Meal Planning #6
{Featuring marinated flank steak, quesadillas and cottage pie}

As a dedicated maker of lists I am actually impressed that I am on week 6 of listing our weekly meals. There is always a list in my purse keeping me organized for grocery shopping, errands to run and books to reserve. But actually posting the list and photos is another animal altogether.

It’s been a challenge posting this week as we have canceled our Jet pack with Verizon. What does this mean? Well, the little device that allows us to access the internet is deactivated meaning, I can post using a tablet (a wee bit more challenging ) or wait until I can use my computer ( with a proper keyboard) at a Wi-Fi free location. For us it’s Starbucks. Love that Skinny Latte and a Flat White.

Here is the list featuring a great use of leftovers.

Sunday: Cottage Pie with garlic toast….and a G and T later on.


Monday: Leftovers. For lunch that day we used leftover roasted chicken from a few days before. I chunk it then mix with a can of black beans, cooked rice and a can of tomatoes. Great hot lunch for work!

Tuesday: Chinese Takeaway! One of my favorites. Shrimp and vegetables with Spring rolls.

Wednesday: Breakfast for dinner. Eggs, bacon and pancakes.


Love me some pancakes!


Thursday: Sautéed scallops, pole beans, Knorr noodles and garlic toast.


Friday: Grilled Flank Steak, broccoli and cheese sauce.


Saturday: Quesadillas with the leftover flank steak.


How was your week of eating and menu planning?

I'm so impressed!! And envious. I can't stick to anything 'regularly" And they look so good--YUM! and PS love a gin and tonic!

Yum Yum Yum Yum Yum!

I'm trying to be as consistent as you with this meal planning thing, but so far I'm not doing a good job. Later today I'll make a plan starting for the 19th to go with Readers Workout and hopefully I'll do it every week.

C'mon Debbie, you are doing wonderfully with the Cookbook Countdown! I'll have a G&T with you tonight. Have you ever had Hendricks? I like it much better than other gins.

Vicki, I haven't been faithful to Reader's Workout and really need to get back to walking. I still like seeing how others are doing there though.

I guess I could use a few lessons from you, Tina. Not only are you organized, everything sounds so yummy!

I've never planned meals, ever! I'm thinking it will never happen. However, you keep tempting me with these organizational skills of yours and you just never know, lol...

Thanks for sharing, Tina...

Louise, I have to have a list so I know what to purchase when I shop. But I have always planned out weekly menus. It's not set in stone and it's not specific to certain days.

Seven Hour Lamb with White Beans <br>{ make that less than 2 hours in the Instant Pot}</br>

It's good to get back to posting about food after a short break. Next year I will be getting a flu shot; this bout knocked me for a loop...
