This week, we followed the plan really well. Of course, going out to eat twice helped! :) On Saturday, I had planned Chicken with mushroom gravy in the crock pot, but we still had some leftover beef tenderloin to use up. So, I sauteed some baby bella mushrooms, sliced the tenderloin very thinly, and added some gravy. I served it all over mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli on the side. Easy, cheap, and great way to use up those leftovers. (By the way, those tenderloins can be pricey - $9 on sale - but they last my family three meals, so they turn out to be a good deal!)
So, because of our slight modifications, this week will hold a couple of changes as well.
Sunday~ Rachael Ray's Chili Cheese Fries (made with leftover chili from last week, and instead of a cheese sauce, I just sprinkled shredded cheese on top). Fun treat for Superbowl Sunday!
Monday~ Hubby has class, so ds#3 & I will fend for ourselves.
Thursday~ Chicken in mushroom gravy, egg noodles, broccoli, rolls (looking for a good recipe - any suggestions?)
Friday~ Sandwiches & chips (Olympic opening ceremonies)
Burgers & Dogs on the grill, baked beans, fries (Baseball tryouts)
and for the next week...
Sunday~Happy Heart Day! My grandparents are renewing their wedding vows today and we are going out to eat afterward.
Monday~ Spaghetti, french bread, caesar salad, and in honor of President's Day, Apple Cherry pie for dessert
Tuesday~ Orange Chicken, (I cheat and use chicken nuggets from the freezer, so I only have to make the sauce) rice, mandarin oranges, broccoli, won tons
Wednesday~ Breakfast for dinner: eggs, bacon, grits.
Friday~ Red beans & rice, cornbread
