Making this menu work for you

This is a great plan-ahead menu by following these suggestions:

Over a weekend or on a light day, make a batch of Beef BBQ. After it has cooled, store it in air-tight, serving size containers in your freezer. It should keep for 3-6 months.

If you have at least half an hour to bake one morning a week, use that morning to bake a batch of bran muffins. Store them in your freezer in zipper lock freezer bags. Thaw in the microwave.

You can used left-over grilled chicken for the Chicken Cesar Salad.

Keep a container of prepared salad greens in your refrigerator. When packing a lunch to take, select the amount of greens you would like and store it in a smaller container. Keep the dressing in a separate container to prevent wilting.
