Another week, another menu! We have a lot going on this week and it would be all to easy to slack on the home cooking thing. But I’m determined to keep meals out to a minimum right now. By keeping things simple and making use of my Instant Pot, I’ll be able to provide tasty meals at home. Let’s take a look at what’s on our menu this week.

This is the only night of this week we don’t have anywhere we have to go. We’ll have a cozy dinner of soup and homemade biscuits then play gin rummy for awhile. We must treasure these quiet evenings at home!
- split pea soup
- homemade biscuits
- orange slices
David and I have back-to-back meetings this afternoon/evening for our foundation and other local events committees. I don’t want to eat out afterwards as we so often do when we have these meetings so I’m making use of the slow cook feature of my Instant Pot.
- roast, potatoes, carrots and onions in the Instant Pot
- leftover biscuits
I have choir rehearsal at 7 p.m. so we will need to eat a bit early. I plan to bake the hamburger buns early in the day, as well as make the coleslaw. It won’t take long to bake the french fries and fry the hamburger patties.
- hamburgers on homemade buns
- french fries
- homemade coleslaw
David and I have a political meeting at 6 p.m. That’s just too early for us to eat beforehand. If the meeting doesn’t last too terribly long we’ll eat at home. Otherwise we may pick up something in town.
- BLT sandwiches on homemade bread
- soup (leftover split pea)
Date night! We’ll go out to dinner first and then to Broadway Tonite Live! at our local university.
It will have been a busy week and I doubt I’ll feel much like cooking anything very elaborate. This sounds like the perfect time for “Breakfast for Dinner”.
- homemade waffles
- orange juice
We’ll eat out after church and save half for dinner.
