What's on the Menu?
On my way home (from picking up my car at the shop after a full day at work) tonight, I stopped at my favorite local produce place to get a few things for the weekend.
I have to say, we are very lucky to have such a great store nearby; the produce is fresh and they have a huge variety, including quite a few things I've never even heard of but can't wait to try; they carry pantry and refrigerated items, such as jumbo bags of rice, canned items, spices, tortillas, cheese and eggs and milk; and (AND!) they have freshly cut meat at great prices. They completely won me over many months ago, when my usual little meat place did not have flank steak; I went to the produce place for my regular veggie list, and asked if they carried flank steak; they asked what size I needed, and then they went right to the back and cut it to order! I made whatever recipe I was in the mood for that day, and it was delicious!
Return to current programming:
So, meat-wise, here is what I picked up -
5 large boneless skinless chicken breasts
2+ pounds of ground beef
1 pound or so of steak strips
I picked up a few veggies to add to what we already have at home, and we have plenty of pantry items; based on this, I've planned the following meals:
SAT ~ Easy Chicken Parmesan over Noodles, with a Salad
SUN ~ Burgers on the Grill and Homemade Potato Chips
MON ~ Pepper Steak over Rice, with a Salad
I'll be posting recipes with pictures as we go!
Happy Weekend to you all!
