This week's eats

Menu Plan Monday

While kind of watching/listening to the game yesterday I worked up this week's eats. Speaking of the boys, they really aren't doing well at all this year and I'm not happy about it! But I'm not surprised about it, either. Disappointed, yes.. surprised, no.

This is going to be a busy week for us so our meals are simple and easy. In addition to me working almost every day, we're moving my husband's office to a slightly larger suite five doors down in the same building. We'll do most of the moving in the evenings because that's when he isn't working but some will be accomplished in early mornings, too. Plus, we have church activities going on and those take a little time, also.

So anyway, on to Menu Plan Monday, hosted by Laura.

Last night we had Spicy Beef Roll Ups made with low carb tortillas and strips of chuck steak, purchased on sale of course, seasoned with Cook's Choice Brisket Rub, garlic, and chili powder. I thought of making salad to go with it but we were content with just the roll ups.

Tonight we'll have baked chicken breast tenderloins with brussels sprouts and salad.

The rest of the week we'll have, in no particular order:

Beef tips and gravy over wild rice, served with tossed salad and spinach - I more than likely won't make the beef and gravy in the pressure cooker but I might!

Cheese pancakes and homemade turkey sausage

Chili with hot water cornbread

Cheese Enchilada Stack with tossed salad and green beans

Dinner out one night

It's all good but the cheese pancakes are especially delicious. And since they're much lower in carbs than regular pancakes we can actually eat enough of them to not feel hungry afterwards. If you haven't tried those, give 'em a shot!

Is your menu made?

Cheese pancakes sound neat!

Oh they are neat, indeed! I like them with a little salt and pepper but a little sugar free syrup is good, too. Thanks for stopping by!
