Weekly Menu 7/14-7/19


I asked Tom last week how much money he thought we were spending each month by me not cooking on Fridays and Saturdays. We determined that it is a pretty significant amount of money. I don't really care about spending the money, but I do care about where it is spent.

We usually order pizza or Chinese or pick up fast food from somewhere. Then at some point during the month, I complain that we never go out to eat. So my plan was that if I started cooking on Fridays, leaving only one day a week where we'd either fend for ourselves with what was currently in the fridge or order out, this left 4 nights per month where the money could be tallied up and we could go out to dinner. It's a win-win situation, right?!

However, I have no interest in cooking on Friday. Usually by Wednesday my steam for preparing dinners each night is dwindled down to nothing and I have to force myself in making dinner on a Thursday night. Even the promise of going out to dinner wouldn't convince me to cook on a Friday because we're either going to the grocery store or I'm getting all of the cleaning done so I decided to institute Crock Pot Fridays.

The first one will be this week. Let's see how long I'm able to keep up with finding Crock Pot dishes and actually making them on Fridays. Maybe posting a list of my favorite restaurants on the fridge will be motivation.

In other unrelated news, isn't this cutting board full of fruit the ultimate picture of summer? I think so, at least.

Sunday - Spicy Turkey Burgers with Grilled Pineapple and Pepperjack Cheese, Fries, Corn on the Cob 

Monday - Veggie Potstickers 

Tuesday - Coconut Shrimp, Fries 

Wednesday - Chicken Cordon Blue Pasta

Thursday - Tacos

Friday - Crock Pot Honey Sesame Chicken over Rice 

I'm making Skinny Chocolate Muffins for breakfast this week and I thought I'd indulge a bit and have Turkey Clubs for lunch.

Weeks ago I said I was making cherry danishes, before I realized they are actually called Overnight Cherry Danishes and it was too late to do so. Pat me on the back, I actually started these on Saturday!! And some delicious fresh fruit popsicles, hence the picture above, are also on the menu. S'mores brownies are another possibility but it depends on how I feel tomorrow.

Oh and unrelated to cooking, I'm trying out making laundry detergent. If it goes well, are you interested in me sharing the recipe since it isn't food?
