2200 per year?!).
That said, I have a feeling we will be taking a break from ham after this week 🙂
Monday: Ham and Potato Soup made with our leftover Christmas Eve ham and some extra potatoes I had when I prepped the Potatoes Au Gratin. My youngest has been really into soup lately, so this should be a hit!
Tuesday: Creamy Tomato Tortellini Soup with a garden salad and garlic bread.
Wednesday: Western Frittata. The boys will eat anything that resembles breakfast for dinner, so this frittata is a great way to use up holiday dinner leftovers too!
Thursday: Hawaiian pizza with ham, pineapple chunks and pizza blend of cheeses. I like to use the pizza flatbreads you can purchase in the bakery section of the grocery store, though we got a new pizza pan for Christmas, so there’s a good chance I’ll buy some dough and roll it out.
Friday: One Pot Spicy Thai Noodles with salad. This dish sounds DELICIOUS. The only changes I plan to make are to swap carrots for the mushrooms (since no one in our family likes mushrooms!) and maybe pea pods for the zucchini. I want to love zucchini, but I just can’t make it happen! 🙂
