I have decided that planning a menu that is
1- frugal and filling for little boys
2- based on supplies in my pantry
3- low cal thus low points on my WW plan
is INCREDIBLY difficult. It's not impossible but it does require even more planning than just a weekly menu. After reviewing our budget things are gonna be tight the rest of the month so I opted to look for recipes using supplies I have already. I don't about you but that is a lot of requirements to combine. Each one can be done without much ado but the 3 together......
Well, here is what I came up with....
Ham fried rice
Oatmeal Raison Cookies
Cabbage Wraps- trying a new recipe from a co-worker
Cheesy Italian Chicken - didn't have this last week
I have been trying to bake up treats to rotate my food supply. Little boys love all sorts of treats after dinner. Plus, although they are generally good eaters and not picky I am not above adding a little incentive. he he he!
