This week’s menu – ham week

I decided to try something different this week and it seems to have worked well! I picked up a ham and made it on Saturday, then used the leftovers in several additional meals throughout the week. I think I could do something similar with turkey, chicken, and a beef roast and would love to do that to make my life easier in the coming months as I go back to work on Monday.

SATURDAY – Roasted ham, cheesy cottage potatoes, broccoli
SUNDAY – leftovers
MONDAY – stuffed shells, salad, garlic bread
TUESDAY – ham, green beans and potatoes
WEDNESDAY – chicken cordon bleu casserole
THURSDAY – beef stirfry
FRIDAY and SATURDAY – with family
