Hello, hello, everyone!
How's your Monday been?? Last week was an unusual one for us. I mentioned that my husband was out of town for a few days. What I didn't mention is that a few days was actually from Sunday afternoon all the way to Friday night. Well, forgive me that I didn't want to admit to staying home alone with the kids for the whole week out loud on the web :)
But as you can imagine, we didn't stick to our menu much. It's much easier to feed just the kids when the head of the household is out of town :) On the other hand, we were pretty good finishing up all the leftovers and bits and pieces of food in the fridge, so we had zero food waste last week. Wohoo!! I like weeks like that (minus the fact that Hubby was gone...This I didn't like a single bit!!)
And because I don't have any food waste pictures for you, how about another small harvest from our garden:
We finally started getting plenty of tomatoes and peppers. It's nice to have some fresh produce right off the vine! Our cucumbers are pretty slow though - it's just way too hard for them. We haven't had a single rain in the past six weeks, and I'm getting really tired of it. Oh well, two months from now I will complain about wet weather too :)
Instead, that's what we are eating this week:
Mon.- sandwiches (well, we were planning something different but I really didn't feel like cooking. We'll see how much we will actually stick to the whole menu thing:)
Tues.- crock pot bbq pork ribs (thank you for all your awesome advice last week!), salad
Wed.- IKEA dinner
Thurs.- stuffed zucchini (thank you, Cindy for the recipe :), grilled chicken
Fr.- eggs, hash browns, smoked sausages
Sat.- leftovers or soup of some sort
Sun.- pork roast, cut up potatoes, salad.
Our oldest is starting school on Wednesday, so we decided to go to IKEA. A long time ago we promised to take him out for his first day but right now it's out of the question to go to his favorite salad-bar place. Instead we offered IKEA because they have a deal when a family of 4 can eat for only $9.99. Considering you don't pay tips in IKEA, it's the best deal in town right now!!
And what's on your menu this week?
