Meal plan for the rest of January

We picked up our CSA delivery for the month, so it's time to plan meals for the rest of the month. I feel a little discombobulated trying to do this on a Tuesday night with no shopping planned, but I guess it does encourage me to stick with the whole pantry cooking thing.

** means it's a quick meal, meant to be made M/Tu/Fri -- may have make ahead work

  • Hot banana curry shrimp with brown rice & veggie stirfry

  • pork loin chops in apple-cream sauce

  • pot roast, using sirloin roast -- shredded beef chili with the leftovers **

  • bacon-wrapped pounced chicken rollups of some kind
  • rack of lamb, from p325 in make it fast**
  • herb-roasted whole chicken, from p263 in make it fast**

    • need red onion, orange, pecans, blue cheese
  • chicken cordon bleu from p251 in make it fast book**
    • need ham, swiss
  • lasagna with ground beef and spinach
    • need ricotta, mozzerella
    • will need to freeze spinach to prevent spoilage
  • baked ziti with pork sausage**

    • p 97 & 98, make-ahead cookbook
  • pork loin chops something??
  • ground pork something??

Apparently I am looking forward to unfettered shopping in February :). Edited to remove all mentions of needing marinara sauce...wow did I find a lot of that stuff already in my freezer today...along with things that have been in there for a long, long time. I might need a cook from the pantry challenge twice a year....!
