It is already the end of January, and I have no idea where the last month went already. Time flies when you having fun! And I have been having fun cooking, taking pictures and posting recipes to share with you. I hope you have enjoyed them, as I have enjoyed creating and presenting them to you. The menu for this week involves some old, some new, some borrowed. The new BBQ Bacon Chicken is delicious served with the old Twice Baked Potatoes with Broccoli. Reuse some of the leftover fresh broccoli to make a great, healthy side to the fabulous cheesy Mac n Cheese. The leftover bacon from the BBQ Bacon Chicken can be used in the Chicken Cordon Bleu pasta. Shredded beef tacos are done right in the crock pot and served with tortillas. You can even use the tortillas to make Chicken Caesar wraps instead of just plain old salads. It’s all about reusing ingredients in different ways so that nothing goes to waste. By planning dinners this way it is also less to buy at the grocery store; you will find your list is much shorter when ingredients are reused. So print out that Weekly Dinner Menu Grocery List above, make your list and do that shopping. Just once per week is all you need at the grocery store if you simply take just 15 extra minutes to make a plan. Make the first bite count!
