This is one of the dinners I made this past week. We had leftovers enough for one person to have lunch the following day.  I worked two days this past week, but did not go out to eat and instead cooked dinner at home every night. 

Our dinners this week:


Baked Potato Bar

Grilled Chicken
Mashed Potatoes
Green Beans

Pedernale's Potatoes
Green Beans with Onions in EVOO

Chicken Tenders
Green Peas

Baked Potato Bar

We started and ended the week with Baked Potatoes. What can I say except we love them and they are an easy dinner for me. Today is going to be a very busy day. I have several loads of laundry to catch up on and cleaning. I hope you have a wonderful Saturday and would like to say thank you for reading my blog. :)

  1. Hi Belinda!
    Looks good and warming on a cool day. Yes, it's turned cool-ish here in Seattle, already.
    Saturday is laundry day around here too. It's the only day of the week when I can get everyone to bring me their dirties. I also have some sewing jobs to do. And I hope to get outside and enjoy beautiful sunshine while it's here.
    Have a great Saturday!

  2. Thanks, Lili. :) I also have some mending that I need to work on today along with several other things. Glad cooler weather has come your way. Wish it would come here soon. :)

    Thanks for stopping by. :)

  3. Oh, they look good! I have to admit to having a particular weakness for

    Good job on the working and still cooking at home every night. I find that the hardest part when I work seasonally with my hubby. I rely heavily on the crockpot when I'm smart and take out when I'm not so smart.

  4. Hi Shara!

    Thank you, I really struggle with eating out when I'm working. It's just so much easier to eat out and I give in way to easy. This is one area where I am working on it. :)
