Dinners this Past Week

This is what we've had for dinner this past week at the Frugal Workshop. We ate one dinner out of the house this week at our favorite Chinese buffet. Other than that, we ate at home this week. I made a large roast on Sunday and made three meals out of this week and we still have some left. It sure helps to save money when we choose to eat at home verses eating out in a restaurant or fast food.


Today, I made the Beef Sirloin Tip Roast that I bought at Sam's Club last month for $15.23. This was a 5 pound roast and there is plenty left over for other meals, so looks like it will be reinvented into something else and on the menu again later this week.

Corn & Green Beans with Onions & Evoo
Grape Tomatoes fresh from the garden
Sweet Iced Tea ~ The House Wine of the South

Repeat of Sunday's Dinner

We came home from work/school and there was no power on at the house, 
so we settled for Sandwiches with chips for dinner.


We had erands to run in town, so I treated my daughter and myself to the Chinese Buffet. Total cost was $16 and totally worth it. :)

  1. It all looks so good! Isn't it amazing how expensive roasts have become? I'm glad they can stretch, too!

  2. Oh my, yes, Shara! They are so expensive now. We don't eat them very often because of that. I'm glad they stretch too. :)

  3. Hi Belinda,
    Between you and Shara, I'm just not going to last until dinner tonight. That all looks so good. I wish I could have been there at the Chinese Buffet with you!
    I need a snack!

    1. My daughter loves the Chinese Buffet, Lili. And I like it too, but I eat the same things every time. lol They do have a really nice salad bar with the best fresh fruit. I cold just eat that and be satisfied. :)
