This Week In Our Kitchen: Week of May 13th

Happy Mother’s Day (a little late)!

I actually had a lot of fun planning the menu this week thanks to Pinterest. I have been on Pinterest for awhile, but I just got addicted to it. I love to peruse recipes and then pin them to my pretty boards. If you want to see my boards I would love for you to check them out here.

Last week we didn’t do a whole lot of cooking. Some shredded beef tacos and grilled pork chops about sums it up with a few meals eaten out. I would love to recommend menu planning to anyone who wants to eat healthy and stay on a budget. If you don’t menu plan you are more likely to eat out and for my family that means unnecessary spending and unhealthy choices. Also, no matter what the food is not as good as what we can get at home, and trust me I know this. My husband is a self-proclaimed food critic; sometimes I feel like I am eating with a judge from Chopped.

Here is what we will be eating at our house this week.

Sunday: Pioneer Woman’s Pot Roast, Creamy Mashed Potatoes, Brussels Sprouts, and Aunt Norma’s Dill Bread

Monday: Roast Beef Quesadillas with Spicy Tomato Soup

Tuesday: Bacon Blue Cheese Burgers with oven roasted fries

Wednesday: Cajun Oven Fried Chicken, potato cakes and scalloped corn

Thursday: Texas Two Step Pork Chops (to be blogged), Dill Potato Salad and Grilled Corn with Chipotle Butter

Friday: Grilled Honey Lime Chicken, grilled yellow squash, and Bacon Cheddar Pull Apart Bread

Saturday: Leftovers

As recipes are posted on Kitchen and Kids, I will link them up to my menu plans, so if something interests you check back and see if I’ve posted a recipe.

    A couple times you have mentioned Texas Two Step Pork Chops and that you intend to blog about them, but, so far, nothing. I’d at least l ike the recipe for them if you could ever include that in your blog.
