Weekly Menu 2/13 - 2/18

/

Even though we went out for lunch yesterday I decided I was still going to make something nice for Valentine's Day. It definitely helped that the grocery store agreed with me and put filet mignon on sale for $8.98 a pound!

Sunday - chili

Monday - pepper encrusted filet with mushroom risotto and roasted asparagus

Tuesday - bacon pierogie bake

Wednesday - grilled chicken breast with baked potatoes and corn

Thursday - ropa vieja

Friday - I'm not sure yet

When I planned out the menu, we were supposed to go out to dinner today. Friday night Tom says to me, I'd rather go out Saturday for lunch. So I moved the chili I had planned on making on Friday to Sunday. I'm sure by Friday morning some idea for dinner will come to me. Especially since our freezer is overflowing with food.

Which was a bit of an accident. When I realized we had pretty much nothing left in the freezer, I picked up two pork tenderloins, a 2 lb. bag of frozen shrimp, 5 lbs. of ground beef and 8 chicken breasts. Before we could even make a dent in that, Redner's had the filet and seafood sale. I ended up with 4 meals of steak, 2 lbs. of crab meat, a flank steak, and 1 lb. of scallops. Add that to the pierogie and 3 different types of ice cream and lets just say that opening the freezer is a bit of a mission. You have to stand back pretty far so in case anything flies out, your toes are safe and then open the freezer with one hand while putting the other hand up to block any flying meats.

I really can't wait for the day where I have a huge deep freezer. I have a feeling this is what will happen when we finally get one:
Day 1 - install and turn on freezer. Purchase tons of plastic containers.
Day 2 - chicken noodle soup, beef stew, chili, and various other freezeable meals
Day 3 - pizza sauce, chicken stock, and similar items
Day 4 - insanely large grocery bill because I was let loose in a bulk purchase store like Costco.
Day 5 - figure out how to build dividers for freezer to keep everything organized.

Yes, I realize how insane this sounds to have planned out, but the over-organized in me can't help it. I wonder if there are over-organized anonymous meetings I can join. :)
