This is going to be an ultra-busy week! This coming Saturday is AdaFest, the huge music festival our town puts on. We are on the organizing committee and in charge of the music. I also do a lot of the social media marketing. We’ve put in countless hours and I’m really excited about it. And exhausted – ha! This week’s menu features easy meals, as you might expect.
I’ve got a small sliced ham in the freezer. Mondays are always busy days for me so an easy meal is a good plan. I’m also still working on clearing out the freezer.
- ham (in the Instant Pot)
- baked beans
- corn on the cob
- baked apples
Another meal using up things on hand. I’ve got grass fed beef in the freezer, along with corn tortillas. I’ve also got a carton of organic refried beans, as well as chips and salsa in the pantry.
- grass fed beef tacos
- refried beans
- chips and salsa
- leftover coleslaw
I know there will be leftover ham so I’ll make a pot of soup with it, along with various veggies, including some from the freezer.
- veggie soup with leftover ham
Again, this meal features items from the freezer – chicken and peas.
- teriyaki chicken
- brown rice
We will be in crunch mode for AdaFest. I’m not even going to pretend I’ll want to cook this night. I’m thinking this would be a good time to pick up sushi.
The big event! We will be busy all day and into the night. There will be 10 food trucks so we’ll try to find a moment to grab a bite to eat from one of those.
This is my birthday but I suspect we will be utterly exhausted. We have reservations at our favorite hotel in Oklahoma City next weekend to celebrate. I have no idea what we will do about food this day but I do know I won’t be cooking – ha!
