We hosted hospitality at our house over the weekend. We ate Tex-Mex, of course! It was really yummy and we had a ton of leftovers. I made Lucia's Salsa. I'll share the recipe tomorrow. Our weekly meeting will be tonight versus Tuesday night. The Spanish congregation has their Circuit Overseer this week.
Remember last week when I said we weren't going to be eating anything ground beef? Well, my husband received an email from work with a list of products they were trying to move out of stock. They had 10 lb rolls of 90% lean ground beef for $2.42/lb. I asked him if he'd pick up some for us. We also have a free turkey in the freezer from last month. We'll eat it this week to make room for the free ham we'll get next week.
I want to make a trip to the Farmers' Market in Forest Park next week to pick up some apples. I'm missing my crunchy apples. If they don't have a good selection, I'll pick up some at Kroger since they have them on sale this week.
Here's what we're planning to eat this week:
Monday: Mexican Chicken and Rice Soup cornbread (using leftover rice from the weekend and leftover chicken from Crock Pot Salsa Chicken from last week)
Tuesday: Lentil Shepherd Pie*, Green Beans
Wednesday: Farm House Casserole, oranges
Thursday: Crock Pot Italian Chicken, rice, green beans
Friday: BBQ Chicken Pizza or here too
Saturday: Lunch: Egg Salad Sandwiches, Pickles, Pearsauce; Supper: Roasted Turkey dinner, baked sweet potatoes, green beans, cranberry sauce, macaroni and cheese
Sunday: Tuna Sandwiches, Oven Fries, Apples; Supper: Turkey Wreath with leftover sides.
*Lentil Shepherd Pie is new this week. I found it on pinterest. I'm really interested to see how it turns out!
Granola with yogurt, egg whites with salsa; Oatmeal with peanut butter and blueberries with egg white omelet.
Lunches: Hard boiled egg on toast with cheese stick and pears; Turkey sandwich with avocado and tomato with peaches
Snacks: almonds, yogurt and fruit; apple and peanut butter with cheese stick
I hope you have a great week!
