    MONDAY:

    Week 692 Weekly Menu

    Well, last week was a week. I did get to the store last weekend, but then didn’t do anything that was on the menu. Lots of random cooking, eating out and whatnot to survive a really draining week. The biggest casualty was the bag of bean sprouts we never used, so I consider life won.Thank goodness for non-perishable foods and the freezer. All of this to say there is a reason why this week’s menu looks a lot like last week’s. 😉 

    Week 692 Weekly Dinner Menu: Monday - Naan pizzas; Tuesday - Asian Spinach Pasta Salad; Wednesday - Carnitas Tacos; Thursday - BLATs; Friday - Leftovers; Saturday - Local Takeout; Sunday - Grill Night

    MONDAY:

    TUESDAY:

    WEDNESDAY:

    • Carnitas Tacos (slow cooker will be in the garage all day)

    THURSDAY:

    • BLATs

    FRIDAY:

    • Leftovers

    SATURDAY:

    • Local Takeout

    SUNDAY:

    • Grill Night (whatever we find that looks good at the store that day)

    Please share your own menu below! Thank you, you guys are the best!

    Week 686 Weekly Menu

    Hello! Wow, I only have one carry-over idea from last week…I actually cooked! Woohoo! My first foray into Thai food was delicious, especially the Pad Thai. I’ll share the recipe soon! Still working on my curry recipe…it was good but needs some tweaking.

    Week 686 Weekly Menu: Monday - Chicken Parm; Tuesday - Frittata; Wednesday - Gumbo; Thursday - Leftovers; Friday - Caprese Paninis; Saturday - Takeout; Sunday - Island Pork

    MONDAY:

    • Chicken Parmesan, Pasta and Salad
    • A few quick notes: First, the recipe I linked to is old and before I knew how to write recipes, so, it’s a guide more than anything. One day I’ll have to do a legit chicken parm post. Second, due to my wheat allergy, I will be using Kikkoman GF Panko and Tinkayada Pasta Joy for my portions. Love both those products!

    TUESDAY:

    • Frittata because we have TONS of eggs from our chickens we need to use up! Will find ingredients at the store that look yummy to add to the frittata.

    WEDNESDAY:

    THURSDAY:

    • Leftovers

    FRIDAY:

    SATURDAY:

    • Local Takeout Night

    SUNDAY:

    Your turn! Share your menus in the comments below. Thank you and have a good, delicious, and safe week!
