Meal Plan

This week I am seeing how far I can stretch a pork roast. Well, not exactly, but it may work out that way.  Saturday I cooked two pork roasts.  I did this because I have a busy week with two Dr.’s appointment, both late in the day and a  few other appointments I have to go to.  I also need to do my big once a month shopping trip later this week. So my afternoons are really busy.

I knew there would be several days that I would need something quick for dinner.  I decided that if I cooked up a bunch of meat I could serve it for several days, several different ways.  I hope to get four meals out of it, including the one we ate last night.  If I can’t then we will have breakfast for dinner one night.

Here is the plan:


eggs and oatmeal bars, I am trying a new recipe for oatmeal bars


homemade yogurt and toast, if you are interested in how I make my yogurt leave a comment. If there is interest I will do  a post on it.

smoothies and eggs

pancakes or waffles


sandwiches, chips, melon, and cookies

egg salad sandwiches




barb. dinner with mac and cheese

barbecue pork

barbecue pork pizza

barbecue pork over potatoes

thai beef over rice

chicken sandwich

chicken sandwiches, salad

roasted potatoes with butter

fish sandwiches, melon, and roasted potatoes

ribs, rolls, and vegetables

  1. I definitely want to know how you make yogurt.

  2. oh – I’d love to know what you do to make yogurt. I’m a chicken when it comes to making it because I know too much microbiology…. I’m afraid I’ll not keep things at the right temp, and oops…!

    I’m also interested in your oatmeal bars recipe 🙂

  3. I’d love to see how you do your yogurt, too! I make it myself, but it would be great to see if there’s a better way to do it.

    And I agree, let us know how the oatmeal bars turn out!
