Meal Planning for the Week

September 15th, 2013 at 06:31 pm

Are they ever going to fix the posting problem here? You should be able to spend more than 3 minutes typing a post without it disappearing into the ether the moment you post it. It feels like it's been going on for over a year now. Frustrating. /rant

I know I am usually good at making everything from scratch, but today I was just exhausted. I think I'm on the cusp of a cold. I really, really wanted to get Round Table Pizza, but I managed to resist. I did have to go to the store to get milk and produce and while there I noticed they had some cheap cheese pizzas on sale with a sell by date of today. This is the type the store makes in-house, not the kind in the freezer section.

So I bought a couple of cheap cheese pizzas and then once home I doctored them up with pepperoni, onions, and bell pepper strips. It's not RT and it's not homemade, but spending six bucks on the pizzas and adding toppings I already had at home gave me an easy pizza that I didn't have to put much time or effort into. With the toppings I used I probably spent a grand total of $8. And one of those pizzas I put in the freezer for another day. So $4 spent for dinner for 3 of us. Not too shabby.

Because I am feeling under the weather or like I am about to be, I am planning a mostly crockpot and soup pot week. I figure if I have easy crockpot dinners planned, I won't be tempted to do takeout.

Crockpot Chicken stew (boneless skinless chicken thighs, cut into one inch pieces, carrots cut into one inch pieces, potatoes, cut into one inch pieces, green beans snapped into one inch pieces, a can of corn, one pint of rabbit stock, and I will mix in some leftover rabbit gravy at the end to thicken it)

Crockpot Beef pot roast
Microwave Baked potatoes

Baked potato soup
Italian prunes


Crockpot chicken (whole)
Microwave baked potatoes
Green beans

Chicken and noodles

    I, too, resisted the pizza temptation last night. My team (the cardiac Texans) was on about 9:00 pm (local here), so it was a perfect time to watch and eat pizza.

    But I resisted. Most folks aren't aware that one can get pizza delivered from Round Table, Papa Johns, Pizza Hut, and Dominoes here in Dubai. You can even get McDonald's to deliver now. They were the last hold-out on delivery food. They call it "McDelivery" like that's original. :/

    Ive gotten in the habit of ALWAYS hitting the copy button before I submit my post. I lost too many in the past.

    Ray--I do hit the copy button, but it still is frustrating. They seemed to have it fixed for a couple of weeks there and now it is right back to being messed up again.

    Yes, it is frustrating - especially when I forget to do the ctrl-c thing before submitting ...
