What's Cookin' - Feb 24 - Mar 2

I don't think this past week bore more than a passing resemblance to my planned menu, nor was it particularly inspired (witness the lack of entries!) - sometimes it's just hard to predict mood and opportunity, and it was a mildly difficult week all around.  But we must eat, and this was what we ate:

Sun Feb 17
Mexican Crustless Quiche
(spicy sausage, black olives, cheddar cheese and jalepenos, topped with salsa)

Michael spent the day starting a batch of beer, and I started my bone broth.

Mon Feb 18
Michael ate out with a group of friends - I was sick and skipped dinner.

Tue Feb 19
Bunless Burgers with Lettuce, Tomato and Cheese
Potato Chips (hey, it happens)

Wed Feb 20
Beef Stew with Mushrooms - this was simpler than I'd planned, but still very good.  Some of my newly made bone broth, cubes of chuck roast, some onion and celery and mushrooms, along with some rosemary, thyme and sage, simmered for a couple hours  until the meat was tender.

Thu Feb 21
Leftover Stew with Cauliflower added

Fri Feb 22
Eat out - we were both tired, and this wasn't planned.  We did Mexican and I cheated with a flour tortilla that kept me up all night with acid reflux. I *cannot* cheat with wheat. Period.

Sat Feb 23
Baked Chicken with Parsley-Lemon-Garlic Sauce
Sliced Oranges

Now, this week is the end of the month and we are trying not to spent too much more on groceries until it's March, so we're making do - we are fine on meat, less so on fresh veggies and such.  Here's the plan:

Sun Feb 24
Leftover Chicken
Salad with Orange Slices and Walnuts

Mon Feb 25
Paleo Pancakes

Tue Feb 26
Pork Carnitas
Coconut Flour Tortillas
Salsa and Fixings

Wed Feb 27
Leftover Pork

Thu Feb 28
Cornish Hen
Biscuits (make enough for tomorrow)

Fri Mar 1
Cheeseburger Soup

Sat Mar 2 (Grocery Shop/ Go to Farm for Meat)
Dinner party a friend's house
