Menu Week 3/21/11

I have been a bit absent lately… trying to catch up on some stuff around the house.  My oldest is starting school this week and we have been catching up on appointments and making sure things are in order before that happens.  We have also been working on a bit of spring cleaning in the middle of that and had our wedding anniversary this past week.  It seems like a whole lot happened all at once and I slacked off a bit with the blog.  I am hoping to catch up on posting some deals this week for everyone and will start gathering up some cute spring/easter decor and crafts.


So… this is the menu for the week as of right now.

I will explain that there will be only one chicken recipe this week mainly because…. I don’t have any more chicken!!!  I got the coupon for price chopper when they had leg quarters for 39 cents a pound and they were out.  I got a rain check for those and didn’t go shopping that next week.  The following week they had all price chopper chicken packs on sale 40% off so by the time I got to go shopping… they had NO chicken left.

The other weird thing about upcoming menus is the abundance of steak and beef recipes.  We just bought a case of meat from this guy who comes around once in a while selling cases of meat and seafood.  We got a whole lot of steak- everything from t-bones, ny strips, fillet mignon, porter house…. etc.  So… I will be including recipes for steak in the following weeks, but usually don’t buy much for steak other than special occasion because of the cost.


Monday–  Coconut Shrimp with brown rice and steamed carrots

Tuesday–  Leftovers

Wednesday–  T Bone Steaks marinated in Chicago Steakhouse by A1 with mashed potatoes and steamed green beans

Thursday–  Pork Stir Fry (using beans, asparagus, edamame, peas, and carrots from the freezer) over brown rice

Friday–  Chicken Parmesan Subs

Saturday–  Leftovers

Sunday–  Quick Minestrone
