Menu, Week of 1/29


This was a busy weekend, so I am planning late. I ended up going to my aunt’s house yesterday to pick up the quilting frame my great-uncle built for my grandmother sometime back around 1960–how cool is that?–so I got home late and ended up eating out. I am going out of town on Thursday for a training class for work, coming back Friday night, so I only need to plan three meals!

Sunday: BBQ pulled pork, baked beans, french fries, salad (at Bandana’s)

Monday: sausage and tomato risotto, salad

Tuesday: leftovers

Wednesday: dinner at my dad’s (hamburgers, sliced avocado, onions and tomatoes, sweet potato fries)

Did you see what I did there? How I cleverly disguised the fact that I am only cooking one night this week? I may cook a little something on Tuesday, depending on what the leftover situation looks like, but really, tonight is it, and I am just doing risotto, which is so easy, it is practically not cooking in my book. Yes, I have to stand at the stove, but there will be wine and relaxation, so it is all good!

What are you have this week?

As always, this post will be linked to’s Menu Planning Monday–lots more inspiration over there!

  1. Barb, I love that you can use different sauces on each bite if you want to! I don’t go there often, but it was just what I wanted Sunday night!

    I actually miss cooking when I don’t get to do it. Crazy, I know, but I like making good food that is exactly what I want. I like a break, but only cooking one meal seems a bit extreme, :).
