What’s Cookin’ This Week

27 Sep

Here’s my planned menu for this week – I’m making good use of my Angel Food Ministries order this month (link on the side) so I’m putting *s where I’m using part of my bounty.  Two *s mean it’s something from last month’s AFM box, still tucked away in the freezer:

MON 9/27: Scrambled eggs*, Blueberry Pancakes*, Sausage, Cantaloupe slices*

UPDATE: D is having a very bad day today – the sort that involved no appetite and a desire to pull the covers over her head and go to bed at 4:30 pm.  So yes we did have Breakfast For Dinner after I coaxed her to come out of her room for a little while, but modified from this relatively wholesome version to something less nutritious but more comfort foodish – fried potatoes, sausage, and a cheese omelet.  The blueberries and cantaloupe will wait for another day, when life isn’t being so difficult. (No, she likes fruit just fine – she just wanted those fried potatoes and cheese a lot more)

TUE 9/28: Pork Chops*, Cole Slaw*, Green Beans*, Applesauce (homemade from Farmer’s Market apples and put up in the freezer)

(UPDATE – Gloomy weather and a hectic morning and… general ho hum laziness.. has Tuesday and Wednesday’s menu being flipped.  Dinner is whatever you can find tonight…pork chops tomorrow.)

WED 9/29: Cook’s Night Off – fend for self

(UPDATE – rain, rain, rain and gloom – the cole slaw turned into smothered cabbage and onions to go with the chops.  Swapped out green beans for fresh pineapple chunks just because.  Honestly would have happily added a couple more veggies and done away with the pork chops – they were tough and disappointing.)

THU 9/30: Bean and Cheese Burritos*Spanish Rice, Hominy Casserole

(UPDATE – done, but minus the spanish rice… the hominy was very filling and seriously did not need more grains)

FRI 10/1: Tuna Melts, Sweet Potato Fries*, Salad

(UPDATE – never happened… D was out with friends, and I added thinsliced leftover pork and cabbage to some ramen – which was actually really good)

SAT 10/2: Broiled Steak**, Baked Potatoes*, Broccoli** and Cauliflower** with Cheese

(UPDATE – we both ate late lunches and decided to just have a grab-what-you-can dinner.)

SUN 10/3: Corn* and Potato Chowder, Rolls

(UPDATE – Had the steak tonight instead, with sweet potato fries and cheesy cauliflower.  The chowder will roll over til tomorrow.)

    The corn-potato chowder sounds fab! I will have to give it a whirl soon.

    Stop by and see me sometime over at Free 2 Be Frugal.
