Roasted vegetables on Monday= leftovers for calzones on Tuesday!
Dave & I went to Trader Joe’s this weekend and got some 2-buck chuck wine, cereal, and pre-made whole wheat pizza dough (a very random grocery list, I know). It was $1.99 for the dough and all I had to do was roll it out and stuff it. We had some cooked Italian sausage and spaghetti sauce in the freezer since I cooked it all but only used half for a previous recipe.
I didn’t have any specific recipe, I just used what I already had on hand- Italian seasoning, garlic powder, leftover roasted vegetables, canned mushrooms, mozzarella, Italian sausage, and some kale I sautéed. I brushed the calzones with egg white to give it a shiny look and make the crust crispier. They came out perfect after 15 minutes at 425 degrees Fahrenheit and we dipped them in the leftover spaghetti sauce (close enough to marinara). The store nearby had strawberries on sale again, so we had a salad on the side with some walnuts I toasted on Monday and some balsamic vinaigrette.
The rest of our week in terms of meal planning looks like leftovers (we made 4 calzones and have 2 left), leftover barbeque shredded chicken made in the crockpot, and breakfast because eggs and french toast are so cheap and easy!
What do you have planned for meals this week?
