David and I sat down together last night for our weekly planning session. It’s so helpful to know what the week ahead holds when it comes to planning our menu. We have fewer meetings and appointments this week and he’s just traveling one night. That means I will be cooking a bit more this week.

Dee’s Weekly Menu
- Brazilian Black Beans (Instant Pot recipe)
David will be out of town on business. I’m trying to use up things from the freezer so I’ll probably just make myself a smoothie (lots of frozen bananas in the freezer!).
- Lentil tacos (Instant Pot recipe)
- chips and salsa
This will be our date night. I’m not sure where we will go to eat but I’m thinking it might be nice to go out of town. We’ll see…
We are planning to go out and listen to live music but we’ll eat dinner at home first.
- roast beef
- mashed potatoes
- homemade bread or rolls
I’ll use up the leftover roast and veggies to make:
- vegetable beef soup with dumplings
Our usual – Mexican food after church and save half for dinner.
So tell me, what’s on your menu this week? I’m planning to bake some bread this week – do you ever do that? I’ve gotten out of the habit but there is nothing quite like the smell of bread baking. Yum! I’m also going to try to get some sourdough starter going this week. I let mine die years ago and I miss it.
Do you want to eat a healthy, organic, grass fed diet but don’t think you can afford it? My friend, Victoria of A Modern Homestead, explains how they do it on less than $200 a month. Click here to find out how:
I’m loving my Instant Pot. If you decide to purchase one, I’d be forever grateful if you’d use my affiliate link. It doesn’t cost you a penny more but I receive a small portion of the purchase price from Amazon. Thank you for supporting Life With Dee!
