Menu Check up- How have I done

Monday we had the crockpot pork loin. I just put it in the crockpot all day with salt and pepper. I did add about a cup of water because I like extra juice to use for gravy or to add some with meat to freeze. I served it with carrots and mashed potatoes. I packaged two sandwich bags packed full for BBQ sandwiches and the pork enchiladas and put in the freezer.

Last night we had nachos for dinner. Just nachos, melted cheese, taco seasoned ground beef (from the freezer) and tomatoes.

Tonight we'll be eating at church.

So that brings me to the rest of the week. I really want to make the enchiladas tomorrow. I have a very full day though and am not sure it will work out for sure yet. So if not, it will be made on Friday. If I don't have time tomorrow we'll probably do beans and cornbread with sliced tomatoes.

So far, I over planned. Which is okay because everything I planned was from my freezer or fridge. I didn't go buy anything special to cook anything. We're down to very little grocery money for the month. So I am planning on really trying to only get milk and bread. I would like to catch some chicken if I can on sale. I haven't seen what's on sale for the week at our smaller grocery stores around here. They usually are the ones to run the best deals on meats.

I also fixed some egg salad to have for my lunch the other day. I had never actually made egg salad before. I'm not even sure I made it the right way but it was pretty good. I just boiled 6 eggs, mashed well with a fork. Then I added mayo, dill relish, salt and pepper and a handful of shredded cheese. I grilled sourdough bread and put the egg salad on it and topped with two slices of bacon and yellow tomato. I really liked it and I ate it for two days. Then Princess finished it off before she went to school this morning. She loves stuff like that. I would love to see your egg salad recipes! I am definitely going to be making this again and would love to try other variations.

Hope you all are having a great week!

God bless,
Amanda
