Dinner (C.O.R.N) Clean Out Refrigerator Night!
I make up muffins and keep them in the freezer for quick breakfasts. Same with the breakfast burritos. My Chicken and Noodle Soup is already portioned and frozen as well as the Pasta and Spaghetti Sauce. The chicken for the Quick Chick Trick is already cooked and cut up and in the freezer. This will thaw quickly for going into the casserole. The Lean Pockets and Hamburger Helper are here because they were on sale and I had coupons! Yay coupons! By planning my menus around sales I can save a lot of money on my grocery bill. Planning my meals saves us from those quick trips to the store or the drive-through for dinner and spending more than we should.
