Menu Update + Another Menu

tuna salad fixing

Making my tuna salad sandwiches Saturday

So how did I do sticking with my menu?  Really well!  I was surprised at how well it worked, actually.  I felt much more prepared when fixing meals the last few days.  The only thing I did “wrong” was eating chicken chili for two nights instead of one, and making biscuits instead of having grilled cheese. 🙂 It was delicious.

I am prepared to share another menu with you, but it includes a lot of leftovers. 🙂 That’s fine, though – I love cooking like that!

Right now, we have leftover Chicken Chili, Chicken a la King (and rice), and orange jello with carrots and pineapple.  Combined with fruit and veggies, that’s enough for a few meals already, which is great because I work quite a few hours this week.

Fruit this week:
Oranges (we have three left)


Fried eggs, toast, and fruit
– leftovers
– leftovers

Salmon ready to be baked


Fried eggs, toast, and fruit
(Currently undecided: will update if it’s exciting!)
– lettuce salad
Baked Salmon
– wild rice
possibly homemade wheat bread (depending on my energy level)
– Fuzzy navels & whatever the guys want
(We are having dinner guests)


Fried eggs, toast, and fruit
– leftovers
Homemade Tomato Soup & Grilled Cheese Sandwiches (Since we never made this meal last week!)
– vegetable (probably broccoli or a salad)

Homemade Enchiladas


Fried eggs, toast, and fruit
– leftovers
Homemade Enchiladas (but with corn tortillas)
– vegetable

Snacks: Cottage cheese, yogurt, celery, chocolate, fruit, leftovers, cereal, milk

Things I would like to make this week if I get a chance:
– Soup with ground turkey or beef, lima beans, green beans, kidney beans, and who knows what else? 🙂
Homemade granola

* I know that Thursday is Valentine’s Day and this is a very simple meal.  We are planning to celebrate Valentine’s Day on Friday with another fancy meal at home (to be announced but might look very similar to Tuesday’s meal) and another couple.

So what’s on your menu this week?

I'm Bonnie. I'm a pharmacy technician and new wife to Bogdan. I love cooking, usually without recipes. I love good sales and coupons, but haven't quite figured out the best way to find them. I make the typical new-wife mistakes and have burned my share of cookies. I like a cold house and a hot shower all year long.

    You really do conquer the kitchen, don’t you? I think I’ll work on those enchiladas.

    Thanks for visiting me today! ❤
