The truth is, I don’t have much meat in my freezer. In fact, at the beginning of this week I had three pounds of ground beef in my freezer. That doesn’t go far for a family of seven! Never fear, Target had chuck roast and steak on sale for $2.99/pound. We stocked up, as much as our finances allowed. In other words, we got enough for the week, ha! I managed to make a menu for the week using the few things I had in my pantry and the beef we bought. Consequently, we’re having a CHUCK week, with beef every night! This isn’t normal for us, but “poor” people eat what they can get, right??
Sunday: Roast, carrots, potatoes and onions in the Crock Pot were ready when we got home from church. I made gravy.
Monday: Chili, buttermilk cornbread
Tuesday: Soft tacos, refried beans
Wednesday: We eat at church
Thursday: Broiled steak, baked potato, garlic bread, salad
Friday: Beef and broccoli, rice
Saturday: We have a dinner and auction at church
So, there it is. How to eat beef seven times a week!
