Week’s Eats


I’m about to head to the grocery store to fill in on some staples (actually I was supposed to be out the door an hour ago), but first I’m posting this week’s menus

Monday: Grilled filet mignon with scallion butter, asparagus
Tuesday: Cranberry chicken, mashed white beans with roasted garlic
Wednesday: Burritoes or tacos
Thursday: Onion soup breaded chicken, green beans
Friday: Greek chicken pitas, salad
Saturday: Fish taco salad

If you watch the flyers you can sometimes find filet mignon on sale for a great price. About a month ago, Shop-Rite (a Northeast chain), had it for $4.99/lb. I think we bought like $40 worth of it and had the butcher cut it into individual steaks. We’ve already had it four times I think, and there’s probably at least another four dinners in the freezer. I always feel so extravagent when I eat it, but the cheapskate side of me knows the truth 😉

The cranberry chicken recipe is from “Don’t Panic – Dinner’s in the Freezer.” I’ll be freezing half the batch, and eating half for dinner on Tuesday. The recipe for mashed white beans if from “Everyday Food: Great Food Fast.”

You can find the recipe for Greek Chicken Pitas here.

And the fish taco salad? I have to figure that out, but basically it’s just going to be fish tacos without the tortillas. What are you making?

    We did our shopping on Saturday (though menus started last night) … we’re having a bunch of weight watchers recipes since that’s the cookbook I got at the library this week … in no paticular order:
    *crusted honey mustard chicken, with potatoes and green beans
    *fish & chips, probably also with greenbeans
    *slow cooker lasagna stew, with salad
    *thai peanut noodle salad
    *mac ‘n’ cheese, apples on the side
    *crab and corn pasta, with salad?
    *cheese enchiladas (have spinach in them), with corn and beans? or maybe salad

    I think that’s it. 🙂
