Menu Monday

We are into the final week of this first month of 2022. My has it gone by quickly. Really as I age the days pass by at an ever faster rate. 

Onwards to the menu plans for this week.


Leftover ham, leftover roast potatoes (I will dice them up and give them a bit of a fry up) and we will finish off the salad from last night.


Leftover chicken made into a casserole. 


Eggplant Parma from the freezer downstairs.


Clean out the fridge night.


Scrambled eggs on toast.


BBQ ribs, rice and mixed veggies.


Beef roast, roasted potatoes, and roasted carrots. The roast potatoes could become roast rutabaga as I have one I need to use up.

This menu will use up leftovers and bits and bobs from the fridge and fridge freezer. Using up what we have, and stretching things out so as to keep to the biweekly shopping trips. 

I also pulled some apple pie filling and some phyllo pastry and made a rather large apple dessert. 

Tomorrow I will be making some cinnamon buns to use up the cream cheese frosting that is residing in a container in the fridge. One more item cleared out and not wasted.

Everybody have a wonderful day. 

God bless.


  1. It is all about using things up isn't it? I try and try and it seems like the freezers never go down. I need to see a bottom sometime.

  2. I've been having a good look through all the cupboards to use everything up. Menu planning is important.

  3. It looks like you made an Apple strudel Jackie, mmmm!

  4. You make you own cinnamon buns? Bill would love you forever!!:)

  5. The apple dessert looks so tasty. Mmmm...warm with ice cream I think 😉 x
