AngelFood Ministries Meal Plan

I bought 3 units from AngelFood Ministries this month. What am I getting tomorrow at pick-up?

September Package (contents of one unit):
1.5 lb. Top Sirloin Strip Steaks (4 x 6 oz.)
2 lb. Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast
3 lb. Breaded Chicken Chunks
1.5 lb. Boneless Pork Filet
20 oz. Supreme Pizza
1 lb. Ground Turkey
1 lb. Cheddar Cheese Bratwurst Sausage
1 lb. Green Beans
1 lb. Stir Fry Vegetables (Broccoli & Bell Peppers)
35 oz. Crinkle-cut Fries
32 oz. Borden 2% Reduced Fat Shelf Stable Milk
7.5 oz. Macaroni & Cheese
15 oz. Pork & Beans
7 oz. Chicken-Flavored Rice & Vermicelli
1 lb. Pinto Beans
One Dozen Eggs
One Dessert Item

Next question is what can I make to get the most bang for my buck?

Meal #1: Beef Steak Stir-Fry over Rice, Fresh Fruit
This uses some of the steaks and stir-fry vegetables. If a fruit and veggie package was ordered, slices of pears and oranges would go well. Also peel and slice a carrot or two from the package for the stir-fry.

Meal #2: Beef Fajitas, Spanish Rice, Refried Beans
This uses some of the steak and some of the pintos beans. Onions from the fruit and veggie package (F/VP)will be used in the fajitas. Note: This also uses green peppers (not in package) which are needed in Meal #12.

Meal #3: Chicken Nuggets, Coleslaw, Mashed Potatoes
This uses some of the chicken chunks. Cabbage and carrots from the F/VP will be used for the coleslaw. Half of the potatoes will be used for the mashed potatoes.

Meal #4: Shepherd's Pie, Fruit Salad
This uses some ground turkey and green beans. The leftover mashed potatoes from Meal #3 are also used. Apples, pears and oranges from the F/VP can all be used in the fruit salad.

Meal#5: Sliced BBQ Pork/Sausage, Coleslaw, Green Beans
This uses the pork filet, cheddar bratwurst sausage and green beans. It also uses leftover coleslaw from Meal #3. If there is none, make some more from the cabbage and carrots in the F/VP.

Meal#6: Shredded Pork Sandwiches, Baked Beans, French Fries
This uses leftover pork from Meal #5. It also uses the Pork-n-Beans and some French fries.

Meal#7: Potato Sausage Soup, Salad, Homemade Bread
This uses up leftover sausage from Meal#5. It uses the shelf-stable milk. It will also use the rest of the potatoes and some tomatoes from the F/VP.

Meal #8: Parmesan Chicken Casserole, Salad, Garlic Toast
This uses the chicken chunks. It also will use up any leftover salad from Meal#7. Leftover bread from Meal #7 is used to make the garlic toast.

Meal #9: Chili Cheese Fries, Coleslaw, Fresh Fruit
This uses some of the French fries and some pinto beans. It also uses the cabbage, carrots and fruit from the F/VP.

Meal #10: Breakfast for Dinner (French Toast, Ham or Bacon, Orange Slices)
This uses eggs and shelf-stable milk. It also uses oranges from the F/VP.

Meal#11: Pizza, Salad, Breadsticks
This uses the pizza. It also uses some tomatoes from the F/VP.

Meal #12: Sweet & Sour Chicken over Rice, Steamed Green Beans
This uses some chicken breasts and some green beans. It also uses carrots from the F/VP.
Note: It also uses green peppers (not in package) which are needed in Meal #2.

Meal #13: Chicken Fried Rice, Grapes/Orange Slices, Egg Drop Soup
This uses some eggs, some chicken breasts, leftover green beans. It can also use onions, carrots and celery from the F/VP.

Meal #14: Chicken Salad Pitas, Apple Slices, Macaroni & Cheese
This uses some chicken breast and macaroni & cheese. It also use apples, carrots (I add shredded) and celery from the F/VP.

**These meal ideas are subject to being re-arranged as suits my fancy.**

Are some of your recipes using the chicken chunks online? These are really not that great and I'm looking for ways to use and mask them.

My personal ones, no. I did make the chicken parmesan casserole. My kids & I enjoyed it. In a casserole dish, combined cooked spaghetti, spaghetti sauce, seasonings to taste & parmesan cheese. Place chicken on top. Top with additional sauce and parmesan cheese. Baked until heated through (about 30 minutes with frozen chicken) at 350.

Also use the chicken chunks in other dishes calling for breaded chicken. Sweet & Sour chicken comes to mind. My kids eat it like popcorn chicken with ranch and BBQ sauce for dipping (hides taste as my oldest agrees with you).
