I was looking at my weekly planner pages for this week and I'm in total shock that it's pretty much October. I mean, I knew it was coming, and I've been decorating, but DANG. September flew by! I haven't even picked out a Halloween costume for the boy yet!!! Yikes!
Here's this week's meal plan:
Monday - Slow Cooker Pork Carnitas.
Yes, they're on the menu AGAIN. I was going to make them on Friday, and even was responsible and took the roast out of the freezer on Wednesday to allow it enough time to thaw. It's only a three pound roast so I figured two days would be enough time, but I figured wrong. That sucker was solid as a rock when I went to put it in the crock pot on Friday! Dang.
So anyway, now it's thawed finally and I need to cook that bad boy, so into the crock pot it goes!
Tuesday - French Chicken Broccoli Supreme
This is making it's appearance here again for pretty much the same reason as the carnitas; it was planned, but I didn't follow through. This time I hope to be more successful!
Wednesday - Pork Chops, Quinoa with Corn and Scallions
The quinoa recipe is from Pinterest. The pork chops I'll just pan fry, nothing fancy.
Thursday - Shiitake Chicken with Steamed Rice
I got this recipe from the now gone Tranquility's Kitchen blog. Wendy used to post the most awesome authentic Chinese recipes there, and I miss her blog. :( I wish I had written more of them down.
Friday - Leftovers!
Saturday - WW Chicken Linguini
If I keep planning and not following through, these posts are going to get very boring. *sigh*
Last week's progress:
The only thing I made all week that was on my plan was the Beef and Potato Salad. It was tasty, I'll admit. The flavors were a bit different to my palate, but I enjoyed it. It was weird though, even though it was mainly beef and potatoes, I still felt hungry after I ate! My husband said the same thing. It should have felt more filling but it did not. Strange.
