Backed up in the Kitchen

I find end of this week is leaving me a bit backed up in the kitchen. I had pulled out ground beef a few days ago and thawed it. It was a package of 3lbs. I have made tacos, lasagna and I still
have some left over. I will probably make chili tonight. The problem is that I had taken out a beef soup bone with a pretty decent amount of meat attached with the anticipation of making a beef stew. I wasn't planning on this ground beef lasting so many days,
and I don't want to refreeze the soup bone. I'm going to throw it in the crockpot and plan on that for dinner tomorrow.
There is still lasagna left over and taco fixings. For some reason the husband and daughter have not been eating the leftovers, so I have an almost over abundance of food in the fridge right now. Sigh, I don't know if I should bother to take anything out
for Sunday dinner or leave it to leftovers. Here is the even bigger problem they refuse to eat leftovers after the first day after I've made the meal. I absolutely refuse to throw food away. I'll take leftovers to my neighbors, whom are older and not always
able to physically or financially get out to grocery shop. They always appreciate it and I don't mind doing it.
I normally get my ground beef packaged in 1 lb bundles. This past month I put in an early order at my butcher and the girl packaged it in 3 lb. I will never do that again! It has caused a backup, a traffic jam if you will. The meals I had planned for the
weekend are now being pushed into next week, and Sunday dinner is not going to be the big meal I planned. What to do? I'm not complaining there is too much food. I know many that don't have enough to last the week.
