Because my husband was in between jobs and pay periods (he has a new job at our church that we are extremely excited about) we had 2 1/2 weeks without a paycheck. OUCH! We survived, barely, but it was SO NICE to be able to menu plan and actually grocery shop on Friday. I'd exhausted every option of food in the pantry. Even all the beans and rice were gone! I'm still pinching pennies until we get a full 2-week paycheck, but we'll get there.
Here's what we are eating this week. I found a webpage that had a bunch of good looking slow cooker meals and with the HOT weather I'm happy to try them out and not turn on the oven. Because of that, several of these links are to the same web page, just scroll down to find it!
Monday - Greek Chicken Pita Folds
Tuesday - Pesto Chicken
Wednesday - Country Style BBQ Ribs (using pork ribs instead of beef because of a great sale!)
Thursday - Grilled Cheeseburger Wraps
Friday - Slow Cooked Kalua Pork (SO excited to try this one - it looks YUMMY!)
Saturday - Tuna Sauce on Rice (Our quick, cheap favorite go-to. It's simply a white sauce with tuna added, thrown in some lemon pepper and serve over rice)
Sunday - Grilled chicken thighs, corn on the cob, grilled potatoes
That's the plan! So happy to be back menu planning again. It really takes a certain stress out of the week. I am SO EXCITED to explore two new cookbooks. A piano students family gave me both of Pioneer Woman's cookbooks and I am excited to try them out. Her food is always amazing! I hope to menu plan from those in the weeks to come. :)
