Menu Monday 5th July 2010 - The Lean Times


Jul 5, 2010 Menu Monday , , 3 Comments

This past weekend was my birthday and after the usually celebrations and excess; it is now time to get back on the frugal wagon.  I have not really fallen off the wagon but have been spending a bit more here and there which of course eventually bites you on the bum.  So this week is rice and beans with a bit of extras.

Monday – Birthday celebrations still happening – beloved taking me out. Curry yum!

Tuesday – Slow cooker lemon roast chicken with couscous

Wednesday – Mexican Pulled Pork in the slow cooker served with black beans and yellow rice.

Thursday – Cold chicken salad – maybe Coronation Chicken to make it fancy.

Friday –  Leftover chicken burrittos

Saturday – Making slow cooker chicken stock to make mushroom risotto

Sunday – Grilled goat’s cheese salad

I think I need some new recipes.   I will hit the cookery books to hopefully wow you next week.

    Happy belated birthday. Have fun finding new recipes to try. I just checked out a bunch of cookbooks from the library. I’m looking for new recipes to try as well.
