This week's menu

Last week was a disaster; I didn't follow the menu and we ate out. I know it doesn't sound like a big deal, but we have been working really hard on using a menu to help save money (and stress) and eating out just ruins the whole thing.

Anyway, here is a quick recap:

Saturday we had tacos as planned, this time I tried marinating the steak in the same mix as the chicken with mixed results. Which means I'm still on the search for the perfect steak marinade.

Sunday we ended up having ribs - this was the bright spot of the week. Check out a full post about them here.  

Monday we had freezer dive, which actually consisted of fries, chicken fingers and extreme beans and Tuesday I ate at my aunt's house. Wednesday I made my chicken and rice goulash - except somewhere, somehow, it all went terribly wrong and tasted horribly. Thursday was the biggest fail of them all - we ordered in chinese food. And lots of it.  Friday we had our usual pizza, which was mediocre. 

So as you can see, this week was an EPIC FAIL.

But, I am choosing to not dwell on the past and look forward to a new week:

Saturday: Tunnel of Fudge Cake. Yup, just dessert - we ate at our friends house and had amazing homemade lasagna.

Sunday: Whole chicken with stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy.

Monday: Pulled pork sandwich with oven fries. (Cook pork tenderloin in slow cooker with a bit of apple juice and water, once cooked, pull apart and coat with saved homemade bbq sauce from last week)

Tuesday: Pork chops with basmatti rice and zucchini

Wednesday: Freezer lasagna (Lasagna we made a while back and froze for easy meals)

Thursday: Roast (the same roast that we froze 2 weeks ago!) with mashed potatoes and broccoli

Friday: Pizza  Ribs with oven fries and roasted cauliflower.

What have you got planned for the week?
