Hi y’all! Just popping in during nap time to share this week’s menu. I’ve been unorganized with my meal planning lately and want to go into this week feeling truly prepared.
This morning we stopped by the new location of The Meat House in Mooresville. This place is awesome! (I only had my phone with me, thus the lackluster photos)
They just opened and are giving free steak tips away if you stop in to check them out. They have a huge selection of quality meats, chicken, seafood and wild game, like rabbit. They also carry some local meats, like bison from Asheville. They have sample set up throughout the small store of breads and oils, marinated steaks, bbq chicken and dips they carry as well.
It’s a food fanatic’s paradise. They also carry craft beers and wine, making it a one stop shop for a fancy dinner at home. Needless to say, I was impressed.
I hadn’t planned our weekly menu yet, but the mussels were only $3 a pound, so I couldn’t say no. We also bought thin slices of steak. They vacuum sealed it for us with a honey bourbon marinade. We are going to make some homemade beef jerky later today and David is quite excited!
Anyway, after stopping by there and taking note of the food we have on hand, I planned out the upcoming week-
Sunday- Mussels in Tomato Broth with Crusty Bread
Monday- Spaghetti Squash with Homemade Meat Sauce
Tuesday- Veggie loaded Chicken Caesar Salads
Wednesday- Wild Salmon with Fried Quinoa & bok choy
Thursday- Vegetarian Burrito Bowls
I plan on making a big batch of lentil vegetable soup for lunches as well as using up the homemade black bean burgers I have in the freezer.
Have you dug through your freezer lately? I found black bean burgers, chicken, ground beef and wild salmon patties. I tend to stick stuff in there when there is a sale, then I forget about. Finding all those goodies means that groceries this week will be cheap- just a lot of veggies and some quinoa and barley from the bulk bins. Wahoo!
What’s on your menu this week?
Don’t forget you have until tomorrow morning to enter the Maui Jims sunglasses giveaway!
