I am still loving me some Pinterest! I have been pinning so many yummy looking recipes and I finally decided to start cooking them. I don’t really enjoy cooking, but if I have a recipe I am good to go!
Nick and I have made weekly menus since we got married. It helps so much when we both get home and are exhausted. The last thing I want to do is think about what we are going to eat. We plan the meals on Saturday or Sunday and then grocery shop. We really try to only buy what we need for those meals plus the essentials (milk and bread). We usually only spend around $75 and we go once a month to buy a lot of meat. So the $75 is without meat and of course we are only feeding 2 people,but we always have tons of leftovers.
Anyway, we decided to develop most of our menu this week from things that I have pinned. I have included the link for reference. I am also going to post the results of the meals during the week.
Saturday: 3 Meat Pizza Casserole-without the ham (it just didn’t sound good!) with Salad and Olive Garden dressing! YUM!
Sunday: Chicken Stir Fry, Rice, and Egg Rolls- this is not from Pinterest. It is just a normal meal we cook often.
Monday: (1st day of school! I know I will be exhausted!) Leftovers of 3 Meat Pizza Casserole
Tuesday: Smoked Pork Chops (heated in the oven), canned or frozen veggie, and Loaded Potato Casserole
Wednesday: Crockpot BBQ Chicken, with veggie, and leftover Loaded Potato Casserole
Thursday: Probably leftovers of pork chops or whatever we had a lot of…This is always the day we are too tired and usually end up going to get something eat. We will see…
Friday: We always eat out or have Friday night with friends!
If you are like me you have pinned tons of yummy looking desserts. Well me too! I decided to make this…
We got home from the grocery store had lunch and put Andrew down for a nap. Then I decided to go ahead and make these so we could have a little treat throughout the week. I also tried this dessert because I think it would be great for a classroom treat! So here is how it went! The whole cooking process only took about 15 mins. My kind of cooking! It is basically cooking Rice Krispy treats but add yellow cake mix and sprinkles.
You only need a little cake mix, so I save the rest.
Sprinkle in cake mix…
Take off the heat! and add sprinkles…
Press into dish and let cool for 30 mins. I forgot to put some sprinkles on top, but I think it has enough!
I was left with this disaster which is now soaking in the sink!
I haven’t tasted it yet, but I am sure it is yummy! Come back throughout the week to see how the recipes go!!
