Menus for the Week

Grocery shopping is done, and there were some good meat buys this week. I bought two boneless pork roasts ($1.99 lb.) and had one cut into 1/2 inch chops, and the other left whole for a roast. From the sliced roast, I packaged and froze 16 pork chops, which is 5 meals for us (Jeff eats two, I eat one). Also on sale were bone-in chicken breasts and chicken thighs at .99 a pound. My favorite hot dogs, Hebrew National, were on sale, as well as ham steaks. Because of the salt content, we don't eat much ham, but I thought a steak would be nice with macaroni and cheese, and we'd have a portion leftover to have diced up in omelettes or scrambled eggs for breakfast.

Hot dogs, rolls
Corn on the Cob

Ham Steak
Leftover mac and cheese
Steamed Green Beans

Chef Salad with
L/O diced ham, hard boiled eggs, swiss cheese cubes
Ritz Crackers
Sliced tomatoes/cucumbers

Grilled Chicken Thighs
Grilled veggies

Oven baked Haddock
Oven-fried potatoes/onions
Creamed Spinach

If you notice the link to the Pork Chops with Peaches and Couscous, you'll find a new blog of mine - TEACHING MY DAUGHTER TO COOK. The title is self-explanatory! Cooking 101 for my daughter - whom I forgot to teach to cook! It's a fairly new blog, but I'll be adding tried and true family recipes each week. This week I will probably add the Baked Haddock recipe, since she recently posted on FaceBook that she has no idea how to cook fish. Sigh sigh sigh. What was I thinking?!?

I'm participating in the following Weekly Menu Link-ups. Click on picture to go to the link and post your own menu or read lots of others!

YOu have a great menu this week! I see you got Hebrew National Hot Dogs on sale, I LOVE them!!!! But don't eat them often.

I also visited your new blog, Teaching My Daughter To Cook. Such a lovely idea! YOu daughter must feel so loved! I originally started my blog to give my daugher who just got married a place to come to find all things domestic and a touch of home. Birds of a feather, you and I!Thanks for participating in ON THE MENU MONDAY! YOu have given us so many yummy ideas and another blog to enjoy!
