Pancakes on a Tuesday!  This week’s menu assumes you can have this pancake twice (8 servings for 4 people) during the week before you use up all the sausage.  You don’t necessarily have to do it on the days I suggest.  The pancake breakfast is a bit short on protein, though.  Luckily, we make that up at dinner.

You can already tell that this week’s meals are more varied than last week’s were.  The routine should be settling in nicely.   In fact, you’ve pretty much made this dinner before.  And you’ll make it again this week.  Go ahead and use the leftover bones and skin to make the broth, but freeze it.  It’s probably worth it to have an extra gallon of chicken broth around.  You can use it as a cooking ingredient, or as an emergency soup.  Keep the leftover chicken meat, you’ll use it for fried rice later this week.

We’re making chili tomorrow, so start soaking your kidney beans!
