Hey folks! It’s one of those stay inside and stay warm kind of days today. The weather channel says it’s -28 C today with the windchill (that’s -18 for my American friends!). Amy and Shane cleaned the kitchen this morning, now Amy’s having a nap and Shane is downstairs putting drywall up in Austan’s new bedroom in the basement. I am busy cooking dinner for tonight and watching “Cats and Dogs” on the TV with the kids.
As I wrote yesterday, we need to do some belt-tightening in the next few months. We scoured the pantry and the freezer for what we had on hand to make the menu for this week. So, without further adieu, here it is:
Sunday ~ Skinny Italian Spinach Meatballs * in Sauce over spaghetti
Monday ~ BBQ Baked Chicken drumsticks, Noodles and Sauce, Veggies
Tuesday ~ Back Bacon Roast, Potatoes, Cauliflower
Wednesday ~ Perogies, Polish Sausage, Coleslaw
Thursday ~ Beef, Potato, & Quinoa Soup with Homemade Bread
Friday ~ Spinach & Bacon Quick Quiche, Salad
Saturday ~ Prime Rib Roast**, Roast potatoes and carrots, Yorkshire Pudding
* I quadruple the recipe for this and freeze some for Andrew’s birthday dinner on February 4th
**we found a 3lb roast marked down at the store for about $7.00. My boys are going to their dad’s place, so the roast is just enough for the 6 of us remaining (Evan goes to his grandparents every Saturday).
Hope everyone has a great week…STAY WARM!
