"Flexible" Is My Middle Name

I've been really good about sticking to my month long menu. I take a gander at it each evening before I go to bed so that I know what's for dinner the next day.

This morning I thawed out a roast then put it in the crockpot with some onion slices, garlic salt and some "Better the Bouillon" (beef flavor). A little later in the morning I started some rolls - because we were having au jus sandwiches for dinner. With green beans.

About an hour or so before dinner the boys inform me that they have a barbecue for combined activity, and thus will not be home for dinner. Neither will their dad. So....I have a goodly size cooked roast, and a whole pan of rolls. Nathan and I enjoyed our au jus, but there is still 2/3 of a roast left.

Hmm....looks like "planned overs" for tomorrow.

Planned leftovers...what is that like?!

And it sounded so good too! Are you finding it "expensive or in" living on food storage...? I don't often make roasts in the middle of the week but then I would think that planning it all out ahead of time would be cost effective...

Having a roast for two meals makes it "in"...

We don't have meat for every meal - so an occasional roast midweek isn't prohibitively expensive. Dinner for tomorrow is German pancakes...I'm looking forward to it!

With G-pancakes what happens to the roast?
