Weekly Meals

Anyone eat anything good this week?   I have been going crazy pinning recipes on Pintrest and have a ton of new ones I need to try.   I miss our daily menu threads really bad. 

I did a hamburger casserole I had in the freezer on Tuesday.   That was a late call at work night.   So was Monday and I don’t even remember what we ate.   It was band concert night so it was just DD and me.   Wednesday was carry-out pizza before Trick-or-Treat.   And last night I had a big lunch, wasn’t hungry by the time I had to leave for work at 5:10 (got home at 4:30) so when I got home at 9:00 it was too late to eat, and I still wasn’t starving, so I had a grapefruit.   Great week of nutrition, huh?   You see any vegetables in there?   Nope, me neither.

I forgot to add the inspiration for this post.   I just laid out pork chops for tonight.   I plan on baking them.   We’ll have those with mashed potatoes and green beans.  Yay, a vegetable.

I can't remember what we ate last week, but on Friday I sat down and made a 2 week menu.  I will add bread, veggies, fruit, etc.  I have enough food in the house for the following meals...

grilled cheese and tomato soup

veggie soup

roast and mashed potatoes

steak and augratin potatoes

pork loin and mashed potatoes

spaghetti and garlic bread


hotdogs and mac-n-cheese (saving this one for school conference night)

cube steak and mashed potatoes

beef-n-noodles and mashed potatoes

chicken noodle soup


cheeseburgers and homemade potato chips

meatloaf and baked potatoes

ribs and homemade potato chips

Yes...we eat A LOT of meat and potatoes, but I do add in the fruit, veggies, and salad.
