Menu, week 2/20-2/27

Pin It

   I've been feeling a little under weather in the last few days, so I wasn't cooking much. Instead we ate pizza, popcorn and watched the movies. So I bumped a few things for this week's menu. So here's what our week looks like for now:

Mon-crock pot beef ribs, egg noddles, salad
Tues-some sort of a soup
Wed-meatballs, mashed potatoes, frozen veggies
Thurs- Potato spinach bake
Sat- breakfast for dinner
Sun- Birthday party with a family


  1. hope you are feeling better. we had tacos tonight....always a very big hit!

    1. Thank you! We will probably have tacos next week. We have some taco shells in a pantry that really need to be used.

  2. Lena, hope you are now feeling better. There has been a nasty bug going around up here with high temps and fevers. Two of our grandboys have had it. Menu of the week sounds great, I will be right over ... lol

    1. Come on over :) And thank you! I really hope to get better soon. This winter is very mild but so deceiving. I never know what to wear, and then there are all those little nasty viruses going around...

  3. That looks like a great, filling, frugal menu. Good for you! I've amended the spinach potato bake recipe just a little bit, because I realized I had a few typos! I had written "2/4" instead of 2/3 cups shredded cheese. Oops! It's fixed now. I also added in a few optional tablespoons of parsley. Well... Now I'm thinking I should make it, too! I have so many potatoes right now. Do you have any tips on storing potatoes? I'm using them more often now, and they seem to always be making their way through our kitchen! I'd love to hear how you store them. Also, when you have time (I know how busy things can get...), would you share your recipe for the beef ribs? That sounds great. I've never made those before!

  4. Thanks, Lara. I can't wait to try your recipe! I usually store my potatoes in a basket in my pantry with a fresh apple in it. I don't know why but apples prolong the life of potatoes. And I try to go through our basket regularly to use up all the potatoes that are getting soft or ready to sprout.
    And as for the beef ribs recipe, it was actually my first time to try it, and it wasn't as good as I thought it would be. I found it in Kraft food and family magazine. You basically take 2 lbs of boneless parts of beef ribs(or I would assume you can use any kind of boneless beef,really), cut them in cubes and mix with 1/4 cup A.1 Original Steak Sauce,put it in a slow cooker and top with 1 sliced onion and a can of diced tomatoes with all the liquid. Cook on low for 9 to 10 hours. Then mix 1/4 cup of water with 2 Tbsp flour and stir into meat. Cook for a another 5 min, stirring occasionally. It turned out OK but I think it really lacked flavor.
