I’m back for another week of “What We Ate.” This week we decided to cut back one recipe from our normal 4. We’ve been really bad about letting leftovers go to waste, so we decided to cut back a little to see if that helps (and it did!).
What We Made Last Week:
We had so much food but I was so distracted the only picture I got were these last minute hot dogs I decided to throw in at the end. We had burgers and potato salad and pasta salad and anything else your heart could desire.
This looked a little less appetizing than I was hoping, but it was so good. Recipe here.
Usually, pot roast is made with chuck roast. But we had a pork loin that we didn’t know what else to do with so we threw it in there and called it a pot roast. Honestly, it tasted pretty much the same (the texture was different but it still tasted pot roasty thanks to the Gravy Master I put in it). It made enough food to feed us for like a year.
I’m excited because this week, two out of the three recipes we’re using are SkinnyTaste recipes! SkinnyTaste is by far my favorite food blog, and I’ve never been disappointed with one of Gina’s dishes. (Also, she has a new cookbook coming out soon that I’m dying to get my hands on). Here are the recipes we’re using:
Our grocery haul was pretty huge this week. We woke up early on Monday to hit the grocery store before Ian had to start working so we definitely had that “shopping on an empty stomach” mentality. We spent about $20 more than usual but we got ourselves a few treats. I wanted to get some more fruit (including apriocot/plum hybrids) and also a large sleeve of cookie dough ended up in our cart *shrug.* Go figure!
