Last week my menu got really screwed up. Ryan was out of town, we had playdates and school functions so this week will actually be making up from some of the things I planned on making last week.
Monday – Souplantation!! – It’s a good way to start off my week. I picked Ryan up from the airport this morning and what better way to welcome him home than to take the whole family out for dinner?
Tuesday – Tacos – We had tacos at our playdate on Friday and I was responsible for bringing the meat. There was a ton of meat leftover and normally I would leave that with the host of the playdate, but she and her family are vegetarians and wanted nothing to do with my ground carcass.
Wednesday – Tater Tot Casserole – I didn’t make this last week because we were eating other leftovers.
Thursday – Baked Potato Bar – Finally something new! The last time I made these I put them in the crockpot. They turned out really well so I’ll do that again.
Friday – Shrimp, Leek and Spinach Pasta – I love this pasta. It’s a nice change from the boring spaghetti that I make when I’m in the mood for pasta.
Saturday – Pulled Pork Sandwiches – I have a HUGE pork shoulder that has been in the freezer for a couple of months that we need to eat. I love this recipe. We’ll have pulled pork sandwiches on Saturday and then have Carnitas the following Monday.
Sunday – Asian Salmon – Once the weather stays consistently warm, I always crave fish. Before Kamryn was born, I used to grill salmon with chili powder, salt and lemon 3 or 4 times a week for my dinner.
Last week I spent an all time low at the grocery store. My total bill for a week’s worth of groceries was $78! I did have a coupon for $10 off my bill, but even $88 may be a record.
