Weekly Menu 6/23-6/28


I am just completely baffled as to how June is practically over. The only thing I've managed to accomplish this summer is eat a decent amount of burgers. But I have no tan, I've barely been to the pool and this weekend was the first time we were supposed to visit Tom's parents, but too many events lead to too much traffic and we decided to reschedule for another weekend.

I don't like it. I need to rewind back to Memorial Day and then pass through these past almost 30 days in super slow speed. I'm not ready for the 4th of July. That signals that summer is half over and I don't feel like it's even begun!

In other news, the demise of Google Reader is quickly approaching. I've tried both of the other main readers and I am not exactly impressed with either one since there is no search function. I seriously can't comprehend how one would not include a search function in a blog reader! We've talked about this on the cooking board I frequent and someone mentioned that they went through and pinned all of their starred recipes from their reader. My current option of just being incredibly upset that I would no longer have access to those recipes wasn't working for me.

So I jumped on this like white on rice. In the process, I also decided to give my 18th and final attempt at having a Pinterest for this blog. See, every time I tried to sign up as a business, Pinterest would crash and not save my info. In the few times I made it past signing up, I would go to verify my website, which is kind of a necessity when you're using Pinterest as a business and it wouldn't work. However, the Pinterest gods must have been with me that day because not only was I able to create a Cookaholic Wife Pinterest, but I was able to verify the site AND get it to where if you hover over an image, it allows you to pin it directly from there. YAY!

I've made it through pinning all of my 2012 and 2013 starred recipes from the reader. I'm slowly going through 2011 and debating on whether or not to really save a recipe that I haven't made in almost 2 years. So if you choose to follow me, please bear with me if you see a gazillion pins from me a day.

Anyway, to follow me, you can either click on the P over in that Stay Connected section to the right, or just click on this pretty little link here: http://pinterest.com/cookaholicwife1

And now for the menu this week.

Sunday - Hot Roast Beef Sandwiches with Fries and Corn on the Cob

Monday - Chicken Marsala with Roasted Red Potatoes and Asparagus

Tuesday - Mongolian Beef over Rice

Wednesday - Jalapeno Popper Pasta

Thursday - Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin with Roasted Red Potatoes and Asparagus 

I've had a problem recently where I purchase potatoes for one dish and they end up going bad before I can use them again, which is why I decided to have the same side dishes for two different meals.

For lunches this week, I'm reverting back to an old favorite, the prosciutto egg cup. I realized that I feel more full from lunch when I don't get a typical lunch. These week I'm going to have cheese and crackers, some fruit and some type of salad.
