The Weekly Menu – Week of January 21


So, uh, hi! This blogging thing has gotten spotty, hasn’t it? I’m hoping to get back to it now that life seems to have settled down post move/job change/holidays/and general malaise. I’m also hoping to get back to a lot of things, like, reading, cooking, and just chilling in general.

And so, about that cooking…. I’ve been cooking a LOT more lately since we moved. The surprising LACK OF MONEY (hello two house payments! Anyone looking for a house in NC?) has led to much more cooking around here. Yay for saving money and eating healthier!

Here are my plans for this week:

Sunday: Sunday has become something of a prep day around here. I’ll be getting some calzones ready for school lunches, making mini-quiches for quick breakfasts, getting snacks and whatnot together, and making my week easier (hopefully).

Monday: I got a new cast-iron skillet for Christmas and I have YET to grill some pork chops. So pork chops it is! I like them simple; with salt, pepper, and a touch of garlic. Serving it with a side of rice and some grilled veggies.

Tuesday: Hey! It’s my birthday!! I dang well hope I don’t have to cook for my 40th. Here’s hoping we have something good. That I don’t cook. lol

Wednesday: I am really feeling breakfast for supper. Scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, and maybe grits? Biscuits? Toast? Jam? PANCAKES?

Thursday: We’ll eat with my aunt and uncle tonight!

Friday: It’ll just me and the hubby so we’ll probably fend for ourselves.

Saturday: Today is my birthday party! The husband is making the meal (again? Score!) and it’ll be for lunch, so I doubt I’ll be wanting much supper. Maybe some popcorn?

Here’s hoping I can stick to this! What are you eating this coming week?

  1. Yay! I think we have sloppy joes on the menu this week, as well as spinach and artichoke grilled cheese sandwiches. I have been craving a good burger lately, so I hope that is on the menu as well. Now I’m hungry…

    Happy early birthday! I think you should celebrate all week long!


  2. Yum on the pork chops! And no cooking on your birthday. I think that should be a hard and fast rule. We have a Hello Fresh order coming this week so that will be at least 3 meals and other than that I’m a little iffy. I have a feeling breakfast will be one of the days. Happy birthday and have a great week!


  3. It’s just past 11pm on Sunday night and I haven’t even thought about meals for the week yet. I DO have a plan to pull out cookbooks and get a couple of new recipes into the rotation because everything is getting very boring lately.
    And have a great birthday!
